Friday, April 30, 2010 - 9:00 AM - Tampa Indie Film Log for Filmmaker C. A. Passinault

An Ultra-Secret Indie Film Format In The Works

I have a confession to make. I have a secret indie film project that I’ve been working on (actually, I have hundreds, upon hundreds, of good ideas which I consider to be trade secrets, but this is one of my top secrets. I am a creative, educated person of many ideas, and many secrets, and I have the mental horsepower, and experience, to work them out). It’s a new type of indie film which, to my knowledge, has not been done before. I’ve been working on this new format, or type, of indie film since 2005 (I always make detailed long-term plans), and other than an actor and a prominent local news anchor, I haven’t told anyone any details about it. In the world of indie film, and as an indie filmmaker, this is truly my ace card. This new type of indie film will give me an unmatched advantage as a filmmaker, and I expect it to be one of many tools which may make me the most visible, and top, filmmaker in the Tampa indie film scene. There won’t be a filmmaker in Florida who will be able to outdo my efforts in indie film, unless they, too, copy the concept, and by the time that it is revealed, they will be too far behind the curve, and will have to do too much catching up, to overcome my industry inertia (additionally, with Tampa Bay Film and my other publications, everyone will know that the source of these concepts is me. Steal from me, and refuse to give credit where it is due, and you will destroy your credibility).
Think that I’m going to give any hints, or details, here, right now? No way! Although it may be a revolutionary idea, it’s not hard to do once you learn the details, and that’s why I can’t say anything right now. You can file this under “Project Dragonfly” for future reference, as I will refer to that project name once it is revealed. The project is so secret, as a matter of fact, that I did not stick to tradition, and didn’t even give out any hints or clues in the name. I chose Dragonfly because I am rather fond of the sneaky, and stealthy, nature of the highly skilled, predatory insect (Also, have you ever looked at the intricate coloration and the design of the Dragonfly? Awesome. Incredible. The process of evolution has me beat as a designer, hands-down). Additionally, I like Dragonflies because they eat lots of mosquitoes, which are quite annoying, much like certain "filmmakers" who are buzzing around Tampa right now.
So, for the past five years, I have been working in secret, in the dark confines of a lab, working steadily on Project Dragonfly. The concept is quite sound, and will be so effective, I predict, that I no longer consider it to be experimental. I’ve tested it quite thoroughly, and once it is revealed, and deployed, it will be fully operational.
Project Dragonfly will enhance some of my other projects, too, as it is a hybrid technology. Filmmakers, once they see, and experience, what Project Dragonfly is all about, will beat themselves up, and will wonder why they never thought of doing that.
Well, it’s because they are not me. It's also because most filmmakers limit themselves by only making indie films, and not doing other things, as well. Remember, I invested many years becoming professionally certified in a wide variety of different fields. This gives me an advantage over most competitors, who generally have one-dimensional business mind sets, and are limited because they refuse to think outside of the box. They also tend to follow others, and do not think for themselves, innovate, lead, or take the initiative (and you wonder why most people, and filmmakers, bore me. I'm at the stage in my life, and in my career, where I don't tolerate simpletons, and I simply do not have to. I only have time to surround myself with the smartest, and the best, anyway; don't worry of these statements come off as cocky, or even arrogant, for now, because the future will validate them. I do rather enjoy the luxury of speaking my mind, and I tell it how it is).
Another benefit of Project Dragonfly, too, is that it will kickstart some other project lines which are important to me, and will make them extremely cost-effective to do (I will give one clue: Killing two, or even three, birds with one stone). Project Dragonfly is on schedule to being revealed by 2012, and could debut as early as next year.
I am very sorry if this is hard to comprehend, or to figure out what I am talking about, but it will be made clear once I am able to unveil it. The intention of this post was not to give away my store, or to put out a good idea which can be stolen from me, and then used against me before I have a chance to use it myself. It is to demonstrate that what you see isn’t the entire picture. What I write about, and what I allow others to see, is a tiny fraction of the scope of things that I am working on. Yes, I have a master plan, and there isn’t a person, organization, or business (even Hollywood can’t touch these ideas. All the money in the world can’t compete with great ideas, and these are not for sale, at any price. They are mine, and they will be used in my career, as well as used to benefit Tampa filmmakers) in the world who can compete against it. Every single thing that I’ve been working on has an important purpose in the master plan.
Oh, and you haven’t seen anything, yet. I have a lot of other indie film-relevant ideas, too, which will prove to be revolutionary. I intend to lead by example. It is my hope that my efforts will inspire a new generation of Tampa filmmakers to work together and make Tampa indie film an innovative leader in the independent film industry.
Time will reveal all.
