    California College of the Arts is proud to present a one-day event dedicated to the world of video-making practices and digital visual culture.


    Join us for a series of workshops, panels, screenings and discussions related to the emerging trends and techniques from the DIY video scene.





    In 2008, several hundred DIY video creators, curators, digital culture scholars, and Internet industry leaders gathered at the University of Southern California for a summit on the future of video creation and communication. It was the first event of its kind, at a pivotal moment in the evolution of media, convening the wide-ranging communities that were just starting to come together around grassroots, everyday and amateur video creation. After a successful second summit hosted by the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles in October 2010, the event makes its 2011 Bay Area debut at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco with the latest in amateur online video featuring an extensive line-up of funny, passionate, political and creative DIY videos culled from diverse genres and highlighting recent trends and techniques emerging from the DIY scene. Additionally, the event features panels and workshops related to video making practices, all open and free to the public (registration required). 

    The theme of the 2011 show is “collective action,” as videomakers reach out to others, creating active communities in dialogue. The program includes examples from the most prominent forms of amateur video production, including lip dubs, in which students craft single-shot music video portraits of their schools; brilliant auto-tune spoofs that transform quotidian and ridiculous moments captured on tape into sublime musical events; video remixes that are by turns overtly political and hilarious; videoblogs documenting everyday life and collective action around the world; and fan vids, in which fans reimagine their icons through editing, sound design and remix. Curated collectively with input from Matteo Bittanti, Francesca Coppa, Sasha Costanza-Chock, Ryanne Hodson, Jonathan McIntosh, Tim Park and Mike Wesch, who each made selections from different DIY genres, the final program includes dozens of examples in a fast-paced overview.

    Join us after the conference for food, drinks and a music tour-de-force by DJ Kid Kameleon  

    Kid Kameleon is DJ, promoter, writer, blogger, historian, archivist, and fan of electronic music. He’s been that way for 15 years. He’s from North Carolina, but ended up in New York in the late ’90s and early ’00s. He moved to the Bay Area in 2004, and currently lives in San Francisco. His performances are wild, eclectic, flamboyant, humorous, energetic and passionate, and he is a true believer in the DJ’s unique ability to be a curator and narrator. A champion of outsider music styles and eclectic mixing techniques rooted in a core of hip-hop, jungle, and dub, these days the Kid’s sets take in ever-widening genres from breakcore to b-more, dubstep to dancehall, club, pop, juke and even rock. A prolific mixer, writer and journalist, he keeps one ear tuned to the new and cutting edge and the other to the glories of the past. He spins heads and feet the physical and digital world over.


    The 2011 DIY Video conference, the screening, the workshops and the reception are 

    FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC (limited seating, seats will be assigned on a first come, first served basis).
