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.
There are a lot of tutorials and reading materials out there that teach scriptwriting but this video by TheDVWorkshop is so simple and comprehensive that you can make a great story out of your materials in no time. Even for those who deal with different contents for every project, it’s nice to have this in your folder to refresh your techniques on your next documentary.
