Do you remember your first play you ever had a role in. I do – I played a wife of guy who had a dentist appointment who was sitting in the dentist chair waiting to have dental treatment. However, every now and again the dentist would come out looking for things like drills and hammers which were supposed to be used – but not on the mouth. However, my lines were few and I can only just remember the ones I could remember on the stage at the time “oh dear, what is happening to my husband – what are they doing to him- as I said I could not remember my lines – the prompter kept prodding me, I just could not remember them. Although at home I was doing well with them. Terrified I was on stage and got stage fright. I did go on to play in the Sinner man – based on Pilgrims Progress in Brazil as slough on the ground moving around like a worm dressed in hessian and brown material strips sewn on to represent the mud and slim.
Do you remember your first play? Can you remember how you felt for the first time facing an audience or even family members when were called upon to sing a carol or favourite song of yours because your mother thought it would be nice for her guests as she thought you sang sweetly and that it would be good for you. I remember that very well and was terrified – closed my eyes and just sang. I am dreaming of white Christmas and Silent Night. I do enjoy singing although don’t do much of it at the moment. I even enjoy reading- I love watching plays, films and dramas.
I also like Scifi, and enjoy films like Dune – I also read the books which were very entertaining.
The point I guess I am trying to make here is that people who watch in films and theatre started out in the same way as most of us, however they pursued their dream overcame their shyness – awkwardness in front of an audience to give us a great deal of entertainment and for that we are glad of their skills.
Their ability to learn and memorise line after line and be in character for whatever role they partake takes patience and endurance. We do not always fully appreciate their skills and talent. We see the end result but there has been many hours of anxious moments of waking early, going to rehearsal, reading lines, going for auditions in the hope of a slot in play or movie, or even a tv drama.
Can you imagine that waking up early in the morning to go be someone else for the benefit of others, to bring to life something that someone else has taken the time to write, whether it be a book of an adventure story, or a real life story, or even a fantasy. People who are able to put words onto paper that make people believe a story and make it a joy to watch are very talented too.
Then there are the script writers who interpret the story for screen or to be played on the stages, which takes some undertaking.
The people who are involved with the lighting and stages, decorations and furnishings again it takes time and talent to put them all together.
What about the costume makers who design dresses and outfits to fit a particular drama, film! Again these people all have skills and talents which others do not have and we sometimes forget that these are all in the background of the final result we see on the stage and films.
The end result has had to be brought about by people considering the worth of showing such a piece of art. For just like a painting, without the imagination or the backing of people who believe in their project it would not even be brought to life.
People who just like you and me who have chosen to be Entertainers either on Stage or Film or both in a lot of cases they also need to be paid their due for the time and energy they put into the project
Can you imagine yourself getting up and going to work every morning and then not get paid for doing something you loved. Funnily enough people think that entertainers possibly do not need to be paid for their time and energy giving us pleasure and fun and sometimes disturbing stories brought to life by their hands.
Think of Films like Ben Hur and Charleston Heston, Spartacus – Kirk Douglas, to name a couple, were would those films be if someone had not had the foresight to invest and spread the word of the films.
Do you think that someone would have heard of any of the actors and actresses today if people had not written stories for them to be put into films and if the actors and actresses had decided that they would like to play the parts we would have such a diverse movie industry that we have to day.
With Sci-fi, Horror, Romance, Action, War, Fantasy such as Avatar which is an amazing film with so much of the film was a combination of CGI.
Where would all the films we see today without people putting their hands in their pockets because they thought that the idea of sharing stories with others is possible.
Would you like to learn more on how you could also be part of the Entertainment Business whether by sharing your talent or your wealth so that other may also have the pleasure of watching some thing spectacularly made.

I believe he could offer you are really interesting investment opportunity if you are interested in the movies; depending on your own particular genre there is much to choose from. Exciting times ahead and I consider it to be a sound investment.
Evolutionary Films is currently offering shares under the UK Government backed Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and has HMRC advance assurance that it qualifies
The Evolutionary Films EIS is not tied to just one film. Instead, it is envisaged that a portfolio of films will be produced and/or sold over the course of three years thereby giving investors exposure to a selection of films at a variety of stages of development, production and completion.
We have a guaranteed route to market. Most independent films have no distribution in place, and often rely on sales agents (who are not accountable back to the original investors) to sell the rights territory by territory around the world. We are our own international sales agent and we have a JV arrangement in place with an established UK distributor to ensure that if no companies offer a sensible advance against our titles, we can guarantee our own route to market.
By putting in place the infrastructure to sell our own films internationally, we have also put in place the opportunity to sell third party titles as international sales agent on a commission basis. This means that we can licence quality, commercial films to sell at market with virtually no overheads and all of the commission we receive on sales is channelled back into Evolutionary Films as income.
When you connect with Mr Mohammed Ali, please do me the favour of telling him where you heard about this – I am Sue Caroline Benson and I help promote Evolutionary Films.
