“Into the art of visual storytelling” NorthMin celebrates CINEMAGIS 5

N

o r t h e r n Mindanao has a lot to boast of; from its people to its natural endowments and straightfor ward to different stories it conceal that up to this writing, some has never been told. With all grace, this region is lucky to possess top film makers who strive hard to promote what Northern Mindanao has to offer not only in the national scale, but international as well through “visual storytelling”. Xavier University, Xavier Science Foundation, Xavier Center for Culture and the Arts (XCCA), XU-NSTP in cooperation with the National Commission for Culture and Arts (NCCA) conducted a two-day CINEMAGIS film seminar-workshop for students and professionals on January 24-25, Little Theater, Xavier University Ateneo de Cagayan. Now on its fifth year, CINEMAGIS continues to celebrate film making potentials of the region and is forefront in producing digital short films that will further prop up chronicles in the locale through student and professional film enthusiasts. According to Mr. Hobar t Savior, XCCA Director, CINEMAGIS is the first step for CINEMA Rehiyon thus film making industr y must be a serious one. Through these featured films which are categorized on a student and professional category, it will help endorse Northern Mindanao, telling those who are from Visayas and Luzon that we do exist and we have caliber film makers. Also, through those films, not only Northern Mindanao but the whole

of it, will be cleansed from negative images shown and perceived by others of what Mindanao is. Films which portrayed lives of our Muslim brothers will help in such a way that we will somehow eradicate our “nega vibes” about them. M r . Te n g Mangansakan, an award winning screenplay writer and director based in Davao stressed that “film is nothing but visual storytelling”. A film must tell a story and must confess meanings beyond the human eye; so that, it will be appealing to the audience and that it will acquire such importance in the society. He further admitted that a film must start with an idea, a concept in which one will find significant to be made into visions. “If you have an idea, cultivate it, and soon work it out to be put into a script and next is into film”. And that, “storytelling is the most challenging part of the whole production.” Putting every statement into c o n n o t a t i o n s , M r. Teng also explained the difference of making telenovelas and short f i lms. “ Telenovel as napakaraming dialogues, it is not suited for visual storytelling kasi lahat s i n a s a bi , g i n a g aw a na nga sasabihin pa compared to what is visual storytelling na kung saan wala nang masyadong satsat pinapakita na lang sa gawa and how will the audience understand it, ganoon yun”. “Kagaya na lang ng kapag sa scene ay paparating na ang bida, sasabihin pa nga isang character na, parating na siya. Sinasabi na lahat eh”. Mr. Teng put an emphasis that local film makers must have their own identity in

making films, of course idea first but on how will you structure the series of events or plots really matters also. Show your audience the meaning behind and not the meaning in front. “Let us do cinematic enrichments and make devices in which it is for the visual understanding”. “Titles unique, create a certain identity na ikaw talaga, oo nga may mga kaparehang idea pero hindi naman pwede na parehas lahat, diba? Pareha man kayo ng konsepto pero yung pagkakabuild ng series of events and other elements may pagkakaiba”. “Dapat tayo gumawa ng meaningful and fresh films”. To end his discussion about the basics of film, Mr. Teng left the participants with points and ideas to ponder on how to make films in the future that are helpful and not destructive to the society. He pointed out the following: 1.) Make a film out of a certain good intention and cultivate it through motivation 2.) Make sure everything is organic, built-in in nature, what is real 3.) Characters and settings must be realistic, get characters who can act as to what is their role in the film and not as actors and actresses of their own wants and; 4.) Assess pointers of your film, what is the story about, will the number of characters work, proximity of influence to the audience, problem at the end, where is the story going, how does the story move and is the story predictable. Wo r k s h o p s o n storytelling out of some projected concepts and situations were done also. “Always remember, a film is nothing but visual storytelling” ~Mr. Teng Mangansakan

OroChamber Exec JV ASKS GOV’T TO CAPITALIZE ON CITATIONS FOR elected COWD Chair PHL AS TOP TOURIST SPOT

O

ro Chamber P a s t President and incumbent Tr u s t e e o f t h e Agriculture, Mining and Fishery sector Ruben Vegafria is now he ading t he Cagayan de Oro Water District (COWD) as Chairman of the Board. Serving the local water district for four (4) years now, PP Ruben Vegafria was elected as the 11th Chairman of COWD last January 4. “ This is a good development for us in the Chamb er,” said President Efren Uy. He said that since water is a key business cost concern M r . Ve g a f r i a ’s chairmanship will expectedly improve the deliver y of water services throughout the city for the benefit of thousands of Cagayanons and business establishments. As a hard-working executive, Oro Chamber believes t h a t Ve g a f r i a’s

le adership in t he water company will pave the way f o r t h e l a t t e r ’s transformation into an effective, efficient and reliable water service utility that everyone is hoping for. It can be recalled that COWD was among those badly hit by typhoon Sendong. At present, COWD is busy upgrading

S

its pipes and water distribution systems while installing needed pipes in nearby areas.

A N Ju an R e p. JV Ejercito E s t r a d a u rge d the Depar tment of Tourism (D OT) to t a k e a d v a nt a g e of the citations given to the Philippines as one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Ej e rc ito E st r a d a made the statement after the Philippines was given the B est Tourism Destination a w a r d b y C h i n a’s E n g l i s h d a i l y, “Oriental Morning Post.” The citation was based on a consumer survey conducted by the newspaper. A l s o, A m e r i c a n travel magazine “Conde Nast Traveller” recently included the Philippines in its list of “Top Tourist Destinations to Watch

in 2013.” Last week, the Philippines received the “Most Romantic Destination” award from another English daily in China, the “Shanghai Morning Po s t .” T h e a w a r d was also based on a consumer survey. “The DOT should now step up its efforts to promote the Philippines as a tourist sp ot . At t h e s am e time, government should implement the necessary reforms to develop the tourism industr y,” s aid the young lawmaker. He said the government should immediately upgrade m aj o r a i r p o r t s i n the countr y and improve other tourism infrastructure to boost tourist arrivals.

The senatorial candidate from the Unite d Nationa list Alliance (UNA) said the government should focus on developing the country’s tourism i n du s t r y g i ve n it s p otential to create more jobs and provide business opportunities to local entrepreneurs. Ej e rc ito E st r a d a said that while the c ou nt r y h a s m any wonderful tourist spots that could lure in travelers, the Philippines is still being edged out by other Southeast Asian countries in terms of attracting tourists. Malaysia, for instance, was visited by 24.7 million tourists in 2011 while only 3.91 million tourists visited the Philippines that

same year.

ALA The power of “Likes” MODE OWEN JAEN

I

confess. I am a “Facebookphile” and since I first joined this social networking site in 2007, I am hooked. Lately as I was browsing through newsfeeds that I receive daily, I have noticed that there are postings of photos of people asking random people for 1 million likes so they can have thei r requ es t fo r a puppy, a baby or whatever they would like to have. There are also posts of photos that ask for either a “like” or a “share.” This trend in Facebook also caught the eyes of the entrepreneurs and now you will see so many products and services that

are asking for likes on their fan pages. Even beauty contests and other online competitions rely on the Facebook users’ likes to determine the most popular and reward them with a prize. So what’s wrong with “liking?” At some point there is none. But if one looks closely, this behavior of actually needing affirmation from people to validate their “digital existence” has become the new way of evaluating one’s self as well. Some personal accounts on Facebook also rely on their friends liking their statuses and posts just so they will know if they are being noticed or

simply ignored online. That is the danger, when young people wanted to belong and become so engrossed with their social media accounts that they want people to see if their so-called friends actually notice them. These young users feel let down once likes and comments and even shares are fewer than they expected. Every post on Facebook does not have to go viral and you do not have to beg for likes in order to be popular. If your intention is to just express yourself, then do it. The likes will come naturally. And if you feel that none of your friends liked your posts, don’t fret. They probably missed out

in reading what you said. Or perhaps they simply don’t care or have already gone tired of your constant rants and unimportant shout-outs. For those who have plans of liking all posts on Facebook, this is also considered an abusive behavior. It is not your obligation to like all the posts you see on your newsfeed. This is not a guarantee that you will be liked in return. The reason the like button was devised so that users will have a quick and instant reaction to a posts but this does not mean we have to rape the like button like there’s no tomorrow. Only like what is necessary, relevant and has a personal

connection to you. And one more thing, you do not have to thank each and every person that liked your post. This can be cute at first but when your post reached 500 more or so, you are just wasting your time liking each one of them. Don’t worry, you are not running for any government position and they will understand if you have not s a id any word about them liking what you just shared to the world. Be a responsible social media user. As what a local media network giant is campaigning and which I “like,” I am reminding everyone to THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.

RESPECT from Within

A

good friend musician of mine once shared to me one of his bad experiences as an instrumentalist. Over the years my good friend has never failed a single event when he’s hired to play . On one occasion my friend and another musician were both hired for a certain event and since they have worked together for many times, there couldn’t have been a problem at all. The unexpected happened, the other musician didn’t showed up at the event when infact a commitment was made with the client. There was no text message nor call from the other musician, worse my friend found out afterwards that this other musician was also playing in another event with the exact same time they were suppose to play together. The experience was really bad right? I myself wouldn’t want to be in that situation. The relationship between two musicians was strained. What more

with RESPECT? Again as I have emphasized in my last article “work ethics” is deeply rooted in our personal values and respect is a core characteristic that an individual must develop. As the saying goes “ you cannot give what you don’t have” ... Therefore you cannot truly respect others , if you don’t truly respect yourself first. Even if we have discussed “respect” over the years within the four walls of our classrooms , we should purposefully and continually remind ourselves of the value because it helps us stand on the ground. Aside from the great lesson I learned “respecting time”, “respecting myself “ is a day to day step I take to keep me reminded of this value. Believe it or not as I am writing this article, I am actually quarantined in my room for the whole day because of frequent asthma attacks. I decided to stay home today because I respect the need of my

body to rest, but as I made that decision I had to inform my supervisor of my health condition so that she can inform the parents and my students that I cannot hold voice classes. With that I exercised respect for their time. I am a steward of God’s gift that’s why I do not overuse it, as my respect I take time to rest and put it to proper use. I respect my editor that’s why I’m submitting within the deadline. Developing respect indeed starts within. It has to be incorporated in our personal values system ... So that when we face various situations in life, whether in the music field in my case or the like, we can respond always with RESPECT. Just like another musician I know and I secretly salute this person. There was a great offer for this musician but to accept the offer means stepping on another musician. What ‘s more amazing is that this musician secretly informed the other

WORDS & NOTES DEBBIE CABAGUE

musician of the offer and declined the offer because of deep RESPECT for the senior musician. As I end this article I would like to address these questions to everyone whatever field you are in.. How deep is your respect to yourself, to your gifts, to others? If you we’re placed in that same situation with that last musician I mentioned, will you be able to give it up or not? Your answer to the questions clearly reveals whether you truly value respect or not.

AN JUAN City Representative JV Ejercito Estrada expressed gratitude to President Benigno Aquino III amid reports that PNoy has already signed into law the Domestic Workers’ Act, widely known as Kasambahay Act. “I’m very thankful to President Aquino for his concern over the plight of household helps who have long been at the mercy of their respective employers,” Ejercito Estrada said. “This is the best gift we can give at the start of the new year for these hardworking men and women who tend to our homes and take care of our children.” The Kasambahay Act ensures the rights and welfare of the estimated 2 million household helps all over the country and also pegs their minimum salaries. Under the new law, the minimum salary of a domestic helper is pegged at P2,500 in Metro Manila, P2,000 in chartered cities and first-class municipalities, and P1,500 in the rest of the country. The law orders the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board to determine succeeding

salary increases following consultations with stakeholders. Apart from monetary compensation, which includes a 13th-month pay, the law also mandates employers to enroll their househelpers in Social Security System, Philhealth, and Pag-ibig Fund and to pay part of their monthly contribution. Also, domestic helpers should be afforded at least eight hours of rest every day and a day off a week. “Most household helps have very little education,” Ejercito Estrada said. “That is why I’m glad that my proposal to require employers to allow their household helps to complete their basic education has become part of the new law.” A similar bill was first filed 15 years ago. The current bill went through countless modifications before it was finally approved in the 15th Congress in the first week of December. The San Juan lawmaker, as vice chairman of the Committee on Labor, is among those who shepherded the bill through the House of Representatives. ADVERTORIAL

Misor plant cited for superior environmental performance

V

illanueva, Misamis Oriental – Senator Loren Legarda cited recently energy firm STEAG State Power Inc. (SPI) for having been conferred with the prestigious DENR Official Seal of Approval. In her letter to SPI President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Bodo Goerlich, Senator Legarda, who is also Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Climate Change, commends SPI’s continuing effort to integrate green polices into the company’s business plans and operations. In November last year, SPI joined the ranks of 18 other companies in the country, and among the five in Mindanao, to quality under Track 1 of DENR’s Philippine Environment Partnership Program (PEPP). PEPP-Track 1 industries are large companies that go beyond c omp l i a n c e a n d d r i v e n by competitiveness, image and supply chain requirements to improve performance. The award is conferred to companies with no cases and complaints filed with the Pollution Adjudication Board for the last three years prior to the date of awarding; are in full compliance of all applicable environmental laws and proven to show cleaner production processes and superior

environmental performance by a 3rd party auditor. “May this award inspire other companies to take the path of green and sustainable development” Sen. Legarda said. Using state of the art electric generation and pollution prevention technologies, the power plant continues to meet global standards on efficiency and reliability and has achieved 100% compliance with applicable local and international environmental protection regulations. Through the years, SPI enjoys the reputation of being one of the highly efficient and reliable power producers in the country. Since start of its operations in November 2006, the power plant has so far delivered more than 8 billion kWh of electricity to the Mindanao grid representing about 20% of the island’s total power supply. SPI is a special purpose company that owns and operates a 210 MW (net) power plant at the PHIVIDEC Industrial Estate in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental. The company is majority owned by Steag GmbH which is Germany’s 5th largest electricity producer and market leader in biomass power plants. Steag’s Filipino partners at SPI include clean energy leader Aboitiz Power Corporation (AP), and La Filipina Uygongco Corporation.

...ITALIANNI’S From page 1

The core of ItalianAmerican cuisine is in the pastas and pizzas it serves. Italianni’s has a wide array of your favorite pastas including Baked Ziti, Penne with Italian sausage, creamy beef ragout baked with parmesan and mozzarella cheese; Seafood Cioppino¸ spaghetti pasta topped with mussels, calamari, clams and shrimps complimented with a white wine sauce; the well-loved Shrimp Fra Diablo, fettuccine pasta sautéed with shrimp, garlic, pine nuts, spinach, asparagus and feta cheese, in a marinara cream sauce; and finally, the Spaghetti & Meatball, the classic favorite made special by Italianni’s huge homemade meatball served with marinara sauce. When it comes to pizzas, Italianni’s boasts of their Pizza Speciale (classic round shaped pizzas) and the Pizza Grandioso (oblongshaped crust and perfect for sharing)—either way, all are best enjoyed amidst Italianni’s old

world charm. Sumptuous entrees include the Roast Pork Ribs (which comes with green beans, garlic rice and peppercorn sauce) and the all-time Filipino favorite, Grilled Pork Chops (grilled peppercrusted pork chops with black peppercorn sauce, crisp fried spinach, seasonal vegetables and garlic rice). Leave some room for dessert and indulge in treats like the creamy Panna Cotta, Italy’s famous vanilla custard made fresh daily and served with guests’ preferred sauces (mango, blueberry or honey with walnuts). Italianni’s desserts provide the sweet ending to such a memorable dining experience. As Italianni’s opens its newest branch at the Level 1 of Centrio Mall in Cagayan de Oro City, Cagayanons and local and foreign tourists can experience the same great food, friendly and efficient service and an ambiance that is warm and inviting—the same formula that has made the Bistro Group of Restaurants a leader in casual dining.
