Shooting a short film with the kids!

Year 2013

What makes teaching a very fulfilling job is the chance to influence others and in a way – multiply yourself.

I had a wonderful teaching job after college. I taught in awesome school for 4 years. What’s more awesome? My mom’s the school principal. Convenient!

For 3 summers, I got an amazing chance of hosting Basic Filmmaking Workshops.

Who were my firsts, officially enrolled students? My youngest brother (Joseph) and his best friend (LA).

That’s LA, me and Joseph – during our video shoot.
Year 2009

I also got a chance to do filmmaking classes for the senior high – as part of their ARTS class. My second-youngest brother (Josh) was in that class.

So you get the picture — I taught my 2 younger brothers videography and filmmaking.

That was around 7 or 8 years ago. Now? They have become so good. They have outgrown the master! 😀

The 3 of them has established OnDSpot Productions, a video production house based in Davao City, Philippines.

Them – having a project meeting with the PH’s Presidential Spokesperson.
Year 2017

One can’t help but be proud of what they have become and are becoming.

“While we teach, we learn.” – Roman Philosopher Seneca

If you have something you are good at, why not teach that and multiply yourself? And you know what? Teaching definitely makes you learn more.
