I just came back from lecturing with the Stage32 team in Trinidad, in connection with the Trinidad & Tobago Film Commission. What a wonderful time! The film professionals I met in Trinidad were passionate, creative, and asked all the right questions during the workshops I presented on legal issues in the film industry. I’ve lectured for Stage32 several times before ( https://www.stage32.com/webinars/Top-10-Legal-Traps-for-Producers-and-How-to-Avoid-Them ), but this was the first time I met everyone in person.
The Stage32 crew is efficiency and organization personified — just as every good producer should be. And my fellow lecturers, in addition to being a wealth of information, were some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. A tremendously big shout out to Nneka Luke, the Film Commissioner of Trinidad & Tobago for bringing us down and introducing us to the talented artists of T&T.
For anyone reading this thinking of shooting in T&T, please do! It’s only 4 ½ hours away from New York and boasts tropical scenery, cityscapes, jungles, waterfalls, and almost every environment one could hope for.
