My dear college friend and my former school bus mate, Hannah, asked my help for her masters project about IT ethics. Sinabihan niya ako about months ago pero she only remembered and we planned it few days before the deadline. Now, spell ‘panic’.
P – A – N – I – C. (Ok, utu-uto, inispell nga haha.)
They had to come up with a 30 second-1 minute advertisement/audio visual presentation about ethical Information Technology advocacy (like cyberbullying, internet security, responsible ‘clicking’, internet hoax, atbp) and must be uploaded at YouTube.
We picked private information security. Most of us are guilty about this: mahilig tayo mag-post or mag-share ng kahit ano tungkol sa atin. Pero there are certain risks and disadvantages about oversharing your personal stuff. You might never know, yung mga pinopost natin na mga personal na bagay tungkol sa atin ay maaring kumalat nang di natin inaasahan. Pwede ka magkaroon ng mga stalkers, mawalan ng privacy (at gawan ka ng chismis), at magkaroon ng ‘posers’ (mga taong nagpapanggap na ikaw). Baka kinabukasan, magulat ka na lang na makita mo yung picture mo sa di inaasahang lugar. Scary.
So the project is entitled “Share”. It’s about this average girl who loves social networking sites. Then she ‘shared’ her pic there. Tapos all of a sudden, the next day, di niya inaasahang kakalat yung picture niya sa mga unexpected na lugar. No matter where she is, the horror of oversharing still follows her.
Ginawa lang namin yung project niya half-day. Hannah was the producer and I became the director and cameraman. We started at past 3 PM then finished at around 11 PM. Naging talent namin yung sister niya na si Haina since yung ibang friends na gusto gawing talent ni Hannah ay hindi available. Medyo challenging yung shoot day since late na kami nagstart and the weather wasn’t that good. Eh according to our storyboard, some of the scenes require outdoor shots. Pero it went well naman 🙂
Here’s the rough storyboard. Pasensya na kung pangit yung drawing. I only did that the day before the shoot. Nakakamiss na ang Video Production courses sa college.
So eto na yung finished product. Ito ang resulta ng aming pagpapaambon (kahit yung camera lang ang pinapayungan). I helped in editing the video. Sorry for the low quality. Medyo ni-rush namin. Ginawa namin ang video at in-upload namin the day of submission. buti na lang at umabot kami sa deadline 🙂
And what inspired me to help in her project? Food! Dahil ako ang dakilang bwisita nila, binigyan nila ako ng napakasarap na merienda 🙂
Ito ang aking simple pero napakasarap na merienda. Her mom gave me a piece of baked-fresh cupcake with a nice cold glass of iced tea. At naka tray pa. Nagbe-bake pala yung kapatid ni Hannah nang dumating ako. Amoy pancake + cupcake yung buong bahay. Nakakatakam tuloy. Sabi ko huwag na lang kami magshoot at magbake na lang kami 😀
Then evening comes. This was our dinner. Dinner ito ah. Di ako sanay na ganyan ang hapunan namin. Sanay ako sa tuyo lang. Haha! I forgot kung sino nagluto pero they prepared this nice pasta together with hotdogs and bread. Gusto ni Hannah ng well-done na hotdog. Yung totoo, nasa steakhouse kami?
Mas masarap ang food pag may kasamang kwentuhan. Andami naming pinagkwentuhan to the point na nakalimutan namin na may tatapusin pala kaming project 😀
Natapos namin yung editing at naupload na rin sa YouTube around 11 PM. I needed to go home para masauli yung Canon 550D ng pamangkin ko (Super thanks, Macky! Sorry kung lagpas sa intended time). Then before I went home, Hannah gave me an envelope (alam niyo na kung anung laman nun) and a nice box of cupcakes (made by Haina during breaks). Awww. How toughtful. How Goldilocks. Sinasabi ko na nga ba. Nagdududa ako kay Haina nun. May inaayos siyang mga cupcakes na very different aside from ibang cupcakes for her relatives. Di ko akalaing sa akin pala :).
I ate one cupcake a day (there were 6, so 6 days). I wish I had more cupcakes. Sarap isabay sa malamig na iced tea or kape (syempre mainit na kape, kasing-HOT ko. JOKE.)
Hot like Mexico, rejoice!
