Having been moderately successful in marketing other businesses over the years I am now in a new location, that happens to be in the middle of the caribbean, and finding it difficult to market my creative media abilities to the business owners. True, I'm in an area where time and decisions tend to run slowly; laid back, but I would welcome input on tips to increase my presence here.

I've produce some projects for which I was paid and some projects in which I have 'donated' my services to non-profits in hopes of spreading the W.O.M. among the potential client base. I've handed out numerous cards, demo reels and made many contacts with businesses.

My main interest is in commercial production, short documentaries and promotions which would help generate tourism to the island. Although weddings seem to be the largest target for media I view such projects on par with 'herding cats' for compensation. I've produced several in the past and would rather try scuba diving without a tank.

Thanks for your time and thoughts.
