SUBHYSTERIA'S TEASER IS ON!

Well I know I've been lax about writing here, but again that's what happen when a filmmaker decides to start a blog, when he's in production is a little intermittent, but believe me I'm learning so much that I can't wait to share all the experiences with you guys.

For now I want to invite you to watch the teaser of my next feature film, if you like what you see, you can favorite it, rate it, comment on it, that would help us to get some honors on youtube, like #32 Most Viewed video on Film & Animation category, and that would allow us to get featured, driving more people to our teaser and ultimately to our movie.

PACK YOUR BAGS! tripfilms.com


Over a month ago, right before I started the crazyness with subHysteria, I met with Jamay Liu and Tony Cheng from Tripfilms.

The meeting took place in their unique office located in the east village: "Gramstand Cafe", a cute little place with full WiFi internet connection.  It allows the six people team from Tripfilms to use their place as headquarters.

Tripfilms is... I’ve to stop here, only to preface that something so avant-garde that does not have real competition is difficult yet easy to explain.  Trip Films is the ultimate video reference for the out of ordinary tourist.  For that person that is not only interested in the mainstream landmarks, but is also eager to extend their experience to those hidden and underrated places that are out of the flyers’ kiosk in every city hotel. They start every video with a "Travel Quote", no wonder their tagline is Travel Inspired, it couldn’t be better. I am one of those travelers that really enjoys to live my adventure as a local, and right now, I’ve to say, thanks to Tripfilms, it is really simple. The best thing is that you can find all the mainstream attractions and landmarks without leaving the site, also.

At this point you’re maybe asking yourself “Ok, nice. What this has to do with guerrilla filmmaking? Let me show you an excerpt of how they get their videos!
