Whoa where do I start. Just sharin’ this little baby project “THUMBS UP! CDO TV” will soon launch like a rocketship. We (Thumbs Up Team | The Creative Lounge CDO Team) have been scouting for a venue to showcase this first ever ONLINE TV in the City of Golden Friendship. With literally a dozen times denied, neglected and underestimated by significant people with a position in the society, leaders of the community, the tourism peeps, the corporate a-holes, etc etc…
Anyhow, sour grapping did not stop us from looking for some more options. For a fact that even if you have the GOLD BARs in your hand, it wasn’t attractive to them at all. Being in the third-world country and with government of “to see is to believe” mentality, well I guess if you are new in [The City] you can’t expect everybody to think positively and jump in to your idea right away. Even we had an awesome presentation kit handy and ready always.Either they want to see you first make it or break it. They’ll reward you with a pat in the back for making it “on your own” or “better lack next time buddy”. With their eyebrows raised, Online show? Internet TV? about our City? certainly not the positive response you expect from this people. I just simply put it this way we are a group of independent media producers and film makers back then producing shows, tv ads, etc in Manila. from foods to bands, lifestyle and what have you. (we handed them our demo reel)
This went on for quite sometime till such time we had an opportunity to meet up with the staff/marketing peeps of the city’s SOON TO OPEN MALL. CENTRIO AYALA MAL. We presented to them our idea and plan for the show with great enthusiasm and “POSIVIBE” positive outlook. Dang, They liked it (not sure co’z they probably need some events to pump out their mall activity). But yeah finally, somebody got the interest, whooo we didn’t celebrate just yet not until we finally had our BIG DAY Booked. I thank GOD for the good sign, the friends who stayed with me and had same mind set of “IF NO ONE TAKES THE RISK, WHO WILL?”
Hope I didn’t bore you with this. I Will share you vids and photos in the next post.
Thanks for bearing with me. #GoodVibes
I’m “A jack of all trades who’s interested in any photography, video/film productions or audio-related work that offers me intellectual and creative challenges, ehm like exposure to different people and places (I love traveling a lot, so you can send me to Afghanistan or wherever) I have a BIG room for professional growth. Boom! I’m a passionate story-teller and an experimental junkie. I’m not afraid to cross and break the boundaries of possible and impossible, I believe in a simple philosophy — “impossible can only be found in the foolish dictionary”.
