Our CEO  Emem Isong gets set for the release of her directorial debut, the romantic thriller tiled ‘Champagne’. Always one to push the envelope, she explores the concept of an open marriage between a young couple Tare Hopewell (played by Alex Ekubo) and his young wife Champagne (Rose Zimu).  

Synopsis: The couple  date other unsuspecting people mainly for money and perks until they bite off more than they can chew when they meet the enigmatic Mr. Douglas (expertly played by Majid Michel). Suddenly this seemingly harmless game of ‘hit & run’ turns into a deadly game of high stakes where the winner takes  all. This movie marks the directorial debut of Emem Isong who also produced the work.

  1. Greetings Emem,
    I have searched your blog as well as social media channels for an email address or phone number with which to contact you.

    I am Osarumen "SkweiRd" Osamuyi, Creative Honcho at Alphabeat Group, a burgeoning sound design firm with interests in film score composition, sound design and other audio technology related endeavors.

    I would like to compose the score for some of your future masterpieces, and, in my own way, add value to your projects. My sound has been described by previous clients as "edgy" and "avant-garde", as I pride myself in bringing to light, the underlying themes in any piece of visual art I'm given the chance to interpret.

    I trust that you will have to preview my work, before taking any decisions, and as such, here's a link to a short fashion film I scored a few months ago:

    If you would like to hear more samples of my work, or would like to engage in a discussion, leading possibly to a collaboration, please email me at: skweird@alphabeatgroup.com

    I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time.
