AXN Discovers Mesmerizing Talent During the Casting for Asia’s Got Talent

PHILIPPINES (June 19, 2017) Head spinning, death-defying, magical and breath-taking: aspiring stars emerged from all corners of Asia in May as AXN’s producers embarked on their search to discover the next generation of super stars for Asia’s Got Talent.

The leading entertainment giant held open auditions in six major cities including Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, the Philippines, Bangkok, Taipei and Jakarta. Over 5000 performers attended the auditions for their chance to take the spotlight on the world’s biggest talent show and for a shot at the grand prize of USD100,000 in cash.

Talented hopefuls could also apply via an online audition at AXN-Asia.com with some electing to do both to ensure maximum visibility in front of AXN’s producers.

“Asia’s Got Talent is the only series in the world that can unite such a culturally diverse region in a celebration of performing arts. We set out to discover the most inspiring talent of any age and with any dream, and we got all that and so much more.

“We were also struck by the richness of the personal stories that emerged during the auditions. Everyone has a story, and while the journeys may differ, the big dream remains the same,” said Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Production and Marketing, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia.

 

In the Singapore leg, one troupe of Malaysian acrobats queued from 4am; while in Manila, a father and son travelled overland for eight hours to perform a duet. Performers auditioned in the hope of winning the prize to help with family medical bills; while others, who came along as a support, decided to spontaneously audition on the spot.   

“AXN is the home of original productions and Asia’s Got Talent continues our commitment to deliver premium content that engages and captivates our viewers with edge-of-your seat entertainment,” said Virginia.

The record-breaking series returns to AXN later this year, entertaining viewers with 10 episodes comprising five judges’ auditions, three semi-finals, the finale and the results show where the winner will be revealed.

Asia’s Got Talent is presented by official sponsor, Traveloka, the leading travel booking app.

Nationwide Alay PARA Atleta Program launched at First Philippine Para Sports Summit

Quezon City, Philippines – Filipino para-athletes are raring to compete for the country in the coming 9th ASEAN Para Games in Malaysia this September 2017 and looking forward with gusto to the Asian Para Games in Indonesia in 2018, the 10th ASEAN Para Games in Manila and the Tokyo Paralympic Games in 2020.

The Philippine Paralympic Committee (PPC) and the Philippine Sports Association for the Differently Abled (PHILSPADA) held yesterday (June 9) the first ever Philippine Para Sports Summit at Microtel, Technohub in Diliman, Quezon City. With the theme “Transcending Barriers Through Sports”, the summit underscored PPC-PHILSPADA’s mission to develop an inclusive society that uses para sports as a tool to change the lives of Filipinos with disabilities.

Contributions made through mobile phone access will boost funding for para-athletes and teams to achieve sporting excellence that will excite and inspire the world.

The Summit discussed the Paralympic Movement, the Paralympics Classification System, medical sports science and anti-doping, the achievements and plight of Filipino para-athletes, para-athletes’ actual experiences in foreign competition and PPC-PHILSPADA’s plans and programs for the next three years. Michael I. Barredo, President of PPC-PHILSPADA made a call to action at the end of the one-day summit for both government and private sectors to join the Paralympic Movement.

“These special athletes compete doubly hard, against all odds, through hardships, difficulties and physical handicaps to give glory to the country just like athletes without disabilities. They desire nothing more but to be given an equal chance to prove their worth and serve the country in their special way,” Barredo said.

PPC-PHILSPADA aims to rejuvenate paralympic sports in the country and establish offices in the regions to strengthen the organization and expand the athletes’ pool nationwide. The long-term goal, Barredo said, is to enlarge the scope of Philippine Paralympic sports to include para golf, para hockey, para chess and others.

Among the speakers at the Summit were champion powerlifter, Adeline Ancheta, Bronze Medalist at the Sydney Paralympic Games 2000; Josephine Medina, table tennis Bronze Medalist at the Rio Paralympic Games in 2016, Ernie Gawilan, Davao’s para-athlete swimming sensation and consistent Gold Medalist in ASEAN Para Games; Joel Deriada, Athletics coach and Vernon Perea, Wheelchair Basketball coach.

A moving Dance Sport exhibition by Filipino para-athletes Julius Jun Obero and Rhea Marquez, World Champions in the Paralympic Dance Sport Competition in Rome 2015, opened the eyes of participants, media and guests to the power and beauty of this sport as performed by para-athletes.

PPC, the national Paralympic Committee of the Philippines and PHILSPADA are the organizations that spearhead activities and take care of operational requirements of elite athletes with disabilities (orthopedic disability, cerebral palsy, visual impairment and mental disabilities).

Just before the end of may 2017, me and my family got the chance to witness and experience the youth camp at The Highlands Camp and Conference Center in Iba, Zambales, produced and organized by Global Surge.

The Camp site is highly secure with a total land of 52 hectares, it’s a huge camp site. If you are a participant camper to this event when you got in there is no way for you to get out of the camp site unless it’s done.

Global surge mission is to bring in the youth camper with the consent of the parents and the church, and impart them the importance of living with GOD. The usual youth camper here are the non Christian or Non Believer, youth that walk around the street and be themselves with no limits or have no plans for their future, but to involve themselves into sex, drugs, crime and disrespect people around them.

  

This is how Global Surge Camp of reaching out the non-believers youth via lifestyle live entertainment just like being in the network studio, entertain them with the band, Dancers and Singing during the camp schedule. One Pastor said during the camp ( ikaw na bilang kabataan kaya mong paunlarin and bansang pilipinas sa papagitan sa pagtitiwala mo sa iyong sarili at mg gawaing kabutihan, Pero kung ikaw ay maka sarili, involve ka sa mga aktibidad tulad, droga, gang rape, at iba pang klase ng krimen ikaw ang mag papabagsak sa ating bansang pilipinas. Sharp word, enough to wound up your heart. Yet it’s been said that “ Only Truth Will Set You Free “, hard to accept the truth, but the truth will bring you to happiness in life.

Youth Campers have time to have fun like this kind of games to entertain them during the day, it’s a team work so everyone can participate Boys and Girls.

This kind of fun games are wipe out our millennial and it will be remembered after attending the youth camp by Global Surge…

 

This are their Team  Identity…

Team Light Network invade Global Surge Camp at highlands Iba, Zambales. 

Got the chance to interview 4 of the youth campers in this event and this four teenager’s are active in their church in pampannga province, this is out side metro manila. Karen, Christine, Kim and Chelsea are from Mangin Baptist Church in Dagupan, Pampangga. 

The purpose of this youth camp is to help our existing teenager to go near to the church and help them find their way to our god, make them realize the purpose of being alive.

Out-of-home advertising effective tool for Metro consumers

Out-of-home advertising appears to be an effective touchpoint for middle class consumers in Metro Manila, with the country’s busiest highway, EDSA, garnering 43.9 percent market share of the multi-billion industry.

This was revealed in the latest study conducted by Strategic Consumer and Media Incites (SMCI), a consumer and market research company, which covered respondents from 13 to 60 years old in all social classes A-E and those living around Metro Manila.

Sample Only

The study titled: Out of Home Landscape and Advertising conducted by the SCMI showed that most billboard ads are products and services essential to lifestyle and not basic needs.

South and North Luzon Expressways came in next with 21.2 per cent and 19.8 per cent shares, respectively. The rest of the secondary roads such as Ortigas, Commonwealth, Roxas Blvd., Quezon Ave., Espana, Quezon Blvd., Commonwealth, NAIA, and Marcos Highway shared 15 percent of the market share.

Top ten billboard ads in Metro Manila include fashion products, real estate and banking. These were followed by cars, medicines, restaurants, clinics and hospitals as well as home furnishings.

“The mix of product categories in Billboard advertising appears to be those that are essential to lifestyle and not about basic needs as evident in the proportion of lifestyle categories cornering the major shares in ad spending on this medium,” said Eric Barrera, Client Service Director.

Most popular brands that advertise in various media platforms also dominate Out of Home or billboard ads, according to the study.

SCMI study shows lifestyle products and services dominate products advertised on billboards with spending up to P285.20 Million in the first three months of 2017. These products are fashion boutiques, real estate, beverages, banks and financial services, fastfoods, media companies , passenger cars/AUVs, over the counter medicines/supplies, canned food processed meats, restaurants. The lowest spending for these products is at P53 Million.

The top ten billboard advertisers according to the study include Suyen Corp., Jollibee, San Miguel Corp., Tiara Commercial, Robinsons, Pepsi Cola, SM Devt Corp, Golden ABC, Vida Nutriscience and Iflix with spending between P22 Million to P115 Million from January to March 2017.

Top products on billboard ads include brands such as Bench, SMC, Jollibee, Rob, Penshoppe, Iflix, SMDC, Chowking, Gibi and Mcdonald’s with a total spending of P19 Million to P106 Million in the first three months of 2017.

The survey that covers those who travel around Metro Manila except drivers of public transport also showed that “the advertising clutter is more glaring at the level of brand names.”

“The list of top brand players is longer than what are usually observed in core media. Each top brand could achieve only a single digit in the share of advertising spend,” Barrera said.

The study also reveals frequency of travels and specific time where people from all walks of life could see billboard ads.

· Working population are mostly out on travel from 5pm onwards.

· Out of Home travels peak between 6-9am and 5-7pm

· Class ABCs are likely to be out during morning rush hour 7-9am and less likely to be out at noontime

· Females travel mostly on late mornings while males are likely to be out of home during evening rush hour at 5-6pm

· Teens are the most likely to be out of home before 7am and 12nn-3pm and least likely to be traveling from 7-11am

· Non working population are more likely to be out earlier in the day and close to noon

According to the survey, some of the positive attributes of billboard ads that make it attractive to the target markets are: visually pleasing, colorful, eye catching and clear. However, its downside mostly concerns security such as fears it’s too big and might collapse, blocks views as well as distracting particularly those that carry sexy visuals of celebrities.

The study shows that already popular brands maintain strong presence in billboard ads. These include clothing line Bench and food and beverage giants Jollibee and Coke.

Telecommunications firm Smart and Globe and fastfood multinational McDonalds follow in terms of managing presence in billboard ads. Bearbrand (milk), Chowking (fastfood), Marlboro (cigarettes) and Samsung (electronics) are also on top ten list of popular billboard ads.

Barrera pointed out thought that while Out of Home is increasingly becoming a popular platform, television still dominates the media platforms for advertising followed by Mobile and Out of Home advertising. Internet and radio platforms maintained popularity.

SCMI believes there will be an increase in demand to measure audience exposure of Out of Home ads due to its steady rise in popularity. The study on audience exposure will be useful for advertisers and their agencies to plan their communication strategies.
