Excited the book & Movie
Welcome to the Homepage of Excited the Book and the Movie
Of-course, by then I didn’t have any answers to those questions. After my short music career, with the strong desire to get answers to these questions I had to change education path, so I jumped in to PR and communication. With the contacts I had made in the entertainment industry, I quickly converted in to Talent manager, Talk show host and my passion for writing even got me writing jobs, i started creating unscripted television shows for Networks.
For me the movie industry has always been complementary to the music industry, that is why soon enough I found myself acting as film agent for many movie production companies, I later co-organize the First black film festival in Europe and secured a speaking engagement at the African Union 50th Anniversary celebration where i talked about the power entertainment could have in the growth of nation’s economy. I think all these accomplishments plus me becoming one of the founding partners at Elite Entertainment comforted my choice to give back by preparing through this book, a content that will help many who may need an extra push or who would just want to stay true to themselves while making a career in entertainment.
Our original aim was to write a memoire, many would ask me the question ; why write a memoire at your young age? well we reasoned that my experience and achievements could inspired and empower many others. At just 27years of age, I have torched most of the segments of the entertainment industry, documenting that was an obvious consequence.
Our initial plan quickly changed as soon as we got in to the writing process. We realized that most of the contents i related came from either sad experiences of when I was struggling to make it as an artist, or experiences related to me by my clients, we all had one thing in common ; The desire to shine in the music business no matter what.
Realizing I couldn’t disclose their names on my memoire because of sensitive information they shared with me, we decided to create this character that I called “Chrislan Treasure”
If you ask me What Chrislan Treasure represents in this contemporary story i will respond to you by saying ; He represents all those artists out there who are trying so hard to make a living from the music industry, He represents those freshly signed artists who are still very naïve, he represents those artists who are constantly being stocked and persecuted by the media, he represents those artists who are tired of living a fake life imposed to them by their labels, he represents those artists who want to stay true to their feelings and love who they want.
Many artists in service today live all these things but never talk about it because they don’t want to seem professionally incorrect, they don’t know how their fanbase, their label or the media will take it, in few words “they are scared of the unknown”, so they prefer to keep it to themselves and suffer in a gold prison, and in most cases they end-up; in drugs, depression or face early death.
Excited is also an educational tool for people who aim at making a career in this dark but beautiful industry…The entertainment industry.
