Kudos: ‘Digivangelist’ encourages youth art

Christopher Coppola (nephew of Francis Ford, brother of Nicolas Cage), who calls himself a “digivangelist,” is bringing a free digital media festival to the Bay Area from Sunday through Aug. 17. The project, called Project Accessible Hollywood, will put digital video cameras in the hands of would-be filmmakers, especially young people.

PAH-Fest’s goal is to use the power of the digital media revolution and the Internet to connect people from all walks of life. PAH-Fest offers participants the ability to discover the “artist within us all.”

Visit www.pahnation.org or just show up at the Exploratorium, 3601 Lyon St., San Francisco, on Aug. 10 between noon and 4 p.m., where the “Circus Vision Challenge” will take place. Coppola will welcome kids ages 14 and under (accompanied by a parent or chaperone), who will be given a quick orientation, and provided with a video-enabled phone or camera. Then they will embark on a visual treasure hunt to capture and interpret a list of visual ingredients. The participant whose piece is judged most effective will win $100.
