“The #SamsungTwitterParty is back! Get ready to party the night away come 19th December at Zone 7 with fellow tweeps. Entrance is 15,000shs. Call 0775439894 for details. Great music and drinks.”

CONGRATULATIONS! LET US DIVE INTO THE MOVIE PROJECT. WHAT IS THE MOVIE SCRIPT ABOUT?

Hello, by name I’m called Nsamba George Stanley. I’m a filmmaker and mentor, CEO Nes Motion Media and founder The Ghetto Film Project.

The film script THE DRUG DRAG is a movie about a teenager living in the ghetto associating with a bad peer group doing drugs and theft in the night. What makes him different is that he has a dream of being a poet but being of a poor background, he can’t find a way out of this out clean and so he hustles his way through a gang of robbers. All changes the day his best friend is shot dead during a robbery and he can’t let his death go free.

Days after he commits his first murder in revenge, he learns that his girlfriend is pregnant and realizes he has to change the life he is living. He pursues a career in writing with the little savings he made and one day lands his dream launching a book and that’s the day he gets arrested for the murder he committed 2 years ago and convicted to life in prison leaving behind a 2 year old son and a wife.

Briefly that’s the story I submitted and landed me the M-net deal out of over 30,000 scripts that were submitted in June this year. I got to know about the competition from Moses Serugo’s blog . I’m humbled.

YOUR PASSION IS TAKING YOU PLACES, TOAST TO THAT! WILL IT HAVE A UGANDAN CAST?

Thanks buddy.

I’m yet to discuss that with the multi choice team that I’m meeting on Thursday but for what I know is that they have given me a choice to choose the protagonist (main actor), his bestfriend and the antagonist( the rival gang leader) all who are Ugandan. We shall be discussing the rest including location which is most likely to be Uganda.

WOW! WHAT INSPIRED THE STORY?

Actually the story is my story.
Its about my experience as a teen doing drugs and associating with bad groups of which out of the 9 guys we were, only 4 of us are alive,the rest died due to mob justice.

So I sat down and imagined where I would have ended up today if I had not left that gang life in my early teen life and the imagination is the movie.

YOU STUDIED FILM AND CINEMATOGRAPHY YET UGANDANS STRIVE TO BE LAWYERS, ENGINEERS, DOCTORS AND MANAGERS. WHERE DO YOU DERIVE THAT PASSION?

Funny, I composed my first movie called “Blue Table” when I was just six, my mum Aryenyo Vicky and other family members would be my witnesses. So since I was a child I wanted to either be a plumber, filmmaker, wr­iter, painter/artist or journalist.

When I join bad gangs in Naguru I lost all my dreams and wanted to be a rapper. In my form 4 when trying to fight my drug addiction, I found myself writing more to relieve me of the guilt, stress and keep me off the thought of drugs and that’s when I decided I wanted to tell my stories on screen some day.

In my second year at MUK last year, doing a bachelors in Industrial Art, I decided to drop out and chase my dream in film. I had started my cinematography and editing practice in my form 6 vac so I needed to leave school and concentrate on building my dream.

When I dropped out, its around that time I got a scholarship in film with Fullsail University in Winterpark, Florida but never took it due to some problems here and there but regardless I still kept going.

WOW!! WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THE YOUTH OUT THERE?

You can be anything and anyone you dreamt of being despite your current situation only if you focus, work hard and believe in who you are. I once was a street kid, today I’m an award winning film-maker. Trust in God!

DO YOU THINK THE VIRAL UCU SEX TAPE PROVED THAT UGANDANS ARE YEARNING LOCAL MOVIE ENTERTAINMENT?

As a film maker, I look at the artistic impression and expression through the lens. The fact that the sextape went viral showed how a little romance in a movie could take it places. There is lots of worse porn on net, why did that sextape go viral? Its because it was Ugandan. I believe its time Ugandan film makers incorporate scenes such as romance and kissing in their movies and stop doing drama.

QUICK FIRE:

Would You Allow Your Lover Act In A Sexual Movie Scene, Kissing And Caressing. Yes Or No?

Absolutely NO, cant have my lover do an X rated scene in a movie(but why would I love an actress? Lol)

“Where the mind goes,the body follows” – Joyce Meyer

FAVOURITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME?

Wow that’s a hard one, favorite movie will be Blank Cheque but my short film will be Struck and African movie will be Viva Riva.

According to sources Bebe Cool decided to call off his usual Easter proggie as a way of identifying with someone he mentored in the music industry.

“Bebe Cool doesn’t want unfair competition. He wants to hold shows again after Bobi Wine has been allowed to resume his concerts. So he decided not to have an Easter Monday in Kiwatule,” says a source.
