Creation

Welcome to #INAHRTE!

September 25, 2017

After long years of waiting (well, at least, for me), this site is finally launched!
MAGPUGAY ANG LAHAT!!!



'Magpugay' in Baybayin is ᜋᜄ᜔ᜉᜓᜄᜌ᜔
It means to congratulate, to greet, to salute, to welcome.



This is my Bella Powerword Keep Sake. A collaboration of Belle de Jour x Istorya.

I spent three weeks creating and conceptualizing the overall look of my project only to change everything the last minute. Last night, I meant during the wee hours of the morning, I had to start the site from scratch just because I was not satisfied with what I have (that's why you'll notice the site I showed in the video below isn't the current look of the site you are in now).

Being the perfectionist that I am, I can't help but feel the discontentment during the process of producing this project (take note: I'm just starting). But hey, my thesis adviser once told me that every problem is an opportunity. (Hi Sir Dennis!) These endpoints will push you to play around with what you have, stretch your limits, and maximize your creative skill. This is where the magic happens.

Allow me to explain.

I envisioned something different. The problem is I have minimal resources (as of the moment). I have no camera, no lights, no mic, no set, a very raw editing talent, and no other physical help (plus the very limited will to actually pursue this).

# I've been postponing this project just because I don't have a camera - which is not an acceptable reason for the gutsy Inah. :P I have a camera phone, I have a laptop, an internet, I have the time, sometimes I even have the place all to myself, and there's Mr. Sun. I have everything I actually needed (sadly, as well as all the excuses I can think of).

# I was feeling low and wasn't really in the mood lately but I have a deadline and I must meet THE deadline. There were so many things to think about: the brand, the logo, the sites, etc. What do I really want to do with all these? Do I really need this in my life? How bad do I want it? (Yes, apparently, this also involves so much introspection). I want to produce something I will be really proud of. So sinong mag-aadjust? I had no choice but to motivate myself, start, work on something, and find inspiration as I go along the way.

# It is by doing that you actually learn and later on enjoy. I have been a frustrated filmmaker/video editor since high school and I am happy that I was able to learn new tricks and editing hacks from doing this one-minute video alone. Imagine how much more I will learn in the coming days!

LESSONS LEARNED: Do not overthink. Do not stress yourself (been telling this to self a hundred times already). What's important is that you START. (And please stop criticizing yourself especially when there's nothing to critique yet.) :P

The beginning is always the hardest - I'll talk about this in my succeeding blog entries - but with so much love and support from my dearest friends (at yung natitirang determination ko to get what I want --- na surprisingly meron pa pala) --- we made it!

So here's our very first Episode! Let me formally introduce you to my project through this video. Enjoy!


P.S.
There's nothing much to see in this blog YET except for the story behind it which you can find in the "The Project" tab above. I know I should've talked about it in this post, but I need an excuse for you to explore my site. :P
