So what has been up with me and the crew.

Hey all.  After a long hiatus I am back here to share with you what is going on with me, 11 Bang Bang and Dumbsaints. As for me I slugging away. I have an art show in May that I am working on, and I am leading a veterans’ mental health advocacy group.  I also have a radio show that I am pretty proud of.  As far as 11 Bang Bang goes, I am working on the incorporation of 11BB.  We are looking for people to invest in our production company. At least get us up and running.  We have 2 solid projects in the works, and we also want to do a web series in the near future.  This will help us break into TV which is something I really want to do.  Well all are doing a crash course in crowdfunding and social media. We each a 3 books from Seed & Sparks; which is the crowdfunding platform we will be raising money from.  I am growing my hair out so I can play Jack Kerouac.

Also I have to go to the media about my arrest and give them the facts about my arrest. I  have to get that out before the crowdfunding campaign. The record is wrong and I have to fix it.

If you want to read about the arrest go to Explanation.

I am going to be writing here a lot more. I really need to invest time in my writing. And there is a lot to write about, and not all of it is about film and art.

And one last thing, we are looking for a female filmmaker who a producer producer/director.  We want   female input to what we are doing.

Hey all, I hope you all are doing well. As for me, I am hanging in there. Got some painting last week and plan to get a lot more done this week. As far as the film goes last week I got pulled from every direction. I am in a situation where I help a lot people, which has been taking up my time. Grrrrr.  This is also why I didn’t get to write last week. But time management is always going to be an issue for you. Fear not though there is a lot of helpful articles out there for you to read.

What else is going on? I was contacted by an actress that I have followed for years contacted me about my feature film an well as my idea for a TV series. She is out in LA and is working with some producers. We will see what happens. So I really need to bust my ass and get these projects done.

The quick update of 8 June 15

So I haven’t been on here is a while. Since March I think.  Anyways, here is what is going on, I had stopped working on film for a while, but now I am back at it. I am back to researching and developing my film on sexual violence and combat veteran issues, as well as starting to do character bio’s.  I am also planning my production company that I want to start when the screenplay is finished and it is time to raise capital to make it.

I am also going to be working on a some ideas for series that will be either for TV or the web. If I do a web series, it is with the hope that it does well enough to gain the attention of a network. Hi HBO. I heart you.  I have a few ideas in mind, one of which is set here in Tampa and uses the Tampa Bay and its people as a back drop. Tampa has a great music and art scene. As far as the film scene goes it lacks desperately. You have a lot of monkeys with cameras running around making substandard films. But, thankfully,  there are a few talented people making interesting, quality work.

I also have started to paint again. What got me going again is that I was commissioned to do a piece. This has gotten back to painting a series of paintings. I plan on having enough work done to be in a show in about 4 to 6 months as well as having the feature written and the production company ready to go.  Once I have this all ready to go I plan on putting this out to the media. And those people who know what happened regrading the film on sexual violence and the ordeal I suffered know that this will be a big deal.

If you want to talk about investing in either my projects or production company let’s talk. Contact me at timschroyer@gmail.com.

Hey new followers.

Hello to all my new followers.  I am Tim from Tampa , Fl. I am a filmmaker and creator of content, and multidisciplinary artist. I feel you shouldn’t limit yourself creatively, for it kills chances to create and make inroads with other creative people that will only make you better.  Creativity breeds more creativity.   Like the my blogs name indicates, this is my journey into film. As I learn I will share with you. I want to help others and by me sharing with you what I know, and by getting your feedback I too shall learn and grow. This is also my journey into my creative endeavors.

So about me, I am a retired United States Paratrooper who served in the 82nd Airborne Division. I was a team leader who who was heading to Special Forces and Ranger School until I broke my back on a jump in May 94. In filmmaking I am a producer, director, writer and act when asked. I am a natural born leader and I like having some control over the projects I am involved with; which is why I love producing.  I have a background in fine art photography and sculpting and when I realized that I was never going to go to film school I decided to just jump in and teach myself. Today there is so much information online and in books you can teach yourself.  I taught myself how to drive and swim, so filmmaking was no big deal.

My current projects are: developing a feature film dealing with sex trafficking and combat veteran issues, a series that I would like to shoot in Tampa, working with 2 talented artist that I plan to curate their shows. I also like writing about a wide range of topics: film and art, politics and social issues, and about my personal life just for fun.

The film I am developing on sex trafficking and combat veteran issues which are near and dear to my heart. This film idea started in 2011, when I decided I was going to take on the of sexual violence as a film.  I had seen the work of a friend who was a sexual violence advocate, and believed it was something I should make a a film about. I teamed up with the talented writer Semone Fournillier  and she produced a first draft of a script. Her screenplay dealt with rape, underage prostitution and pedophilia. I did a lot research on these subjects and gained a lot of knowledge about these various topics. While I was doing research, I got into a lot of trouble. I was trying to do the right thing and went completely about it the wrong way and so I am paying a price for my stupidity.  Still non the less, I am committed to doing a film on sexual violence, which has now evolved to sex trafficking; which I find to be the worst of all sexual violence acts. It is forced rape for profit, plan and simple.

Since I am veteran, veteran issues are near and dear to my heart. I’m making a film that deals with veterans who actually did the fighting and killing. Those are the guys I really care about. I found a way to discuss both topics in one film. My goals for this film are simple: I want to make a huge impact with this film. I want to open peoples eyes and educate them. Mu hope for this film is it makes a difference and make a change.

I am going to stay committed to this blog. Something I haven’t been in the past. Please share it with your friends and please give me feedback.

Grinding away.

Back to the grid. I am doing my research for my film that I have written about on here. It gets hard sometime. I am a vet. I know a lot of my brothers and sisters suffer. Especially those who did directly or indirectly do the killing. It can be a motherfucker. Plain and simple.  And it hurts. The film I am doing is a lot about pain and painful things; however, they things that need to be discussed. We as a country tend  ignore issues like combat vets issues and the sex trade. It makes people uncomfortable when we talk about them.  Well guess what America, that is America, regardless if you choose to except it or not. And trust me, these things will fester and grow. And there will be a point where we will have to pay more than we had too.

What kind of filmmaker do you want to be? You can be a fluffy filmmaker that doesn’t take on any real subject.  Tampa is full of them. We are the city of fluff. If you are into one dimensional film, Tampa is where you want to be.  But then there are a few people who are trying to say something and using film as a  medium to say it. I have a lot to say and find I have many tools of saying them, whether it be film, a series, a painting, theater or whatever is at my disposal .  But I’m out there using them, and so should you.

What kind of filmmaker or artist, do you want to be? Do you have things you want to say and discuss. For me, art, film, and whatnot is just tools for me to communicate things I want to talk about. The series I am developing is about topics I want dive into and explore subjects that I find interesting and relative, and also showcase good music and talented artist.   Go do the same. There are so many ways to express yourself and so many ways to get it out there in front of people. that you really have no excuse not be working on something. I know I have don’t.

This week of 2 Sept 2014

Ok, here’s what’s on my agenda for film this week: write 5 post here, dive into my screenplay books, start reading My War by Colby Buzzell, something I think you all should read. Work on the outline for the feature I am working dealing with the sex trade and veteran issues, and do character development on characters for the series and finally work on the business plan with my cousin for my production company.  6 things.

I have slacked on my all the stuff for way to long, and that is unexceptionable.  Right now I am in a transformational stage in my life, and I want to be successful and help others.  I challenge you all to pick threes things that you want to do creatively and do them. If you have suggestion on something you want me to write about, let me know,  for I would love to take on  subjects that you are interested in. And please, keep me honest and hold me accountable for these goals.  I need to be pushed.

And finally, may you all have a productive week.
