Mustafa Abbas is an Emirati film-maker. Originality has always
been his goal. 100 Miles his short film won the Best Non-
Documentary Film Award at the 2007 Emirates Film Competition.
The Alley his other short film was selected to play in the short film
corner section of the Cannes Film Festival. Some of his
trademarks are portraying dark characters in a good light, and
using birds for symbolism. Abbas has written several feature-
length screenplays. Some are currently in development. Other
than being crime-based, his films often have a “modern-noir” feel,
due to the gritty dialogue and shadowy lighting. Abbas has had
many articles written on him in local magazines and newspapers,
and also been interviewed on TV as a writer/director. At the age of
12, he started toying around with handycams, and shooting films
with his friends on weekends. Little by little, it became a vital part
of his life. The main and possibly only source of inspiration for
Abbas is human beings. Like the film industry in the United Arab
Emirates, his name is growing.

Ordinary, everyday people are building fun and profitable Internet businesses and turning around their lives using nothing else but their computer and an Internet connection! Sounds crazy but... to enjoy that kind of success you don't have to be a technical genius or a marketing expert! Far from it, in fact... Can you log on to your Internet connection? Do you know how to use a web browser and send email? If answered yes to both questions above, you have more than enough technical knowledge to start your own online business that throws off a solid, safe and steady long-term income stream. What Would That Mean To You? For some, the best thing about owning their own Internet business will be the money, pure and simple. To others, having an Internet business means total freedom. Freedom from money worries ... freedom from having to punch a time clock ... freedom from having to answer to a boss or work at a job you don't like. And for others, it's the lifestyle.... When you have an Internet business, you're not locked into living close to the city where your employer has their offices or plant ... and so you can live anywhere you wish. And, thanks to the profits from your new online business, you could have more than enough money to indulge your passions ... and live life to the fullest, free of financial worries ... wherever you choose. Money. Freedom. Travel. Financial independence. Security. And a steady stream of revenue for which you do very little work. Having your own Internet business can give you all these things - and so much more. You must decide if this is the kind of life you are ready for. If so, there is good news... I strongly believe that any motivated person can use my Internet business model to create a secondary income stream... that can soon become a PRIMARY income stream!
