In recent weeks, filmmaker Larry Nimmer has made available several short videos that depict various aspects of life in Carpinteria during the COVID-19 pandemic. Most recently, he shot footage of downtown Carpinteria from the Fourth of July holiday weekend and included interviews with City Manager Dave Durflinger and Carpinteria Cemetery District General Manager Mike Damron. Sponsored by the City of Carpinteria, Nimmer’s video series entitled “Carpinteria in the COVID-19 Pandemic” began chronicling local life during the pandemic in early April. The full collection of videos is available on the City’s webpage at
