The SGP Movie-Making Workshop which ended last December 5 closed out with the screening of the participants’ output in the form of three short movies.
The first project inserted in the projector was Housemate, a horror movie with subliminal message that’s known only to the director. Takbo is the second group’s project which was shot on location in Manila Bay and UP Diliman. A dialogue-less comedy, Mack The Knife, used the concept of Cesar Cosme, a GMA-7 comedy writer.
Lending support with their presence to the simple graduation ceremonies were FAP Director General Leo Martinez and film director Jose Carreon.

The following participants received certificates of completion: Lita Duguran, Giselle Ordinario, John Roux, Ruel Enoya, Mark Vita, Rene Durian, Ronald Pozon, Lani Rallos, Pax Manalang, Ros Manalang, Joyce Solatre and Roselle Siojo.
The instructors for the workshop were Hernan Robles for directing, June Reyes for the camera, Lani Tolentino for scripting and Issa Sebullen for story writing. Resource speakers who shared their experiences were Dir. William Mayo for directing, Jose Carreon for scripting and Rica Arevalo for Indie production.
SGP will hold the next workshop in the first quarter of 2010. But instead of a 3-day workshop, the sessions will be for 5 days to afford the participants more time in producing their short film output.
