Bruce Burtch Photography

The Community Media Center of Marin presents "Bruce Burtch Photography," a virtual photo gallery on exhibit through June 30.

"Over the past nearly 50 years, a high-quality Canon camera was never far from my side," says Burtch, who has been called the "Father of Cause Marketing" and currently serves as executive director/producer, pro bono, of Social Impact Productions, a nonprofit organization focused on producing educational and socially impactful communications.

"Whether splattered with sand from climbing a dune in Death Valley, dust-covered from a dry Native American pow wow, or the tragedy of dropping my best camera into the ocean (a total loss), this wonderful hobby has allowed me to find miraculous beauty in far-off places and my own backyard.  The following is but a sample of what my eyes have witnessed and my camera has captured."

Congratulations, Pirates!

The Sir Francis Drake High School Class of 2020 isn't letting the COVID-19 pandemic ruin their graduation plans. Seniors will receive their diplomas in an innovative "Drive Through" ceremony at the school on Friday, June 12 from 3:00-6:00 PM

Respecting social distancing protocol, Principal Liz Seabury, with Assistant Principals Chad Stewart and Nate Severin, will pass out diplomas to graduates, who will demonstrate their Drake Pride as they step out of their cars dressed in green caps & gowns.

Drake's ComAcad students will crew the production under the supervision of instructors John MacLeod (Director at XRLibraries and Marinovation Learning Center) and Omid Shamsapour (Director of Education & Production at the Community Media Center of Marin). The ComAcad team will then be assigned a Summer project to edit the live footage and create a final graduation piece later in the year. Stay tuned!

Calling all Marin high school students!!

Register your team to participate in the first ever MARIN SCHOOL OF THE ARTS FILM CHALLENGE!

The MSA Film Challenge is based on Cinemasports, the global phenomenon during which teams have 10 hours to complete a movie with a list of ingredients. Finished movies screen the 11th hour, that very night. For Example, can different teams complete a short movie during daylight hours that includes an English teacher, a tattoo, and a lost lover?

The MSA Film Challenge will begin at 9am at the Novato High School Performing Arts Building, where teams will receive the list of ingredients for their films. The teams then set off to write a script, shoot, and edit their film in time for the 7pm screening time.
Registration is free and teams may be comprised of as many students as they desire. Individuals may also register and be assigned to a team the day of the event.
