Make a movie this summer!

We’ll give you everything you need to create your own movie and tell an important story – even if you’ve never picked up a camera before. You’ll learn the ins and outs of production in a small group of future filmmakers like you. Your class will be led by incredible instructors and teaching artists who have taught professionals at Pixar, San Francisco Chronicle, 826 Valencia and hundreds more companies who trust BAVC Media to support people of all generations. After three weeks you’ll walk away with your own video to share!

We have moved our Summer Intensive online! Join us remotely for a four-week environmental justice focused filmmaking program for high school-aged youth between the ages of 14-18, from San Francisco and across the Bay Area. Much of the educational content will mirror our educational programming offered through BAVC Media’s Next Gen program, offered during the academic school year.

Participants will develop skills in video and audio production within a collaborative environment, apply those skills to develop a short documentary video project tied to an environmental justice theme and connect the production of the short video to a social impact plan.
