The gears of tropist.com have started to turn. I’ve now setup shop on Martha’s Vineyard for the summer, and once Brendan arrives we will hit full tilt. Brainstorming over ideas for the last couple of months has been really rewarding and to finally be starting production of the site is surreal.
I’ve realized that film-making is a tougher industry than I imagined it would be and that connections are even more important than they say. I know that once tropist is up and running we’ll be able to give all those talented artists a real outlet.
A little food for thought:
Last year there were 2,613 feature length films submitted to the Sundance Film Festival for 120 spots.
Hollywood releases only 350-400 feature length films a year.
