Just by being on this page, you probably already know how much I love food. By profession though, I make videos. I shoot a lot of client work ranging from web video content, viral videos, behind the scenes videos and the usual, event coverage. There are times though that my two loves get the chance to intersect. I’m starting a production company with some friends called, Seabiscuit Films and this is one of many collaborations we have up our sleeves.

We shot a couple of videos with The Fat Kid Inside, Erwan Heussaff and this is the first video in the series that I directed. The spiffy clean graphics are from Carina Santos and the songs I used for the video are from Some Gorgeous Accident. I had so much fun working on this considering the fact I got full creative control.

The video documents Erwan’s Grilled Mackerel Scad (Galunggong) with a singed Caprese salad so you can watch and learn. Don’t forget to click the link to get specifics!

Hello!

I haven’t posted about this because I haven’t reconciled with the fact that I’m on a show. I’m used to being behind the camera, not in front of it but here it goes. I’m shooting and hosting a web series called Takaw Tingin. It’s a video project that aims to showcase Filipino culture and local destinations with food as its major highlight. I have 6 episodes coming out in total and the first one’s up. I apologize in advance for the second-hand embarrassment you’ll feel after watching my awkward self trying to not be awkward on tape.

Click the photo to watch! This was shot with a Canon Vixia HFM50 and a Canon S95. I’d like to thank Eyedress for letting me use Teen Spirits for the OBB; Nicky Daez, Sabs Bengzon and Jason Conanan for shooting with me and Roel Mendoza for the edit.

I checked this space today and it finally hit that I haven’t updated in two weeks. In the internet world, 14 days equates to light years so hi. I’ve been a bit busy with life (aka running the house) and work so I haven’t had the chance to write a lot. In an effort to update about more than just food, this post is about my job.

I’m a freelance filmmaker by trade. I’m usually reluctant to say filmmaker because I’ve never actually shot on film. The video above is something I directed for Sunsilk sometime late last year.

I was also fortunate enough to work on a big online Dove campaign. Two out of the three videos were just released so I’d like to share them.


I’m thankful the year’s taken to a busy start. There’s a lot more coming up that have yet to be launched but I’ll be posting them for sure. Right now, I’m busy brainstorming for a couple of online campaigns, working on pitch material and looking for music videos to direct (so if you have any leads, point them this way).

You all probably think that all I do in my spare time is eat. I can’t exactly blame you considering that I mostly just post about food. Taking photos and telling other people about what I eat really just is a natural inclination. I think though, that before this space here becomes known primarily for food, I better start posting about other things too.

I try to see as many art openings as I can. I started going around mid-college when I learned that a lot of them were an arm’s length away from home. Gallery openings are always fun, there’s always an abundance of food, wine and the prospect of finding new artists to follow. I’ve gained a few favorites through the years and it’s just nice to see how their work evolves through the course of time.

The idea for Display came to me earlier this year because it always sucked when I had to miss a show. I wanted to find a way to make people feel like they weren’t missing out even if they didn’t have time to hit the opening. Display is primarily a web series that chronicles exhibitions and events within the Manila art scene. I already have 7 episodes up online so check them out.

Here’s the latest one I did. It’s a pretty cool show and it’s up til November 20, 2011 so catch it while you still can.

“Cosmetic Order” is a group exhibition by Oscar Floirendo, Claro Ramirez and Eric Zamuco at the MoSpace Gallery. The exhibit runs from October 22 to November 20, 2011. Mo Space is located at 3F MOs design Building, B2 Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Philippines. It’s the building right next to Krispy Kreme. The gallery is open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
