    Harvardwood: Impact in 2020

    What a year it has been. 

    Our team at Harvardwood is excited to provide you with our 2020 Impact Report - even as the pandemic upended much of Harvardwood’s traditional program structure, we still managed to serve our student and alumni members - and our virtual events had the widest reach in our history!

    We could not have had the impact we did without the generous time and support from our VIP supporters, who generously gave their time for panels, master classes, salons and more in 2020. 

    Thank you also to those who participated in our 101 Bootcamp and other wonderful programs. 

    As you can see below, your efforts reached 750+ individuals, some as far away as Hong Kong: 

    Special thanks to our partners at the Office of Career Services, Office of Fine Arts, and the Harvard Club of Southern California

    In addition, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to the individuals who donated generously in 2020 to our programs.

    We are grateful for such a supportive community of individuals who have made all of this possible. One day, those 50 Harvard students will have become noted creatives in whatever industry they choose, and they will remember the Harvard creatives who gave their time and talent to them during the year of Covid. As in the Harvardwood tradition, they will pay it forward.

    Thank you for everything this year.

  • Exclusive Q&A With Julio Vincent Gambuto AB '00 (writer/director and creator of Team Marco)

     Julio Vincent Gambuto AB '00 is a writer and director, based in New York City. Team Marco, Julio’s debut feature film, is now available nationwide in the US and Canada, from Samuel Goldwyn Films. Check it out. Julio also wrote that viral essay about the pandemic that 20 million people read around the world. Now, he’s a weekly contributor to Medium.

    Q. What about your upbringing in Staten Island first inspired you to write, direct, produce, etc. and get involved with the film industry?

    A.
    Being an artist in an Italian-American family can be tough. We’re the children of immigrants, so when you get the chance to go to Harvard, the last thing your parents really want to hear is that you want to be an artist. My family has always been remarkably supportive, though. They trusted me from the beginning, and it’s really only because of their love and support that I was able to stay the course. Specifically, I think Italian-Americans are natural storytellers. We are a very dramatic culture — at least in my family — so stories are how we communicate. I actually discovered that for myself at Harvard. I realized freshman year that a lot of people around me communicated only through intellectual sparring — not all, but many — and that was a different form of communication than I had been used to from a working-class family. I just wanted to tell stories. It’s how I connect to people.

    Q. What motivated you to continue studies at USC in Directing?

    A. To be honest, I was just very frustrated that my acting career wasn’t going anywhere. I had a movie deal with an independent film company to make a film based on my one-man show (Julie from Staten Island), but it fell through during the recession in 2008, so I put myself back in school.

    Q. In what ways did you get involved in film while at Harvard?

    A. I was very involved in theater with the HRDC. I loved it. I came to film much later in my life. I was an actor right out of school. I did a lot of downtown theater in New York, working with an LGBTQ+ theater company. I did some improv and then went into standup comedy to prepare for my one-man show. The show was really a turning point for me. I ran it in New York monthly for two years, then in LA. We had an independent movie deal, but it fell through in the ’08 recession, so I put myself back in school and went to film school at 32.
