Word of things moving forwards with the forthcoming film "Northern Soul"
The Manchester Evening news just featured in its business section an article titled
"The film-maker who wants to strike a note with Northern Soul fans"
Basically after the first read it seems the article informs of a opportunity for investors to play a part in supporting this project via an investment scheme....
The below clip gives a basic idea, but seems may be best to view the rest of the article for the full score...
"Northern Soul will be financed via an Enterprise Investment Scheme set up by Nyman Libson Paul Accountants. Interest in the film is already huge, with massive radio and international coverage, and Constantine believes the investment opportunity is an exciting and lucrative one. "The film will go into production this summer and has a planned cinema release for 2013," says Constantine. "We're in the final stages of financing and need investors. Investors will have the opportunity to visit the set and there are opportunities to participate as supporting cast members on a filming day. Then there's the social events such as gala screenings where they can meet cast members.""
"We've got roughly half the budget to date," she says. "We're looking to raise a further £300,000 and then we, as a company, will issue reports to each shareholder informing them of the film's progress and its financial position."

Also featured on the Northern Soul web site is the news that North West singer Lisa Stansfield will be involved
"Singer Lisa Stansfield is to make a return to the limelight on home turf - starring in a new movie about the Northern Soul scene. Lisa, from Rochdale, shot to fame in the 80s with her worldwide hit All Around The World and she continued to dominate the charts in the 90s. But in recent years she's moved away from the music world and concentrated on acting roles. Now, the 45-year-old is set to star in the new movie about two northern lads whose lives are changed forever by the Northern Soul music scene in the 70s. She will play the mum of one of the lads, while actor Christian McKay will play her husband"
