THE FILM PUNKS failed to film their final scene for a second week in a row. Lead actress absent from set.
In an unfortunate reversal of luck THE FILM PUNKS, the local filmmaking club hired by Tampa Film Network to shoot TFN's first short film "Good Friends", has failed to film the final scene of the film for a second week in a row. The first attempt was foiled by severe weather, and the second attempt ruined by a no-show from the lead actress of the film. Serving as the official liaison between TFN and The Film Punks, Termaine Jenkins all but guaranteed completion of the project from the very start by whatever means required. But with The Film Punks own leading actress not showing up, TFN's admin team raised eyebrows and questions about Termaine's ability to see the project through.
Tampa Film Network offered to 'help' by having its own nearly formed crew take on the responsibility of filming the final scene, however the filmming club refused to hand over control of the project, assuring the admin board that they would soon finish filming on their own power.
The power dynamic in this collaboration is an interesting one. Normally Tampa Film Network playing the typical role of "the studio" or client would have total control and would reserve the right to force a halt to the project and try putting someone else in charge from their growing community roster, however, in this case, The Film Punks as a "collaborative partner" hold nearly all the cards of power in the relationship. The filmmaking club provided the Crew, and half of the Cast, and they are in possession of all the footage that has been shot, all of which is currently stored at their club house. The project liaison Termaine Jenkins is a very important part of Tampa Film Network's admin team, and is the architect of much of both organization's infrastructure, so there is not likely to be a dispute, but but he has always been a member of The Film Punks and plays an equally important role for them as well.
"There will be no dispute. Both sides agreed to very specific conditions. I will do what was agreed for both parties, nothing more and nothing less." Termaine Jenkins
