While the Youth Summer Video Production Workshop heads into its final stretch of shooting, now’s a fine time to highlight the stirling ladies in the group. The midnight oil was burning on Lisa Qiu’s Something last weekend. Her Director of Photography, fellow Workshopper Thila (Summer Child), could go down in history for literally passing out on a shoot of a sexy thriller at 5am. Good thing our amazing Workshop facilitator (and resident night owl) Tony Lau stepped up to cap off the mid-point of the shooting weekend. A few winks later, he was back supervising the drama!drama!drama! on Ferdelle Capistrano’s Cycle and cooking up life lessons during suman-making in Althea Balmes’ Suman Ladies. Be sure to catch all six short films at the festival in November!
