“Meet Tayo” – A Short Documentary on “Eyeballing”

17 06 2009
Technological advancements have changed the social landscape of young people. Teenagers can now communicate and even meet people through social network sites, internet chats or forums and text messaging.
 
 Some of these young people decide to meet face-to-face with those they meet online or through text messaging. One of them is Suzie, who didn’t expect that her textmate gained her trust just to abuse her.
 
 Atty. Mia Cawed, a lawyer who specialize in such cases said that if an abuse happens, society would often blame the girl even she has not consented. Atty. Cawed stressed that agreeing to meet personally with a stranger one meets in the internet or through text is not a crime. What is wrong is if one of those who agreed to meet took advantage of the situation to abuse his or her textmate/chatmate.
 
 Ms. Millicent Juloya, Directress of Child and Family Services Philippines Incorporated, said that most victims of such circumstances often blame themselves of the abuse that has happened to them. Juloya said that it is often difficult for them to move on if they keep on blaming themselves.
 The bureau gathered advice on how to avoid abuse in an eyeball situation. They came up with seven tips:
 1. Don’t meet up with the stranger alone.
2. Don’t agree to go to the house or an unfamiliar place with the stranger.
3. Agree to meet in a place where there are a lot of people.
4. Don’t give out personal information to the stranger. This could be used against you.
5. If you’re not comfortable to meet up, then don’t.
6. Don’t accept food or drinks that the stranger offers. This may contain chemicals or drugs that can make you go to sleep.
7. Always be prepared. Have your cellphone ready to notify family members, friends or authorities when something goes wrong.

Well, basically, it’s all written up there. The intersting facts and stories before, during, and after the shoot will come some time soon. But for now, here’s the video… hope you enjoy! …

9 04 2009

Here’s another video from Kabaaan Xpress…

We made this short documentary since Baguio is seen as an artist haven here in the Philippines…

Curious about the name? … well, watch the video to find out what “Tahong Bundok” is all about …

If you’re near the area or want to exhibit your artwork, just give them a call or drop by their office in the Baguio Convention Center, and maybe they can help you out … 😉





Catching up and Ligaw Ligaw…

31 03 2009

wow it’s been so long since my last post! Geesh, sorry you guys I haven’t been updating recently… I’ve been very busy with a lot of stuff actually – thesis, final pain in the a** requirements/projects, pesting demanding instructors, charity work for friends, etc… sooner or later these things will come up right here and be dedicated a page or so…

 

Anyway, I really got a lot of catching up to do… A LOT! …  

So where do I start… hmmm…

 

Well… can’t think of anything right now but here are some points I’d like to share with you all…

  

In the coming days or weeks, I’d be posting a lot of stuff…

 

1.) funny and weird news from my Netscapades

2.) tips and insights on my learnings in life

3.) some of the works I’ve been involved in

4.) just random thoughts

5.) new lay-out or blog design

6.) others…

 

I know it’s a lot but since I’ve been kinda “free” recently, I don’t want you to feel like I’ve neglected you or something to that effect… he he he…

 

Just today, Ice, I, and Guill started to shoot the latter’s music video as his final project for a certain subject in school. As expected we had lots of fun and we didn’t finish it all. (well, we just started!) The song’s “Ring of Fire” – studio version sung by Adam Lambert of American Idol. The MV’s tackling a suspenseful but action-packed life of a young assassin as he figures a way out of a situation he has no control whatsoever. We’re still struggling on a lot of aspects on it but hopefully, it becomes quite a video once it’s done… hope it’ll be posted on youtube some time…  

But here’s a video you’ll surely enjoy watching…
