The advent of technology has opened up many opportunities for aspiring filmmakers – and Intel Philippines’ digital shorts competition has done just that.
Intel Philippines’ marketing manager Randy Kanapi said “Digital Showdown” was part of their company’s campaign which tries “to harness the creativity of the Filipinos.”
Three contenders emerged as winners in the filmmaking contest – the grand prize going to Jay Jamoralin for his shortfilm “Chromatose”, second prize went to Patrick Uy for “Bagong Buhay”, and Gary Sta. Cruz, third with “Marvin’s Digital World.”
Local independent filmmaker RA Rivera, who along with fellow filmmaker Quark Henares, guided contestants in creating their short films and urged the youth to keep on making films, saying in Filipino that the conditions for kids to make their films were “good.”
Filmmakers can also easily show their work to various viewers, who may be total strangers, through the Internet, said Rivera.
