Cinematic Arts & Technology Media Production Specialist and Lecturer Chris Carpenter recently elected to the Monterey County Film Commission Board of Directors.  Carpenter, a filmmaker, vice president of production at Honest Engine Films of Monterey, and New York Emmy Award Recipient, will serve a three-year term.  

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 $126 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 the Salinas Valley and North County, and those with nonprofit experience and diverse fields of interest.  For more information, call 831-646-0910, email, or download an application form at
