The High School band featured a real band - The Chelmsford High School Marching Band from Chelmsford, Massachusetts. The movie was filmed in and around the Boston Area. The scene with the practice of the band was filmed in South Boston (those familiar with landmarks will recognize a few). While the band was practicing, dust was thrown into fans to create a "dust bowl" effect as the movie takes place in Indiana. See more
