Back to regular programming

Playbill.com does it in New York, Whatsonstage.com does it in London. Cover the gala openings of plays and musicals, that is. Why, I thought, shouldn't we have something similar here? I get invited to these premiere nights, I should be able to take photos and put my camera's video feature (which I've begun fiddling with only lately) to good use.

So here's the latest showcase of my rudimentary video-editing skills, a slight improvement over the raw KL footage I placed here several posts ago. This time, I got to poke around Nero a bit more, learned how to do text overlays, tighten the clip, snip off unnecessary portions. Excruciating going for a beginner, but hey, Coy didn't become Coy in a day.

This is footage I took of the after-show meet-'n-greet with the cast of Tanghalang Pilipino's current production, "Pilipinas Circa 1907," at its recent opening weekend. The modern sarsuwela stars, among others, Arnold Reyes, Miguel Castro, Ana Feleo, Lani Ligot, Jing Reyna, Wenah Nagales, Nazer Salcedo, Bong Cabrera, Dido dela Paz, Mia Bolanos, Lou Veloso, Roeder Camanag and Eric dela Cruz, under Dennis Marasigan's direction. Watch them here.

Wow! Mukhang paninindigan mo na ang pagiging vlogger. Me balak ka yatang guluhin ang ibang category sa blog awards, he he.

So far, so good. nahilo lang yata ako. Kablag! :-)

greater idea if these productions allow you to shoot and show clips of actual performance -- say a 5-10-minute footage of highlights and showstoppers -- ala playbill. great way to promote the productions, you know.

Awwww. I miss these moments after theater productions where everyone's happy with the job well done. :)

Great job, Gibbs! Nakakaadik kumuha ng footage 'no? Hehe. So may Movie Maker ka nga dyan di ba?

At talagang may cutie alert ka pa. Hahaha!

Did you use transition effects? Di ko ata napansin. Pero di naman necessary sa vid mo. Smooth naman. :) But try experimenting with them. Ang saya. Hehe. :P

Keep vlogging!

ARYO, pasmado kasi kamay ko, haha! :)

DENNIS, thanks. i'll try to do more sophisticated vids next time. am sure ako mismo mahihiya sa quality ng vlogs ko after a while, haha. :)

BEEKTUR, ay naku, wish ko rin yan. i hope i can swing them to that option, kasi i'd be very willing to do the vid-taking myself. been thinking of that for a long time. sana pumayag sila. :)

WALTZ, media empire talaga, hehe? happy birthday in advance. mag-blog ka na rin, oy! :)

COY! haha, me responsibility ka na to teach me, kasi you were the one who pushed me into this. err, wala ako Movie Maker, i did this on Nero. i'll try Ulead Videostudio next time, as you recommended. i didn't use transition effects here, i just cut and cut and fused them into a final clip. nahilo ka rin ba a la aryo? hehe. :)

Hello gibbs Bong Cabrera here! Ang galing naman nito may video pa ang meet and greet ng circa. Salamat pala sa pag watch kanina. hahay hiyang hiya ako sa performance ko kasi paos ako nag perform. sobra! Nawalan talaga ako ng boses!! I was so sad and I wanted to cry after the show. Hiyang hiya ako. Pero the show must go on pa rin talaga! sore throat kasi! hahay.. pero salamat pa din.

hi gibbs! jing here. sensha nat di ako techie.

oo naman, willing kami diyan sa video-video na yan. shempre concern lang namin ang mga abusadong mapagpanggap na kunwari gusto tumulong sa pagpromote ng show, yun pala 'Now Showing' na yung mutant version nung production sa kung saang sulok ng Maynila at naka demanda na ang TP sa mga may-ari ng intellectual property rights.

pero kung ikaw, walang problema. Rachel Ann Go! =)

hi BONG, haha, di ko nga napansin a. hope you're feeling better now. it was a good show, btw. miguel c. and ana f. sang beautifully. :)

gibbs cadiz said...

hi JING! welcome to the blog! ayan, nakapag-comment ka na dito, haha. sige, i'll take you up on your offer, madvi-vid ako soon ng excerpts for posting here. salamat sa tiwala. :)

Bong Cabrera said...

Ang saya pala ng blog mo! :) I'm now a fun! :)

Bong Cabrera said...

Kumusta yung I'm a fun? hehehehe. uulitin ko lang para correct na. I'm now a fan! :)
