BAVC inspires social change by empowering media makers to develop and share diverse stories through art, education and technology. BAVC has been an advocate for artists and media makers for almost 40 years, supplying the tools, resources, and support they need to tell their stories.
This free online resource from the Bay Area Video Coalition will give you direction in organizing, preserving, seeing and appreciating your audiovisual collection. From the unruly media room of your archive to the small box of tapes sitting in your home collecting dust, AV Compass will provide the basic tools you need to move forward in saving your films, tapes, discs and files for the long-term. http://avcompass.bavc.org/

BAVC Productions produces high-quality videos and multimedia content to meet the needs of local and national businesses and nonprofit organizations. For 38 years, BAVC has served as a community hub and resource for media makers in the Bay Area and across the country. We provide clients with an experience that foregrounds their needs and their content, while drawing from our decades-long fluency in visually-driven new media storytelling.
BAVC Productions projects range in scope and style, and our involvement varies with each project: from providing tech support for established media professionals, to sharing storytelling feedback and guidance for organizations new to filmmaking workflows. Past projects include motion graphic data visualization videos, in-depth documentary profiles, Kickstarter videos, and event videography.
