Our friends at Beyond Pix are having a swap meet this weekend! Read on for more information directly from them:
The Swap Meet is this Saturday, September 15th, and we hope anyone and everyone will come and support the event. It’s our way of promoting and supporting our local film, video and online media community.
If you have something to sell, it’s a great way to find a buyer and for your gear to get a new life or upcycled by someone else. If you’re just starting out or looking to expand your repertoire, it’ll be an awesome place to find a good deal. Above all, a Swap Meet is one of the original social networking ideas where you can meet new people, see old friends and have a good time. It’ll be a Saturday morning well worth the effort.
We’re hosting this as an industry oriented flea market, but you happen to have other stuff that you want to get rid of, just bring other items along too. You know someone will buy that tennis racket, a bike or tools you’ve outgrown. Bring them all.
We hope this serves as catalyst for the community to get together in person more often and perhaps, it’ll develop as an event we repeat every six months. Nothing beats the power of word of mouth and you passing along the information so please forward this to anyone you can think of. A hot dog cart will be there for your convenience should you need a snack.
What: The San Francisco/Bay Area Swap Meet
When: Saturday, September 15, 9 am to 2 pm
Where: Beyond Pix Studios @Bayshore, 2178 Palou (between Industrial St. & Dorman Ave)
Who: All film, video & online media professionals & students welcome
Phone: Battery St. Office – 415.434.1027 Palou Studio – 415.282.5300
If you’re a seller, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for a table. Thanks everyone and we’ll see you there and the weather forecast is for a beautiful Saturday morning, just like we ordered!
Thanks in advance for your support and the proceeds for the sellers fees will go to the Blind Babies Foundation.
San Francisco is a leader in being “green” in every way. From Green technology companies to seeking out organic foods to recycling and waste management, you
can count on San Franciscans to always be looking forward. It’s still impressive, however, that in San Francisco over 80% of waste is recycled, reused, restored, and does not make it to the landfill. That is an impressive feat that involves public policy, public participation and successful planning and logistics in waste management.
We are proud to present to you this program we created, which aired on CBS and ABC on Sunday, showing exactly what goes in to all the recycling in San Francisco, the Greenest city in America.
Did you know that 80% of solid waste in San Francisco is being diverted from landfills? 80% of San Francisco’s waste is being recycled, repurposed, and composted. It’s no wonder that San francisco has built a reputation as the Greenest City in America.
The Big Picture is proud to have put together this program on Recycling in San Francisco that will be publicly broadcast at the following times… on Earth Day, no less! Tune in:
Sunday 9:30am – 10:00am CBS KPIX channel 5
Sunday 3:00pm – 3:30pm ABC 7
With the help of Scott McGrew, George was able to get Joe Muscat, Ernst & Young’s Partner& Strategic Growth Markets Leader-West, featured on this Sunday’s episode of Press: Here. We are so excited to see Joe on television and hope you will all nominate your favorite entrepreneurial CEO for this year’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year program!
Watch Joe’s episode this Sunday, January 29th at 9 am on NBC-11!

After watching the success of such figures as Oprah, Dr.Phil, Maury and Ricki Lake, who hasn’t dreamed of hosting their own talk show? Luckily for George Lang this dream became a reality when he got the chance to host a talk show of his own.
Since nobody had anything to do during the day, like work or go to school, his early afternoon show was an obvious hit. On a set they built themselves walked the likes of prominent community figures like the head of the library and the “how to keep your family safe” police officer you can see pictured below. Everyday George got to wear a flashy new tie sponsored by Ernst Ties, who of course got full credit. To lure in viewers the show had an amazing and exciting daily contest, whose terms we fail to remember. We couldn’t, however, forget what the grand prize was. New potholders! A prize indicated beneath the Almanac sign on the set, but due to having no mail budget if you wanted them you had to come get them yourself. Memories like these help to reinstill the life old lesson of never forgetting where you came from.
Yesterday was the first live shot from McCoy Station at Mammoth Mountain Ski resort. We just finished installation of a new fiber optic link that allows the Mammoth satellite team to provide live shots from the midway point of the mountain.
It turned out great – look at the mountain and the sky! This weather girl is a hoot as well.
Check out the TV spot we produced for our Mammoth Mountain If you didn’t know already, you can now fly non-stop from the Bay Area to Mammoth Mountain!!! Let’s hit the slopes!!!
Did you know you can now take a one hour direct flight from the Bay Area to Mammoth mountain? If you didn’t, well now you do. Here are some photos of the live shot we did for NBC 11 from SFO with our friends from Mammoth to announce the flights.
No more Tahoe traffic if you want to get in some great skiing…
George Lang, our founder, President and resident DP is no stranger to adventure and perilous camera work. He has taken footage underwater with sharks, dangling from a helicopter, in the line of fire in Rwanda – you could definitely throw around some adjectives here such as fearless, audacious, daring and also just plain nuts.
But lo and behold, we send him out to the Ice Rink in Union Square, and he comes back like this!
Luckily we know that George can get the job done blindfolded and with his arms tied behind his back, so we aren’t too worried.
Take a look at the final piece that we did for Mammoth Mountain for the grand opening of the holiday Ice Rink at Union Square – featuring Woolly the Mammoth. See if you can spot George skating by.
We’ve known how great Dick Bright is for a very long time. We have some great images of him and his band performing at various corporate events for us over the years. Since he lives nearby and has been a part of The Big Picture for so long, we’d like to claim dibs on him, but since he does events like the Black & White ball in San Francisco, we are occasionally reminded of his huge success and that we do in fact share him with the world.
And that’s really no joke. Dick Bright performed “God Bless America” to a singing crowd on his sexy white violin at AT&T park last Wednesday for the Giant’s game 4 of the NLCS for the thousands of fans that were there and for the world to see on broadcast. And now the web. Click below to see his performance.
