Bay Area Video Coalition’s public access television, SF Commons, is expanding to create a unique news system that will broadcast community-produced news, performances, exhibitions and neighborhood events from local art and cultural centers.  SOMArts, one of the N3 pilot sites, is now seeking applicants for resident video fellows to help launch this exciting new network!

Starting in early January, one or two fellows will participate in a series of training workshops that will prepare them to assist in producing and reporting live streaming news programming form SOMArts Cultural Center. Fellows will also serve as documentarians, recoding the program’s development in its early stages, and beyond.

Candidates will have beginning to intermediate skills in video production, news gathering and reporting, the arts or a related field.  Due to the community-based nature of the reporting, an existing connection to the local arts scene and/or the SoMa neighborhood is preferred.

In addition to a resume and two professional/academic references, applicants must provide 1-2 samples of news-related work and submit responses to six exploratory questions (see N3 Fellowship Application) to the Bay Area Video Coalition by November 8, 2010.
