Hello mga besh! I’m back!
I’m gonna start this night with the quote that says, “The cure for anything is salt water—sweat, tears or sea.” I couldn’t agree more about this.
This time, right at this very moment, I’m gonna share with you my mermaid days…. and the #aREEilChronicles begins…. (charot)
I’m from Misamis Occidental and I never knew that my place is so much abundant with so much islands not until I visited Panaon. Panaon is a small municipality in my province and a 45-minute drive from my city, Ozamiz. If you are obsessed with the sound of the roaring waves, the refreshing breeze of the air, and the mesmerizing rays of the sunset, you’ll surely love the following things I’m about to say…
We visited Panaon a couple of months ago to shoot our requirement for our midterm exam. Our instructor required us to shoot a film and have it edited to test our video editing skills and of course I’ll include the acting skills. It was all about creativity, anyway (he-he). Our film was about the survival days of a group of people that has been stranded in an island they don’t have a cue not until they’ve noticed that the number of them was slowly decreasing as one and another one was already missing. The island was the home of the cannibals, the people who eat humans. We had our film done in a secluded island, in which that was what we really needed—a place which is away from any interruption of loud noises and of course to make our film look realistic.
The island was so relaxing, you’ll really find the serenity you’re searching. I felt good in there, there was something in me that was fulfilled. It’s probably because I am an island girl and I’m really in love with the sea. I also needed the fresh and salty air treatment of the sea that moment ’cause I was all messed up with all my problems. I was emotionally, intellectually and physically drained, I almost gave up. Even until now, in every day, I always almost give up yet still I always find the reason why I shouldn’t. There is still hope in me and I am thankful for that.
So here are the photos I took that will certify my statements.
The makeup artists with the cannibal team.
The reincarnation of Moana.
My most favorite shot from the island.
We did the whole film using our vacant hours during weekdays. Ikaw, saan aabot ang vacant mo? (he-he)
See you on my next blog! xx 😉
