  2. How To Do A Self-Facial (July, 2014)

    Host, Director, Scriptwriter, Editor

    If you loved my "Paano Maglinis Ng Kubeta" video, then you’ll love this self-facial video also! This is a hosting project for my Performance And Presentation class with Mrs. Patty Laurel-Filart. It was super duper fun and awkward shooting this, hehehehehe. I hope it brings a bit of lightness to all our stressful lives.

    On an (existential?) note, making this video made me realize that if I were to have a hosting career, I would gladly fit well for comedic, fast-paced shows like this!

    Also, just to clarify, Pleasuring Yourself was created only for the purposes of this project. It is NOT a real show. But it should be, hehe wink wink.


  3. Ateneo Women’s Judo Team, Recruitment Video (June, 2014)


    If you look through my portfolio, you will see that I have experience in motion editorials, which essentially are very fashion-inclined. Prior to this video, however, I have never done a motion video that featured sports, much more the kicks and throws of martial arts. Having said that, they make for such interesting opportunities to play around with cinematography and editing! I hope this little recruitment video becomes my little contribution to bringing to light the different sports in the Ateneo. I really want to do more of these videos for them!


  4. The 20th Ateneo Heights Writers Workshop — Mookie Katigbak Lacuesta (June, 2014)


    Getting to know the literary journeys of some of the greatest writers in the Ateneo was such an honor. As I was editing their interviews, I could not help but feel fascinated by the transformation that these interviewees went through. This online series touches on the nostalgia and rawness that comes with remembering the initial sparks of one’s passion.

    Aside from Ms. Mookie Katigbak-Lacuesta’s interview, you may also view videos of other past AHWW fellows:
    - Nica Bengzon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klH2KY3TETM
    - Vida Cruz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHEeSEy7w-4
    - Jam Pascual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYB-L1Y2GXw
    - Dr. Edgar Samar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkoi0twERfg

    All of the videos listed above were also edited by me!


  5. The 20th Ateneo Heights Writers Workshop — Teaser: Past AHWW Fellows (June, 2014)


    As a member of the executive board of Heights, I truly believe that there are literary geniuses waiting to be discovered amidst the Ateneo community. I hope this video encourages the passionate poets to submit their applications and, like the past AHWW fellows in the video, make history in the 20th Ateneo Heights Writers Workshop.


  6. Omnitude: Air, Motion Editorial (June, 2014)

    Creative Director, Editor

    The Culprit Productions presents the second Motion Editorial of the Omnitude series! The beautiful Rae Belle Dennis is our muse in this video, but we wanted to capture a look for her that was different from the other bubbly girl-next-door projects that she has handled before. We created a more natural, raw, and vulnerable look that fits perfectly with the message of the series.

  7. ABS-CBN Kapamilya Internship: TV Production (May-June, 2014)

    Top 1 Intern, Best in Creative Concept (Narrative), Best in Digital Media Concept

    Ever since I was young, I knew that I wanted to conquer the world of television. And so, I applied for an internship at ABS-CBN, the Philippines’ largest TV station.

    But this was not your ordinary internship, for all the right reasons. I came into ABS-CBN thinking that I would do typical Production Assistant work: making cups of coffee, photocopying scripts, and so on. Instead, ABS-CBN decided to create a once-in-a-lifetime curriculum, and we were the very first batch in history to experience it!

    We were greeted by a star-studded orientation, featuring the different celebrities representing the TV production units of the station. We were then assigned to our respective programs for our hands-on immersion. Mine, of course, was none other than Kris TV. Only in this internship can I say that my first assignment in the real world was to work with THE Ms. Kris Aquino. Moreover, instead of just PA work, ABS-CBN decided to fittingly divide our immersion into three basic parts: Pre-Production, Production, and Post-Production. I was able to participate through the whole process, from the brainstorming meeting, down to the final hours of editing.

    Aside from the technical work, ABS-CBN also acknowledged the creative minds in us. Amidst the constant complaints that Philippine programs are too repetitive, I like to think that the Kapamilya Internship’s philosophy is this: Ok, we acknowledge that Philippine TV is repetitive. But instead of making a blog post about it, pitch your new idea to us! It might just be the next big thing.

    They gave us talks and workshops on Creative Writing and Digital Media. With the guidance of our mentors, we were then tasked to create concepts: one for a new TV program (with help from THE Mr. Ricky Lee), and another for a smartphone app. A lucky few would then be selected to pitch their ideas to the ABS-CBN management — Director Lauren Dyogi, Mrs. Charo Santos-Concio, Mrs. Cory Vidanes, etc. — in the hope that their pitches would be turned into an actual program or app.

    Not only was my team selected to pitch to the management, but, during our graduation, we were also awarded with the two biggest awards: Best in Creative Concept (Narrative) and Best in Digital Media.

    Most importantly, I was fortunate enough to be selected as the Top 1 Kapamilya Intern of the entire program!

    I extend the greatest amounts of gratitude to everyone who made the whole Kapamilya Internship possible! The future of Philippine television is in good hands. This was officially the best summer vacation of my life, and not once did anyone order me to make them a cup of coffee!

    Assured employment c/o Direk Lauren Dyogi, here I come!!!!!


  8. Omnitude: Earth, Motion Editorial (May, 2014)

    Creative Director, Editor

    The Culprit Productions the first of the Omnitude series, featuring the very youthful and beautiful Bianca Duncan. Omnitude tells the story of a young woman finding the different aspects of her identity, and I can think of no other way to begin it than with the fresh energy that Bianca gives. I am so thankful to be working with my fellow Culprits — Isabel Quinones and Trisha Duncan — and with the eloquent narration of Gianna Llanes. This is just the beginning of our production team. Stay tuned for more to come!
