Wasted director Noel F. Lim called me (collect!) for updates on the Wasted movie. He’s well into shooting it with new actors, and has been showing footage to people (except ME, may I add). Kidding aside, it’s hard for us to get together anyway because he lives in a remote part of Quezon City, while I live in a remote part of Laguna. He chides me for having time to do acting bits for my You Tube channel, but not the Wasted movie. No comparison man. These You Tube things I do in the same room where I work. I can quickly make one while taking a break from drawing.
I understand why he wants me to be actively involved in this movie, specially since it’s a work of mine that has deep significance to me, and I do appreciate him wanting me to be so involved. I guess I just trust him enough as a filmmaker to leave him alone and still do my work justice. And his ideas seem to gel well with mine so I’m not worried. But I hope to hell he doesn’t put any stupid ass CGI flames in there or I’m gonna freak.
My pal Jonas Diego just unveiled this crazy ass project that him and his company IAS has been working in secret for quite some time. I’m surprised because it’s something so far removed from what he has done so far. Apparently, it’s an effort to promote the company as a creator of web content from games to animation. And their project The Challenge of the SuperDuperFriends is a prime example of what they can do.
Watch This Video on You Tube
Feeling frustrated and flabbergasted at how a site like You Tube can be so inefficient but yet remain so popular, I made a video venting my frustration in what I hope to be a fun and creative way. After doing video blogs on You Tube for around a year, I think I’ve finally found a way to do it comfortably by adapting a certain persona. If you see the video, you’d see what I’m talking about.
The FUTURE of YOU TUBE!
Speaking of video blogging, it’s a new branch of the Internet experience that I’ve completely adapted. For quite a while I’ve been wondering why not that many Filipinos have taken to it as much as they have text blogging. Filipinos have demonstrated that they adapt well to technology, willing to try new things. Why not video blogging? There are a lot of Filipinos on You Tube and Live Video, but I thought, not a lot doing any hard core vlogging. But I could be mistaken.
More and more I’m discovering new and old Filipinos doing it, and in an effort to try and figure this out, I’ve opened a group at You Tube to at least attempt to list these vloggers and have sample of their work collected. If you are a Filipino doing video blogging, and that means you sitting in front of the camera and talking, then please join the group: PINOY VIDEO BLOGGERS to help find out just how many of us are doing it. This doesn’t include people who just have an account and not have any videos, or people uploading TV programs, animations, etc. I hope people don’t think I’m excluding anyone, but the purpose of the group is to just find out who are doing video blogging and how many there are.
