Over the past few weeks, we’ve been visiting with Iowa filmmakers whose work will be featured on a new Iowa Public Television program called “The Film Lounge,” which premieres at 10 p.m. on Feb. 12.
A number of them are planning to attend preview parties on Feb. 5 in Iowa City, Feb. 9 in Des Moines and Feb. 11 in Sioux City -- and by all means, you’re free to go, too. The events are free and should be a lot of fun, thanks to the show’s producers at IPTV, Produce Iowa and the Iowa Arts Council.
Right now, though, let’s hear from the West Des Moines filmmaker Greg Best, whose “Film Lounge” contribution is a fictional drama called “Lost and Found,” which explores anxiety and loss by following one father’s search for his daughter.
Greg was born in Tampa, Fla., and eventually came to Iowa -- first to Norwalk, then to West Des Moines. He’s a self-taught filmmaker whose work ranges from drama to comedy, and he’s the driving force behind the “Teen Cop” series featured on the comedy website “Funny or Die.”
