I like how this week went—my Thursday and Friday, at least.
- Thursday night, my good mates Rose, Camille and I had the chance to go and cover Mini-INPUT (International Public Television) Conference not only because of the cocktails and fancy dishes after the event.
UST opened second regional Mini-INPUT Conference in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand from November 14-16. It features the best documentaries of INPUT in Central America.
Rose was reporting for The Flame, Camille for our blog (that I’ll probably publicize here soon. Haha!),and I… was just tagged along.
We had an amazing night with some 4th year UST Communication Arts students, GMA, ABS-CBN and foreign representatives at the TARC Auditorium. It was just the opening of the event but the points and issues raised during the discussion after the documentary they showed us were very interesting, about censorship and all that. We even wanted to attend the conferences for the next days but sadly, it’s an RSVP thing; more like catering to professionals thing.
Anyway, we dine after (at last!)—hors d’oeuvre and “lemongrass with ginger” stuff. It was fun. We even got to talk to one of the moderators of the event, François Smit. (I actually just finished transcribing our interview with him and I kind of had a hard time.)
My mates and I separated ways past 9 pm with no regrets, just love.
- Friday afternoon, I watched Blue Bustamante at Trinoma and it was my first time to actually see a film there.
In that moment, I swear (nope, not the infinite thing) nothing compared to the delight and satisfaction I felt after watching Mike Livelo’s hilarious film at a nice theater (although I did’t know how things work there yet).
The film was short, light and not light at the same time. Impressive. Joey de Leon was a secret actor there! He was one of the robots!
If you haven’t watched it—or other Cinema One Original films—I advise you to check their Facebook page now and look for the schedule.
Of course, I was alone again. My friends and my cousin don’t like such movies. My best friends are miles away. My brother had classes. I wish I could find those kinds of movie and shows buddies.
- Yesterday/Saturday, oh chores.
