When the award-winning filmmaker, Brillante Mendoza was asked to again direct the President’s State of the Nation Address (SONA), we expected another different twist. He did not disappoint, we got more close-up shots of the President.
When asked about it, he told the media,”It’s in the interpretation. In aesthetics of cinematography, you get close to the person because you want to see his soul, part of [his] soul.” That magic mirror is Brillante-inspired.
I am a big fan of local strips. Not strip clubs, but comic strips. I just can’t help making these little observations.
