Volunteering along side TJ (Termaine Jenkins), Austin Newman is a local filmmaker who is making a push to see more film projects in the Tampa Bay area. This past month the very active film enthusiast has been on an adventure in New York.
Up until now Austin and TJ have been the main volunteer admins setting up Tampa Film Network as a community organization, and hope to organize film productions. Upon returning Austin will offer a screening of his feature length film MMXII at Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival. There is also hope that he will spearhead a short film project for TFN. Volunteer Admin TJ announced 1 month earlier that he was building the infrastructure for TFN to start making short films using the film community's combined resources.
