First there was this…
… and in a flash, it was all gone.
I heard a lot of grumbling and etc on how Trinidad James’ career was now over…, but in this modern age, my thoughts were, man, I’d love to be in his position.
In a day in age where a DIY youtube tutorial can place you on the path to become a passable/professional graphic designer, videographer, photographer, filmmaker, and pro-grade SELF digital distribution… you name it, you can do it.
Trinidad James has a audience reach of at least 100,000. Imagine a professional self-run team that connects with the evolution and continued push of the style he’s developed, professional graphic design, professional videos, and presentation… contact with the mags and radio stations… kickstarter/indiegogo and connect with an up-n-coming short film director… the possibilities are virtually endless…
He could have the potential, if he had the correct business person, to take this “opportunity and advance”; I could only imagine where he could go.
Heck, I feel like I could write a dope project for him. I think these show I have a basic idea of the film-making process.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not calling him a Kendrick, but he has an act that can keep pushing and do some interesting things with… the nightclub circuit is hurting a little and touring is the way to go. Who wouldn’t want to see him in a mini “Boondocks” type of cartoon and go through some little caper, Something Afro Dynamite style.
I guess, indirectly i’m throwing some tips out there for he and other independent artist.
Honestly, the sky’s the limit, and if you really want to make something happen, it can, it’s all about where you’re looking and how you intend to get there. Like, when you’re spending money on $180 worth of weed, maybe you can pinch that and invest that money into some new lenses or building a production house. Think five years, not for the moment.
This is the information age, what you need, is out there for free, and the elite grade of that info is available with a little hard work.
Speaking of hard work, MTV recently caught up with Trinidad, check it out here.
