Zero Breast Cancer is a Marin-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping to determine the causes of breast cancer through community participation in the research process. They are just down the street from us and we have been a proud supporter of them for many years. They hold an annual fundraising event, Honor Thy Healer, to honor healers in the community.
We’d like to share a part of the video that we created for the event, and if you have the time please check in with them at www.zerobreastcancer.org to learn more about this very important organization.
The Big Picture Film & Video Arts is honored to have created two $3,000 video production scholarships through the San Francisco chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to be awarded to one outstanding undergraduate student and one outstanding graduate student.
These scholarships have been created in the names of Jerry Jensen and Steve Davies. Two colleagues of George Lang, with whom he worked at KGO-TV with for many years.
George says, “Jerry was a mentor to me from the time I was 20 years old and helped me with my career throughout his life. Steve Davis and I worked closely together through the tumultuous 80s and all the major news stories that Steve was assigned to. There was no better journalist and one of few who fought for principles.”
Congratulations to George Lang and Chris Roy of The Big Picture! The Northern California Area EMMY® Award Nominations were announced today and they were each nominated for their work on The Jay Maisel piece.
Here is the full list of nominees:
Last night The Big Picture had the opportunity to shoot some video of the opening night of Hugh Jackman’s one band show at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco, put on by SHN – San Francisco’s premier theatrical entertainment event company . You may not know this, but behind those devilish good looks there is a Tony award winning theatre actor who has comedic timing, powerful vocal chords, and some slick dance moves.
Tonight he takes the stage at The Curran theatre backed by an 18 piece orchestra where he will perform his favorite Broadway and Musical numbers.
Tune in now to participate in a live Q&A with Hugh on facebook! To attend, visit http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=117382308343932
