Making a family road trip fun doesn’t have to start by the time people arrive in their intended destination. The long drive should be a fun time on its own.
Last March 2018, I finally got some time to fix my 12-year-old website and blog after enduring poor, uncaring web hosting services (I must admit, it’s true — you get what you pay for). Clearly, it took me over a decade to convince myself to invest a little more of my annual budget to get a decent web hosting company that can support someone like me who is an artist and writer with minimal knowledge on web developing, design, and security stuff.
I couldn’t agree more when someone said that more woman filmmakers should be included in the syllabi of academicians, whether in major subjects of film students or any related media subjects and electives, especially those of mass communication and communication arts students. Academic papers, journals, books, and even blogs and vlogs that are easily accessible by everyone, should be able to find many female names to feature.
I was invited as the facilitator/consultant for the film and photography part of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Workshop on the Development of the Technical Specifications for Special Program in the Arts (SPA) and Senior High School (SHS) Arts and Design Track at the BSP Hotel Jamboree in Makiling, Los Banos, Laguna this March 2017.
