WVPB's Larry Dowling Named 2017 WV Filmmaker of the Year


West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s Larry Dowling has been named the 2017 West Virginia Filmmaker of the Year. 

As Director of Video Production Chuck Roberts explains, “Larry Dowling was named that because of being so talented in the creative and highly-skilled filmmaker jobs. Within the last year or so, he’s worked as Gaffer for two big indie features filmed in this state – using large truck “grip truck packages,” expertly and wisely. For West Virginia Public Broadcasting, he has worked in key positions on most of our significant productions in the last few decades.”


From working on the two-hour documentary “American Experience: The Mine Wars” to live streaming productions for the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame and Mountain Stage, Larry nails the shot and builds relationships along the way. 



Congratulations, Larry Dowling.
