AWARD-WINNING pillars of the filmmaking industry graced the four-weekend filmmaking workshop series recently hosted by the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) and The Manila Times College of Subic (TMTCS).

Among those who imparted their expertise to the students of the arts were Joe Alandy, Tey Clamor, Andrea Idioma, and Pepe Manikan who lectured on the different aspects of filmmaking. Among the topics that were tackled during the third week of the workshop series were post-production supervision and management, cinematography, sound design, and musical scoring.

The workshop held at SBMA’s Dante Arevalo Ang (DAA) theater in the Subic Bay Freeport District was attended by senior high school and college students from TMTCS and other schools from Olongapo City and nearby provinces.

“It’s really satisfying when people share what they know to an appreciative audience. The TMTC students were a wonderful bunch because they showed curiosity and wonder, qualities of good learners. Their questions and insights were spot on and reflected a deep mind and willingness to learn more. I really like people who are like that and it’s people like the TMTC students that inspire me to keep sharing the little I know,” said Manikan, an award-winning composer.

The four-weekend filmmaking series came to an end with the conceptualization and implementation of the TMTCS Creative Arts and Multimedia Program (TMTCS-CAMMP) led by TMTCS President Dr. Dante A. Ang and former FDCP undersecretary Liza Diño-Seguerra.

The TMTCS-CAMMP aims to provide the learners opportunities and experiences in the creative arts and multimedia. They will be coached by accomplished mentors as they build their skills to become future foundations of the creative sector.
