I went to the Bakersfield sneak peek of the new Disney movie “McFarland USA” tonight – it was excellent, by the way – and promised myself I was just going to watch the movie like a regular person and not shoot any pictures. Yeah, well, you know.  When it’s what you do, it’s what you do. So here are some pictures from the sneak peak, and I am going to brag on our outstanding Bakersfield College journalism students in a few of them. And please visit the page on this blog featuring photos of the real McFarland team and coach Jim White from the 1987 championship season.

It didn't take long before Kevin Costner was mobbed by fans outside the Maya Cinemas for the Bakersfield sneak peak of "McFarland USA."

  1. Wow! I am a college student at Indiana State University, I am a communication major with a focus in journalism and I think this is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I was not sure what photo journalism was or how it worked. I really like the pictures, and seeing other college students interviewing these important people.
