BayKids recently screened seven films created by hospitalized children to an enthusiastic crowd at the BayKids Studio 2014 Film Premiere at the deYoung Museum. Alumni stars and event emcees Lara, Brittney, and Kenna won over the crowd with their charm as they introduced the BayKids filmmakers and their inspiring films. It was a heartwarming red carpet event, celebrating the power of creativity, storytelling, and courage.
The conversation on the way home was outstanding! We couldn’t stop talking about everything we learned and got to see.

On March 9th, we launched our mentoring program, BayKids in Motion, to help our young stars continue to learn, be inspired, and express themselves creatively beyond the hospital.
Held at LucasFilm, the exciting day featured story artist Rej Bourdage and animator Kevin O’Hara, two industry superstars who have worked on dozens of cool, animated movies with most of the big studios. They inspired over fifty enthusiastic BayKids participants, talking about story, storyboarding, and animation.
It was a memorable afternoon, thanks to talented and passionate filmmakers, Rej and Kevin.
