“You know your work, so let’s get together and translate that into a video clip, which you can use on your website or on a social media platform to represent yourself and your artwork.”
At this BizArts, local filmmaker Diane Mackenzie will teach a hands-on video workshop. She will share with those attending a few basic and powerful tools that will assist in the telling of an artist’s story and in the promotion of their work.

Diane Mackenzie has been passionately involved in film since she was 9 months old and first wandered onto her father’s set. Inspired by the oil spill of 1969, she completed her first film at age 12, “America The Beautiful,” about ecology in California. After having studied and taught Anthropology and also being in pre-med studies, she returned to her first love, film. Diane produced and directed local programming for Public Access. She went on to be Production & Government Access Coordinator for South SB County. In search of creative freedom, she went on to study Film Production and Critical Studies at USC and UCSB. She taught Video and Film Equipment Use and all phases of production at UCSB, and is currently working in archives conservation in the Film and Media Studies at UCSB. She has worked with theater and dance groups, including Lit Moon and Stage Left, showing the development of their creative processes in visual form.
