WHAT’S HAPPENING IN TAMPA?
To find out, please join us on Tuesday, February 19th at the Holiday Inn Express, 3990 Tampa Rd, Oldsmar from 7-9 pm and hear what Tampa Film Commissioner Tyler Martinolich has to say.
Martinolich joined Film Tampa Bay in 2013. He has been an adjunct professor of film & media arts at the University of Tampa since 2008. Prior to joining the film commission, he worked in the Tampa Bay area as a feature/commercial producer and production manager. Two of the feature films on which he worked were “Sunlight Jr.,” a 2013 movie starring Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon about how a Florida couple handles an unexpected pregnancy while holding down minimum wage jobs; and “The Glass Window,” a 2011 film about a young man who travels to a strange island in the Bahamas.
Targeting smaller independent films and their six- or seven-figure budgets has proven successful in the Tampa Bay area, with a busy local filming schedule in 2018, five high-profile projects planned in 2019, and the promise of more announcements in the coming months.
