Dayton, you are going to look good on the big screen. 

Dayton natives Stephen Levinson and his younger brother Joel Moss Levinson are filming "Boy Band: The (Heart)throb Story” in Dayton, Kettering and Yellow Springs. 

We dropped by the set at Refraze Recording Studio in Kettering for a behind the scene look at the movie as it is being made. 

Co-written by the brothers, the film -- which is the brothers' first full-length feature -- will cost about $125,000 to make during a two-week period that began Oct. 15.

Nearly $20,000 was raised by a Kickstarter campaign.

Scenes for the film have been shot at Dayton Art Institute, the Dayton Masonic Temple and numerous other places. About 25 people are serving as actors and crew members in the movie.

Several area residents have signed on to play extras and local students have volunteered to help on the project as production assistants. 

The Levinsons said they are proud to show off their hometown.
