That's right folks, I'm on the road again. This week I'm headed to the south end of the Tampa Bay area, Manatee County for a quarterly Film Florida meeting. Film commissioners and industry professionals who belong to the Film Florida organization will converge on Manatee County for three days of meetings, workshops and networking.

The calendar includes marketing brainstorming sessions, tradeshow updates and a legislative think-tank, designed to help us earn back some of film incentive that was cut from this year's legislative budget.

I'll be back next week...hopefully with new ideas for marketing the Tampa Bay Film Commission as one of Florida's leaders and with a complete list of all the winners from Friday's 48 Hour Film Project awards party at Nova 535. It was a terrific party with a huge turnout. Coco and Kerri Bermudez deserve a HUGE round of applause for their accomplishments with this year's project.
