Fall Media Camp is ON!

On day 1 of filmmaking, we reviewed the camera and the shotlist. We asked the returners to recreate some crucial shots that we’ll be using all term and here’s what they came up with:

“San Francisco Love” Video in SFist

Andrew Dalton of SFist gave a nice little shout-out to one of the music videos to come out of our summer media camp.


Zoom In #24: Only in San Francisco

The 24th episode of “Zoom In” is now available to view online. This episode, created by the youth media producers in our 2012 Summer Media Camp, focused on topics that make our city so unique and included contributions from music videos to graphic novels.

Commercials for the Dogpatch Cafe

The documentary youth split into 2 groups to practice their new camera skills at the Dogpatch Cafe. They made two commercials, one targeted for youth, and the second for adults… pretty sweet!!!

The BAYCAT Scavenger Hunt

This was the first time the documentary youth used the cameras!

This first part of this video was shot on the HDV and T2I DSLR camera, and they learned how sets and crew work during the exercise. The second part was shot on a flip camera – everyone was given a list of images and interviews to film in the BAYCAT space, and here’s what we came up with…

Dolly Exercise

Yesterday Laura’s Music Video Production class got an awesome intro to the dolly! 2 groups split up and took turns doing a dolly move to the Outkast song “Hey Ya” – check out the end result!!

Summer Media Camp Day 3: Music Video Exercise

On the third day of BAYCAT’s 2012 Summer Media Camp our youth media producers were asked to imagine, choreograph and perform a music video for Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” in under 45 minutes. They accomplished this amazing feat by forming smaller groups which created puppets, held up signs, acted, danced and covered themselves in written text for various portions of the video. Enjoy!

Summer Media Camp Day 2: Documentary Exercise

During the second day of our Summer Media Camp orientation our young media producers split into three groups to brainstorm ideas for a documentary. Here are some excerpts from their one-on-one interview sessions.
