Adam Sigal at the Gasparilla Film Festival The Gasparilla Film Festival ends Sunday, but when the lights go out and the projector stops, a Clearwater film writer hopes his career will take off in Hollywood. "The film making process was very long," said film writer Adam Sigal. Twenty-five-year-old Sigal left for Hollywood just after graduating from Clearwater High School. Watch this interview here.
He will remember the name of his film, "Daydreamer," blinking in big red lights at the Gasparilla Film Festival. Yeah, it's a dream," Sigal said. "I don't want to say it's a daydream because I would like for it to be happening more often."

The festival is a chance to get someone to buy his first-ever feature film. It does a couple things," Sigal said. "It gets my name out there to some extent. I meet a lot of people who are in the industry: investors, producers and directors and all that kind of stuff. It's kind of a promotional thing for me."
