Welcome to the World of Theater: New Manghods

Welcome to the World of Theater: New Manghods

Hi. Hi. Hello!

Besides everyone having an awesome talent of their own.  There are other things that I really admire about this company,  We have this so-called “Magulang-Manghod” relationship (and no not those INCEST types, haha) It’s more like those KAPATIRAN moments I had when I was in highschool. It’s where the 4th Year (Seniors) would be assigned to take care and guide the 1st Year (Freshmen) You know something like how a mother would welcome it’s newborn into the world? Something like that.

In Japan they would call this as SENPAI-KOUHAI
Senpai: Usually older than the Kouhai (Senior/Mentor)
Kouhai: Usually younger than the Senpai (Freshman/Protégé)
*click THIS if you wanna know more*

Back to the Magulang-Manghod part, Magulang means an older sibling while Manghod  is a younger sibling.
In our case, even if we’re not blood-related we call the ones who passed the auditions and the initiation our new Manghod.

I have been a manghod once and from my experience I would describe a manghod as…  Someone who is new to the world of theater, Someone who is eager to learn more about theater, Someone who wants a fresh start, Someone who wants to be guided, Someone who admires his/her magulang.
Now, being a Magulang isn’t as easy as you think. You can’t be called a magulang if you haven’t done anything to earn that. Being a magulang means that you are capable of teaching and guiding your manghods, You have a bit of proof that you have the right to teach a few things to your manghod and have great passion for what you teach and do but even as a magulang we are still on the process of learning and WE SHALL NEVER STOP LEARNING. 😀

Every year our theater company accepts new apprentices. So that means every magulang would have a new manghod assigned to them as well. (that is IF the apprentices pass)
The manghod and magulang’s first pair-up would be in this parade, for this year we had “DREAMS & NIGHTMARES” as our theme.
The new kiddoes would be welcomed to the world of theater, well in this case it would be something like Street Theater 🙂

BayaNiRizal: Mga Bagong Kabanata ng Noli at Fili

BayaNiRizal: Mga Bagong Kabanata ng Noli at Fili 
Hi. Hi. Hello!

As I’ve told you in my “About Me section..
I am a lights designer and a member of  an awesome theater company the USA Little Theater. It’s actually thanks to them that I became a lights designer and now a Technical Director.  (But I still have a lot to learn though) Compared to those professional LD’s and TD’s. 🙂

Anywhoo, this post has been on the “draft” side for a while now..  ( 06-26-13 )  Well these photos right here were taken by me while I was lighting the show. (Thank god for Multitasking skills) Though, there were a lot of b-e-a-utiful scenes that I just wanted to shoot but since I was doing booth shooting and lighting I couldn’t possibly click the shutter every second. Haha. 😀

BayaNiRizal, Formerly known as Ciento Cincuenta—is a play-tribute to our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal on his 150th death anniversary—this was my first production as an official member of this University-Theater company. Though It’s still considered as a work-in-progress but out of all USALT‘s plays, this has been one of those whom I consider as my baby.  Besides being the lights designer, I’ve also acted as the anti-“Donya Victorina”, co-written one of the plays “Ibarra” and we (my fellow batchmates) collaborated with the “Magulangs” (senior members) to stage this production. This has been one of my proud moments as a member.

So, there are nine short-plays and each run features five selected plays, so as not to drag the audience. These photos are the recently staged short-plays ;  “Ibarra” ,  “Sisa” , “Kapitan Tiyago” ,  “Maria Clara” and “Miss Philippines” (Miss Philippines is another shortplay coming from another production in USALT’s : Eksena 5)

— Okaaaay enough with the “my-on-and-on-chibbles” ——
No, but seriously this is play is awesome.  you could check everything else here —> USA Little Theater’s WordPress. & here USA Little Theater’s Facebook

Flew more than 15K Lanterns for Guinness World Record!

“Inaugural Light of Peace Event in the Philippines: World Peace through Inner Peace”

On ze 24th of May, I went to the University of the Philippine Visayas campus in Miagao City.

Since this was just my 2nd time flying a lantern, I have never seen lanterns this many “lit and set free” at the same time. Well, Talk about Mind F*ck (Excuse me) 😀
(For more details about the Event: ( Inquirer Visayas , World Record Academy )

Anywhoo, I brought Enrique (canon 10d) along w/ me, but those  “ERROR 99”  just won’t stop plus the fact that the mirror inside keeps on getting stuck and closing.  I even brought my film cameras which I had later realized that the event would start at around 6PM it would be fine if I had those high ISO rolls with me..
All I had were ze 200’s and one B&W 400..  This was such a huge BUMMER..

So in the end I borrowed my friend’s (Kat) dslr  and volunteered to take their pictures.. Thanks KAT! 😀
I have taken too many blurry pictures, too many of my friends’ pictures..  and I have even reached the point of forgetting the feeling of being there.. 😦
But the fact that I was there and being one of the “15thousand” who helped break the record was enough. (Hihihi)

Camera Used: (Canon EOS Rebel T1i/Canon500D)

I hope you enjoy a few of my photos on that day.. 🙂

Batad ’10 & ’11

I was born in this little town/place called “Batad” somewhere here  –> Google Map <–
Haha, anyway..  Here’s some photos of our friendly-vain Mother Pig and Baby Pig.
I also posted a photo of our old and cool junky car whom I have named “Rusty Jimmy”
But I have no idea if it’s still working..
My mom had it made so that whenever we would return here in the city,
people there could use “Rusty Jimmy” to run errands for my mom..

Thanks for dropping by Blogger, Phlogger and Reader!

Singapore ’11

My parents and I went to visit my brother and his family in Singapore.. (2011)

I had a lot of underexposed photos which needed a bit of fixing..
thus the B&Ws.. a lot of low quality photos too..
Never had a chance to go out on my own though.

There’s always next time. I hope to see you soon Singapore. 😀

Multiply Reincarnates Into a Social Shopping Hub

Hi Hi Hello.

Since “Multiply rebooted its system last December..
Getting rid of its Social Network and now focusing on being the “Social Shopping Hub” for Online Marketers.

Those who wasn’t able to save their files from that site is now living in a world of fear. (That’s me) Mehehe..
Goodbye Photos, Goodbye.  😥
(Now, I fear for my photos on Facebook) But, I think it’s time to put my new 1TB WD Hard Drive  “Teeruh” to use!

So, while I’ve been saving all my photos from Facebook to “Teeruh” I decided to fix some of  the photos 
and upload it here on WordPress..

It’s not that great though.. But whatever.. 
(Still thinking of a good name for my new category)

Enjoy your day Blogger, Phlogger and Readers!

About me and this so-called “Phlog”

Hi Hi Hello.

Aenri

For the past few days I have been changing my blog’s title. From “Beyond Shutters” to “Beyond Schizophrenic Shutters” to “An Amateurs Perspective” and I still have this feeling of changing it again. My friend even suggested a title “A Schizophrenics Point Of View” Uuuh, No thanks. People might think of me as a Schizo, Nope not a Schizo. (Though I AM talking to myself right now, does that even count?) Hearing voices and having Imaginary friends. Sounds awesome, but I just feel so sorry for Schizos, I hope they find a cure soon.

For those who wanna know more about Schizos you could check this link out : Her name’s Janni and has been diagnosed with child onset schizophrenia when she was just 6 years old : “Her father knew there was something special about his daughter but by the time she was five, his pride had turned to panic“ & “Jani’s at the mercy of her mind“

Well, I have no idea what this blog would look like in the future, but I hope it’ll look NEAT.  At first I thought that making a photoblog would be that simple. I guess not. It made/makes my brain bleed. I never knew that after my 5-10 minutes of signing up on WordPress would take me around a week or two to just think of a title or to just even post a single thing on this page. The first one was in my “About” page (So, please do check it out, even if it’ll get you nowhere) Hahaha (*crickets)

I guess I’ll be posting my so-called RANTS and PHOTOS here (things, events, places, theater, plays I’ve lighted etc..) Photos uploaded here would be photos I took using  ”Enrique” my old Canon 10d and my other film cameras aMinolta XG-1Canonet 28 and a Ricoh 500G

PS: If you wanna know more about me : https://aenrisperspective.wordpress.com/about/ — or just click the “About” button (or whatever you call that) up there under the header.  😀 Leave me a comment, a message or something. I do not bite. But I do lick. Kidding. Haha. Alright.

Enjoy your day phloggers, bloggers and readers!
