Video making is a storytelling medium that has a dramatic ability to connect artists and audiences. A well-made video can create almost supernatural levels of understanding and engagement. Kallen Media is proud to work with companies who see video as a powerful force for change; that’s why we work with the bay area video coalition. (BAVC) So today, we want to bring you our seventh company spotlight on the bay area video coalition.
The BAVC was founded in 1976 to create a social hub and resource network for media makers. The coalition has helped thousands of creators and archived incredible amounts of filmography. In this blog, we will break down some of the team’s work, how you can help, and a little bit about our work with the BAVC. After this blog, you will know all about the impressive work happening around media production in the bay area! So let’s get started by talking about what the BAVC does every day.
Who is The Bay Area Video Coalition
One of the organization’s main focuses is to empower people to tell their own unique stories through film. the BAVC uses art, education, and technology to tell truly diverse stories. This help can come in many forms; the BAVC offers classes to teach people about film and film production. But they don’t stop with education. The coalition also supports and funds filmmakers! By educating and producing videos, the bay area video coalition creates a safe environment where creativity and personal growth can thrive. And the BAVC also has programs for kids. the next generation of filmmakers are encouraged to grow their skills early with the coalitions youth classes. But the coalition isn’t just making new films; they are also preserving old ones.
Besides teaching, this group is preserving old films on outdated playback mediums. The BAVC is actively digitizing old movies and maintaining our historical records. To date, the organization has rescued over 7000 hours of footage from the sands of time. Even if we kept all our old videos in ideal storage facilities, the film naturally breaks down over time. Because of this decay, moving films into the digital medium now is more important than ever. Without programs like the BAVC and other preservation teams, we could lose an incredible amount of important historical footage. By preserving old films, training, and empowering new filmmakers, the BAVC ensures the rich history of videography lives on.
