Triggerstreet

I attended a Triggerstreet get together in Hollywood this weekend. For those of you that are interested in film making at any level, this website is for you. Not only does it have a screenplay section, but it has a book, short films, short stories, and a play section.
Dana Brunetti & I

Dana Brunetti and Kevin Spacey are the founders of Triggerstreet. I took this quote off his bio on the site.

"Using the internet for which it was created: a mode of communication - No longer do you need to "know somebody" to get a foot in Hollywood's door. We offer the chance of exposure and access for filmmakers and writers alike, to showcase their talent from anywhere, while at the same time giving everyone the ability to view and judge the work submitted. It's an opportunity for talent and great ideas to be discovered by all."

Part of the Triggerstreet community on Hollywood Blvd.

Not only have I made some great connections on the site, but I've made some great friends. It is a place to get feedback, exposure, and plenty of opportunities. The message board is a great meeting place for all filmmakers. Triggerstreet also puts out a podcast on Itunes to keep you updated on all things Hollywood. I asked Dana a couple of questions at the get together.

What do you know now that you wished you had known when you first started?

To not be too ambitious.


What kind of advice could you pass along to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps?

Perseverance.


Not only is Dana the founder of Triggerstreet.com but he's a producer of such movies as 21, Columbus Day, Fanboys, and Bernard and Doris to name a few. 21 opens nationwide on March 28th.

That's awesome! You had so many people... makes the NY get together look paltry!

It's a really great place. I need to utilize it more... I will in May.

Awesome!
