Demo Reel 2021

Demo Reel 2021

https://youtu.be/wd5AMz2LMPg Since lockdown started, we've somehow learned to work around the limbo that was 2020. Even if we've had to shoot from home for a time, we've discovered new ways to stay busy and persistently creative while staying connected. There's always a silver lining through all of this and with safety protocols and mandatory swab tests in place, we in Point Blank are very much grateful to be able to still do what we love doing and that is making great quality eye popping content for all of you. It's just a matter of time (and patience!) before we get…

Happy 2021!

Happy 2021!

For some, 2020 was a big blur that began in March and zipped right unto the Christmas season. For most of us, it was a very inconvenient truth that we all had to swallow with businesses closing left and right, working and shooting from home and strict adherence to lockdown rules and curfews among so many other disappointments. And yet for others, it’s been a nightmare year marked by tragedy and loss. But no matter what, the past year has forced us to reflect on and evaluate what truly matters, work with the resources at hand, seek alternative means of…

Behind The Scenes: Descendants of the Sun

Behind The Scenes: Descendants of the Sun

What happens when we can't have the photo shoot on location? We bring the location to the studio! When you're at the mercy of inclement weather and there are deadlines to beat, the job of a production designer/art department becomes all the more crucial. For GMA Network's version of the koreanovela Descendants of the Sun, an army camp and barracks had to be painstakingly recreated inside a small space for the pictorial. I have to admit that our PD did quite a very awesomely meticulous job with the details and textures we worked with on that day. I think that…

Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme

Who doesn't like donuts? And more importantly, who doesn't like Krispy Kreme? I remember, already quite a long time ago, those days that we would beg a visiting relative from the US to hand carry at least a dozen of these original sugar glazed babies on their plane ride to Manila. It was on everyone's pasalubong list and once the anticipation was over, savored each sweet bite. No other experience can match its melt-in-your-mouth one of a kind softness. Fast forward to my photo shoot for Krispy Kreme. Shooting, while eating made me reminisce about those sweet old days. There…

Cain At Abel

Cain At Abel

I've worked with both Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo a number of times all on separate occasions in the past. Cain At Abel brings these two GMA stalwarts together in one exciting, action-packed production that tells of two brothers separated at childhood and then joined together years after in cruel twists of fate. Both men are considered showbiz royalty and yet manage to remain grounded and humble having come a long way in their respective careers. I've worked with all kinds of actors in the industry and the most rewarding to collaborate with are the ones with a deep respect…
