Get in touch with us here.
The company (formerly known as “1001 Bintang”) was established on 22nd February 2015, with a goal of providing a platform for musicians and creatives in the local entertainment scene to share their stories, while at the same time, providing an insight on regional pop news from a Bruneian perspective.
In 2017, the online portal took a different path and was rebranded to 1001 Magazine – an online publication that has now added fashion into its list. Since then, the organization has been at the forefront in supporting the growth of the local creative industry.
“We want to provide a platform for more actors and film makers to express, musicians to spread their wings, fashion designers to inspire and be inspired, make-up artists to paint, photographers to experiment, and other creatives to grow together as partners.”Zulhelmi Kamaluddin, Editor-in-Chief, 1001 Magazine (2017)
The 1001 Models & Talents Unit was set up in July 2019 with an objective to transform 1001 Entertainment as a premier, one-stop talent management company in Brunei. On top of scouting for potential fashion models, commercial talents and actors, the unit is also looking at crafting the career of rising Bruneian soloists. To support the expansion, two more units were introduced in the first quarter of 2020.
The 1001 Creative Media Unit is responsible for music production, as well as the digital and creative media contents of the organization. The unit trains and manages photographers and videographers who are registered as talents under 1001.
The 1001 Arts & Events Unit, on the other hand, is primarily involved in the management of make-up artists, art direction and styling for photoshoots and shows, in addition to overseeing the 1001 Brand as a whole. The unit is also in charge of organizing fashion and music events by 1001 and regularly, assist regional designers in coordinating private trunk shows or fashion events in the country.
