Don’t Wait for Hollywood to Be Discovered Make Your Claim to Fame Now!

This is one of the most thrilling eras for creative artists and viewers, alike. Countless opportunities are opening within non-traditional and emerging new media outlets, and we’re witnessing an explosive growth in the establishment of independent production companies, cable stations and film and music studios. Years ago, the likelihood of being discovered outside of Hollywood or Broadway was very slim. Of course, even within the two 'glamour capitals' the atmosphere was always fiercely competitive. Now, talented artists have numerous options, when it comes to being discovered, and thankfully, the field of opportunity grows wider every day. All of us are benefiting from this new-age approach to stardom, and it’s seen in the popularity of reality shows and our growing passion for dance and other talent competitions. We’re treated to a broad and diverse menu of talented performers whose gifts enrich our lives in countless ways. Yes, we’re being spoiled, and it’s only the beginning!

When I founded RisingStar31 Productions, it was created to continue the work I began with the late Altovise Davis. She was married for twenty years to the famous Rat Pack star, Sammy Davis, Jr., who’d sacrificed his education to begin performing when he was only four years old. He always regretted this, and wanted to his wife to reach out to kids and urge them to get their education. We started creating screenplays to deliver entertaining and educational messages. Being very spiritual, I also wanted to share a message about miracles. This season, after several setbacks, including Altovise’s death, I’m moving forward with plans to produce our first film, A Detour to Mexico.

It’s a unique project, because ‘audience participation’ begins very early. We’re expanding the open audition process to include a new twist. RisingStar31 Productions has launched two videotaped talent competitions in which the winners are eligible for cash prizes and roles in the film. It offers actors and musicians a new way to be discovered. During the competition, all of the competing performers will have an opportunity to be showcased and voted on. It’s thrilling to be able to discover new talent and help emerging stars find their way to the ‘silver screen.’

A Detour to Mexico is a musical that we hope will inspire talented new artists, both young and old, to compose and perform original music arrangements that are based on the story. At the same time, we’re looking for powerful actors to take various scenes from the screenplay and bring the characters to life.

If successful, we hope that A Detour to Mexico will be a model for other innovative projects. It’s exciting because the public can be engaged in creative collaborations that bring numerous people together (new artists, viewers and producers) and complete a wide spectrum of film projects. It will also confirm one important fact. With all the amazing talent that’s out there, we don’t have to wait for Hollywood to give us the ‘green light.’ Together, we can bring a story and its wonderful characters to life.
