Share Article

Filmmaker will be giving out one thousand tarps at the Los Angeles Mission a day before Thanksgiving.

Giving out tarps to homeless may be the ticket for one filmmaker to getting his film made. Actor and film maker Michael Stein has written a screenplay about a homeless street performer who gets a second chance in life but struggles with his painful past. Like most film makers, he is trying to get a film company to produce his film. In order to get his quest out there he has chosen to organize a series of tarp drives is several major cities around the country.

The company supplying the tarps is Tarps Plus. The company was founded by the Stein in 1999. Stein created the company so he could make enough money to pay for his independent film ventures. Since then the tarp company has become the largest tarp supplier in the US.

Stein stated, “The tarps are a simple gesture and an essential tool during the winter months for people living on the streets. Giving someone a tarp to stay dry and warm is the least I could do.”

Stein’s whole mission is to get a film company to produce the film and offer a nationwide tarp drive to promote the film with all the expenses being paid by Tarps Plus. On top of offering a film company nationwide promotion for the film Stein also intends to donate half of his earning of the film to homeless charities.

Tarps enable people living on the street to stay dry and warm during the cold winter months. Many people living on the streets suffer from hypothermia during the winter months. In many cases simple waterproof plastic tarps can save lives.
