6A Wednesday, March 170 2010 Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Johnsville sets the scene for Smucker':00 ad Snowmaking equipment from southern California came to Johnsville for the Smucker's commer- cial -- just in case. Location manager Jof Hanwright said that they dusted snow around the houses the day before filming began, but Mother Nature stepped in and did a much better job for both days of filming. That's luck. Photos by Diana Jorgenson Diana Jorgenson Portola Editor djorgenson@plu When the film crew of The Cartel, based in Hollywood, came to film a commercial in Plumas County, they brought snowmaking equip- ment. But they didn't need it. Not in Johnsville. The crew was making a Christmas commercial for Smucker's jams and jellies and was in Johnsville film- ing March 9 and 10, with a smaller crew prepping the site on Monday. They were gifted with a couple of inches of bright new snow on top of the drifts already piled high in Johnsville just the day before filming and received a second dusting the night before the second day of filming. The commercial portrays Tim and Richard Smucker, now in their 90s, as young- sters in Ohio in the 1950s and Johnsville provided just the ambiance of that earlier decade. Hunter Knoeche, from Dallas, Texas, played the el- der Smucker while Nolan Eggleston, Milwaukee, por- trayed the younger. The boys are apparently look- alikes of the Smucker broth- ers in their youths and this is the third year that they have portrayed them in com- mercials. Hunter's mother See Smuckers, page 7A Nolan Eggleston and Hunter Knoeche have portrayed the young versions of Tim and Richard Smucker for three years of commercials. The boys patiently stood their "mark" for long periods of time during set-ups.
