General BAVC

Benjamin Marlowe
I began my relationship with BAVC through the TechSF scholarship for the Motion Graphic Certificate. I had recently finished my MFA at California College for the Arts, where I created a number of hand animated films. After graduation, I found some independent work making music videos, but found cel animation to be too much work for too little money. BAVC offered me numerous classes in motion graphics and I was able to find a way to bridge my hand animated work with computer graphics. They worked with me in-depth on a couple videos I created as I earned the certificate as well. I found they helped me focus on refining myself as a creative professional. I was able to think tactically about my approach to the market and how to make a living doing what I love. I actively apply the knowledge I gained at BAVC everyday: in addition to regular contract work (which includes everything from infographics to shorts), I am working on my second independent film and regularly submit my work to film festivals nationally.
