  Kyle and Carlos Plummer are the award winning student filmmaker brother duo based locally in the Central Coast. From a young age, their passion for filmmaking and story telling has been evident. Their film prior to the Harald Bauer documentary was Tour of Honor, a feature length documentary following a local Honor Flight to Washington D.C, documenting the veterans and their stories. It was an Official Selection in the 2015 Docutah Film Festival, the 2015 San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, and the 2015 Chicago International Children’s Film Festival.

Among their other previous projects are the shorts Welcome Home, about the local Welcome Home Military Heroes organization and their story, and Atomic Soldier, about Richard Umphrey, a veteran of the nuclear testing sites in Nevada.
Their most recent effort, The Nine Lives of Harald Bauer was an Official Selection of the 2016 Docutah Film Festival and a winner of Best Central Coast Student Film in the 2016 San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.

While Kyle is away at film school in college furthering his skills, Carlos, a sophomore in Cambria high school, continues to make documentaries about local subjects and topics of interest.

Dennis Gage came back to Estrella Warbirds Museum the first week of April, 2017 to film the Woodland Auto Display for yet another show later this season. We will post show times when we receive notice.

...And In Other National News:

If you have visited the Woodland Auto Display this past year at Estella Warbirds Museum, you would have seen this Robert Yates car #28, diven by Davey Allison, on display. As of January 7th, it is on loan to an incredible organization. For just the third time since it opened in 2010, the NASCAR Hall of Fame will have a new feature displayed on its Glory Road exhibit -- one that highlights the most legendary drivers in the history of the sport. It takes some drivers years to make their mark on NASCAR’s premier series. In 1987, however, second-generation driver Davey Allison made headlines in his first full season. His five poles and two wins led to Rookie of the Year honors and a record that would stand for 12 seasons. Robert Yates, who served as engine builder on the car, took over as owner in 1989. He kept Allison on as driver and launched Robert Yates Racing

You can read more about the exhibit and view a video in the AutoWeek.com article which talks about this car, click here. How cool is that? Thanks Dick Woodland, for taking a critical part in this project!
