Unlike the usual camp where the youth-participants enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, and campfires, the participants in the Regional Youth Camp/PHE & ASRH Film Making Workshop experienced otherwise. RPO-V seized the opportunity of having the twenty two coaches and forty four students from the six provinces to provide them with other relevant information aside from PHE & ASRH. The group also had the chance to show off their talents through creative presentations during the first day.
Mr. Adrian B. Aguilar, Chair of the Communications Department, Bicol University College of Arts and Letters facilitated the workshop on film making. As a background, he shared the history of film making, with sample videos of the earliest movies produced. Then elaborated on the stages of film making namely, pre-production (scripting, raising funds and planning), production (shooting the film), and post production (editing, grading and visual effects). After the lecture, the participants were given the chance to shoot their own short films, making use of the available resources and locations.
The activity was graced by the presence of the Assistant Regional Director of DepEd, Mr. Tolentino Aquino. He made mention of POPCOM and DepEd 's partnership in the implementation of programs that aim to promote the total well-being of young people. In closing, he reminded the young people that "It is ok to be in love but be in control".
