A couple of months after the YouTube Fan Fest held in Manila, a small group of individuals in the Philippines decided to organize a group for YouTube Creators to interact and meet fellow YouTube Filipino Creators. Creator is a term used to describe YouTube user who creates videos and upload them on YouTube. While YouTube Fans, as the name it implies, are the ones who uses YouTube to appreciate (or not) its content.
Despite the thunderstorms and strong winds of the Typhoon Goni (Ineng) last Friday 21 August 2015, the YouTube group of video creators celebrated the holiday by having their general meet up at the Starbucks Trinoma Mall, Quezon City.
The activity started on time at 3 in the afternoon. Participants were initially asked to tell something about themselves and what their channel is all about. Mainly bloggers, vloggers and music cover artists attended the event. Some were part of networks like ABS-CBN’s multi-channel network Chicken Pork Adobo, TMG Philippines and Viva Entertainment. It was a good time to interact as members learn from each other and others networks. Some decided to trade contact numbers for a scheduled video collaboration and cross promotions.
One of the highlights of the day was a challenge to make an impromptu video collaboration featuring each creative personality. While waiting for their turn, members were already taking the advantage to shoot videos and take pictures for their social media platforms. Parodies of pabebe girls and how to eat a mamon in a pabebe way were some creative concepts created. Everybody gained new friends and had fun.
The Hub would also like to thank Hattendo Philippines for providing two of their best selling flavors for the attendees to try. Hattendo serves Japanese Chilled cream buns that come in seven flavors: Custard, Whipped Cream, Mango, Chocolate, Matcha, Azuki Bean, and Chestnut. Hattendo Japanese Chilled Cream buns are located at 2nd Flr. of Megamall Fashion hall and at Mall of Asia.
Also, special thanks to the creator hub’s newest admin Ms. Alice Mate for managing the event.
