Welcome to LID OFF THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT.

 

I am excited to start ACT TWO for me  in creating and performing. I have always been a Showman, now music is added to that repertoire! What an adventure life is...

I haven't completely sorted all the jigsaw pieces yet - however - in 'imperfection' we risk, step and music, drama and comedy will follow... Enjoy!

Founder

Nicky Slater

Name, Title

RIGHT?

This process of starting out is akin to battling through a jungle. Tortuous, ever developing, surprising, breath-taking, scary - time consuming. I've always been aiming to build a multi brand epic Entertainment Factory - trouble is it's from one man! 

 

As Creative Director - in the midst of twenty years work - and a developing competence and vision - it's a challenge! How to simplify, to create alignment, a cohesive structur, gain resource?

To be A Prodigious Producer of Brilliant Profitable Entertainment always my goal.

Why? Because I am prodigious. Brands, music, writing, video, images. So to date - doh - nothing gets published... 

And no one will rescue you so get on - be Producer/Artist - wear two hats...

Why say this? It's about fear, perfectionism, grand vision and finding 'step by step' challenging. It's about the tension of - wanting to get things out in the world and not having them disappear in the sea of the internet through lack of awareness...

WRONG?

So maybe  it's too many offerings here? A single brand lead is easier to manage and understand.  I know, I know...  I know.

Yet lots of individual brands present so much more to manage technically. I've tried it. Social Media across everything...  Your life is gone - admin eats time and energy... and money.

 

So - LID OFF THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT-  lidoffthebox.com - is Basecamp. It's our Selfridges, Hudson Bay,  LMVH. A Brand Department store. It is also my heart and soul for all the work presented.

Lid Off THe Box is about taking the lid off the box of 'my life;  it's about stepping out uncertain, to risk, look a fool and fly.

 

LID OFF THE BOX has integrity and validity as a base for all the work. But independent brands have more clarity alone. So I've been looking at how multiple brands can be managed.

So let's take the LID OFF THE BOX and MAKE CRAZY WORK.

 

This is not perfection...  But hopefully it's quality, fun and blow's the doors off fear.

NEWTON

Newton's Third Law. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

 

Quid pro quo - action begets reaction.

Action - release fun, epic work, dare to be crazy, dare to not be perfect - laugh... 

Reaction...  you are entertained, we stir your soul in some way that enhances your life and connect with you through the music... 

 

Reaction... we inspire you to join with us and support  this crazy dream so we can fly togetand her make a worldwide impact...

 

Reaction... we inspire top Agents and Promoters to take on representing our work in Britain and in Canada / North America and worldwide.

I once turned down IMG - because I was advised their contract was too strict. ACT TWO now - Blow the Doors Off...

So to be bold, give this all  / we have and see where the chips fall.  And put Newton's Law to the test - starts here... Enjoy.  Nicky

OUR BRAND PORTFOLIO

THE GOAL

I LOVE ARENAS

I SKATED IN THEM AROUND THE WORLD IN MY COMPETITIVE CAREER

I COMMENTATED AND PRESENTED IN THEM AS A BROADCASTER

I CO-PRODUCED & PRESENTED SHOWS IN THEM ACROSS AMERICA

I JUDGED IN THEM - WORLD PRO CHAMPIONSHIPS AND DANCING ON ICE

AND I SKATED ON THE ICE ALONE AFTER THOSE SHOWS

NOW THE GOAL IS TO BRING MY OWN SHOW

- WITHIN FIVE YEARS -

TO THE MEN ARENA IN MANCHESTER, ENGLAND

THIS TIME WITH MY MUSIC, COMEDY AND A GREAT BAND

THE MUSIC FOR SHOW ONE IS DONE

ALL WE NEED ARE 12,000 FRIENDS TO JOIN US

TO SING, LAUGH, DANCE

AND CELEBRATE! 

N & C

I have been blessed by having beautiful women around me all my life. Mistakes I made, hurt caused, laughter and joy created too. I'm sorry for the hurt and I hope you can remember the laughter ladies.

I love women, they are the most amazing creation. Beautiful, enticing or removed, talkative or reflective, ever changing, coloured with depth, complexity and mystery. I've spent a small fortune over the years on coffees, lunches and candelit dinners. Adventures and insights that provide fuel for songs.

 

Today, alongside of me is Christiane, my beautiful wife. Now, just to be clear, she does not want to work with me. She wants to be wife, mother, friend, homemaker, photographer, gift maker... 

 

So  it's taken a a while for me to get my head and heart round this - i don't want to work with you. Because I married her, in part, so we could work together! She has such great talents I thought we'd be awesome.

And yet - say it quietly - CHRISTIANESMEDIA is helping fuel the fire here. Her photos, ability to check accuracy of text - along with her singing and speaking talents are formidable. All of which I'm keen to use.

So she waits, it's been over ten years so far, to see if I can make this work? The vision is constant, the delivery is taking a while!

And, as a friend says, she is an angel. Indeed, many would have not lasted the course of risk, constant re-iteration and time this journey has taken so far. Maybe she has a story to come round this?

Oh yes and just don't say anything about 'working together.'

 

And we'll be fine.
