Animahenasyon is on!

10:47 PM

Natotopak ako kaya gusto kong mag-blog! I just came from the opening program of Animahenasyon at the Gateway, Araneta Center. I met a couple of well-known people in the animation industry during the exclusive event. I met Pocholo the "Voice Master", the voice talent behind so many characters in tv and movies. He even gave us a sample of his voices like the one in the hotdog advertisement. He was the voice behind the puppets and the voice over. I also met the founder of the Animation Council of the Philippines Institute (ACPI), Ms. Grace Dimaranan and the program organizer of Animahenasyon, Michael Ko (see the photo above). I also saw Mr. Edwin of Cutting Edge whom I met when he went to Zamboanga. We had cocktails at the Cinema lobby followed by the Opening films. The first is "Ligtas Likas" a short film about environmental protection. The other is one of the 7 part documentary about Philippine Animation produced by Tuldok Animation and which will be released next year. It was inspiring watching the films and meeting people.

Anyways, aside from the opening program we also went to ADMU and front of PBB house. ^^,

I will be at Animahenasyon 2009!

1:12 AM

I am really excited to have my fourth trip out of Zamboanga this year. I will attend Animahenasyon which is a four-day event where I can watch amazing works of stdents, amateurs and professional animators and participate symposiums about the animation industry. The highlight of the event is the Awards night where entries will be given recognition for being the best in their category. Fortunately our team had 3 entries which made it to the finals. My entry is "Mayari", a stop-motion animation which I and my team created last year for our midterm project. The second one is Tennyl's Demo Reel. And finally, the 1st episode of Guatsinanggo, headed by our director, Jervin Yap. Actually, I am not expecting our entries to win because in our category (Short Film), there are almost 20 finalists! I will be really really happy if a miracle will happen!

Anyways, I want to thank our teachers for supporting us! To Sir Romz and Sir Tookie for guiding us always! Thank you also to our chair, Ma'am Ai for the financial assistance and showing your support to our batch! I will be with my 6 other friends and 3 teachers on the trip. We will depart on Tuesday, Nov 24 in the morning and arrive on Sunday, Nov 29 in the afternoon. The event will be at the Gateway Mall Araneta Center. Well, I hope that everything will be alright in our 5-day trip! Godbless to the team!

America's Next Top Petite Model is Nicole Fox!

12:51 AM
For the first time, ANTM casted potential models less than 5'7 in height. After 13 episodes, the results were out! Nicole Fox from Louisville, Colorado grabbed the title of America's Next Top Model and the first petite model winner. Known for her awkwardness and signature poses, Nicole was labeled as a high-fashion model by the judges. From week 1, she showed model potential for mastering her angles despite her proportions. Nicole also had the most number of first calls at the panel, if not, second from the top. It was a great season filled with great models inside and out. It only shows that height does not matter when it comes to modeling. It takes determination, passion and skill to be on the top.
