Chronogram: TMI Project Presents Locker Room Talk on February 9

Stockade Works, a nonprofit film production organization based in Kingston, stepped in to document the experience of the Locker Room Talk workshops. The forthcoming documentary follows the teenage athletes as they participate in TMI Project’s writing and storytelling workshops. 

“Stockade Works is proud to be documenting the process so the message can be shared en masse to create real and lasting social change," says Masterson.

In the documentary, the high schoolers respond to a presentation by Porter, who explains the concept of the “manbox” as “how men are collectively taught,” or “the collective socialization of manhood.” Throughout the process they are encouraged to talk about their emotions in a way they may not have felt acceptable under their previous socialization.

Daily Freeman: Kingston High School to host event that addresses gender stereotypes

Kingston High School football players on Feb. 9 hope to kick off a season of change with “Locker Room Talk,” a memoir and story-telling program intended to challenge hypermasculine behavior and attitudes.

The program, which was developed by the non-profit TMI Project, is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the school auditorium, 403 Broadway.

“The TMI Project founded by Eva Tenuto, along with (film production company) Stockade Works ... approached the school district because they wanted to partner with us and work with our football team and with them about what it means to be a man.”

Gotham Magazine: Setting As Character: Ulster County on Film

It’s no secret that the Hudson Valley is home to countless Hollywood movie stars and producers—its lush and beautiful landscapes and proximity to New York City providing the best of both worlds. Though a handful of films have showcased the area over the decades, its cinematic footprint paled in comparison to other regions due to a flawed state program that didn’t consider the Hudson Valley “upstate.”

But that’s all changing.

Plans have been finalized to transform the building, now called The Metro, into a creative hub, tying in film production and other endeavors that will bring jobs and visitors into midtown Kingston.
