Last week, I attended the announcement of the winners of “C2 Sarap ng Bukas Video-making Contest 2014” held at Eastwood Mall. The big day was celebrated with young and aspiring Filipino filmmakers showcasing their own interpretation of C2’s “Believe. Achieve” soundtrack. A total of 82 entries were submitted, but only ten made it to the finals.
As I sat back and watched the music videos made by the finalists, I was once again speechless on how talented Filipinos are. The ten have various concepts and different methods to capture interest and emotion from the audience. There were those which made the viewers smile, laugh, and sigh while others simply exceeded our expectations.
The grand winner of this 2014 competition was Ms Crysthelyn Siena Quides with her “Share Success, Share C2” video. She took home Php 200,000 cash prize.
While watching her winning video, I was surprised to see a media friend who was included in Quides’ group. Aha!
