Tampa Film Blog Adjustments And Tampa Film Updates

I spent several hours this morning adjusting the Tampa Film Blog. Nineteen Blog posts had to be archived, and the index had to be cleaned up. The total blog archive is now over 126 pages long, making the Tampa Film Blog the largest indie film blog in Florida, perhaps the largest in the United States, and a lot larger than our closest competing blog (you know who you are). The Tampa Film Blog is just over a year old, and this is an impressive achievement. The blog post index will be adjusted with summary information and keywords shortly, as it is difficult to tell what they posts are about by reading the overly-clever titles. The design of the Tampa Film Blog may also see an update soon.

During the compiling process, several sealed posts were activated and reintegratedinto the archives. We may adjust this, but may also leave it because we don't want to censor what we have published. The point of this indie film blog is to tell it how it is, and that's exactly what we will do. What we almost did, but did not do, is to post the entire archive index on the front page of this blog. To do so would have made a cold war hot again. This said, the entire archive of the Tampa Film Blog is an interesting read, and everyone should be able to get a good grasp of what's really going on in the Tampa indie film scene by reading it. We are off to a good start in recording the history of the Tampa indie film scene, with the rise and fall of The Tampa Film Review, the era and the defeat of the Tampa indie film clique, and recent Tampa indie films produced and Tampa film festivals covered. This blog, and Tampa Bay Film, will increase coverage of the Tampa indie film scene at this point, and we will carefully document and record the ongoing story as the Tampa indie film scene begins its journey toward the foundation of the first Tampa film community, and earns respect for film in Tampa with a new generation of Tampa filmmakers.

Regarding the Tampa indie film war, it is now a cold war of sorts. The opposition is broken and disorganized, and they remain scattered in their defeat. We still have issues with a few stragglers, however, but they are no match for one of our sites, let alone all of them. We expect this cold Tampa indie film war to go on for at least another year and a half. With a drop off of both indie films being produced in Tampa Bay, and few Tampa film festivals coming up, this will be a year to build more Tampa indie film-relevant web sites and work on support resources. Tampa Bay Film is working on two more Tampa film support web sites, and I will be deploying an additional three film festival web sites later this year, for a total of five new Tampa film support web sites added to the fleet. Next year, 2010, should be interesting, with the debut of our first film festivals and the debut of some of my first indie films in a long time.

This may be a slow year for covering film festivals. We are almost halfway through the year, and are only down four film festivals. Of those four, I was only interested in covering one, and I missed it this weekend because I did not have a team in place and was busy working on other things. If I am lucky, I may cover two, or maybe three this year, and this does not include the 2009 review of the Tampa Bay Film Online Film Festival due at the end of the year. Our Tampa Bay Film interview team will be at full capacity to cover Tampa film festivals by the end of May, and the work on this team is another reason why I did not get to check out the film festival this weekend. Tampa Bay Film marketing material and equipment will be arriving in a few weeks, and we will be ready for anything by June 1.

I would also like to report that I will be making indie films this summer, on schedule. This will cut into my time, and may limit my availability to cover some film festivals. I have most of the equipment now, and will be picking up my new DV camera on May 21. Some of these films will be experimental shorts, and most of them will be highly classified. It could take a year for the larger projects to be unveiled (although they should be done this year), and at least a year before any "behind the scenes" coverage is published on Tampa Bay Film and the Tampa Film Blog. After the initial wave of films, expect the pace to increase between production and release. One of the reasons for the delay in the initial wave is because we are waiting for some of our film festival properties to become available. We will be producing, completing, and stockpiling films as we generate some lead time. The new short film Reverence will become one of the first of the major film projects to be completed and released. Another film that I will be working on will be a horror film titled Things that go bump! (it will make more sense when you see it... It's very, very creepy, and will be a very scary little film about nightmares and murder; with live actors and small puppets). I have an end of the world drama, too, but I can't even publish the name, or the premise, right now. It's very secret at this point. Another short film, Composure, is a romantic short film about people making connections. Composure has a very small cast (under five at this point, including a swimsuit model), and will be filmed over a weekend in north Tampa (all of these films are shorts with small casts and minimal crew, and will be shot over weekends).

At this point, I am very happy that I can finally begin to do what I've been training to do for the past eighteen years. I can't wait to begin building my portfolio of short indie films, covering most film genres, and will be working toward producing feature indie films within the next few years.

At this point, I can announce what my first feature films will be. I am currently dusting off the scripts for the following feature films in my library of scripts:

Realms - A Sci-Fi / Horror film, this is the sequel to the original Reverence feature film, and not the short film remake due this year. Listen up Tampa film fans, this one deals with vampires, another vampire film in a long list of Tampa vampire films! Expect a mono-fanged, buck-toothed vampire named Polly, who is hunted by an obese vampire hunter named Joe. I'm just kidding about that last part, by the way, and I promise that this will be the first indie vampire film ever seen without a priest character (who would be more at home in an exorcist film, in my opinion). And, no, seriously, don't plan on any nudity in this film. It's been done to death, and I have something better in store.

Invisible Ink - A romantic drama which I also wrote as a stage production. This one has limited sets and a tiny cast.

Net Worth - A lot of beautiful girls, no nudity, and a good story. You haven't seen a film like this, and I have a feeling that it will be popular with parent groups.

Principle - A film about the Tampa indie film scene. Originally drafted in 2002, it's been updated. I have a lot of good stuff to put in the revised script!

Duet - Another romantic drama. I don't recall what this is about. I have to go back and read my script.

Waveform - A musical comedy, much like a modern version of Beach Blanket Bingo mixed with Under The Boardwalk, without the stupid things that plagued Beach Blanket Bingo.

The Outcast - A film adaptation of an award-winning Christian church play that I wrote back in 1993.

Inducing Manic - This one is not mine. It's a feature film written by my friend, writer Rachel Eaglin. This is her film project.

She Wants To Be A Reporter - This one is a new script. It is a comedy / parody about local television news, and is set behind the scenes at a television station.
