Primarily, I am a film editor [Rizal sa Dapitan, Segurista, Bagong Bayani OCW, Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story-Director’s Cut]. But I also consider myself a researcher.
I highly use the visual medium, a powerful tool to advocate for special children in particular, and persons with disability in general. I make personal video documentaries on my journey into their world. Making films to help erase myths and/or break society’s attitudinal barriers towards them by providing only the truth and the right information about their plight and conditions is my goal. It has become a personal crusade, an activity that started when I made a film on my grandniece, Alyana, a child with autism.
Recently, my interest has branched out to historical subjects — our heroes — which I produce for inclusive education purposes. I have just finished “PULE: Utak ng Rebolusyon,” the Filipino-narrated version of “The Sublime Paralytic.” It is a bio-pic on Apolinario Mabini, icon of PWDs. Music scorer is a twice exceptional person with autism who graduated from the U.P. College of Music. Deaf students who are members of the SILENT STEPS, playgroup of DLS-CSB School of Deaf Education and Applied Studies interpreted for the first time Mabini’s El Verdadero Decalogo which was written in 1898.
In between advocacy film making and showings, I am into photography and blogging activities, appreciating to the fullest the photos and blogs of fellow WordPress bloggers.
