David Selby invests in West Virginia's motion picture industry

David Selby and producer Jeff Tinnell are launching the equity based management investment fund Dream Factory LLC, designed to nurture filmmaking in their home state of West Virginia.

Chances are you already know Selby, who launched his professional acting career with DARK SHADOWS back in 1968. Tinnell is a producer and co-founder of The Allegheny Image Factory, which produces an incredibly array of media projects in West Virginia (including the Eisner award-nominated graphic novel, FEAST OF THE SEVEN FISHES.)

Dream Factory will be headquartered in Selby's hometown of Morgantown, W.Va., which is also home to Allegheny Image Factory.

"You don't have to be in Los Angeles anymore," Tinnell told The Charleston Gazette. "You can be anywhere and work."

Selby has had an active presence in his home state's arts community since his days as a student at West Virginia College. Most recently, he portrayed Abraham Lincoln in a production staged during the annual FestivALL in Charleston, W.Va.
