SHOOT! School Team was invited to give a talk in the biggest photography and videography expo in the Philippines – the Photoworld Asia 2018 held last February 2, 2018. I got to talk about my favorite topic – documentary filmmaking.
I hope that in a span of an hour, I was able to give good insights to the audience.
“I believe that filmmaking is about creating emotions. It’s about creating feelings, it’s about understanding your own feeling when you are in the location, understanding your own emotions that you felt into a piece of work, and transferring that emotion to your audience. That’s why filmmaking for me is sometimes, “feel”making, creating feelings with your audience.”
