BONGAO, Tawi-Tawi - Students of different schools here have undergone a four -day cinematography workshop conducted by the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) at the Beachside Inn and Restaurant, which culminated Monday (December 12).
Dubbed as an Introduction/Refresher to Basic Cinematography training program, the workshop aimed to inculcate basic knowledge on the components of cinematography or film making to its participants.
The workshop was attended by about 80 participants from the different colleges and secondary schools in the premier town, namely, Mahardika Institute of Technology (MIT), Tawi-Tawi Regional Agricultural College (TRAC), Mindanao State University (MSU), Abubakar Computer Learning Center Foundation Incorporated (ACLCFI), Notre Dame of Bongao (NDB), Tawi-Tawi School of Arts and Trade (TTSAT), Tawi-Tawi School of Fisheries (TTSF), and some volunteer employees of the provincial government of Tawi-Tawi and other LGUs.
It was learned that the decision to hold a seminar in Tawi-Tawi highlights the pledge of the FDCP to instill basic knowledge and understanding on how the people will undertake and achieve cinematography in this Southern island province of the archipelago.
The workshop was the second FDCP activity in the province following its film festival by the Sineng Pambansa last September wherein about 10 films were shown to the people of Tawi-Tawi, which underscored the commitment of the FDCP “to bring Filipino films to Filipinos, wherever they may be in the scattered islands of the archipelago, or in their overseas communities,” FDCP said in a statement.
The events were also the first ever FDCP activities of its kind to be staged in the province, which in the past were not considered possible for a far-flung province like Tawi-Tawi.
It was learned also that the Memorandum of Agreement for these activities was signed on July 19 by Tawi-Tawi Governor Sadikul Sahali and FDCP Chairman Briccio Santos and Executive Director Jose Miguel de la Rosa at the FDCP office in Makati City, which includes the conduct of a cinematography seminar for free.
According to Ms. Shermalyn Murajil, PGO stenographer, who attended the workshop, the team of trainers include: Napoleon C. Jamir II, director/workshop facilitator, Luis Liwanag, assistant, Roy J. Arabejo, assistant, Maricris de Leon Aquino, coordinator, and Roy R. Llanes, assistant Coordinator, all from FDCP.
