Mission

Pictoclik’s mission is to unite filmmakers across the nation and “Connect one filmnation!” We want to keep our own creative resources confident in the idea that there is a place for a new supportive community in filmmaking. We would also like to play a role in bridging the gap between budding filmmakers and established industry professionals by providing a distribution outlet through our annual short film festival. This in turn will eventually bring more opportunities to unite artists to work with one another and keep the community productive and accessible.

This is the key moment when she decided to move to San Francisco to pursue a MA in New Media at the Academy of Art. Shortly after graduation she began working as a visual designer at Fluid Inc.

Sandra Lopez

Board Member

Sandra Lopez is a Bay Area native born in San Francisco. She grew up with an interest in the arts, graduating in 2009 from California College of the Arts in San Francisco with an architecture degree. Open to explore other forms of art, her focus shifted to filmmaking after her boyfriend asked her to co-produce his short film debut, “La Vida Loca.” The film won the top honorary awards, Best of Festival and People’s Choice, at the school’s 2012 Aspiring Minds Film Festival and was subsequently selected to screen at the 2012 San Francisco Latino Film Festival. The entire experience piqued her interest and led her to return to school to study film at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA.

She studied everything from film analysis to film production and worked on multiple student films, meeting and working with fellow student filmmakers along the way that became her “film family.” Together, they produced award winning short films and the rewarding experience of creating cinematic art that moves an audience convinced them that this is what they wanted to do for the rest of their lives.

Sandra is a full time film editor and videographer for audio/video studio DeNoise in Emeryville, CA. She dreams of starting a major independent film studio in the Bay Area someday to fund and produce films that rival those out of Hollywood with help from the film family she met in school.
