Despite being set in 1899 New York, ‘Newsies’ strikes close to home (Interaksyon)

My work at Interaksyon has expanded now to include writing theater reviews. I prefer being able to release reviews on online sites than in Manila Bulletin because I can get my reviews out earlier. Speed is the key when it comes to reviews because, if the work is good, it's important to get people to…Read more Despite being set in 1899 New York, ‘Newsies’ strikes close to home (Interaksyon)

grinding again

No, this is not a post about Grindr. I don't see myself coming back to that app anytime soon, if ever. This is about a project I'm working on that required me to be out of town for a two-day shoot. Through a friend, I landed a project where I get to redesign and reimagine…Read more grinding again

I feel that they wrote the script without care about how much it would cost and they…Read more the bigger pond

There's practically no set design, just a ring…Read more theatrical
