On 10-4-2015, I went to a restaurant commercial TV anchor workshop. Its name is 8sian. That visit was sponsored by Lajaja Kids. We were so lucky that we got to meet the vice president of 8sian, Adam Chiu. We also got to meet the producer, editor, and filmer. We learned how to film with a camcorder, edit the film, and how to speak in front of a camera. 8sian plays its commercials in restaurants such as Boston Café, China Red Chinese Cuisine, and May Mei Restaurant. This visit was truly amazing and it shall never be forgotten.

On October 4, 2015, we went to 8sian Media studio office to learn how to do a TV anchor. First, we explored the office for awhile, then the vice president came and to talk to us about 8sian. He said 8sian is specialized in restaurant TV programs; 8sian produces and edits the TV programs then upload the final products and send the programs to the restaurants so then they could play the programs in their restaurant TVs.8sian restaurant TV programs are available in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The interesting thing I found out is 8sian TV programs are only available restaurants not at home. You can see 8sian in Garden café and many other restaurants. READ MORE

On October 4, 2015, the LaJaJa Kids Jr. Journalists visited the 8sian Media studio in Arcadia, CA. Mr. Adam Shiu, the vice president, explained to us about the company and the way it operates.

What is 8sian Media and what does it do? When you go to some restaurants, do you realize that there are TVs? 8sian Media is the company that installs those TVs into the restaurants such as Kirin Buffet, New Fusion, and Garden Cafe, and then they make the shows that are played on them. The company has installed those TVs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. They are currently working on Chicago and Houston.

On October4th 2015 I learned a lot at the 8sian Media as a Lajaja junior journalist. The vice president, Mr. Adam Shiu was nicely introducing how the company functioned correctly. I learned how they set up TV channels in more than a hundred restaurants. The company will pay all the installations. Any profit that they earn will share with the restaurant or the place they put up the TV. They did commercials for spas, too. They already put their TVs in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Their next target places are Chicago and Houston. They get so many views a month and their TVs are not for home use. READ MORE
