HBM: Tell us about your business trip. How did you get into the entertainment industry?
Double room: “I grew up in the entertainment industry. Starting with music, I made Unicorn records and started SST Records as the world's first punk and new wave record company. At Unicorn, we created the first videos for MTV that inspired me to step into the audiovisual world of film and television. I also started writing, and I wrote and directed a number of short films, and then I wrote, directed, co-produced and composed the score for my first feature film, Footsteps. "
HBM: What tips do you have for others who want to get into the entertainment industry?
DR: "Getting into the entertainment business is all about passion. When you are forced to tell stories either through music or film. The best tip I can give anyone is to sharpen your inner tools as a storyteller. Either by telling a story through music, writing, or visually. It's a collaborative art, so listening to contributions is important. You learn more from your mistakes than from your successes. The key is to keep evolving. Be your best critic. "
HBM: How do you maintain a healthy work-life balance? What tips can you share?
Double room: "I love to get lost in the stories I deal with. There is nothing more satisfying than living vicariously through characters you create or develop. Your stories become an alternate life that you experience. That Dreaming and telling stories helps me to reconcile my life and increases my interest in real stories that are constantly occurring around me. I also find solutions through my dreams and meditations. "
HBM: What was one of the greatest challenges you overcame to be where you are today?
Double room: "One of the greatest challenges I've faced is making the impossible possible. Having faced difficult challenges, most of all I had to rise above the NO NOs to find a positive way to achieve goals Whether it was starting a record company, composing and recording new albums, writing and publishing a book, making a film, or starting a television network, it all fell into the “impossible dream” category "I've always managed to persevere and never take" NO "as an answer."
HBM: Where do you hope to see Cinémoi TV in three years?
Double room: “In three years' time, Cinémoi will be global, the most stylish and quality-oriented television station in the world. A home for the greatest designers, filmmakers and artists in the world. A window to a colorful world of storytelling, cultural tourism and artistic endeavors that can spark the imagination of our global community. "
HBM: What other projects are you working on?
Double room: “CineMoiWorld – A parallel world that offers a digital platform for entertainment, e-commerce, museums and cultural tourism as well as virtual tourism to the most exotic travel destinations in the world. A virtual world without borders, without racial differences, in which we can all connect, mix and feel a sense of real belonging. "
