Launch Takes Off!

Launch 2nd Feb 2010

Nearly 200 creatives showed up to support LAUNCH!, Singapore's Premier Networking Evening for the Film, TV, Media and Arts industry on February 2nd 2010. There was a great vibe at the Helipad and a great crowd came out including over 20 local production companies, several talent agencies, directors, producers, casting directors, creative directors, writers and many actors, hosts, models and other creatives.

It was a wonderful chance to catch up with past and present work colleagues, as well as meet and network with new contacts. Entertainment by Singapore's only Beatbox A Capella Crew BEATZ went off as did the fantastic accoustic set performed by the very talented Joshua Simon and Steph Micayle. Many new friendships and connections were made which hopefully will be a springboard for future collaborations and projects! Thank-you to all of you who supported the Evening and we look forward to seeing you at the next LAUNCH! Event.

Launch

ABOUT LAUNCH: Launch began as an idea in late 2009. After arriving in Singapore looking for work as a host and actor, Derrick Siu was fortunate to have worked with many great cast and crew on various productions and events. Realising that most people in the industry are too busy and rarely get the chance to interact with each other outside the work environment, the idea to organise a mixer and bring creatives together for a chance to not only catch up socially with past work colleagues, but also to expand possibilities of future work by meeting and making new contacts in the industry. After some research, the idea became a work in motion and the concept of LAUNCH was born on Jan 15th 2010. As an extension of LAUNCH - Singapore's Premier Networking Event for the Film, TV and Media Industry, TheLaunchBlock.com was established and aims to exist as a platform for creatives to connect, collaborate and create!
