Meet Kevin!

IDTV 2014

Meet Kevin Cabuhat, born in San Diego and raised in Malaysia. Kevin’s parents work for the American Embassy which explains a bit of his international flavor, but don’t ask him if they’re spies-he’ll never tell.

Kevin’s himself has been living in San Francisco for the last 3 years and attending classes at City College for the last 2 years. His love of food is what got him in involved in TV initially and he now he sees himself shooting and editing. “Indian, specifically vegetarian, is my favorite", he says. When he’s not eating out, he’s cooking at home.

This is Kevin’s last semester at City College having been accepted into San Francisco State University – nice work! Once at SF State he plans to check out the film department in the hopes of sparking his creative side in the shooting process. He credits CCSF teacher Michelle Sieglitz for getting him on the right…

Meet Matias!

IDTV 2014

Meet Matias Godinez, a bilingual, broadcasting dynamo! In a one-year span this San Franciscan native worked with high school, college and professional football teams in a myriad of roles. First he was the color commentator for De LaSalle football (a nationally recognized high school juggernaut), then he did sideline reporting for UC Davis football and, to boot, he’s also a color commentator/half-time analyst/engineer (that’s a lot of slashes!) for the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers has been his current gig of 3 years for Spanish radio…¡Ay Caramba!

Matias knows he’s in a good place for a couple of reasons: professional football is growing in the spanish-speaking segment of the US and the world with the 49ers a much better team now than even a couple of years ago. Matias feels pretty good about his current and future prospects, “People want to listen to the games in Spanish and can now do so online throughout the world."

When he’s…

Meet Gleidson!

IDTV 2014

4 1/2 years ago, Gleidson Martins came all the way from Brazil to San Francisco so he could learn English. Having succeeded in his endeavor, I asked him if he’ll remember SF as a positive place when he returns to Brazil. To this he simply said, “Um, I’m staying."

This is Gleidson’s second semester at City College where he arrived  from a reporting and journalism background.He wanted to update his skill set by figuring out how television production worked. “I’m trying to get back to the news environment" he says. He’s currently focusing on producing of stories that truly matter to their audience.

Exposure to how all the parts behind the scenes work together has been the most gratifying part of Gleidson’s City College tenure where he sees taking a writing class next semester as a way for to compliment his newfound love of production.

When he’s not at school you…

Meet Timothy!

I remember Timothy was already in IDTV in 2008 or 2009, at that time I hadn’t started learning video production yet. Also when I think of Tim, I’ll think of someone I wanna be with…

IDTV 2014


This guy likes TV so much he even has one tattooed on his leg (that’s commitment!).

With each question it becomes more and more obvious this guy’s an open book, a very interesting open book. Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Timothy’s called San Francisco home for the last 16 years. He’s happily married, loves school and has been calling CCSF his 2nd home since ’98.

He also has a BA from San Francisco State, has studied liberal arts at CCSF and even has a certificate in French from CCSF which he says comes in handy when in France – go figure. He also studied language & culture for a year at school in Budapest, Hungary. After awhile you get the feeling that this guy really likes school. “I used to want to be a teacher", he says but that was then this is now.

Now, he wants to keep doing what…

Meet Gregory!

Check out the latest IDTV team members’ profile!

IDTV 2014


Gregory Gazzano not only knows video production, he also knows sushi. Besides being a graduate of the BECA Program at San Francisco State University, he has been a sushi chef over for the past seven years. “You don’t see many Americans working as a sushi chef,” he explains. His experiences have exposed him to a number of different ethnicities and taught him more about Japanese culture than he would have dreamed of knowing otherwise. Though Gregory enjoys his profession, his passion lies elsewhere and he’s pursuing his true aspirations in film and video production.

When Gregory graduated from SF State four years ago, he found himself living in Sonora, CA for the following two and a half years. Living in such a small community limited his opportunity to exercise his newly acquired video production skills. A man in town producing wedding videos offered him a job. “The guy wanted to…

Working On An Interview Project – My First One Ever In Macau

Even though I have been facing a lot of difficulties and obstructions of doing media production here in Macau, I still find some other ways to pursue my dream while I’m working full time on another job. Recently my cousin invited me to help shooting an interview with the manger of a local paper factory, which is also part of the project of his management class. Obviously I’ve been doing something like that many many times, so I said no problem. So we went to the paper factory last Friday morning, after setting up the equipment, then we were about to shoot the interview. There were two interviewers, and I worked as a director and cameraman. Everything was wrapped up around 12pm. After the shooting, I started doing the post production, and there was a lot of work, not just editing, but also fixing the audio problems, doing color corrections, creating motion graphics openers, etc. And I just finished everything this morning.


Now please take a look on some of the behind the scenes pictures and also the screen captures of the post production process for this project here, by the way the entire interview will be available on my YT channel sometime next week, so stay tuned.


Meet Jason!

Jason Grohman – “I Still Believe In You".

IDTV 2014


Jason Grohman is definitely a sports guy. He’s a snowboarder who also plays hockey year round for local the hockey team the Chieftains. This season he’s unfortunately out due to a concussion suffered during a game last season but he’s eager to get back to the game next season. Not only does Jason play sports, he is eager to shoot sporting events and concerts as a professional cameraman one day. Though he knows he still has a way to go this doesn’t stop him from being proactive. “When I go to the games, I talk to the camera guys, to see where to start. “ From this interaction he’s received lots of helpful advice to get to where he wants to be.

In this same vein, Jason has also taken the initiative to further his skills by taking classes at City College of San Francisco over the past six years…

Meet Martin!

IDTV 2014


Martin Reade moved to the US from Dublin, Ireland 17 years ago, “Or at least I tink!” (He has quite the accent). “There was no opportunity in Ireland, so in the face of that I got myself a green card and took the liberty to come to the USA, land of the free and home of the brave!”

 Until recently, Martin has been “Serving drunks drinks,” and from that experience he has predominantly one thing to say: “I hate bartending.” While he admits that at a younger age it would have been a more enjoyable experience, over the years of doing it the craft has really taken it’s toll. He has now come to City College of San Francisco in hopes of further expanding his skills in the broadcasting and film industry, his particular strength being editing. “I think it’s (CCSF) an amazing resource for lower income people to have…
