Part 2 of my series on NJ Filmmakers focuses on PJ Bracco of Red Hook Films. This NJ resident and alumni of Boston University’s College of Theatre Arts, holds a BFA in acting and is an award-winning actor/director who has worked in theatre and film from Boston to New York City.  Some of his credits include Dopey in Balm in Gilead, Hamm in Endgame, Paul in the award-winning feature The Court, The Smoker in The Gambler’s Club, and Paul Raimo in Raimo’s Price.  In 1997 he launched his company Red Hook Films, right out of his own living room in Brooklyn and has been developing and producing films ever since.  Red Hook Films produces features, shorts, music videos and commercials (check out the ones for the Draft House in Long Branch and No Joe’s Café in Red Bank). We're in for a Long Night, a music video for the band The Waffle Stompers and another music video Lovers in London for the band Hollander, both premiered at the Garden State Film Festival this past April. PJ has been in front of the camera as an actor (acting reel) and behind the camera as producer, director, and editor, and we’ll find out what else. Actually we can add musician to this as well, but more on that during the interview. Exactly how do you launch a film production company from your home? This is just one of the many questions I’ll be asking PJ. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
