“The Last Mambo” explores the world of Salsa/Latin Jazz in the San Francisco Bay area from diverse perspectives of dancers, DJs and musicians. The film discusses how the dance aesthetic, musical presentation and cultural context have changed in the wake of Afrocuban music’s growing popularity and commercialization. “The Last Mambo”, punctuated with interviews, photographs and concert footage captures the spirit of Salsa/Latin Jazz, celebrates its rich cultural heritage and debates the nature of its future.
Rita Hargrave – Director - Producer. Paul Kealoha Blake - Videographer / Editor

The Documentary Filmmakers Course
These weekend workshops are packed with everything a filmmaker needs to know in order to make a documentary film and get their message to the masses. Topics include creating a great story, how to get funding (with guest speakers from top Californian grant organizations), production and post-production workflows and how to sell and distribute your film. Includes a workshop where you can pitch your project and get specialized advice. At the end of this session, we assure you that you will know exactly what to do next with your project.
Our 2 DAY SEMINAR provides you with an interactive, relaxed environment that encourages you to reach your goals. Through practical tips, hands on experience with filmmaking gear and video examples, you will feel empowered and confident that you can go out the next day and get started on your project. And don't think that after the seminar is over that you are on your own. Instructor Andrew Zinnes is available for quick, one off email questions and hour long consult session long after the event is over to refresh your memory, give advice, and help guide you through your process.
After all, what we want you to do is have an idea, grab a camera and make a doc. And if you aren't completely satisfied we will return your money. No strings attached.

THANK YOU BERKELEY & FRIENDS OF STUDENT FILMMAKER ZACK SCOTT!
THE 'INDIEGOGO' FILM FUND RAISING CAMPAIGN WAS A SUCCESS:
TOTAL GOAL AMOUNT OF $7,000. WAS SURPASSED! $7,390. WAS RAISED!!!!!
My name is Zachary T. Scott. I found my love for filmmaking before I entered high school at the East Bay Media Center in Berkeley, Califorina. Since that time, I have worked on and made several projects, one of which won a "Young Producer" award at the Berkeley Video Film Festival, titled "Jeff Higgins: Dead Blood." That short is avaliable to watch on youtube and it was shot on a Sony Handy Cam with just my allowance money! I am currently attending Sedona Film School in Sedona, AZ.
We Need To Talk is my school thesis film. At the core, this film it is about new love and what one man will go through to see his loved one again. The film will be full of stylized violence and action paying tribute to filmmakers such as Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. We Need To Talk will be my calling card after I graduate to get jobs in the film industry.
All money raised for this project will go to props, special effects, equipment, locations, travel expenses and lodging/meals for cast and crew. Any contributions will help tremendously!
Other Ways You Can Help
No money, no problem! Being able to contribute meals or locations as well as experience with special effects is very important! Thank you for your time and consideration!
INTERview with Edward Frenkel: as the Tragic and Possessed Lover
The true language of love?
It’s math, says Berkeley professor Edward Frenkel, whose steamy new film touches a nerve:
Overheard at the screening:
"If someone dropped a bomb on tonights screening, the top mathematicians in the U.S.
would be wiped out!"
"I had no idea it was still possible to stir up controversy in the Bay area with art involving
transgressive sex, and would never have thought that using research mathematics was the way to do it."
