Daryl Kemsley signs on as Executive Producer for the filming of It’s Happening Right Here

Salt Lake City, UT – March 4, 2020 – SelfStart CEO, Daryl Kemsley, has recently joined Emmy® Award Winning Director, Nick Nanton, in the filming of It’s Happening Right Here, a new documentary that sheds light and awareness on the more than 300,000 American minors being lured into the sex trade every year.

Daryl Kemsley joined the Emmy® Award Winning DNA Films crew for a day of principle filming in San Diego in late January. During the filming, Kemsley was on set for Nanton’s interview with Tim Ballard, the founder of Operation Underground Railroad. Ballard and his organization will be highlighted in the film for their work in fighting trafficking, specifically in cases that involve women and children being brought into the U.S. from other countries.

Kemsley then joined the film crew for a behind-the-scenes tour of San Diego’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. The Task Force Commander spoke with producers about cases involving minors who are trafficked online and through social media. The crew filmed as an investigator with San Diego ICAC gave Kemsley and his fellow producers a demonstration with one of the K-9s the task force uses for detection of electronic devices that store child pornography.

The interviews with Ballard and San Diego ICAC investigators will serve as two elements in this film which aims to give an overall view of the many ways trafficking is happening here in the U.S.

Coming Fall 2020, It’s Happening Right Here follows the men and women who have joined together to make it their mission to rescue the millions of women, men, and children trapped in sex trafficking and make a difference in the lives of victims of this trade that is happening right here in our own backyards, in America.
