We Grow Up raises money for film
April 1, 2009 2:39 PM
The first "When I grow up" event to raise funds for the student led film Gweilo was hosted by We Grow Up on Friday, March 20.
Julian Ong, 20, is prepping the silver rack to place Fish Eggs and Milk on the rack. His clothing line, along with fellow SF State student Robinson Nguyen, 22, is debuting a bunch of new t-shirts. Fish Eggs and Milk, is a company put together by the duo as a creative outlet. They recently collaborated together in another endeavor, starting We Grow Up, which is an independent artist networking group.
"Artist is such a broad term to me," Ong said. "An artist incorporates fashion designers, musicians, film makers, singers, dancers and much more. We want to collaborate with as many people and help them try to pursue their passions and pursue their dreams, because that is what Robinson and I are doing."
But for tonight, t-shirt companies are setting up stands and selling their own labels in support of We Grow Up and their current project Gweilo.
Gweilo is a film project put on by SF State student Bianca Davies, 21. She started the project due to the demand for art department classes in the Cinema department. Gweilo is the first project to create opportunities for cinema and theater majors to focus on the working on wardrobe, props and any aspect of the art department. The project works with professionals with in the Los Angeles area to learn the basic techniques.
"It is something that is not taught in any film schools in most of the country and it is something I really want to do when I grow up and get out of school," Davies said. "I wanted to bring that opportunity for other people. "
With the drinks running low and the cash flowing through the door, the crowd is nothing but supportive for the guys and Gweilo.
