Voted “San Diego’s Funniest Person,” Dallas McLaughlin hosts FILM INDIEGO, a six-part series, which takes an inside look at the growing film industry right here in America’s finest city.
In the premiere episode, we take a look at some award-winning documentaries from last year’s San Diego Film Awards.
Our courageous host goes diving off the coast of San Diego with cinematographer and producer Elke Specker ("Diver’s Backyard"), as we get a firsthand look at what it takes to film deep in the Pacific Ocean.
Next, McLaughlin joins American Dream Cinema producers Devin and Jeanne Scott, cruising San Diego Bay as they talk about their desert documentary “The LEGend of Peg Leg’s Leg”- winner of Best Short Documentary at the 2015 San Diego Film Awards.
McLaughlin will also chill out with the local surf community at the San Diego Surf Film Festival, before heading north to Oceanside to meet up with one of San Diego’s trailblazing women filmmakers, Carly Starr Brullo-Niles.
FILM INDIEGO is produced through the Film Consortium San Diego, a social venture dedicated to building a film industry in San Diego from the ground up.
This series airs Thursdays, Jan. 28-March 3, 2016 at 11 p.m. on KPBS-TV. Episodes will be available for online viewing after broadcast.
