PDGP WORKSHOP

Also held recently was the PDGP (Production Designers Guild of the Philippines) workshop for budding set designers. Spearheaded by PDGP President Manny Morfe, the event was a big success considering that the Mowelfund Theater was filled to the rafters, so to speak.

The two-weekend sessions proved beneficial particularly to those already working in the TV networks. Larry Matic of PDGP emphasized the need for creative guidance to improve the craft hence they came up with the workshop.

FAP COMPUTER EDUCATION

Ongoing is the hands-on computer workshop of the Film Academy. Contrary to the previous announcements, the workshop was exclusively for FAP members and immediate families.

But due to numerous inquiries from the public, FAP is contemplating on holding a computer crash-course for the public. If it will push through, courses will be focused on film-related topics.
