The First-ever KiddiCine Film Festival Calls for Entries

ATTENTION MOMMIES!   Tang’s search for the future faces of Philippine film starts today!

Tang calls on children aged seven to ten years old to send in their short stories that will be the basis of their film. They can draw a picture, take a photo and write up the best, most inventive and most creative ideas to capture the attention of the Screening Committee who will be judging entries based on Creativity, Originality and Adherence to the Theme.  The theme for the First-ever KiddiCine Film Festival is "Because I Can”.

Short listed entries will be notified in person and the top five finalists who will receive the Tang Golden Ticket will get to attend a three-day KiddiCine Film Workshop. There, the finalists will be taught the basics of the craft under the mentorship of some of today’s most respected Advertising Directors.

In the sessions, they will be taught a short background on film, basic filming techniques and basic script-writing by no less than five well-known directors here in our local arena. 

These directors include; Richard Ang, a film and television commercial director, who specializes in highly technical projects with edgy visual effects and computer graphics; Ianco Dela Cruz who started way back when he was a student, venturing to commercials, AVPs and forming a production company where he holds the Executive Producer position. There is also widely-respected and multi-awarded Erik Matti, known for being not just a film/ TV and advertising director but also for being a screen/story writer, producer and restaurateur; Erin Pascual who at an early age sought his talent for animation, special effects and as a motion graphics/ visual effects artist; Matthew Rosen who has been directing for over 25 years, winning national awards and awards globally with over 700 commercials, music videos and TV content under his belt and lastly; Christian Acuna who has been directing TV commercials and other advertising content for over two years and has vast success in directing short films.

If we were to see the world through the eyes of someone who knows no limit to possibility, would we see a different world from the one we live in now? Tang believes in celebrating kids’ creativity, their views and their work and with KiddiCine, welcomes the chance to see the world in their eyes.

Entries should be composed of a completed application form (with a short summary of the story) and an endorsement letter from the parents / guardian. All these have to be sent as “Tang KiddiCine Film Entry” to Ogilvy and Mather, Philippines, 25/F Picadilly Star Building, 4th Avenue corner 27th St, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City 1634 or you can also send entries online. For more information on contest requirements and to download the form, you may go online to www.facebook.com/tangkiddicine . Deadline is on October 28, 2010.

Nuffnang and PLDT myDSL Special Screening

The Social Network is the movie which features the story behind the success of Facebook which is valued at $16 Billion US dollars today! We will learn more about Mark Zuckerberg the founding president of Facebook as portrayed by Justin Timberlake and Eduardo Saverin who plays the role of Eduardo Severin the co-founder who fell out with Zuckerberg over money.

I would like to see the movie just to see the controversy and how they did it! Incidentally Nuffnang is giving away exclusive invites to 90 Nuffies who can make the cut. (Hope I still can make it!) Aside from the movie invite they will also be giving away a PLDT myDSL modem and wifi to one lucky winner!

I want to win the PLDT myDSL modem+wifi!  Simple analogy if...
“The Social Network is to Facebook, as PLDT myDSL modem+wifi is to unlimited uninterrupted internet surfing anytime anywhere!”

I love the fact that PLDT myDSL is plug-and-play just like the regular myDSL modem but I don't need to download any software to make it work.  I also love the fact that I can enjoy up to 25 meters of myDSL WiFi connection that virtually makes me surf anytime anywhere I am!   My sister and I can surf the net at the same time because its high-speed and allows simultaneous connection via WiFi!
