LOS ANGELES — If you haven’t heard of documentary filmmaker Charlie Minn before, you’re not alone. After all, he’s not one of the legends among Hollywood filmmakers.

Minn, who lives in New York and El Paso, Texas, isn’t well known in hockey circles, either. But he is currently in the Los Angeles area promoting his new film, Voice of the King: The Bob Miller Story. a documentary about the career of legendary Los Angeles Kings play-by-play announcer Bob Miller, which opens at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on December 5.

Despite the fact that he is not a big name Hollywood filmmaker, he is a prolific documentary filmmaker, focusing on the “true crime” genre, most notably on crimes that have not gotten a lot of media exposure.
