Tropic Pictures makes films with mythic emphasis, poetic language, and sharp humor.


Richard Bailey: Producer / Writer / Director / Camera / Editor


Richard grew up on fifty-two acres in East Texas. Like many creative Texans, he found his way to Austin, where he studied film at The University of Texas. Later, he earned a M.A. degree in Literature from The University of Texas at Dallas.


His films have shown at Alchemy Film & Moving Image, Anthology Film Archives, AVIFF Cannes, Berlin Liberi, Black Maria, Blow-Up (Chicago International Art House), Dallas VideoFest, Proyector International, SENE, SXSW, and many other festivals.  He has a film featured in Vol. 36 of the Journal of Short Film, a peer-reviewed journal in DVD form. 

His poems have appeared in several journals, including The Madison Review, Mudfish, Quiddity, and Whiskey Island Magazine.
