Mr Ryann Elumba, Shine de Guzman, Patricia, Klei, Meryl, Jolas and I were present. Sir James shared with us the good news that Sun Cellular has to offer in Mindanao.

Sun Cellular has also recently partnered with Smart Communications as you can see in their recent advertisment featuring one of my favorite songs "Collide." Three big networks team up to give all their subscribers one gigantic offer that is unmatched in the industry! The new Trio 20 call and text promo underscores the power of convergence as Sun Cellular joins the PLDT Group, paving the way for products that give the best possible value for your money by connecting you reliably to 65 million people! If you’re a Sun, Smart or Talk ‘N Text subscriber, just text TRIO20 to 2477 to avail of this latest product.

If you find it hard to look for a sun signal, you can change the setting of your SIM to access the Smart signal. But no worries Sun has intensified their signal in Mindanao. Sir James also suggested the Postpaid Plan of Sun Cellular. So what's new with the postpaid plan? For only Php250.00 per month, subscribers to this new postpaid plan includes unlimited Sun-to-Sun texts, four hours of Sun-to-Sun calls, 500 texts to other networks plus a free Samsung E1080 phone. This plan is perfect for those who want to enjoy unlimited texting and still be able to call their friends and loved ones from time to time. Also with the generous allocation of texts to other networks, this plan will also attract those who want to stay in touch but do not want to spend too much. For more info, visit suncellular.com.ph.

Isn't it awesome? Switch to Sun now and get the most out of your budget! Here are some photos during the meet-up :D Thank you so much Sun Cellular for the swags!

WMSU BSN Grad Ball 2012 Teaser

1:21 AM
First of all, congratulations to all the graduates of batch 2012! It has been a long journey and this event is a milestone that will ever change your life. It's a start of another chapter in your life. This year the Nursing Student Organization of WMSU trusted Seed Interactive to be the official photo and video team for their Graduation activities. They will have a Graduation Ball on April 10 at Astoria Plaza. The theme will be V3: Vintage vs Vegas.

For the video trailer, we shot it at several locations with two leading female characters representing the two different themes. For "Vintage", Lei (Ms Nursing) played as a 50's pin up girl who was getting prepared for a night-out with his boyfriend/fiance. For Vegas, Maritoni (Top Model 2010 2nd Runner Up) is a socialite strolling in the Fabulous City of Las Vegas and playing poker with her mates. Last year, we got to work with Maritoni and the past winners of Top Model where we produced the first ever fashion film made here in Zamboanga. The supporting male characters were also featured in Seed Interactive's page, when we had a photoshoot of them for Victorio Modeling Agency. Here's the first edit of the video trailer.

Princess Carlyle @ 18 as Barbie

3:41 PM
This is one of my favorite debut teasers so far. Princess is also a regionalian like me and is currently studying at Siliman University. The concept of this video is mainly about having fun, being young and breaking free.

But to achieve that we placed a lot of effort in putting her inside the box. We created a simple set at their home with a white backdrop. Then I added the graphics in after affects. We also included her school affiliation but still being cheerful and fun. So here is Princess in her debut role as Barbie. :D

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living,
It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.
Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities."

On Sunsets, Long Exposure, and Planets

1:45 PM
March 12, 2010. We had a video shoot at the Blue Beach resort late in the afternoon. Thanks to the power outage courtesy of Zamcelco, i was bored to death so i played with the camera. I tried to take photos of the shore and seascapes in low shutter speed (long exposure) to have that dreamy effect. Here are some of my takes. More after the jump.

Eerie dead plant in twilight colors:D

Meet the most popular tree in wedding photos.

It was getting dark so I amped the exposure to 15 sec. Lovely colors :D

In long exposure, the sea becomes foggy and dreamy.

This is a plane passing by in 13 sec exposure

It wasn't completely dark yet but I noticed these two stars that were very bright. I framed the two stars and also took a long exposure photo of it. Seems like they were the only stars in the sky.


Few days after, i learned in NatGeo's website that those two stars are actually the planets Venus (right) and Jupiter. The two planets seem to line up in the sky, which scientists call a conjuction. The conjuction of the two planets was at their closest last thursday (March 15). I just realized that i took a photo of the event days before. Now, you look at the sky from 6PM to 8PM you can still see these bright stars, i mean planets, straight up until they set on the west.

Finally, here's a photo of the dark sky. Failed to set the focus. XD

Anyways, here are more photos of the conjuction i found in the net. Awesome stuff!








The stars lean down to kiss you
as i lay awake and miss you...

 
end.
