A conversation with Joe Barbagallo: 

Joe Barbagallo is an independent producer, actor, and entrepreneur who made
his bones producing and staring in popular web series before graduating to
feature films.
Producing the sci-fi/Action web series Red Rash (Distributed by Machinima) has
given Joe expertise in overseeing prop firearms, visual effects and stunt and fight
choreography. Joe fills in his time between films as a producer of branded content.
Previous and current clients include YouTube, Rolling Stone, SpikeTV, and TNA
Wrestling. His comfort in the online/social ecosystem has garnered over 25k
followers and a platform to promote all of his endeavors to a carefully curated
audience. He used this following to crowd source the six-figure budget for his feature
film.
Before forming his production company, Joe was a Army veteran turned successful
entrepreneur in the health and fitness industry. Today, he has secured funding from
private and social platforms. He has had a GI Joe Fan Film that went viral and
gardened the attention of now partner Larry Hama (creator of G.I. Joe). He carried
these skills over to his first feature film, Ghost Source Zero, which he produced with
Larry coming out this Fall. He has distributed 2 feature films domestically and
internationally.

First draft reading: Of the Manners and Extraordinary Qualities

First draft reading: Of the Manners and Extraordinary Qualities

Join TAC member, Keith Paul Medelis, for the first draft reading of selections from a historical text from 1653 by Dutch settler Adrian van der Donck. Forgotten through the lens of the winning side getting to write history, archane Dutch, and waning interest in the native inhabitants of the land we now call Manhattan, Van der Donck meticously recorded the earliest moments of contact with the Lenape people that, had he had his way, may have rewritten history as we know it. 

The first part of a soon to be series of plays telling the story of New York from forest to grid. Follow this "island of many hills" as it becomes right-angled grids and towers of steel through verbatim performances of historical texts. These are immigrant stories; stories of immigrants reshaping land in the most optimistic ways. But what is lost when what you seek is gained? 

They'll be a few light appetizers throughout the reading. And grapes. That will become wine. You'll see.

Common Ground
Aug

7:00pm 7:00pm

Common Ground

The Commonground is a series of monthly events for young and emerging artists

across disciplines to meet their creative soulmates.

Organized and led entirely by volunteers, The Commonground is free of charge

for all 60 attendees. The evening begins with a brief group discussion, led by an

entertainment industry professional. This discussion will focus on “knowing the

table you sit at, and the table you want to sit at" -- that is, sharpening your sense

of self, your pitch, and what to look for in creative partners. The 60 artists are

then split into 3 groups of 20 to participate in the centerpiece of the evening: a

series of rapid-fire one-on-one networking meetings (à la speed dating).

Throughout Commonground meetings, there will be refreshments, sign-ups for

ongoing creative groups and projects, creative brainstorming tools to play and

plan with, and industry professionals to answer questions and provide guidance.

The Commonground operates on the belief that fostering great creative

partnerships leads to the creation of great art, and that great art is a service to all.

We seek to eliminate barriers-to-entry and increase the breadth of exposure

young artists have to like-minded collaborators.

We hope to hear "We got our start at The Commonground" for years to come!

Emergency Artist Response

To our fellow artists, audience members, neighbors, family and friends:

We are deeply disturbed by the tragic events that occurred yesterday in Charlottesville and we condemn these vile and hateful acts.

With the support of The Artist Co-Op, we are organizing an emergency artist response session on Thursday, August 17 from 6-9PM.

The goal is to provide open and productive space for our communities to come together and process these events as well as to activate for the future. Together we will explore avenues for action and activism while inviting an artistic response.

This discussion is open to people of all color and creeds; however, we are taking full responsibility to act and organize without placing the burden to lead the way on our friends of color. Racism and white supremacy is pernicious and all too prevalent in our country. It is up to all of us to root it out, in all of its forms.
