Wow! What can we say. Thank you to all the artists and supporters who attended the last Speak up! of "08". We had another fantastic turn out and the line up was HOT! Thank you Arne Venema, Preston Lau and every other act from 2008. It has been a spectacular year.
e.v.e.n.t's Creative Director Roger De Leon ( Re:Flex) and producer Kate Sullivan said a special thank you to our main sponsors and supporters: Alive Not Dead, Elden Cheung, Anniewho, Winnie Lam (Philia Lounge) and Robert Rogers. Since we co-founded the company in April '08 we have hosted, sponsored and supported 18 events in Hong Kong.
We introduced our biggest success story of the year, CB FRESHwho met at our 2nd Speak Up! and have been working together ever since. They showed us some of their TV series, commercial, and their newly released E True Hong Kong Story. Absolutly amazing! And hilariously funny! Sadly, it was Simon Yin's last night in HK for a while as he has just jet off to glamorous LA for pilot season. Good luck buddy and we will miss you!
We later showed the trailer for the film "The Other End of the Gun" Directed by Patrice Poujol and starring your friends, Kate Sullivan and Roger De Leon. We were proud to share this with everyone and look forward to the final cut. Derrick Fong was our DP!
Our next big event is our Old School Hip Hop night this Saturday at Philia Lounge. Make sure you check out the AnD event invite and get on down. We have a slick line up and some live beat boxing & MC's. Ladies drink free Cosmopolitans from 10pm-11pm. Woop!
In the mean time, hope you enjoy some of our fav photos from the last Speak Up! of '08.
See you all at GROUNDED!
