GBI -Emerald Military VETERAN project will produce Thought provoking shows to stimulate, educate and inform our youth, our elders, our communities and nation. The Focus will be on “Building the Corporation of the Future” using the thinking of Military Veterans and our fore fathers with today’s new tools and technology to create a better future for families, community and our nation.

Military Veterans will be cast to apprentice with Military Brass and other professionals to role play in a reality TV show/docu-drama/webisode about how to change our community and create jobs..( job creation engine.)

They will Compete for apprenticeship slots and a chance to learn wealth creation and become a member-owner of the Lou Myers Scenario Motion Picture Institute/Theatre in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Business professionals, Professional Athletes, Elders, Parents, teachers and Friends are encouraged.


Consumption Orientation  communities have to be educated and entertained at the same time in order to acquire new life skills. The GBI Motion Picture Scenario Film will accommodate this cultural predisposition by operating as a learning cooperative within the environment and mores of the disadvantaged.  In addition it will assist in directing and coordinating the talents of individuals and youth with the potential to be teachers, vendors, patrons and voices within the cooperative system. 

The initial funds will be used to create a model education and training program known as the “Teach the Teacher to Teach the Youth” program, as well as assist in the creation of a series of modeled scenarios about the collective better future of disadvantaged communities in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia and the Americas. Great things lie ahead for this timely and dynamic partnership. Intelligent professionals coming together to cooperate to compete in the 21st century.
