San Francisco Remembers The Blunder Years

Posted on August 10, 2011

The Blunder Years is an evening of live performance and video where Bay Area filmmakers, writers, musicians, and actors show/perform pieces influenced by the television and movies of their teenage years. The event is scheduled for the evening of August 12 at Z-Space in San Francisco. All donations will go towards BAVC's The Factory — an advanced video production collective for motivated teenagers in the Oakland Bay Area.

Cinema Speakeasy and Friends with Benefits invites you to participate in The Blunder Years — an evening inspired by the pop-culture forces of our youth, to celebrate and benefit today's youth. This is a live variety showcase in which each participant pays homage to the iconic movie or TV show of their teen years in the form of a reading, a live sketch performance, a musical interpretation, a comedy routine, or a short-film screening, to name just a few examples. The night's performances will be punctuated by a cocktail hour, a house-band, and a DJ.

The event organizers are asking for all the best actors, writers, artists, comedians, and filmmakers from the Bay Area to lend their creative talents to this fun-filled charitable event. All proceeds will be donated to BAVC's The Factory — a non-profit year round production collective for motivated teenagers in the Oakland Bay Area. Led by award-winning filmmaker Jason Jakaitis, Factory produced videos have screened at more than 50 festivals internationally, garnered numerous awards, and aired on television shows in San Francisco and New York.

And be sure to check out The Blunder Years this Friday night, August 12, at Z-Space in San Francisco!
