Award-winning writer and director Jose Javier Reyes announces the launching of IMAGINE NATION, a media workshop center for aspiring and professional writers and practitioners for film and television.
IMAGINE NATION will provide a series of short term basic, advanced and specialized courses in various aspects of film and television production. Direk Joey will personally conduct these sessions limited to a maximum of 15 selected participants. Each course will cover ten lecture and two viewing sessions.
For its initial offerings, courses in Basic Television Writing and Basic Screenwriting will be opened. Applicants are required to submit their biodata, two id photos as well as a sample of their writing in either English or Pilipino not exceeding two pages. A personal interview will be scheduled by Direk Joey for the final selection of the participants.
All sessions will be held twice a week at Imagine Nation, located at Scout Tuazon Street in Quezon City. Interested parties may call Jeremy Santiago at 4121469 from 10 am to 5 pm for details.
Congratulations are in order to the team of scriptwriters/filmmakers Auraeus Solito, Raymond Lee, Emman de la Cruz and Michiko Yamamoto for their digital film Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros. The film already reaped honors in film festivals in Canada including the Golden Zenith award in the First Films World Competition of the 29th Montreal World Film Festival, and now Maximo is the first Filipino feature to be included in the World Dramatic Competition Films for Sundance 2006.
1. Ang Pagpunta sa Quiapo.
Hindi ka tuturuan ng librong ito kung paano magsulat. Buhay ang gagawa n’on.
Kung naituturo ang pagsusulat, disin sana’y kasingdami ng tinapay ang magagandang scripts.
Hindi rin ibibigay ng librong ito lahat ng sagot. Kagaya sa tunay na buhay, walang iisang pormula sa pagsusulat. Ikaw ang maghahanap ng sagot.
