We have a busy show this Wednesday! Joining us are the winners of the High School animated PSA contest to tell us about their experience and to collect their awards for 1st and 2nd place. Next, we’ll talk to Matías Bombal from “Matías Bombal’s Hollywood”, to talk about his movie reviews as well as his recently released documentary, “The Sacramento Picture”. Lastly, the Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region will be talking to us about their event this Sunday, The Jewish Heritage Festival at Raley Field.


Late last year Access Sacramento announced to Sacramento region high schools an animated public service announcement contest that connected high school animators with local nonprofit organizations.

Months later, we have announced the official three winners and two of them will be on LiveWire! First place winner Max Esipciuc and his project with WEAVE and second place winner Jamie Campos and his project, “Fight the Bite”, will both be coming in to talk about the contest and their process in making the videos.

“Matías Bombal’s Hollywood” presents movie reviews of new films currently playing or coming soon at a theater near you.

Noted California showman, broadcaster and former movie palace manager, Matías Bombal, is known for his love of cinema from its beginning to the arrival of wide-screen films. This gives him a most interesting perspective on reviewing the current releases.

Matías has also recently released the documentary film “The Sacramento Picture”, a collection of rare movies of Sacramento from 1910-1974 and selections from the KCRA news film collection between 1957-1960. In the care of Center for Sacramento History, it has been digitized through the California Audiovisual Preservation Project.
