May 2019 is a set to be a huge month for Star Magic as it celebrates its 27th year in discovering, honing and marketing the biggest and brightest talents in the local entertainment industry. Aside from the launch of the newest members of the family, collectively known as the 2019 Star Magic Circle, Star Magic actually has more reasons to celebrate.
The premiere talent agency elevates itself once again by developing new concepts and going over expectations to mark its 27 years of supremacy in the talent management arena.
After years of providing talents for traditional and contemporary platforms, Star Magic finally delves into long form digital content creation. What better way to kick it off by giving a peek on its two biggest contributions to the industry—the Star Circle batches and the Star Magic Catalogue.
The “Journey to Star Circle” documentary which premiered last May 15 and ended in May 22 on Star Magic’s Facebook page and YouTube channel, is a documentary hosted by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, which documented the process of talent discovery and star building by following the quest of the newly-launched Star Circle batch. The eight-part documentary now has a combined 500,000 views on YouTube and Facebook.
Where there are stars, there’s a need to market them. After more than two decades, Star Magic is finally giving the avid supporters a peek into the annual star-studded editorial, through the first-ever “The Making of the Star Magic Catalogue” documentary.
The three-episode documentary which will be premiering on May 30 also on Star Magic’s Facebook Page and YouTube Channel, will tackle the beginnings, evolution, creation and the future of the Star Magic Catalogue from being an internal casting material, to a marketing tool and to a fan memorabilia. The Star Magic Catalogue 2019 will also be available at the ABS-CBN Stores.
