Calaveras county land holder, lottery winner and filmmaker Dennis Sanfilippo
recently announced the closure of Nashville country music label Big 7 Records
and digital D7 Sounds LLC worldwide music production out of Copperopolis
to turn all assets, catalog and benefits over to a new Calaveras county nonprofit
organization called the Creative Community Cooperative.
Concentrating on filmmaking, he is in production of his second film “Rough Boys”,
produced here in Calaveras county starring local blues celebrity Charlie Brechtel.
His first silver screen release “Rebel on the Highway” was partially filmed on one of
his larger ranches on Pool Station Rd and in Lake Tulloch’s finest lakefront home.
Local actors, producers and staff were used.
Rich Varrasso, who managed the Big7 musical affairs is now renamed
Executive Director of the new community networking NPO Trade Board.
Turning old record company assets into a new Creative Community will not only
benefit the local gig economy (musicians, artists, actors, producers and support)
but also allow world-wide market access through digital technology brought here
to the county.
“We need to make films and produce our own music scene here in the Motherlode,
there are so many talented folks to be promoted.” claimed Varrasso about the newly
formed chamber of talent.
The Creative Community Cooperative has a new website and they are offering a FREE
2019 Copper Membership while things are coming together. Unlike most other business
associations, the Creative Community will be Cooperative. And that’s the promise.
Official break-out August 1st 2019.
