THE Manila Times College of Subic (TMTCS) and the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) organized a series of weekend filmmaking workshops from June 11 to July 2, 2022.

The workshop series was held at the TMTCS Dante Arevalo Ang Theater, Subic Bay Freeport District, SBMA and attended by senior high-school and college students of the TMTCS and other youths residing in Olongapo City and nearby towns.

The series trained aspiring youth in the art and business of filmmaking and provided them with the chance to learn the tricks of the trade and have hands-on experience from experienced and award-winning professionals.

During the second weekend of the filmmaking workshop series on June 18 and 19, mentors Ilsa Malsi, Erwin Tagle, Aped Santos and Arjanmar Rebeta coached the participants on editing, action design, production design and directing.

“Even after the workshop, we were already craving to learn more,” said Karen Kaye Gopez, a fourth year BA Broadcasting student of TMTCS who completed the filmmaking workshop series.

Gopez said the participants were taught that you can still produce quality outputs without complicated equipment and software, using even just a smartphone and simple editing tools.

“We were introduced to methods and tools already available to us,” she said.

The filmmaking series was concluded with the creation of the TMTCS Creative Arts and Multimedia Program (TMTCS-CAMMP) spearheaded by TMTCS President Dr. Dante Ang and FDCP Undersecretary Liza Diño-Seguerra.

The TMTCS and CAMMP are committed to delivering continuous learning opportunities and experiences in creative arts and multimedia for the youth. The partnership aims to guide the youth in honing their skills and talents to become pillars of the creative industry in the future.
