Onat and Jen SDE

2:37 PM
For me, this is probably our best work so far :) There's just a time when everything falls perfectly into place. We have a great couple, a great video team and suppliers who works to make this wedding perfect. I want to elaborate more about Onat and Jen's SDE but, i'll just quote the words of our boss, Trebz:

"Some clients or couples always ask on how can we make their wedding videos like of Richard & Maya, Maricar & Richard Poon or similar to any celebrity weddings, our opinion was simple, weddings are unscripted... we're just there to document it... the flow of the entire preps and ceremony will depend on how beautiful your wedding will be... though we can't make you like those of superstars but we can try our best to capture those moments and make it a special one... Here's a sample of pure happiness and love, simple yet intimate... We bring you Onat & Jen's Same Day Edit.."

Timmy and Marian SDE

7:34 PM
Presenting the first ever aerial shots used in a Zamboanga Wedding! Timmy and Marian were such a fun couple. During her wedding day, Marian is just filled with lots of emotions. She's so happy and positive as she was having her makeup. She said that she felt like she's the most beautiful girl in the world. She smiled ceaselessly and was just super excited for the wedding to start. While recording a short message for his soon to be husband, she can't stop her tears. Timmy, on the other hand, was sweating while giving his message. He was filled with mixed emotions.

The couple were also fortunate to have the first wedding video featuring aerial shots taken using a drone equipped with an HD camera. Vista de Lente is the first to offer this kind of video shots and I'm overwhelmed to be the one to edit the SDE. Thanks Sir Reymond for the opportunity and im looking forward to more projects! Watch Timmy and Marian's SDE here.

After the month long Zambo Crisis, i'm back in doing SDE with my team, Trebor Z Audio Visuals. Alfrith and Michelle's big wedding was attended by their families and friend not only from Zamboanga but from other cities and countries, too. Nothing can hinder love, indeed.

This is my first time to witness a church wedding in the evening. It started at 6PM and reception already started at 9. Nevertheless, the wedding was such a unique one. The reception was held at the Poolside of Regency and the pool was transformed into a stage with fountain. There was also a spectacular fireworks show that really made their wedding very romantic. I love the stage setup by Raymond Rabanal, too. Congratulations to Patrick and Grace! Here is the same-day edit!

ChrisH Vexel Art

8:29 PM
It has been almost a year since i did my last "artwork" which is my poster design entry for Animahenasyon. I also did some doodles for the 30 day drawing challenge which is still unfinished. I posted those works in my doodle blog but whenever i ran out of ideas i tend to get stuck XD.

Recently, ive been watching US shows like SYTYCD, Glee and ANTM. I'm an active tweet peep, too! I followed celebrities and enjoyed reading their tweets about their daily lives. One day, I stumbled upon this photo of Chris Hernandez (@Iam_ChrisH), a "model-testant" of America's Next Top Model Cycle 20, which he posted in twitter. I like the photo because of the lighting and colors which i thought will be a good vexel/vector art. I like the hair style and his expression, too.

Surprisingly, I was inspired to work on it one day. I used Adobe Illustrator to "vectorize" it. I almost gave up when i started doing the hair. It took me more than 5 hours to finish it but i was very happy it came out nice. I rested and decided to continue it the following day. After three days, I finally finished it! The most challenging part is where the magenta and cyan blend. The hair and lips are my favorite part of it :)

1:34 AM
The spate of events that unfolded and continue to unfold in Zamboanga City are very heartbreaking and upsetting.Homes have been destroyed, lives have been broken and dreams have been lost.

Zamboanga City paid a high cost to defend our freedom, independence and sovereignty, and our heart goes out to the residents of Zamboanga, to the families and children who remain in distress and who live in fear for their present and for their future.

Our hearts go out to the fallen soldiers and policemen who gave up their lives for this fight, to every wife who lost a husband, to every child who lost a father and to parents who lost a son.

Through all this, Zamboanga City remains undaunted and undefeated. As we prepare to take the long road to recovery, we call on every Filipino to help pick up the pieces left in the wake of this tragedy.

Time and again, we have proven that we are all heroes. Let us prove to the world then, that spirit of bayanihan is alive and well. Let us prove again that for every time we are brought to our knees, the Filipino rises up to be stronger and better than before.

Let us prove again that together, no Juan is left behind.

Zamboanga City and her people need you. Let us helpbuild a better Zamboanga.
One Flag. One Philippines. One Zamboanga City.

Jon and Jean on Chalkboard (Prenup)

6:59 PM
Hi! Just want to share this collab work with Vista de Lente Photography for a Prenup Shoot. They have this concept where the couple looks like they are in a chalkboard background. The original idea is to make a set where the drawings are really drawn in a huge black canvas. But they had only little time so we thought of Plan B which is to shoot them in a blank black backdrop then the drawing will be digitally composited in post-production. I really commend the couple for pushing through this concept and for having the patience and effort in lying down and doing these poses. Check out the last photo for the process in creating these images.

It's not every muslim wedding that a song like this is chosen for their SDE. Nabz and Chang's love song is "Always" by Switchfoot. From their entrance to their wedding highlight video, this song really defined their love for each other. They both work in Saudi and had their wedding here in Zamboanga. An emotion-filled family was there to witness as they walk along the aisle. It is indeed a precious moment for the couple as they stood side by side with their family and friends around.

ADZU Centennial Commemorative Stamps

10:19 PM
So I was googling for "ADZU 100" images and I stumble upon Philpost's website and discovered that they produced Commemorative stamps for Ateneo de Zamboanga's Centennial Celebration. I was so excited to see the official Centennial emblem included in the design. It's my first time to see my work in a stamp and it feel so cool! I hope they still produce this and i will surely buy a lot of this! In years, stamp collectors will go crazy finding these rare stamps. Anyways, it's always great to see your work around. Though I don't get that much credit for doing the logo, I know i'll be forever be part of AdZU's history.

AAO Freshmen Survival Tract

10:22 PM
It's already June which means it's time for school! For the first time i'm not gonna be the eager student who's very excited for the opening classes after a long summer break. Now, i'm a teacher and it's just as exciting! In Ateneo, we always welcome the freshmen so that they will feel at home in the campus. Before the class starts, the freshies will be asked to attend the Orientation Seminar or OrSem.

OrSem is basically a two-day bootcamp that will orient them about the college life, the campus facilities and things they have to know about their college/department, clubs/organizations and academic stuff. To wrap the OrSem, the college student council and all student organizations will have a welcoming party at the night before the first day of class begins. It's a really fun tradition at school that will really make a mark in your college life.

The student council also publishes a booklet on how to survive college life. It is called "Ateneo Freshmen Survival Tract" or AFST which contains messages from heads, information about the campus facilities/buildings, retention policy, and fun trivia about the culture in Ateneo. As a layout artist, I was lucky to produce the AFST during 2008 and 2009. You can see the 2009 AFST here.

Today, other departmental organizations produce their own FST's too like the Accountancy Academic Org. They assigned the Publications committee headed by Jam Quintanes to make their very own AFST which they called AAOFST (I suggested the title, hehe). I was commission to design and layout their 12-page booklet which contains AAO's Calendar of Activities, Retention Policy, Grading System, Photos, and Tips on how to survive Accountancy. Here's the cover design inspired by vintage victorian typography.

The book will be distributed to the AAO freshies this upcoming OrSem on June 7. I'm excited to see the final print and hopefully they will like my designs. Click the image above to see my deviantArt page and hit the fave button if u like :D

After 10 years of marriage, Hannah and Reynier renewed their vows with the blessing of the church on May 30, 2013. At an early age Hannah took the challenge of motherhood and now they have three sons and a lovely daughter. Hannah has a British ancestry so they incorporated a tea-party like theme in their prenup shoot and decors. Check out the lovely family's special moment in this video.

Vector Text Effects

5:49 PM
The summer classes has come to an end and it has been a fun time for me. For my Digital Multimedia class, I  pushed them to the advanced level of Photoshop and introduced them to Vector illustration using Adobe Illustrator. For their final project, I taught them how to use the basics of flash to create a simple portfolio showcasing their outputs in class. Here are some my favorite works using illustrator to create text effects.

If you want to know how they created their works, click on their name to be redirected to their blogs. Aside from using softwares, I also make them write blogs so that they will realize their new learning and, perhaps, some insights while doing the activity. I see a great potential from these kids and I hope that they will really pursue this career in web development and someday become professionals. Drop by some comments below to show your love :)
