Bret Jackson moved back to his hometown of Dumaguete and is helping spread Filipino talent with his new companies 7640 and Paraisla in partnership with AGC Powerholdings Corp. As he ventures in these new projects, Bret looks to bring the talent from the provinces to the forefront. He sat down with MEGA Man to talk about empowering the youth and risking it all.

The launch of 7640 and Paraisla took a couple of years of brainstorming and preparation before fully forming. Bret teamed up with AGC Powerholdings Corp, the home of the biggest local and international media brands to make it happen. 7640 is a full-scale production house and marketing think tank that focuses on creating meaningful content; Paraisla is a record label created by artists for artists that looks to emphasize culture in the entertainment industry.

Bret made the shift and moved back to Dumaguete to pursue these new ventures and become a creative powerhouse. The homecoming began during the pandemic and made him want to become the best version of himself. He aims to push the culture through local artists and tell a narrative that everyone is worth something no matter what anyone tells you.

The pull to start a production house and record label started because of Bernard, a friend and local artist who recently passed. He was a fellow artist in every sense from being a musician to creating art and poetry. He was someone who Bret looked up to. Although a local celeb himself, Bernard encouraged Bret to bring his own knowledge home and to help the community in Dumaguete.

“ He [Bernard] was the one who made me realize a lot of things. He was the one who kept telling me that I have to come home. ‘You need to bring back what you know and what you do, and you need to help these artists here.’”


Now, Bret's home and ready for his vision to come true. He wants to pay it forward to other creatives and be what Bernard was for him. “I didn’t make it in time to be able to help my friend, but that’s why I’m more driven than ever right now to continue what I’m doing because there’s another Bernard out there. There’s another little me. All these [creative] kids that deserve it."
