Mutual of Omaha is in Wichita to shoot aha moments

WICHITA — Have you always wanted to be in pictures? Mutual of Omaha is in Wichita to give you a shot.

The company is here to collect stories for potential use in its series of commercials featuring aha moments that have changed people's lives.

The idea is to "inspire the rest of the country as well," says spokeswoman Brittany Thoms.

The company has a mobile video unit set up at the Farm & Art Market Plaza downtown.

After you share your story on video, the company will send you either a 30- or 60-second clip in a few days. You can e-mail the link to friends. The top 75 most-viewed moments will go to a nationwide vote for the best spots, and the top 10 will air as commercials next spring.

"It's really quite fun," Thoms says.
