Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2011
An independent filmmaker and a tarp company both have something in common; they want to cover the homeless tarps to keep them dry and warm for winter. Writer, director, actor Michael Stein has written a film about a homeless street performer who gets a second chance in life but struggles with his painful past. Stein approach in searching for funding of the film is very unique.
The goal with the tarp drives is to help the people living on the streets during the cold winter months and at the same time get attention from Hollywood producers to help make the film.
Stein stated, “The tarps are just a small but essential tool for people living on the streets. It enables them to stay dry and warm.”
Think about all the movies you have watched that tore at your heart. You may have felt moved to make a difference for someone you were reminded of by watching a movie. The feature film "The Guitar Player" is going to be a movie like that and much more. The greatest part is you can lend a helping hand for the production that is going to benefit thousands of homeless people.
Stein’s script is about a fictitious character named Robert (the killer) Shiller. While he ends up winning the lottery in the end, the life he leads up to that point is heart breaking and too real to many people out on the streets right now. He suffers through the harshest realities of being homeless and is eventually able to make enough money playing his music to get a room at night in a rundown hotel.
The filmmaker Michael Stein has also agreed to donate half of the profits he would make from the movie to charities for the homeless.
Stein and the tarp supplier Tarps Plus will be planning a tarp drive in Los Angeles in November. Over one thousand plastic poly tarps will be given out to people living on the streets.
