The Lamp Project, after months of gathering and growing, planning and procuring, will begin to feature new content online beginning Tuesday, November 15. Starting then you’ll be able to check back at least weekly and find profiles of great artists who are out doing good work to better the world around them.
The Lamp Project currently accepts submissions of articles about artists and the causes they support. We are looking to feature underrecognized artists—quality artists who arguably deserve more recognition than they have received—and causes centering on education, disease, poverty, hunger, and human rights.
For more information, please see our submissions page.
A small early milestone: we have just passed 1,000 views. Thanks to all of our visitors! We’ll have some great writing on the site from our team of writers starting in November, so please come back soon.
We’re shooting a couple of miniature films now. The crew and cast are just stellar.
The second of the two shoots is this Saturday, October 23 in Los Angeles from 8a to 2p. We’re still in need of a few artists to join us. Most needed right now: a violinist, violist or cellist, a painter, and a scupltor. Also helpful would be a dancer and a photographer.
This will be “M.O.S.”, meaning we are not using the sound from the shoot. Images only. So actors who have one of the above artistic talents (but not at a professional level) are very much welcome.
Please contact us immediately through the contact form on this site or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With our fantastic Editor In Chief Deborah Bezanis at the helm, our writing staff of six has begun their first projects, to be featured online next month with the help of our three editors. The writing and editing staff continues to grow.
Our Director of Production and Post Production, Henry Truong, and our Director of Media Asset Management, Elias Issa, are overseeing a growing, nationwide, all-volunteer workflow to bring you interviews and other footage of great artists at work. Our first few projects are short films, shooting and editing next month, to highlight some of the social issues that The Lamp Project hopes to address. Thanks to our no-nonsense producer Mike Shields and our top-notch director/DP Tom Camarda – and a host of other amazing people – these are going to be incredible, a real showcase for what is possible when talented and creative people come together for a good cause.
Now it’s your turn. If you are reading this and feel that tingle – the lure of a challenge, an outlet, and a great opportunity to make a difference – please email Jeremy Olsen, our executive producer, at email@example.com and see how you can be a part of The Lamp Project.
Artist Jeff Mednikow provided the fantastic original black-and-white design for this logo, and artist Sophia Monico added finishing touches and developed a color palette. Continue reading
Just a quick update for those of you already following along: We’ll be able to unveil the new Lamp Project logo very soon. We’re also hard at work on some short videos to help explain what we do and hopefully to make you want to join us. And we now have writers hard at work on their first pieces.
We’ll also have Facebook and Twitter links for you real soon to make following us even easier. Plus, introductions to some of the people behind this project. All coming soon…
We’re growing. We have some incredible people working with us. We now have a P.R. Director, a Director of Development, an Editor-In-Chief and an Executive Producer. A fantastic artist is developing a logo for us. And we have artists and technicians of all kinds signing on. Want to join us?
We’re building our website and our organization. If you like the idea of supporting artists who are trying to make the world a better place, please stay in touch!
