emily blunt report
Review.com has been steadfast in keeping you up on TriggerStreet.com's
launch. With good reason. They have perfected the formula for
online film, screenplay and festival submissions. It wasn't
easy to get it all done and the delays of their launch necessary
to tweak the site ultimately for YOU. I can not wait to see
the TriggerStreet.com film discoveries. The people involved
truly love the medium and this is their gift back. Our gift
is that these fellows even bothered.
having been said. What's the best remedy for exhaustive efforts?
Right! A big classy party. And these guys know how to host a
party. Monday night at the hoity toity Hudson Hotel deep in
the whimsical Library Bar the TriggerStreet.com crew relaxed
a little, unbuttoned their suit shirts and met with well wishers
who appreciated the hard work behind the hoopla.
TriggerStreet.com president and uber cutey DANA BRUNETTI bounced
from martini sipper to martini sipper chatting about their mission;
basically to nurture unknown talents and give a voice to folks
who have no "connections." Co- founder of TriggerStreet.com
and the reigning king of charm and wit, KEVIN
SPACEY told me (as he sipped a long neck brewski from sponsor
Budweiser) they had 2200 people log in the first 24 hours alone!
ROSS PARTRIDGE, dashing purr usual, agreed and said the
rush of screenwriters and film makers ready to join in actually
crashed their server! The party was dotted with celebrities;
SAM ROCKWELL, that guy from the Sopranos, JAMES GANDOLFINI,
CAROLINE RHEA - who is freakin' hysterical, DENIS LEARY smoking
away, and who knows who else was lurking around. I had way too
many martinis; though I paced myself with diet cokes so I never
actually fell down. I was even coherent enough to cab over to
the after party at swanky (and tiny) Bungalow 8. I'd found a
beau - actually a guy blatantly on the move in more ways than
one - so my party guest MICHELE DEYOUNG and I hid upstairs with
the "in crowd" till he dispersed and drank even more.
kids, did you know you shouldn't mix martinis with champagne?
Okay if you must be sure and hold the flute with your pinky
up no matter how whacked you are so you give the optical illusion
of still being a lady. The big meany bouncer atop was making
bets if I'd fall down the stairs as I left (sweet huh?) -I didn't
and wouldn't - wow, what a dickhead.
The next day as I met with my publicist about my own CircusofComedy.com
launch extravaganza. We dined and plotted as my head had it's
own samba rhythm pulsing wildly throughout. But when you're
in NYC for this short a visit who' got time for a pesky hang
over? Not me.
to the boyz. TriggerStreet.com

company is a branch of Kevin
Spacey and Bernie Morris' TriggerStreet
Brunetti and Ross Partridge have worked long and
hard to get this ball in play. The thought being the first time
and second time lower end film makers helped Spacey become Spacey.
As he put it he's just , "sending the elevator back down."
Many films like Rodger Dodger or My Big Fat Greek Wedding have
these glorious hardship stories behind them. That's all well
and great, but wouldn't you rather see more of this caliber
of film find it's way to market then hear the urban legends
behind that "one" great film getting made? Me too.
TriggerStreet.com should help do just that! Spacey has some
pretty smart ideas for where he wants TriggerStreet.com to be
in five years. And I tell you what, knowing this guy's drive
and the team with him, they'll be a standard mechanism in the
film making process by then. He need'nt worry his handsome manly
man head over it. BRAVO
to the site and sign up, peruse, upload - you
don't wanna miss this!
