Jes Rowe

Factory Instructor + SF Commons Equipment Coordinator

Jes Rowe embarked on her journey with BAVC Media in January 2020 as the Next Gen Factory Instructor, and soon after as a member of the SF commons team. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, and attended college for both audio production and engineering.  Jes later combined that knowledge with her passion for film, and merging these mediums really brought a whole new life to creative expression. She has now been working as a freelance filmmaker for almost ten years. Jes is driven by the desire to connect to the world through media, uplift underrepresented voices, and make moves for social change. Becoming an educator has reminded her of why she got into filmmaking in the first place, and believes it is crucial to have access to the arts at a young age.
