Writing 365 [1] : Office Xmas Riot : Oppa Gangnam Style

being the first post of the year, would like to share to you guys these amazing videos we created for our Christmas party. Short backstory : Our office decided to have a video contest, divided into 4 teams (gray, blue, yellow and green), each should create a music video using the Psy’s Oppa Gangnam Style. It’s a bit of torture hearing that song many times (during post production) but hey, we enjoyed filming the crazy antics of our officemates and have a rare chance to see our big bosses dance. Also, it gave me a chance to learn more shooting techniques from Joemar and Carlo. They’re my freakin’ awesome officemates.

Funny thing is all four artists belongs to different teams and we are tasked to shoot and edit each team’s entry. Creating a little pressure and competition in the air. We even came up with an agreement that we will kick and punch whoever won the contest. haha.

Anyway, Christmas Party came and we are all dressed up as our favorite cartoon characters, it’s about time to  check out all 4 videos. All i can say is, All were amazing. Funny Amazing. Check it out:

Let’s start with Yellow Team

another funny video from Green Team

Psy’s Untold Story by Blue Team

and Our Video, Go Gray Team!!!

if you’re asking who won this competition?, just watch this crazy video hahaha

okay, I think Carlo will kill me if he learns that i shared this video, on our defense, we’re drunk and happy. haha oh well, all videos are amazing and all winners. Everybody worked very hard and gained friends and  extraordinary experience.

GRAY TEAM!!!

So that’s all for now, Start 2013 right.

Godspeed

2012! :D

clean

2012 is a blast.

Life’s been good to me so far.  I thought I wont be able to bounce back from the curse of 2011 but I was wrong.  Wise Decisions led me to a new job, new career path, able to gain new skills and meet new friends. It may  sounds sissy  but I would like to thank everyone that contributed something in my life this 2012. Yes, this is kinda melodramatic but this is the best way I think I can thank everybody. Apologies if i gave you a hard time sometimes but I promise that I am willing to learn from my mistakes and opt not to do it again.

At age of 25, I must say that there’s still more things I haven’t crossed out from my bucket list. I’ve been busy lately on random projects,school related and personal, but I didn’t regret it since I learned so much during the process. But this 2013, I will make it more jampacked thanthis year.

Priorities on my bucket list : Learn how to play drums (Im serious about this one.), learn how to drive a car. Learn Digital Photography from the experts (no more shortcuts, more practice) learn new softwares, Back to Graduate School, more travel , (join a band? kung papalarin wahehe), start learning about housing loan etc.

Resolutions? Less Drinking, More Writing. Right amount of partying, more exercise. Spend wisely. Less Procrastination.  More secrets. Learn how to play a devil’s advocate. Learn how to say NO. More artworks. More blog entries. More Practice on writing, photography, editing and other interests. Lastly, learn to stick to these resolutions

Well, that’s for now guys.

Till then and Happy New Year! Cheers!

DALOY. GS. STAT.

O yeah! pasukan na naman. oras na para sulitin ang nalalabing araw ng summer. it’s been a year since I  quit working on a callcenter and pursue my masters. I thought it’ll be hard,Di ako nagkakamali.

Yes it is hard but its nothing compared to the rewards I got after I finished my first school year. I gained friends and colleagues (and useful contacts hehe) and knowledge about other fields of communication  aside from research and mass media. Not to mention many useful tips on career and personal life. And after my first sem, I totally fell in love with graduate school.

Anyway, weeks from now, enrollment na naman at balita ko may statistics kami na subject, yeah I know it is required to take it but I’m an average guy who get nightmares every time I try to solve a math problem. ironically, ang dati kong mga trabaho ay may kinalaman sa research, una kong trabaho ay bilang data entry sa Philippine Information Agency noong 2007, naging Researcher noong 2009 at naging Research Analyst last year. ‘Di ko parin maisip kung paano ko nasurvive at natapos ang mga workload ko ng ‘di masyado inaalala ang math, siguro dahil sa SPSS o yung mga ‘di ko nakikitang nilalang slash mumu sa opisina pag nag-OOT ako (malamang SPSS). Aaminin ko, nagdalawang isip akong mag enrol muli pero kilala ko sarili ko, walang natatapos pag oras na tinamad na ako. kaya nagpapasalamat ako at may naging kaibigan ako sa GS na dahilan na mag enrol ako…(sa totoo lang, pinipilit nila ako kasi, mahal ang tutorial hehe joke)

Isa ring kinatuwa ko sa graduate school ay ang mga ssignment at projects. Alam ko, hindi lang ako ang minsang nagsabi na “haist, namiss ko ang eskwela”. pero at least ako, gumawa ako ng paraan upang makabalik muli at damhin ang matagal ko nang namimiss. Oh ang mga production work, kahit na school requirement lang siya, iba pa rin talaga ang pag gawa ng project sa school. Aminado ako na karamihan sa aking mga kaklase ay naka establish na ng career sa TV at radyo, pero kahit sila, nagsasabing iba talaga pag hindi pera ang katapat ng isang proyekto kundi isang magandang grado.

nakadalwang dokyumentaryo na kami sa unang taon namin sa Graduate school at iba talaga ang hirap at sarap na aming dinanas. Hirap dahil sa mga lokasyon, ang pagshoot at pag edit. pero sarap naman dahil sa bawat taong nakakasalamuha at nakausap namin ay bagong kaalaman ang aming nababaon sa aming pag-uwi.

Naalala ko tuloy aking Coach Miko sa huling callcenter na napagtrabahuan, minsan niyang diniscus ang curve of learning, (tama ba ang term?) na ‘wag matakot kung may bagong bagay na parating sa buhay dahil marami kang matututunan rito. kahit pahapyaw lang niyang nabanggit sa isa sa mga maraming team huddle namin, isa iyon sa mga memorable ideas na nakuha ko sa mga boss ko.

“DALOY” ang pamagat ng pangalawang dokyu na aming nagawa. Inabot ng dalawang semestre ang anim na katao (kasama ang aming propesor) na makumpleto ito. Nagsimula ang ideya sa isang bali-balita na maaring mawalan ng tubig ang kamaynilaan sa 2015. nagresearch at naglakbay. ayun, nalaman namin ang katotohanan ukol sa isyung ito (o medyo close lang sa katotohanan…kayo na ang humusga).

Sa tulong ng mga panayam, bidyo clippings at datos mula sa iba’t ibang pag-aaral ay nabuo ang DALOY.

So that’s for now guys.

So Till Then and Godbless 😀


Vinz Louie Strikes Again [1]

Just got home from work.

Tired.

Excited to catch some sleep when I noticed something written on my workdesk.

I don’t know if I’ll get mad that there’s some random “graffiti” on my desk or be glad to see my youngest brother’s handwriting. I must admit, his handwriting improved a lot compared the last time I saw him write his assignments. At the age of five, I think it is quite an achievement.

Beside it is his medal. I just realized that today is his graduation day (or according to his teacher Girlie : “Moving Up Ceremony”). what a nice surprise from a 5 year old naughty kid. Another achiever like his older brother Larry, who passed the board exam for Mechanical Engineers. Dalawa na ang Engineer Nool. hehe.

Now I wonder kung ano ang magiging propesyon ni louie in the future? hmmm 😀

I also wonder kung paano matatanggal ‘to? Red permanent marker pa naman gamit nya dito T.T

So that’s for now guys.

So Till Then and Godbless 😀


Backlogged T.T

Yes! summer is here!

it means, no more classes. Saturdays are mine again. Don’t get me wrong. Taking masters is fun but i miss hanging out here in my pad, sketching, writing and  waiting for my pals to drop by.

Oh well. I have so many things to tell you but still can’t write about them because I have to wait till next week (and because of this Stupid connection. thanks a lot Smart bro or should i say, Dumb bro!)

Several new addition to my growing library like this one “The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need” Graphic Novel by Daniel Pink and TOKYOPOP’s Rob Ten Pas which I finished reading, before buying. 😀

MV Fuji Maru Experience as part of the press  during the 38th SSEAYP Ship for  Southeast Asian Youth Program from Japan.

Hullabaloos while doing my thesis on Cross Cultural Communication entitled “Communication patterns of the Relocated Urban Poor Students  and
San Jose del Monte Bulacan students and faculty and how these
affect the students’ academic performances.” (isa lang masasabi ko..nakakagigil XD)

Our documentary about the impending water scarcity in Metro manila by 2015 entitled “DALOY”, it took group almost 2 sems (and our jobs) to finish this thing. Pero worth naman. CMMA here we come! 😀

Surprise visit sa dating office.  Nice to see my research colleagues again. well, nasurprise din ako to see some of my artworks framed and hanging in a well lit gallery. those artworks are for the Anti Drug Courier campaign of Philippine Information Agency and PDEA. the exhibit started Feb 1, PIA’s 25th anniversary. PNOY was there (and grace Lee too hehe) to grace the event. Those artworks and some infographics I created for the campaign are included on the entry sent by the company to the 47th Anvil Awards (Oscars of Public relations). And yes, we won a Merit Award for the category – Public Relations Program on a Sustained Basis. Sayang, walang photo op with the trophy.

Also they gave me a copy of the published 113th Philippine Independence day Commemorative book which I worked and billed as a researcher.  Second time my name was published in a book 😀

Photos from ToyCon 2011.2 months before Komikon 2012 then Toycon 2012 one month after 😀 countdowns. (must have new dslr by then)
ehem ehem…
Sessions with Abby and Val 2.0, my second attempt to incorporate graphics to my shots, it;s been a while since the last time i tried the approach i used in PUP Photohike Doodle project, still can’t upload albums in my facebook due to incompetent internet connections, again thanks Smartbro. para kang cinderella, May curfew XD
hmmm. hope I could write again…soon 😀

So that’s for now guys.

So Till Then and Godbless
