Award and Recognition


What motivated you to join this year's 3 Shots Film Fest?

After officially graduating from college two months ago, I am finally taking my first step out into the real world and there's no better way to finally celebrate my baptism as a Bachelor of Arts degree holder (and a professional) than to join my first-ever Professional Film Fest.

Tell us what inspired you to create this film?

I've always been fascinated with the idea of doing a melancholic scene based on my personal experiences into a film; the feeling of longingness for loved ones that we try so hard sometimes to conceal; a feeling that is both so silent and deafening at the same time. These are what inspired our entry.

Share the challenges you have encountered and the learnings you discovered given the limitations.

The passion and the love of doing something always outweigh the difficulties; this has always been the case for me and my team throughout all of our pursuits, despite of our limited resources, time, and money, we always still manage to deliver what we are asked for.
