“The “Hollywood East” movement isn’t exclusive to New York City’s five boroughs.
Over in Saratoga Springs, filmmaker and Skidmore College screenwriting professor Nicole Coady has launched a new production company called Trident Fantasy Films.
Coady, whose film career spans more than 25 years, has had screenplays produced by big name companies, including New Line Cinema (one of the many properties now owned by AT&T) and 20th Century Fox (NASDAQ: FOX).
