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.
