Since we had so much fun in the last Art Party, we’ve decided to do it again.
When we see someone at the top of their industry, we often look at the highlights. We’re blinded by the glitz and the glamour, and we miss out on the trials and tribulations.
Jason Magbanua, renowned wedding videographer, gave us a glimpse of his story in a tweet storm lamenting on how difficult it was in the beginning, how no one saw the value of a wedding video, and how he persevered to get to where he is now.
One of the biggest challenges for creatives in Cebu is finding avenues to show their work, creating a community to support each other, and getting an audience to appreciate their craft. The mission of Zerothreetwo has always been to highlight and feature the different creative niches in Cebu. It’s high time we started taking that support out of the internet and into the real world.
One of the most fun times in my life was when I played in a band called Rescue a Hero. Nothing could replace the joy of hanging out and playing music with my best friends. What started out as weekly practice sessions soon became weekly gigs. The Cebu Rock scene was fun. We played in shitty bars as well as our favorites – Outpost was the best.
Art is scary.
Anyone who has poured their soul into a piece of art knows that releasing it to the world in front of prying judgmental eyes is one of the most vulnerable experiences of an artist.
But in order for art to flourish, it needs to get out there.
