The real deal about the Tampa indie film industry by Tampa film expert C. A. Passinault


Sunday, January 25, 2009 - 9:00 PM - Tampa Indie Film Log for Filmmaker C. A. Passinault

Will This Ever End?

Ok, I'm not starting a fight with Joe Davison, and I'm not trashing what he does- or what he tries to do. I do, however, find his Is this what the new Tampa Film Network is going to be all about? Good Lord..... God help us all. Hey Joe, who gave you the award for a screenplay, anyway? It certainly wasn't for 100 Tears! Even worse, later Davison screenplays, such as as for his film Experiment 7, were even worse! Why do I want to pay you to learn bad habits?latest project, highlighted in the image to the right, to be amusing.
Actually, in my opinion, I don't have to do anything to this guy. He does a great job doing it to himself.
In fairness, however, this Tampa Film Blog has the largest reader base for his target market in the Tampa film scene, so here's the deal. If anyone is interested in signing up for Joe Davison's "screenwriting" class, I'll gladly forward you the information.
If anyone did sign up, that refund should be coming soon, however. That's my guess. I've seen photography workshops set up like this, and it usually works out that way.
Seriously, is this what the new Tampa Film Network is all about? Is there actually any free networking and collaboration among Tampa indie film professionals, or is that what you say so you can gather people together to sell them things? Things that, in my humble opinion, the Tampa indie film market does not need, or want. Don't sign me up either- I've taken a good look at what is going on, and I don't want anything to do with it.
Also, Joe Davison, who in the hell did that goofy headshot of yours? As the top Tampa headshot photographer, I'd be embarrassed to have that headshot in my portfolio. As a casting director, it wouldn't get you an audition, either. Did someone convince you that this headshot is usable?
I suppose that sometimes the book is as good as the cover.
Joe, we need to talk. Seriously. Some evidence recently came to light which I would like to discuss with you. For some reason, however, your last two numbers have been disconnected, and you are unreachable. I'd email you through (ahem) Myspace, but I really don't want to get a weird email back like the last one that you sent to me (Gentle readers, please be warned that there is some colorful use of language ahead. Also, for maximum entertainment value, look at the picture of Joe when you read his wonderfully composed e-mails. Thank you!):

Hey fucktart!

Don't leave fucking comments like that on my personal myspace page. That really fucking pissed me off.

Fucking Ass Jockey! Espically about fucking indie films. You fucking jackass! No wonder the community is fucking failing.

Reminded me to pop you in the face when I see you again.

Fuck you!!

Hello Joe,
Your use of language is highly professional. I am inclined to take you even more seriously, now. Actually, since I assumed that we were friends, I am a bit concerned by your response. Is there something wrong with you, or are you just going through a lot?
The bottom line is that those comments were actually an offer for you to get with me and get some professional headshots taken FREE OF CHARGE. I was trying to be a friend and give you every professional courtesy. I do actor and talent headshots professionally, and no offense to whomever took those, but there are flaws that most casting directors would have an issue with. If I did work like that, I would not allow myself to remain in business.
If making comments on your profile is some sort of unpardonable sin, please let me know. I looked at many of the comments on there and figured it would be fine to post a few with tongue in cheek. You don't exactly have the most professional comments on there.
In regards to indie films and Tampa, I really have no idea what you were babbling about. If you are referring to my opinions about indie film, well, I firmly stand behind them. I have not been wrong about a single opinion that I have voiced, and since my opinions about you have always been supportive, I really have no idea why you are so hostile.
Oh, and concerning "popping me in the face", I can assure you that any assault on me would not be tolerated. I would take criminal and legal action if I were harmed in any way.
Please explain your behavior, and have a nice day. Also, please note that I did not have to use a single swear word to get my point across.
If this is "professionalism" in the Tampa indie film community, then perhaps real professionals need to be brought in to restore both order and productivity. I am beginning to feel that many in this community are not honest people, and that very few can actually be trusted because many seem to have hidden agendas and are only out for themselves. Your letter is disturbing, and I am very disappointed with you at this moment.
Chris Passinault

RE: Please Explain Yourself


I know it's you man! I was fucking kidding! Damn man you get so bent sometimes!


My response today, just like it was back then, is "yeah, whatever- you're weren't kidding". Well, I have to go. Joe, call me at my new client services number. We'll talk, and sort some issues out. I'd really like to bury the axe that you persist on swinging around before I start down the road of questioning everything that you do. Communication is the key.
For now, I have a... project..... to do for Tampa Bay Film. You know, the voice of Tampa indie film, and the most popular indie film web site in the Tampa Bay film market. Yeah, that wonderful site.
Oh, yes, and P.S. - My offer of free headshots is rescinded, and has been since you demonstrated to me how unprofessional you can be (back when I was misled into thinking that we were friends, over a year ago). You go with what you think what works for you. That'll be just fine.
By the way, Joe, any of your friends play with Photoshop? Do we know the_truth? Who was covertly behind the scenes pulling strings and stirring up trouble the past few years in this Tampa indie film war? Also, who started the slanderous rumors about me, anyway? We have much to discuss.
Hey, I'm trying to make peace here. You seem to have some sort of axe to grind with me, and I did not do anything to you. Why do you start things when you really should be concerned about what you may be starting?
Should I begin by posting more words of wisdom from Joe, or should we end this now, like civilized adults, by talking and working out our differences?

In parting, here is another email from Joe to me. Note the date:

Photographer needed


Hey man. I'll take you up on that offer for some headshots man. I need them badly.

Like in the next couple of days.

Let me know when is good for you.

Call my new cell


Well, Joe, you still need headshots badly, in my professional opinion. Don't expect to get them from me, however, and don't expect to get them from anyone else in the Tampa photography market- I'm better than most, and the photographers who could give you decent headshots are my friends. Good luck getting headshots. Thank God I never did those headshots! Honestly, if Joe wanted to get headshots from me, he'd get charged triple my rate, and I'd have several people with me to assist with the job. No, wait- make that ten times my rate. Better get some good tips, buddy!
Oh, you know what- maybe he could find a good photographer through the Tampa Film Network! Sorry, I needed the laugh, and I'm laughing really hard right now thinking about the wealth of professionals at those meetings.
