Ended September And Started October With My First Love (2014)

Posted by Victoria Mostoles on

They say, first love will always remain in the heart forever and I agree to that.

I fell in love in this city two three years ago when a good friend named Raiza Lansigan, generously brought & tour me here for free. After that day trip, I told my self, I am going to shoot my first film here and it happened.

I was lucky enough to go back here for an AVP shoot. Even though, it was not my second film, I am grateful that I get to “direct” Baguio Kids and the locals. It was more than a fulfilment. It was more of a “mission accomplished” as a filmmaker and as a human.

The shoot was very light and I was able to take some photos. It was my first time to go to Mt. Cabuyao. I didn’t know there was more to the mountains of Benguet.

We went up to Mt. Cabuyao to catch the 5:48 sunrise

Our client was very patient and open to stand on the side of the cliff, “tiis-ganda-buwis-buhay-shot”

Next stop: Irisan, Baguio City. We went to a community called Mushroom Village, for the “Botika sa Paso” activity of JCI Baguio Sunflower.

And she happens to be my favorite <3 She patiently carried this heavy pot and waited for us to fix our framing. Although, she won’t really smile. *May pinaglalaban ang batang ito* :)

We did the interview part beside Camp John Hay.

third-world-filmmaking-hacks attack! Because we were only three so even the tripod needed to do multi-tasking.

We stayed in the peaceful house of Mikee. It felt like we were really living the life :) but the beautiful life lasted for 3 days :( and we had to go back to the chaotic city called, Manila.

Good thing I was able to bring home some cherry apples <3

See you soon my love.
