Film producers looking for stories from 1989 quake series

Do you have any special memories of the 1989 earthquake that changed the lives of many of us living in the Bay Area a quarter of a century ago?

Electric City Entertainment is putting together an exploration of the Loma Prieta quake that hit just moments before the scheduled start of Game 3 of the Series between the A’s and Giants.

The film will be the second in ESPN’s 30 for 30 series produced by Jamie Patricof, whose first ESPN film was Straight Outta L.A.

This current film will be looking back at the 1989 series from the perspective of 25 years having elapsed. In addition to using archival footage, the producers are looking for personal and previously untold stories from the fans’ perspective.

If you have a story to tell about that day and that World Series and are interesting in sharing it, you can write it down or out together a video and send it to thedaytheseriesstopped@gmail.com.
