I achieved world fame as a chart topping musician and entrepreneur. But I am fascinated with the new opportunities opened up by the latest digital film-making technologies. For the first time, it is possible for someone like myself to tell a story that is close to my heart, without needing to seek funding or distribution from the film industry. Many stories like mine will begin to unfold as artists learn to express themselves in this newly accessible medium. The results may be surprising. As a first-time filmmaker, I shot and edited this film entirely myself using affordable consumer cameras, and also wrote and performed the narration and musical score.
