I got the best shots of this rally dangling on to a safe gap of razor-wire-adorned iron fence. It was a sweet concoction of art, passion, endurance and a bit of insanity but when finally people at the other side of the world see them–ahh, that’s when my lonesome work becomes an awesome adventure!
My equipment took a beating on this job. Nevertheless, however insane, it’s an ultimate assignment that I would gladly take on again. 🙂
Filming the Datu (tribal chief) and council of the Higaonon tribe (Lumad) in Libona, Bukidnon of Mindanao with Global Fire Productions [UK] for the Filipino-Canadian firm Rocky Mountain Arabica Coffee Company’s documentary series.
Now this is a gem for a never-graduating film student like me. This find is the most comprehensive film education I have stumbled upon so far. A film analysis of one of my favorite films, story and cinematography-wise, “Prisoners” in a 30-minute intensive video essay by Must See Films.

Being a video journalist is equally challenging and rewarding but for this particular assignment, the sadness is just too overwhelming to compensate.
