Film Commission elects board officers
The Monterey County Film Commission board of directors has elected officers for the next fiscal year. Alán Vasquez, location scout and producer with Locationsscouting.com, will serve as president. Also elected were Troy Kingshaven, vice president; Kathy Eckerson, secretary; Garland Thompson, treasurer; and Jeff Clark, chairperson.
The film commission works to boost the economy throughout Monterey County by attracting and assisting on-location film production. Each year an average of $4 million in revenue comes to local communities from the film business.
The board is seeking additional volunteer board members from all parts of Monterey County, especially the Salinas Valley and South County.
