BayKids Filmmakers and their Films Celebrated at LucasFilm!

The BayKids 13th annual red carpet Premiere featured young filmmakers Danica, Tyler, Victoria, Isaiah, Alex and Aidan and their inspirational films. The event was made extra special by the passionate contributions of the BayKids family. Our film industry colleagues from Lucasfilm, Pixar and Dolby presented awards and Richard Gould from Skywalker Sound gave a fascinating talk on sound production. Hooman Khalili from Alice @97.3 emceeed the event with heart-felt enthusiasm. Dolby and Pixar volunteers ensured that everything ran smoothly. The stars and their moms and siblings got pampered by Maria Lee Hair and Make Up, Phillipa Shendoa, and friends. The audience and filmmakers gathered afterwards at a lovely reception at Sessions. A truly memorable event.

Pixar Hosts Pre-screening of The Good Dinosaur to Benefit BayKids

It was a magical evening at Pixar Animation Studios – great food and wine, a tour of Pixar,and an advance viewing of the spectacularly beautiful The Good Dinosaur. After the screening, the audience was treated to an inside look at the making of the film in a Q&A with some of the filmmakers.

Thanks to all the superheroes who helped make it a success–Filmmakers Rej Bourdages and Kevin O’Hara, youth filmmaker Mailyna, our MC Hooman Khalili, and most especially, Pixar Studios.

Dolby Cares A LOT!

It was an honor for BayKids to have 40 dynamic Dolby employees, led by Chief Marketing Officer Bob Borchers, roll up their sleeves to work on some of our projects – design, marketing, social media, editing, strategy, and many others. Big thanks to all the superheroes who made this fun and valuable day happen: Film Advisor Greg Ammen, Joan Scott, Joy Nestor, Jo-Ann Dornenburg and the whole Dolby crew of volunteers. What a talented and dedicated group.
