You know what I think is cool? Art. Art in all forms. I especially love 2D art, and visiting museums and galleries to get access to all of this cool art. I also love going to art shows to support more underground artists who are perhaps not as well-known. My best friend is one of these underground artists. She paints abstract pieces and hangs them up in a warehouse for people to see with a small fee that ultimately pays her rent. It’s an interesting business model.
I’ve also been following this 2D animation company operating in Melbourne for a little while. They do some great work, and make some awesome short films that they post on the internet. I’ve been in contact with the owner of this company and apparently, they want to host a screening for the first time and see how it goes. I think that’s a brilliant idea. They’ve already got a decent following on social media and most of their fans seem to be local, so I can imagine a lot of them turning up for the event especially if there’s free food.
They’re a bit hesitant because they’re a small company and there would be a lot of planning and potential costs involved in hosting such an event. They’ve thought about transitioning to corporate video production because it has the potential to earn them more. I mean, I’ll support them no matter what they do since their team is filled with really kind and talented people, but I am partial to the 2D animation since that was what brought me to their company in the first place and has held my attention for the past couple of years. I have a friend who does catering professionally, so maybe I could ask them to help with the food challenge at a slightly more affordable price than usual? I shall find out!
