Tropium Nitrate is a pre-production team that specializes in screenwriting, copy-editing, storyboarding, producing and logistics.


We began as a gang of movie buffs and genre geeks who had very little money and way too much time on our hands. Eventually our dissatisfaction with popular culture drove us to create. Behold the horror such privilege hath wrought.  


The name of the company itself is derived from a 2008 college paper written by Andrew Zane.  The subject of the paper concerned the idea of tropes or themes (hence 'tropium'). 


Now, a 'nitrate' is just a polyatomic ion with a lot of different uses and a large Wikipedia page so we'll be the first to admit that we just thought it sounded cool. It's also one of the components of Ammonium Nitrate which is commonly found in explosives. 


As a compound, these two elements convey exactly what we're all about: risky chemistry. Some people believe in living dangerously. We want to write dangerously. We want to provoke, inspire and Intrigue. If we're good at what we do, we hope you want the same thing.
