Kassaundra RamirezA star is born…

Paparazzi were everywhere. Traffic was stopped and dozens of people lined the streets. Sirens wailed, photographers jostled for position and fans cheered as a big, black limo pulled up. The crowd rushed the car door and security was forced to clear a path. Cheers echoed off the towering buildings.

Downtown San Francisco got a rare look at one of today’s hottest pop singers, Kassaundra Ramirez. Rushed from the limo through the screaming throngs to the an exclusive Q+A and autograph session with hundreds of her biggest fans, Ramirez proved that she’s on the fast-track to the top of the entertainment world. Her delicate charm coupled with undeniable stage-presence has wowed audiences across the nation and her chart-topping single “Butterfly Don’t Fly Away” is making people happy from coast to coast.


We are always proud of the work our students and alumni put out. From zombie films to organic farming shorts and everything in between, SFSDF has put out hundreds films and videos that we are happy to say “Darn right, we made that!” But recently, our few of our alums had the opportunity to be part of something really special.

San Francisco’s Clean White Lines (previously) was asked to help make a little girl’s dream come true by contributing a music video to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and their recent SF production.

Kassaundra Ramirez“The manager of band we did another video for – Joe Barham – works for a local radio station (107.7 The Bone) and he does a lot of work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He had this project coming up and asked if we would be interested in helping. We were super-excited for the opportunity and jumped on board immediately,” said Clean White Line’s Staci DeGagne.

There’s a great article in the SF Gate and lots of behind-the-scenes photos, too.And be sure to check out this video of Kassaundra Ramirez arrival at the hotel in the limo, the crazy crowds and the cutest smile of the happiest little girl you’ve ever seen.
