As anyone who has ever been to an outdoor concert knows, it can often get hot in the summer, or cool in the fall. In fact, most often all professional music and social events held outside often use tarps and pop up tents. As such, an up and coming actor by the name of Michael Stein started his own business with tarps plus now sponsoring feature film The Guitar Player a film that will benefit homeless.
Of course, his earlier experience in the acting, comedy and film industries help lead him to this current project. Although, with his experience related to event and nightclub management, Mr. Stein became quite well known over time. In fact, he was at one time considered to be the top promoter of young Hollywood talent.
The tarps company will be donating tarps for the film production and tarps drives. The tarp drives will be held at homeless shelters in colder climate cities across the country. The tarps are used to prevent cold and dampness. Most of the deaths that occur with the homeless are hypothermia during the winter season. The waterproof tarps enable people living on the streets to stay dry and warm.
Stein says, “The tarps are just a small but essential element for people living on the streets during the winter season. Food and education are also part of the bigger picture.”
So, why does Michael now wish to become a filmmaker? He first became interested and inspired to create and produce shorts and feature films after learning of the success a colleague experienced in relation to one of his feature films. In fact, he was so inspired that he left the promotion business to work full time as a production assistant. Of course, in doing so he was able to work with some of the best known names in comedy, film, music and theater.
As such, he often found himself working on projects ranging from advertisements and music videos to feature films and beyond. Still, he hung in there and became quite an assistant. After which, he them moved on to work independently with a number of actors, comedians, musicians, playwrights and others.
However, after a number of years, Mr. Stein decided to write, produce and direct a short film called Rituals and Resolutions. A film which is incredibly intellectually intense in regards to infidelity. Of course, when one only has thirty minutes for such a piece, one must often get straight to the point.
Still, the film went on to win several awards at various film festivals around the globe. After, which, HBO acquired the rights to distribute the film. Of course, Mr. Stein still directs, writes, acts and produces films. However, he also has interest in other avenues.
To this end, tarps plus now sponsoring feature film The Guitar Player a film that will benefit homeless is scheduled to begin production within the next few years. At which time, Michael may very well win a number of additional awards for this new dramatic tale. After which, he will then go on to write, direct, produce and star in a number of featured films and shorts.
