Red Elevator is a production company that utilizes multiple mediums to foster a cooperative relationship between performing arts & the emerging technological revolution, creating work that showcase the myriad talents of rising artists and cultivates creative ways for those artists to engage with their audience.
In 2007, shortly after graduating from NYU and within weeks of birthing the idea for the company, Rachel and Dan assembled an administrative team, conceived a mission statement, acquired an EIN and financial sponsorship, put plans in motion for a handful of artistic projects, and drafted a lengthy and ambitious but highly feasible list of goals for the company. To appease and/or increase your curiosity, here’s the short list:
Progressive, experimental and multimedia theater. Short films for web and festival distribution. A webcomic. Graphic art. Highly interactive fundraising events. A radio play series that fuses the style of the 40s with the technology of today. A webseries that capitalizes on the public’s growing voyeuristic addiction with an innovative form of realism.
That was then. This is now.
In the years since, Red Elevator split its members between both coasts and has focused on collaborating with other, similarly minded companies to produce exciting theater and out-of-the-box short films. In 2011 Red Elevator jumped back on the event boat with the Second Annual No Budget Film Festival, and continues to partner with NBFF producers cARTel: Collaborative Arts LA on multiple projects, including Brokechella and their winter art party. Red L plans on revisiting earlier ventures like comic books and radio plays in the year ahead.
Although concepts like comics and shows for the web are no longer new, as they were in 2007, they are mediums that consistently produce wonderful results that we are excited to revisit.
