Learn about making movies on the Central Coast at the SLO International Film Festival

Posted: Updated:

The San Luis Obispo International Film Festival begins Tuesday and runs through Sunday, featuring dozens of well-known movies and smaller films.

Local film maker Robin Chilton tells KSBY that he has noticed more locals are trying their hand at movie making.

"I will say that, yes, there are a lot more people doing it and I think movie making has become a much more accessible thing in general, so it's becoming a growing scene everywhere," he said.

Chilton has shown his documentaries at the festival before. This year, he is speaking to film makers to explain how to shoot movies on the Central Coast, sharing stories about his time in the business and mapping out the best filming locations.

"You go into something like this, and I don't really have a script at all. When people ask me questions I answer them based on my own experiences," he said.

Chilton's panel discussion, titled "Why Shoot in SLO?" will take place on Saturday, March 19 at 11:00 a.m. in the Festival Tent. He will be joined by Kylee Jepsen, Visit San Luis Obispo County and Film Commission, and Hillary Amborne, Location Scout/Creative Director for SeaChange Studio. The moderator will be screenwriter/producer David Vienna.
