SAMUELL BENTA

 
"Take a leap of faith and... watch MIRACLES happen!"

In the old days, actors went to auditions, waited for a phone to ring and saw if they got the part. That's the only perspective that actors and agents can see because they don't know what happens beyond that point. You want to build a following, a fan base, an audience you can guarantee is going to want to tune in to you! But to do that you need to start somewhere and discover more about who you are. A new awareness must be raised, and with the rise of Netflix and Amazon, more content is being created demanding more for actors to step up in business!


This book is for empowering people and showing them that there is more POWER in them than they know, touching on racial bias and stereotyping within the entertainment industry following Samuell Benta's courageous and scary journey from not attending drama or film school, to being a web sensation and hitting the TV market. He explains why actors need to be continuously innovative to survive. What are you doing other than waiting on a phone to ring? 99% of the actors out there are 'waiting' for that big break, but this is 20th century 'thinking'.

 

You CREATE your own BREAK by taking charge and driving down the road less travelled.

 

New Book!
WELCOME TO THE 21st CENTURY.

Testimonials

"I have known of Samuell for 5 or 6 years now, and know him personally for over 3 years. He came to my attention when I came across his webisodes series, 'All About The McKenzies', and I recognised he was an outstanding example of the next generation of content makers being enabled by Youtube.
When I made contact with Samuell he struck me as an ambitious and talented creative, with skills ranging from writing to directing and acting, and with a voracious appetite for work and self development.

I then worked with Samuell when ITV2 offered Sugar Films a slot in their 'Fresh' season for new talent, and commissioned Samuell to do a 30 minute pilot episode of the McKenzies for ITV2. Here I got to see Samuell's skills close up; working with a budget about 40% of the usual tariff he wrote a new script, engaged a good script editor, cast, produced and directed the pilot. He was well organised, committed, open to feedback and keen to learn. He has vision, inlcuding adding new elements like animation, and choreographing a song and dance performance opening title sequence. He was in control on location and managed the post production process well. 

He has many skills yet remains he's hungry to learn and he has a real appetite for TV. I can't recommend him highly enough for consideration."

MD of Sugar Films

"I worked with Samuell on the ITV2 pilot of his internet comedy All About the McKenzies. He impressed me enormously with his work ethic and ability to multitask. He is hard-working, conscientious and impressive, and responded brilliantly to the pressures of writing, producing and directing a scripted comedy pilot on an extremely tight budget and schedule. In short, Samuell delivers."

"Samuell made his first 5 minute film for CBBC. He is really passionate and throws himself into his project. He built a great rapport with the child and her mother too which is so important when working with children."

"Samuell is an incredibly talented writer, performer and director. He wrote a half hour sitcom for ITV2, directed it and starred in it. He is hard-working and determined and I will not be a bit surprised when he achieves even greater things."
