10/22/15/0229 - Changed the legal entitiy on the intellectual property ownership to reduce potential liability. Finishing reviews to catch up site and preparing to launch online film festival.
Tampa Bay Film is not a legal entity, as it is a trademarked intellectual property trade name of this web site. The ownership of this properties and all content on this web site are currently under C. A. Passinault, but will soon be transferred to Passinault Industries LLC, along with Passinault’s business properties.
The reviews that have been in limbo are being finished up this week, which will catch up the site. Once done, we will work on assembling and re launching the online film festival, will write reviews to tie in with each of those films, will write additional reviews for independent films, and will work on making this web site mobile-friendly.
The next scheduled update, this Fall, will bring the online film festival online, will get the site as mobile-friendly as possible, and will add additional reviews.
Other content, such as the old Tampa Film Blog posts, will be updated and added consistently to the site once it begins to comply with our mobile-friendly format.

04/02/15/1018 - Put the online film festival featured film thumbnail array in standby in preparation for the launch of the new online film festival later this month.
We replaced the thumbnails with a red curtain thumbnail linking to the our main online film festival section. These will become image thumbnails for the first 16 films when the online film festival resumes operations.

01/08/15/1100 - Added universal legal disclaimer on the footer of all pages.
Updated the template for the entire site with a universal legal disclaimer defining intellectual property ownership, mainly trademarks, and a liability waiver. Added main disclaimer and a terms of use links which will become active once the site updates on the server.

12/31/14/0812 - Updated content and meta tags for 2015.
Updated information on web site template for 2015, although updates will not happen until the online film festival is ready to launch in the coming weeks.

08/05/14/1355 - Finished Installing Navigation Threads. Content additions can be resumed.
Finally finished installing the Navigation Threads, as well as the start of the scams section, and updates can finally resume. Much more needs to be added to the site, however.

07/13/14/2057 - Continuing work on site.
Still adding navigation threads and content, including necessary support sections. Changed color of update text, too, for site continuity (We like, maybe love, blue, but the site was way too blue. Green was also overdone, and too much like the BBS look of the first Tampa Bay Film site of 2007).

07/12/14/1600 - Adding Navigation Thread Menu for Sections. Adding content.
We are bringing the navigation thread menu, which is section contextual and located below the main menu at the top, and are adding new content.

06/14/14/1639 - Moved longer update posts to the news and blog section. Moved some recent, shorter posts back to the main index. Edited site content.
For continuity purposes, so as not to disorientate and lose our readers, we restored some of our update posts to the main page, as a lot has been changed on this site without actually updating it on the server, and now we are flirting with continuity issues in the format. Change must be gradual on the actual web site (we will archive some of those posts which were moved back to the front page here for archiving, eventually). We also moved some of the longer update log posts to the news and to the blog sections, where they are more relevant, as some of these posts need to be edited, expanded, and they deserve their own page. Preparing for full operations, too, we are also reading and editing Tampa Bay Film site content. We have some incredible content on the way!

06/07/14/1159 - Launched web site update section. Moved update section from front page to new section. Adjusted update format. Updated site content and code.
We launched the web site updates section today to support was is coming to the site, and moved update content from the front page to here. The old updates section on the front pages will be replaced by a new addition section, which will be kept small.
Site content has been adjusted and updated, too. We had a lot of reading to do. This justified the total refresh that we about to do to the site files on the server.
The next total refresh of the site files will be when we launch the new online film festival, which should be later this month. Each film will have a related independent film review in our new review section, which will have a lot of reviews over the Summer.

05/22/14/0836 - Tampa Bay Film: Ready For Action.
We just finished a check on Tampa Bay Film and its sites, which included search engine checks, and we are very happy with the results and the position that we are in.
Phase one is complete, and Tampa Bay Film and our fleet of new web sites are armed and ready for action. We can begin regular updates shortly.
Some of the things that we will be working on will be relaunching our online film festival, which has had a history of setting standards, success, and dominance, restoring our film blog by republishing its 500+ pages of content on this site (editing it, enhancing it, and organizing it correctly this time), and publishing independent film reviews, independent filmmakers profiles and filmography (see below, at the bottom, for our list), and other articles. Independent filmmaking tutorials, anecdotes, and filmmaking articles will be published on Tampa Film Revolution, too, the online publication of Tampa Bay Film.
Our underground film festivals will begin the Fall of 2014 with the debut of the Sunburn Film Festival, of which there will be over 6 a year. The Sunburn Film Festival will succeed where the Tampa Film Review and the Coffeehouse Film Review film festivals failed.
Phase two will come later in 2014, as we publish several new web sites to support Tampa Bay Film. These new web sites will be powerful. We will also develop web sites of domain names which we have in reserve, such as a new web site for the Tampa Bay Film Commission domain name. We will develop and deploy advanced new film festival web sites to go after the big film festivals in the Tampa Bay market, such as Gasparilla (GIFF) and Sunscreen, which we feel need to be put in their places.
Our film festival web sites, such as the Tampa Bay Film Showcase, the Reverence Film Festival, and the Revolution Film Festival, will be updated and maintained, as will our Tampa Bay Film Conference and Tampa Bay Film Community web sites, even though all of these event and support properties are on hold, and will probably remain on hold for several more years. We can wait until the independent film scene in Tampa Bay is ready for what we have to offer, because, currently, our efforts would be wasted on what is here. It is not ready.
In the meantime, our online film festival and our underground film festivals can carry us in the film festival area.
That’s not to say that we will not cover what is out there. There are some film festivals and events that we will cover, and we will have to do so to get up to speed to what we will eventually do. Marketing tools such as Tampa Bay Film cards will be printed in June 2014.
At any rate, we are very happy about how Tampa Bay Film and its sites are positioned, and were actually laughing about the search results on what we ran last night. We’ve never been more ready for what is coming.

03/28/14/1953 - Tampa Bay Film Back Online.
After a few days offline, and several months with no updates, Tampa Bay Film is now back online.
We’ve been busy doing work in other industries, two other fronts in our three front agenda, independent film being the third front, but a front which is equally important.
A professional independent filmmaking industry in Tampa Bay will be established, one which all professional independent filmmakers will benefit from, and independent film here will finally earn the credibility and the respect that it needs.
We are Tampa Bay Film, and we are the voice of Tampa Bay independent film. We are going to use that voice, and we will not be ignored.
This said, we are still busy at the moment, and it will be later this Spring before work can resume work on this site. Work will resume, however, and this site, as well as our agenda, is very important.
One huge feature that we will be looking forward to is launching our new online film festival this Summer. This online film festival will directly tie into our reviews section, too, as well as other relevant sections.
Also this Summer we will begin our film festivals with our flagship underground film festival, the Sunburn Film Festival. The Sunburn Film Festival is a small, ongoing underground film festival and peer group review where invited professionals gather together to watch and review independent films. These elite film festivals will be private events which can be mobilized and executed quickly and at little cost. They will be covered like a traditional film festival, however, making them just as visible and effective as one, just after they happen.
2014 will be an exciting time as the future of independent film in Tampa Bay is defined, and will finally begin.

09/29/13/0621 - Tampa Bay Film Work.
We are currently writing a coverage article about the Halloween Horror Picture Show film festival, which happened in Northdale in Tampa yesterday, which was the first film festival supporting independent filmmakers here in five years, in our opinion. We attended, and it was refreshing. This coverage will be published later.
The online film festival should be online in October 2013, with its first group of 16 independent films playing in the online film festival section and their corresponding reviews published in our reviews section. New films and reviews will be added regularly. New content, such as articles, interactive tutorials, tutorials, and tools will also be published, as well as new content on our film blog.
Tampa Bay Film will be upgraded to a full 3rd Generation talent and industry resource web site by early 2014, as what is online now is more like a prototype of a 3rd Generation talent resource web site, and needs more work done and new tools deployed.
Expect new posts and content on our Tampa Film Revolution web site, too, as this is long overdue.
Our film festival and film event web sites will be updated soon, which is needed to support events starting in 2014, which will begin with our underground film festivals, such as the Sunburn Film Festival and independent film peer group review events.
The first public film festival produced by Tampa Bay Film is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2015. This is the Reverence horror film festival and theme event. The support infrastructure for this new type of film festival will be complete by the Summer of 2014, along with a new web site. We will begin accepting independent film submissions for this film festival in late 2014. Please note that the Reverence Film Festival will NOT be competing with Danford’s Halloween Horror Picture Show horror film festival, which is different than what Reverence is (you’ll see. Both are very different, and have different purposes, and they compliment each other). Both are needed, and the Reverence Film Festival will specifically avoid being scheduled on the same weekend as the HHPS, and Reverence will freely promote it.
We will also be increasing coverage of film festivals, events, and news in Tampa Bay independent film which others are doing, beginning with an investment into resources that we will need to do the job at the level, and the consistency, which is necessary. Yesterday’s coverage was good, and we had a presence at the film festival, but we could do much better, and we will by 2014.

09/10/13/0930 - Still tied up with other projects. At the very least, however, we will begin updating and adding Tampa Film Blog posts to the Tampa Bay Film Blog on this site sometime this month, with several posts added per week, starting with the most current and working our way back. The entire 600+ pages of content of the Tampa Film Blog will be online here on this site by early 2014. We will also get the new online film festival and the review section online this Fall, although it now looks like it will be Spring 2014 before we get to over 100 films on the online film festival and over 100 film reviews published in our film review section. It will take time, but it will get done. We certainly have time, with most major Tampa Bay Film projects, the beginning of many, not due for another year. With Lisa's film blog a failure, and no longer online, we can take our time with the blog posts, too, as we no longer have competition in that area. Likewise, we have very little competition in every other area of the Tampa Bay independent film scene, as well, with our opposition largely eliminated as a result of the Tampa indie film war, which began in early 2008, over five years ago. They should have never tried to take on Tampa Bay Film. They lost. We won, and continue to win. The Tampa indie film war is now an ongoing cold war with opposition which is on the level of third world countries, as we no longer have any peer level competition, if we ever did. Still, Passinault is now considering a new round of all-out, cutting-edge attacks on, which is our opinion to be, unethical and unprofessional elements on the Tampa indie film scene, which could last until we clean up the market in 2014 in order to pave the way for what is coming; at the very least, these attacks will test our new tactics and technologies. For more about what we are planning, please check out the August 2013 issue of Frontier Pop. We will also be posting a battle damage assessment of the Tampa Bay independent film scene on Tampa Film Revolution.

08/09/13/1914 - Attached TampaBayFilm.Com marketing and branding domain name, which has been offline and parked for several months, to this site today. This site is now live under that domain name (It was not promoted, and was kept on the down-low, until today, and will be marketed under that domain name. Until today this site's operating domain was a secret). Marketing resumes next month. Due to other web site work, it will be at least a week, at the earliest, before we do any work to this web site, which includes bringing the new online film festival and the review section online. We will also update and publish content from the old Tampa Film Blog on the new Tampa Bay Film Blog this Fall (some out there may have wished for the information to go away, but it will not, and by next year it will be very easy to find through Internet searches). This afternoon, we also renewed five domain names for Tampa Bay Film sites (and there are more than that in total); our investment into the future of independent film in Tampa Bay is strong!

07/24/13/0912 - We are still holding on those updates, due to being hung up on the web site work for Aurora PhotoArts. We will not be able to do any updates until early August at the earliest, but once those updates begin, they will be aggressive. It looks like we will not be making our 100 film playlist by September, as it was planned, but we will get as many films online as possible by then, and expect the number to be around 50. Adding any more than the number that we had planned, which maxed us out in consideration for optimal SEO performance, is simply not possible, because the content has to be crawled and indexed. So, it's actually a good thing that we were delayed, because after the first 16 films and their reviews are online, we will be able to add a more leisurely, and more comprehensive, 4 to 7 films a week. With the other content that we have to add, this is more balanced, and we will not be overloading the search engines. Once we begin, we will be constantly updating, with content added almost daily. We will get there, but it is taking time. We should be rerouting TampaBayFilm.Com to this web site within a week, however, and will easily exceed our 100 film and review goal for the online film festival and the review section, respectively, by later this year. Thank you for your patience!

07/05/13/0820 - Tampa Bay Film will begin aggressive updates the week of July 14, 2013, or slightly before, as we have some reviews and blog posts that we have to update and republish (both our online review site and the Tampa Film Blog have been down long enough to begin transferring their libraries of content to our new site, which is right here). Around this time, we will also reactivate our TampaBayFilm.Com branding and marketing domain name, and point it here.
Our new online film festival should be online with its initial playlist of 16 independent films and their reviews on the morning of Sunday, July 21, 2013. Because we are trying to get the online film festival to a playlist of 100 films by September, with their associated reviews also published in our independent film review section, we will be adding an average of 2 films and their reviews a day until we reach our goal.
Tampa Bay Film will be our most updated site for several months to come, as the new site has already been online just over 3 months, and it has been mostly just sitting here. This will change. Our front page will feature a giant update log, linking to the latest updates.
We are also going to be resuming the publication of Tampa Film Revolution, our online publication, which has been on standby for over a year because we’ve been really busy fixing some web site issues with our other sites.
Tampa Bay Film business cards and branded merchandise, which includes bumper stickers, beverage containers, coffee cups, and shirts, will be available next month, in August. Aggressive promotion of Tampa Bay Film will begin in September 2013.

06/14/13/0900 - Tampa Bay Film will be updated soon. Due to other web site projects and obligations, commencement of regular updates and the re launch of our online film festival has been delayed.
Our apologies to anyone who is frustrated with the lack of updates, especially if you have been waiting patiently. It will be worth the wait.

05/11/13/0858 - Regular content publication and heavy updates to Tampa Bay Film will begin next month. This new web site is performing well above expectations. Our voice will not only be heard, but it will be dominant! Instead of taking on the existing market, which is not actually in competition with us (We would if it were, however. They lucked out!), Tampa Bay Film will now pursue a strategy focusing on independent film, of which there are few alternatives currently in the Tampa Bay market. Our first Sunburn Film Festival, Private , invitation-only underground film festivals where a group of professionals and film fans (not that one. She gave up, and she is not objective and critical enough to be invited, anyway!) review independent films, especially locally produced ones, are scheduled to start in August 2013.

05/11/13/0850 - Our new online film festival, launching with 16 independent films, will launch the weekend of May 18, 2013, almost two months after the site launched, and will add at least 4 indie films a week to its play list. Each film will be reviewed in our review section, too. We expect to have at least 76 independent films playing on the online film festival by September 1 (and we will be trying to get at least 100 online by that date, which means that we would have to add 6 films per week, which would bring us to 105 independent films and their reviews by the target date, a 50% increase in publication frequency to offset the almost-two month delay) and their accompanying reviews.

04/16/13/0900 - New Tampa Bay Film Blog post: - Tampa Bay independent film war goes cold. New site performance. Upcoming Tampa Bay Film features.

04/16/13/0900 - Previous Tampa Bay Film Blog post: New Tampa Bay Film Blog Online.

03/23/13/1200 - New Tampa Bay Film site launched under its new Tampa Bay Independent Film operating domain name.


The voice of Tampa Bay independent film.
