10 diamonds in the rough. 1 Polished competition.
Eto ang pinagkakaabalahan ko these past weeks: Make Me A SOEModel Season 2! Isa itong event for School of Engineering Week 2010 sa Asia Pacific College.
Dugo, pawis, luha, at laway (haha!) ang ibunuhos ko together with Association of Computer Engineering Students and my production team para ihandog sa APC ang ganitong event. Sa November 25 gaganapin ang event, 4 PM at APC Auditorium. Meron ding sponsors (sa wakas!): Globe Telecom (sosyal! May text voting kasi), Mary Kay (beauty products), at Craft Tank Puppies (official jeweler ng event, parang Diamond Nexus Lab lang ng Miss Universe, no?).
So for this year’s season (we used “season” instead of “cycle” dahil kontra sa ANTM, since the event was patterned after Make Me A Supermodel) we have major changes, kaya BIGGER, BETTER, BOLDER, BRIGHTER.
BIGGER. Unlike before, I suggested na magkaroon ng production team 🙂 Dati kasi one-man show ako: photographer, makeup artist, editor, pati tagabuhat ng reflector, ako pa! Haha! Para iwas pagod, naghanap ako ng mga taong pwedeng tumulong at the same time, yung pwedeng i-train ko in terms of what I know about production. Dream ko talaga bumuo ng production team at magtrain sa kanila 🙂 At sa MMAS S2 lang mangyayari na magjojoin forces ang School of Engineering at School of Multimedia Arts! I invited some of the promising photographers sa AB Multimedia Arts to be part of the event 🙂
BETTER. Like what I’ve said, kahit naging successful yung unang season, meron pa ring room for improvement. And in this year’s competition, we make sure na aware kami sa mga magiging problema at mga opportunities ng MMAS contest. Since the contest created an impact sa campus, the production promised to offer a better event by refining the structure and flow of the competition. Syempre kung mataas ang expectation ng crowd, we must set the bar higher.
BOLDER. I must say na ang 10 so-called diamonds in the rough ay mga ordinaryong Engineering students na may potential. Yeah, aware ako na ang MMAS ay isang amateur contest for model wannabes and it may not meet the real standards of the modeling industry. But my vision for the event is more than that. Maraming aspects na nakapaloob dito. One of the issues here is self-esteem 🙂 Through this contest, gusto ko madevelop ang confidence nila at matuto silang mahalin ang sarili nila kahit ano ang itsura nila. Of course, the organizers are present to help them to be presentable 🙂
BRIGHTER. Last year, one winner lang. But this season, there will be one male winner and one female winner. Plus, yung prizes na at-stake ay improved 🙂
There are too many things I’d like to share. Kung gusto niyo malaman ang iba, please watch the main competition this coming Thursday 🙂 And you may support them via text votes. Para makaboto and for voting details, just click the pics below.
See you on Thursday!
Hot Like Mexico, rejoice!
