You want to know about the man behind the madness? Alrighty then!
My name is Alexander Michael Trapp. I was born In December of 1985 in Los Angeles, California. I didn’t have the easiest time growing up (who does, really?) but between all of the trouble, I was able to watch a good deal of movies and television shows that inspired my imagination. When I was 14 I discovered that writing screenplays could be a paying career so I began to hone my writing skills anyway I could, mainly by reading other screenplays and trying to copy their format and style.
When I began to work at the age of 18, I bought myself The Screenwriter’s Bible by David Trottier and finally felt I could write screenplays with a reasonable degree of professionalism. After entering contests and making use of other services, I became frustrated with how difficult it was to break into Hollywood through just showing off my writing ability. I always wanted to make movies and it was my hope that I could write and sell a screenplay so I could use the money from that to fund my first film. When that did not happen, I turned to GoAnimate to begin creating stories I always wanted to tell.
I learned an important lesson in my time of creating stories. Money and making money is not as important as being able to express your creativity. If you do intend to enter the entertainment industry, don’t do it with the intent of becoming rich or famous. Do it because you genuinely love telling stories and because you have the desire to share your stories with the rest of the world. Everything else is secondary.
Enjoy the madness that is It’s A Trapp! Productions! Let’s go on a journey!
