Mindanao Film Festival a SUCCESS!

Here's some PROOF that the Mindanao Film Festival was a success unlike what OTHERS have said. It was held at The Venue last December 21, 2008.



Trophies up for grabs for the filmmakers. Despite working without funds, we were able to come up with decent trophies and a reasonable cash prize for the Best Film. (My team received 7 of those back then.)

(100th Post!) Workshop with Director Peque Gallaga

Its my 100th post! And I would like to share a portion of what happened last Saturday. I hurried and took a taxi to Durian Owl where the workshop would be held. When I arrived, there were already some participants comfortably sitting on the sofas.

After a while the director of the movie "Oro, Plata, Mata, Batang X, Scorpion Nights, Magic Kingdom, etc.", director Peque Gallaga arrived. I can tell that the participants were already excited after seeing him by looking at their faces. We settled at the comfortable sofas, and he started talking.

After the whole day talking, we had a nice fellowship after the workshop. Dish Avenue prepared the cocktails, Durian Owl hosted the place. Good place, good food, good peeps!

Lazy Day Sunday (again)

I had a lazy Sunday yesterday. I just stayed in my room while waiting for my brother to go home. He is using the camera that I needed to capture a video to my laptop. While waiting, I went up to get one of my sister’s books and read. I realized I needed a desk lamp while am reading it.

I searched the web and I bumped into a lamps buying guide. They have moveable and fixed lamps. Good and fashionable designs too. You can easily find what you want when you visit their site because the lamps are categorized based on the kind of lamp.

Back in my room, I can just imagine where to place the desk lamp that I’m planning to buy.

Guerilla Filmmaking 6 - Day 1 Kicks Off

I hurried to go to school since our group project that will be shown in the class on that very same day is not yet finished. I still have to get some parts of the presentation from my classmate.

We immediately assembled the parts of the presentation and was able to make it on time.

After the class, I decided to go to the 1st day of the Guerilla Filmmaking Workshop that is being held at Durian Oowl Bar.

The director of the film "Huling Balyan ng Buhi", Sherad Anthony Sanchez, is already listening to the participants as they develop a story out of the picture on the newspaper.

Reminiscing Technographix V

I got bored and tried to search for my name. To my surprise, I got this article from this site! Oh my, I can still feel the joy of winning this competition. I remember we've worked so hard to be in the final 20 of this competition. Spent a day just to render 10 seconds of 3d animation, barely slept, and a lot of teamwork. We've been working on the project separately. Usually, we meet before going home and discuss what will be done and work on it until the wee hours of the morning. Sweet!

"95.5 WRocK came up with the highly successful Lite RocK Technographix V, a computer graphics final competition on its 5th year, last August 17, 2004 at SM City Entertainment Plaza. The endeavor was WRocK’s brainchild and its annual involvement to the Kadayawan Sa Dabaw festivities. It aimed to provide a new venue for the depiction of Davao’s Kadayawan Festival (the Kadayawan has been portrayed in film, dramas, plays, paintings and other traditional forms of art. Every year, WRocK aims to drop a unique accent to the festival by coming up with something that is entirely new to the people of Davao); To encourage the city’s young and budding computer artists to excel in their field of specialty in an atmosphere of healthy, motivational competition; and to prove to the rest of the country that Mindanao is at par with the times by being actively involved in the technological advance of the millennium.

57 contestants, 19 entries representing 11 schools, colleges and universities vied for the grand prizes in the revelry of the fusion of roots and modern art; the combination of culture and technography; of ethnicity and computer graphics.

Entry No. 13 from Jayson Albano, Raphael Villejo, James and Michael Wales and Andrew Gabotero of AMA Computer College garnered the 3rd prize. Entry No. 14 from Eric Clark Su of John Paul II College of Davao was proclaimed 2nd place. Entry No. 18 from McRobert Nacario, Felino Diel, Rosenlee Torres, Gemini Ritz Ayupan, Erick Derama and Raymond Sunga of AMA Computer College brought home the Grand prizes which includes a brand new 128 mb Philips Digicam, accommodation at Eden Nature Park and exciting premium items from WRocK. Texters’ choice award was given to Shane Ryan Diaz and Kirth Anthony Anthony of Cor Jesu College, Digos City.

Vocal quintet, D’ COUSINS, and the highly-esteemed Shayloh rendered delightful intermission numbers.

The judges were: Mr. Edwin Maranon, IT Chair of Region XI; Mr. Kenneth Arquiza, Edit Station’s Proprietor; Mr. Ian Garcia, City Tourism Officer, Mr. Patrick Andong, owner of Blinque, and Mr. Lou Raphael Canedo, proprietor of Alchemy of Light and Vision .

WRocK Assistant for Programming and Production, Donn Gonzales was the highly-spirited host of the event, assisted by Glenn Estipona, Jeruel Garado and Ben Ng Suy of 4Faces.

Lite Rock Technographix V is also presented by SM City and Edit Station. Sponsored by Alchemy of Vision and Light, 4Faces Event Masters, Brokenshire College, Philips. WRocK extends its gratitude to Sunburst, CBS Metalcraft Marco Polo Davao Skycable, Chippens, Sony Music, Apo Natural Spring Water, Level Up Games and Mediskin.

Isang paskil na nakasabit sa pintuan na nagsasabing "Dean's Office". May kumatok. "Tuloy.." sabi ng boses na nanggaling sa loob.

"Sir Dean, papipirmahan ko lang po sana 'tong excuse letter ko" sabi ng estudyante.

"Ah working student ka pala?" tanong ng kalbuhing dean.

Tumango ang estudyante. "Opo, eh nagkaroon po kasi ng event sir na kelangang andun talaga ako. Hindi po pupwedeng maiwanan."

"Aba eh, hindi ko pwedeng pirmahan yan. Excuse ka lang sa klase pag nagkasakit ka, o kaya ay namatayan... pero pag trabaho, hindi pw-"

"-hehe, ibig nyo po bang sabihin sir kailangan ko pong mag sinungaling para mapirmahan pa yan?" tanong ng estudyanteng napatawa na lang sa kanyang narinig.

"Oo naman, kung kinakailangang magsinungaling ka para mapirmahan ko yan gawin mo.." sagot ng Dean.


Nakakainis isipin noh? pero totoo to.. nangyari nung pinapirmahan ng isang estudyante yung excuse letter nya sa DEAN ng AMA Computer College - Davao.

Kadayawan: Indak-indak sa Kadalanan

I arrived at AVL 4:50 in the morning since our call time was 5 a.m. I wanted to sleep because I didn't get to sleep the night before. Since the people was still sleeping when I arrived.. I went to sleep also.. LOL!

When I woke up they already left for Rizal Park where the showdown for all the street dancing participants will take place. I immediately went there also to help them setup the equipments. We will be covering the street dancing showdown live, for a local cableTV station. Since our airing will be in the afternoon and I won't be able to take pictures then, I took some pictures that morning.. :D

There were a lot of photographers taking pictures that day, Pro's, tourists, and hobbyist as well.

You have to pass these warriors before you can rent the place..

Banzai

Back in my high school days, a lot of my schoolmates have this gadget clinging on to the zipper of their bags. This little gadget is so popular that some of my teacher’s back then have it. I was amused because they say it is like a pet where you’ll feed it whenever it gets hungry. You’ll know because it has a screen where it shows whether your pet is hungry or not. Also, you have to make it happy by giving your pet a toy. It can also die of course if you forget to feed it. Cool huh? Okey, I’ll admit there came a time I wanted one but good thing I immediately realized it was kinda girl thing.. haha! Not for me.

If you want to experience that kind of fun, I would say you can! There is a website that is something like the gadget that I was talking about called Banzai. Not only that, there’s a lot of free stuff also. Just go to the downloads section where you can download wallpapers and screen savers for both mac and windows.















You can try it for some time but you can purchase it online. It even has his own Myspace page!

ScreenLife Games is at it again. They launched a new Banzai game. Check it out:

Lastly, me! Talking in front of the crowd.. that was scary. Thanks Teng!

Pick up Lines

Me, Cheng2 and Sharon met yesterday and decided to go to the mall to have some snack. As we were waiting for Fern to arrive, I noticed a group of guys sitting in a corner and two girls in another table. I immediately sensed that they’re up to something since they’re whispering to each other while looking at the girls in the other table. Someone stood up from the guys and walked towards the two girls. I almost threw up when I heard the guy said “Hi, can I have your number?”.

If you think you can do better than the guy I saw at the mall yesterday, then join the Ultimate Flirting Championship, Extreme Style by VO5! But before you do that, don’t forget to wear your Victory Hair so you won’t be left behind.

Remembering Alzheimer's

I remember I saw a documentary one time in TV. It talked about remembering something. It talked about memories. It talked about the memories of the people inside the Home for the Aged. Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most common sickness that people admitted in that institution has. It’s very evident that we have to do something about it. And then I found out about this Alzheimer's Memory Walk.



This event is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research – and it calls on volunteers of all ages to become champions in the fight against Alzheimer's. There will be walks in more than 600 communities. A typical Memory Walk is a 2-3 mile walk held on a weekend morning in the fall. Teaming up with the Alzheimer's Association, we can walk with a purpose – and move us closer to a world without Alzheimer's. Together, we can MOVE a nation and go away from the dread of Alzheimer’s.

Never behind with Cisco

I’m taking my bachelors degree right now in one of the worst computer school (Bwahaha!) here in my place. If it were not because of their financial program probably I’m already finished with my degree. Anyways, even if it’s the most corrupt school in the country, there’s one program that I think is the best offer that they have, the CISCO Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) program which is embedded in our curriculum.

CISCO is the first and leading manufacturer of quality switches and routers. They have their own online academy where you can learn and study how the internet works and how you can create your own network of networks! Learn how to setup your own CISCO router manually or automatically. Create your own Wide Area Network.

I’m currently enrolled in their CCNA program which introduces me to the world of networking. We were taught to setup networks and networks of computers. We delved into cabling and some other cool networking stuff! We also tackled how to configure a CISCO router to connect to another router. Later on, we will be discussing user controls in different computer platforms.

And the best is yet to come.. If you’ll take and pass their online Cisco certification exam, you’ll have another plus on your resume! I myself am planning to take their Cisco certification exam when I’m done taking my 4 semesters in their online academy. Cisco will definitely help you to get successful in your career! You’ll never get behind with Cisco.

Sickly Week

After being absent for a week, finally I’m back. After our visit to Marilog, that afternoon I already felt that bad feeling. The feeling that I’m about to get sick.

Saturday – It was already 8:00 a.m. when I woke up. And when I tried to get up, I was dizzy. I knew right there and then that I am sick. I couldn’t eat well because all the food that I try to eat was tasteless. Grandma and Cheng² usually puts a wet towel on my forehead to lower my body temperature, and it did. Well at least for hours. But when the night comes, it rises up again. And I’ll start to feel cold.

Sunday – When I got up that morning, I immediately went to the Sala because I wanted to sit and watch TV (even if I’m so dizzy). “Hala! Ano yang nasa mukha mo?” my sister asked me. “Ha?, Bakit?” I asked her back and struggled to get to the mirror to have a look at myself. Little red rashes started to appear in my face. I was nervous that time because the idea of having a dengue started to appear in my mind. Considering the fact that my body temperature sometimes goes down and up again after a few hours, I started to get nervous (who wouldn’t?). So later that evening we decided that I will have my blood platelets checked early in the morning the next day.

Monday – We went to the lab to have my platelets checked. It’s only 157k, meaning low. If it get’s below 100k, I’ll start to have nosebleeds, or gum bleeds, Dengue. I wen't to a Doctor in the OPD of SPH to have the result of my blood test read and she told me that I have to be admitted because I have signs of Dengue (see?). But I refused. I went to the OPD section of the Davao Medical Center to have a second opinion. The doctors asked me where the rashes started. "Sa face no?" the doctors asked. I said yes. And the she asked me again, "..tapos sa body na pababa?" I said yes again. And the the doctor told her assistant to check something behind my ears. She touched something behind my ear, there's a lump behind it. "Ah, yes doc meron o.." her assistant told the doctor. "Ah, Rubella and sakit mo" the doctor told me. Without an idea what it is.. i said ok.. lol.

Later on, I searched the net to know what it is. Rubella, in lay-mans term is German Measles. I really got relieved when I've read about it.

It went on like that for the next 2 days. But I still visit the lab to monitor my platelets. Luckily it went up. To cut the story short, I got my energy back, my poor appetite back (lol). I’m ok now and hopefully won’t have any health problems anymore. The only thing that’s been bothering me now is my 3rd molar tooth. It’s growing the other way around and it’s painful when it’s scraping the walls of my mouth. It has to be removed.

UFC - Ultimate Flirting Championship



I’m planning to have my hair cut later this afternoon. Maybe later in the evening after attending my class. It is exam week right now. Anyways I remember when I was still at my elementary, I always cut classes when it’s Friday. Because Friday means it’s scouting. We'll line up at the field of the school and learn to march, tie a not, etc. Every time I attend these scouting sessions, there is only one thing that I don’t want to happen. The haircut inspection. I hate it! And then if you were not able to follow their prescribed haircut? Pahak is the term! Hehe! And that means you won’t be able to wear your Victory Hair.

Since you won’t be able to wear your Victory Hair, you’ll do some cute gestures to spark your crushes’ interest. You’ll clean up your face and wear that cute smile. Or there’s another way. You can use Extreme Style by VO5 or else, you’ll end up jealous and being that wimp on the corner.

And to those who are geniuses of flirting, you can flaunt your flirting techniques and try your flirting skill by playing or joining the Ultimate Flirting Championship (UFC). Try it! Ciao!

Multigrade

Hey! We went up in Marilog last Friday to visit a school which has a Multigrade classes in it. Actually, the only class they have is a Multigrade class. Meaning, grades 1 to 3 are joined together in one class.

One of the aussies here in our office is going to make a Multigrade Instructional Video.

We left from the office at 9 a.m. I’m still sleepy when we’re travelling so I slept. We visited the office of the district supervisor first before going the actual school to do a courtesy call.

I was surprised to see that there’s only one teacher in that school. The kids were very independent because the kids only require minimum supervision. The kid in grade 3 teaches the younger ones. I even saw students in partners. They teach each other and share what they’ve learned. It’s really amazing when you see instances like these where people help each other. Even parents help the teacher to supervise the class.

It’s also inspiring when you see their learning materials because it’s improvised. They used twigs to be used as a material to teach the kids Math.

Anyway, so much for that. I have to do this best payday loan opp.

Cinemalaya 2008

It's past 5 in the afternoon. I was bored and waiting for my class to start. I was browsing the net that time when my phone rang. I have no idea who owns the number but still, i answered the call.

"Hello? Good afternoon.." I greeted. "Hi, 'to po ba yung number ni Mona?" answered the person on the other end. "Hindi po, kaibigan ko po sya. Pwede po bang malaman kung anong kailangan mo sa kanya?"

"Ah hindi, this is Ruth from Cinemalaya. Gusto ko lang sana syang iinform na pumasok yung film nya sa kids section".
After hearing this, my heart jumped! And she asked.. "Meron ba kayong DVD playable copy nung film nya? Kasi avi yung pinadala nyang DVD eh."


"Ahhmm, ipapadala na lang po namin. Kelan nyo po ba kailangan?"

"Sa sabado na kasi ang screening nung film nya sa CCP so kung pwede mapadala nyo bukas."

"Ok po.. sige po salamat! Bye!"



Yipee! My good friend Mona's film "A Step for My Dream" just got through the Cinemalaya International Film Festival 2008! I was shooting my short film in Ampatuan while she was shooting hers in Paglat. We're both members of the Micromedia Productions! My kudos to her! I'm happy for you Monay! I hope they'll have refinance mortgage service for her.. lol!

Good catch

I went to a friend/Film Director who was shooting his full length film here in Davao (he's also a DavaoeƱo by the way). I was told that they're quarters is at Felis Beach Resort and they'll just go around the nearby communities to look for a place fit for the scene he needs.

While waiting for the text reply to know where they are in the area, I strolled around Felis and I got these images.. care to comment?

Sunrise shoot at Pawikan Sanctuary

I woke up 3am in the morning to prepare for our sunrise shoot in the Pawikan Sanctuary in Punta Dumalag. I miss called Cheng² to wake her up and also Adi who'll be giving us a ride to go there. I didn't even bother to eat because the call time was 4:30 in the morning, it's already 4:00 and I'm still fixing things up.

I fetched Cheng² first before going to the rendezvous at Ecoland. When we arrived,I saw Wacky, Epong, Chattee, Christian, Monique and her brother Mikee, Adi who's inside the mart waiting for his coffee, Lyan who's sitting at a corner and observing what's happening around him. Mark, Mommy Jojie and Doc Deb was discussing something while drinking coffee.

It was still dark when we arrived at the Pawikan Sanctuary. No one was there besides us and the insects behind the bushes. The sound of the calm waves greeted us.

We setup our gears and started clicking away.

Here's some of the pictures I took.

Calm


Serene

Taken at 4:45 a.m.

Anyway, later that day we watched Manny Pacuiao's battle against David Diaz of the US. Again, Manny defeated the American adopted Diaz through a 9th round KO. The first Asian to claim a 4 title belts in 4 different weight divisions! congrats Manny! It's ok that youre face will be beaten. You have insurance online anyway.

Believe

I was on my way home when we were passing by an overpass, I saw a crowd watching a man who was sitting at the center. He’s performing the disappearing egg trick using that black pouch. I’m amazed that he can still attract and catch the attention of the people passing by. I can’t imagine what would be their reaction if David Copperfield will perform in front of them. Making huge things disappear right in front of you. Those days were gone..

Gone until this guys showed up. This guy I know is different. He made his way to the top by floating between two buildings, done the illusion that some of the respected illusionist made. He even walked on water! It’s Criss Angel and in Las Vegas, he’ll debut his Cirque Du Soleil performance called CRISS ANGEL Believe at the Luxor Hotel and will be performing live.

It’ll be exciting for sure, but unfortunately, I can’t watch his show. Not enough cheese to get me to Las Vegas. But as for you readers from Las Vegas, you can join their Text Message contest by typing in “Believe” and send it to 22122 to win 2 tickets to “Criss Angel Believe”. Goodluck and hopefully you’ll be able to watch this amazing act.
