Jay Leno’s Garage Producer Kico Velarde – From Broke to Emmy Winner
The Cinderella story that is Kico Velarde’s life is remarkable. From being a struggling out of work editor to becoming the toast of the Cannes International Film Festival to winning an Emmy for producing Jay Leno’s Garage. Crazy!!!
His film PVC-1 – was accepted into the Director’s Fortnight at the Cannes International Film Festival and was nominated for the Camera D’ Or Award in 2007. He became the toast of the festival but barely had two cents to rub together as he spent his last cash on tickets to the festival.
