What Made You Interested to Join the Three Shots Festival?
As a young aspiring filmmaker, I found joining the three shots festival as a great opportunity to broaden my network as well as to hone my filmmaking skills. I thought that the being able to share a worth telling story in just three shots would greatly challenge budding filmmakers like myself .
What Is Your Inspiration Behind This Film?
I was inspired by the challenges and opportunities that the pandemic has brought us. Planting was one of the ways Filipinos coped during these trying times. While the privileged Filipinos are digging up plants, the others are digging up their own graves— going to unhealthy lengths of work.
What message do you want to convey through your film?
With the rise of Social media exposure and consumption, especially during this time where almost everyone's lives are on the Internet, I want to convey an important message on the detrimental consequences of social media influence. Following trends and using hashtags may not be all fun games after all. Regardless if it's fame or money that we're after, still, one of our feet's in the pit.
