If you've gone to events at the Caspar Community Center or Fort Bragg's Town Hall or any number of other gathering places, you've probably seen Jane Vartanian with her video camera.MCCET is a repository of valuable visual history of the North Coast and its people.Jane and others have videotaped our meetings, our events, and our lives.
Jane has been taping events and making programs for MCCET at a steady clip for over 10 years.Jane began taking a Regional Occupational Program (ROP) video class around 1990 because she wanted to do something after retiring from 37 years of teaching science in the Bay Area.She always had an interest in light, so photography and video seemed like a natural extension of that interest.Jane learned enough in the ROP class to be hired by Channel 8 and worked with Ed Kowas on the news for a couple of years.
At the same time, Jane began taping community events.In 1992 she met another MCCET volunteer, Rita Lorenz, while they were both videotaping the same event.For several years, they both taped every public and private function they could possibly fit into their schedules, including meetings, dedications, rodeos, craft and art shows-making a video record of life on the coast.Jane figures that since 1992 she has probably taped over 300 community events, most of them without pay.Since January of this year alone, she has worked on at least 22 projects and spent over 200 hours shooting and editing.She has master tapes of everything she has made, and people often contact her to get copies of the tapes that include them or their families.Last year Jane began work on the MCCET Memories Series, reviewing and editing tapes into one-hour programs of different events for each year, beginning with 1983.This work takes hours and hours and she is now up to 1995.MCCET is showing these tapes twice a week at various times, so check the schedule.It is hard to imagine, but Jane, who is 78 years old, finds the time and energy to be involved in other interests as well.She repairs books for the Fort Bragg Library and the Fort Bragg School District; she produces her church bulletin and serves on the board of the Westport-Ten Mile Cemetery District; she is active in Delta Kappa Gamma, a world-wide society of women educators formed to help other women educators; and she is a participating member of the Gem and Mineral Society.
