Redrawing The Map Of Indie Film. - Taking A Break To Prepare

Saturday, February 19, 2011 - 5:15 PM - Tampa Indie Film Log for Filmmaker C. A. Passinault

Reconsidering My Agenda

I’ve been working, a lot, on my photography business lately. I’m currently completely consumed with working on an array of 11 marketing and support sites, new contracts, and new marketing tools. It’s taking all of my time.
It’s important, too. I need to get back to making money, and I’ll need that money to do what needs to be done in Tampa indie film. I’m not going into specifics here, but I will say that the economic crash of late 2008 had an effect on my business interests, too. On top of this, my expenses actually went up, as well! Thus, I’ve been in a deadlock for the last few years. This is going to change, and it will change in the next few weeks. In the next few weeks, business plans which I’ve working on since 2007 will finally be in play, and I have a feeling that I’ll be in the position where I’ll never look back. I’m finally going to get things done, and they need to get done!
Like I said, though, it is taking up all of my time. The road to the future begins with my career as a professional photographer. Photography first, for this year, and then next year, with the support of my photography business, I can delegate, and then move on to event planning and stage productions (as well as the film festivals, which should be on schedule). Within three years I will be working more as an event planner, DJ, and doing stage productions far more than I will working as a photographer (which isn’t saying that I will use my photography career to get somewhere and then discard it. Not hardly. I intend to become one of the best photographers in the world, eventually, as I love it. I will never stop working as a photographer, even after everything else comes online.). With the new equipment that I’ll be getting this year, too, I’ll finally be able to start making indie films; within four years, I intend to be one of the top Tampa filmmakers, and intend to be making feature independent films. Regarding my first film projects, however, just don’t expect to see any of them until my first film festivals, so everyone will have to wait.
Enough about business, though, as I have something else to say, and it is about Tampa Bay Film, and this Tampa Film Blog.
Although I stand behind my opinions 200%, I realize that I’ve been stating the obvious, which tends to piss people off more than anything else. I also no longer have the time to get into these petty, silly fights with Tampa filmmakers. So, it is my intention to be more positive here from now on, when I actually do have the time to post. Although I intend to review films and update the Tampa Bay Film sites, attacking others is not among my goals, as it is pointless, and is more of a waste of time than anything else (fighting scams on my modeling and talent resource sites is another story, though. That fight will continue, and, no, I do not consider anyone in the Tampa film scene to be anywhere near being classified as a scam of any sort.).
I met with some of my people, and we all agreed that mixing a crusade and a business was a conflict. Since I will be aggressively marketing my businesses and working in the coming weeks, we decided that it wasn’t a good idea for people to get the impression that I was fighting people a lot online. Sure, I was winning, in my opinion, but the image of a cyberbully is not one that I want to be stuck with, which may be the perception when most people don’t have access to all of the facts. The intention of Tampa Bay Film, the Tampa Bay Film sites, and this Tampa Film Blog wasn’t, and isn’t, to slam Tampa filmmakers. Believe that.
So, this is a truce. I will stand down with my out-of-the-way criticisms. I know that I attempted to do this before, and went right back to fighting when others attacked, but I intend to stick with it this time. Besides, if I am attacked again, the attackers might just find themselves in legal trouble, this time around. So, I suppose we can all agree to disagree, mind our own business, and do our own thing. I think that I made my point, and I don’t want to keep fighting with certain people forever. This has been going on for long enough.
Effective immediately, I will be reviewing the content on the Tampa Film Blog, and some of it will be removed. I went even further with my other blogs. My two photography blogs, for example, have been completely taken offline. They will be rebooted in a few days.
Also effective immediately, because of my schedule, updates to the Tampa Film Blog will slow down. It may be months before I have much time to post much of anything (although I will post whatever announcements are sent our way). Rest assured, however, that independent film is extremely important to me, and I consider it to be my next big thing, much like web sites became my big thing in the late 1990's. First is photography, then comes events, and then comes indie films and other production projects. Starting this year, I will be shooting more video and indie film footage than any Tampa filmmaker, and perhaps even more than all of the filmmakers combined (I’ll be shooting daily, which is one reason why I am building a computer with 10 TB of storage. Why I’ll be shooting this much, I can’t say- not yet, at least. With that computer proect, though, at least you can see why I’ll be needing more money.)
And, with that, I'm done. For now. I suppose that we will all find out how this pans out, in time; wish me luck.
