Filming of "High School Musical 3" in Salt Lake City has attracted people from all over the country.

When the movie hits theaters in October, look for the boy on the skateboard. "I was just going in, and they filmed it," Wade Rogers said.

Wade and his older sister Courtney came from Florida to be extras in the movie now filming at East High School. "Zac Efron was walking in the hall next to me, and I bumped right into him, right into him," Courtney said.

Their mom, Jean Rogers, and her sister, Linda Orton, came too. "I had a wonderful time. Utah's fantastic," Orton said.

Now the Rogers hope their names are in the credits or at least that their scenes stay in the movie.
