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

I am passionately starting my film making career as a writer and a director. When I found the Facebook post regarding this competition, I was highly excited and immediately planned on joining the competition, especially that this festival is very unique and challenging in its own way.

Tell us what inspired you to create this film?

I have close friends who have similar story with my main character especially on the HIV part. Those stories inspired me to write a piece about how couples deal with it and what real-life challenges are behind those kinds of scenarios.

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

It was very hard to conceptualize and tell a whole 15-minute maximum story and only using three shots throughout. When we decided to execute the shots using tracking shots only, there comes the heavy challenges in rehearsing and shooting. I, along with my team, learned so much especially on being flexible and creative in executing within the limitations of the competition.
