The most accomplished area musician in the realm of film and television? C'mon, that's an easy one. It's Toadies guitarist Clark Vogeler, long an Emmy winner thanks to his work on the editing team behind TV's Project Runway.
And, now, another cool feather in the guitarist's cap: The documentary film, Bombay Beach, for which Vogeler again served as a contributing editor, just got named the Best Documentary at the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. The film, about the people living in a poor community on California's man-made Salton Sea, features a score from Beirut's Zach Condon and songs from Bob Dylan, as you can see from the poster to the right.
Alas, no Toadies tracks. Yet, somehow, I get the feeling that Vogeler doesn't mind. Check out the trailer for the film after the jump.
