KCSM in San Mateo, no longer a PBS member station due to financial woes, “plans to fill the PBS void” by airing more local shows including its Spotlight! series, in which high-school filmmakers create three- to five-minute flicks, according to The Daily Journal. Some of the aspiring movie mavens are as young as 14. They’re mentored by a staff of pros including producers, screenwriters and special-effects experts and get to premiere their work on KCSM.
