The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2017

Join Tribeca Flashpoint College students in supporting the fund raising efforts for four charitable organizations during Band Together: Spring 2017’s Production-In-Action!

All first-year TFC students are competing to raise money for one of four charitable organizations with the help of four bands, all with a corporate connection:

  • Sarah's Circle, supported by "The Exceptions" (Northern Trust Bank)
  • Chicago Food Depository, supported by "The Wrong Boys" (Chicago Mercantile Exchange)
  • A Leg To Stand On, supported by "Chicago Rock Exchange" (Apple)
  • Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund, supported by "Age Against the Machine" (RecClix)

Through social media, video PSAs, and a live battle of the bands event, each student-led team will create a professional-caliber marketing campaign to encourage contributions to their cause. As donation totals go up, so will a team's chances of wooing our three judges: each of whom will award additional funds to the total amount raised.


Tribeca Flashpoint College (located in downtown Chicago) is a digital media arts college offering hands-on degree programs in Film, Recording Arts, Animation & Visual Effects, Graphic Design, and Digital Marketing. TFC offers a progressive training model through which students begin using industry-standard equipment and software and working on real-world client projects during their very first semester on campus. They graduate with robust resumes, professional-quality portfolios and reels, and the insider industry knowhow and connections they need to step seamlessly into their careers.

MORE ABOUT PRODUCTION-IN-ACTION: An integral part of TFC’s first-year curriculum, Production-In-Action provides students with the opportunity to be part of a large-scale, real-world production experience.
