Like many of us, Cassandra Hesseltine was bewitched as a child by the magic she saw on the silver screen. Like fewer of us, Hesseltine has been spending her adult years working numerous jobs within the film industry. She currently heads the nonprofit Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission, serving as a sherpa and concierge to producers and directors who need a little North Coast magic to tell their stories.

In this Through The Eyes of Women episode, Hesseltine talks about the realities of her fantastical job, and what a film commission does for a community.
