Monterey County Film Commission elects new officers and adds Dot Findlater to Board of Directors

The nonprofit Monterey County Film Commission’s board of directors has elected its officers for the next fiscal year, and also appointed Dot Findlater of Monterey to serve a three-year term as board director.

The new president is Paula Joy MacNab, a realtor with David Lyng Real Estate.  Other officers are Paul Ventura, vice president; Jeff Clark, secretary; Camille Stanfield Polson, treasurer; and Julia Avery-Rudey, president emeritus.  Board members Pete Bassett and Garland Thompson were re-elected to serve three-year terms.

Newest board member Findlater is the founder and CEO of Mirror Images Global Entertainment LLC, an agency and talent management firm for professional celebrity look-alikes, who has managed and developed talent for film and TV production statewide and in Europe for more than 27 years.

The Monterey County Film Commission was established by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors in 1987 to attract and facilitate film productions for economic development. The film commission estimates more than $129 million in positive economic impact has come into Monterey County communities from on-location film productions since it began.

The organization seeks volunteer board members from all parts of Monterey County, especially Salinas and South County, and those with fundraising experience and diverse fields of interest.  For more information, call 831-646-0910, email, or download an application form at
