My name is Sabian Castalia and I’m the Program Coordinator at BAYCAT. We're changing the face of the media industry by offering young women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ youth paid film and digital media training and empowering them to tell powerful, socially-conscious stories.
I'm reaching out to share information about our paid Summer 2021 virtual media classes, which we think could be a great opportunity for your youth!
BAYCAT Academy will be offering paid virtual two-week media classes in both graphic arts and filmmaking:
Graphic Arts: students will learn the fundamentals of design and use professional software to create static and motion graphics.
Filmmaking: students will learn the fundamentals of filmmaking and use professional software to create a short film.
The first two-week session, for High School students, runs from June 21 - July 1 (Graphic Arts offered 1-3 pm, Filmmaking offered 3:30-5:30 pm)
The second two-week session, for Middle School students, runs from July 12 - July 23 (Graphic Arts offered 1-3 pm, Filmmaking offered 3:30-5:30 pm)
Youth (ages 11-18) can sign up for one session and will receive a $500 stipend upon completion of the program.
Please share this with your partners and any youth that may be interested in applying.
