Last year, I was able to work on my third short film. It was something that I conceptualized after I finished editing my two previous films (Kuya Bunso and The 12th of June). I originally planned to make a five minute ‘infomercial’ that can raise awareness on HIV with no dialogues. I ended up playing with the main characters until it became a 17 minute screenplay.

The story of POSITIVE revolves around Celine Antonio, a young married promiscuous woman who is about to face the consequences of her infidelity. Is this based on a specific true story? Nope, but it is inspired from true events.

The full version of my second short film ‘The 12th of June’ is finally up online! It is included as one of the competing films at yourindiefilm.com’s online movie festival. It is my first time to join in such kind of contest and I’ll be needing your help!
For the meantime, let me share to you the trailer of ‘The 12th of June‘ with the synopsis found below:
Last January, I produced and directed my first ever short film called Kuya Bunso. The story evolves around two siblings named Jess (Jehzeel Laurente) and Jackie (Cai Abbass). The eldest is a twenty something special child while the youngest is a goal-driven seventeen year old. I used the script I wrote for the Sinelab workshop I attended last year. I am happy with the outcome of the project because my blogger friends helped me out in terms of agreeing to do the film for free and for helping me out with the technicalities.

Three months ago, I wrote a script about a virtual assistant who is about to face her fears on a specific date. The title of the short film is The 12th of June. It is somewhat similar with one of my blog entries I wrote way back in June.

To be honest, I wrote the script at a coffee shop with a pen and paper. I was a bit emotional that day. Though the laptop can make things easier for me, nothing beats writing with the use of pen and paper especially when creative juices out of your angst starts pouring in.
