ABS-CBN Docu Caravan inspires future documentarists

Over 800 communication students took home tips and inspiration on how to make relevant and meaningful documentaries in the first two legs of the ABS-CBN Documentary Caravan held last September 20 and 27 at the University of Santo Tomas (UST) and Holy Angel University.

A project of the country’s leading media and entertainment company, Knowledge Channel, and the Philippine Association of Communication Educators Foundation, Inc. (PACE), the ABS-CBN Docu Caravan featured a screening of the network’s documentaries and a talk and open forum with award-winning ABS-CBN News reporter and “Red Alert” anchor Jeff Canoy, together with seasoned producers from ABS-CBN Docucentral.

The event aims to empower students to use their talents and skills in telling informative and relevant stories  through documentaries.

Jeff, whose most recent documentary “Di Ka Pasisiil” on the Marawi siege with fellow reporter Chiara Zambrano was praised by his peers and viewers, told the students to focus on the people’s stories.

“They should prevent just showing ‘talking heads.’ People don’t want to listen to people talking about stuff, they want to watch something. So, the tip is in all your videos, it’s either you have motion or emotion,” he said.

The Docu Caravan served as a good preparation for the students, who were invited to join ABS-CBN’s “Class Project: Intercollegiate Mini-Documentary Competition,” also in partnership with Knowledge Channel and PACE.

Eligible students from schools with members of PACE may join for a chance to win cash prizes and to have their work shown on television on Knowledge Channel, which is available on SKYcable and ABS-CBN TVplus. Deadline for submission of entries is on November 20, 2017, while winners will be awarded on next year’s “Pinoy Media Congress Year 12.”

“We want to listen how you tell your stories and we want to share how you see things with fresh eyes,” said Danie Sedilla-Cruz, Knowledge Channel head to participants of the ABS-CBN Docu Caravan.

As a parting shot, Jeff also reminded students to always aim for the heart of people when telling stories. “The heart never forgets,” said the “Most Trusted TV Field Reporter” in the recent Eastern Visayas State University 3rd Students’ Choice Mass Media Awards.

Robi Domingo, who is part of Knowledge Channel’s “Mathdali,” hosted the program in UST and HAU. In HAU, Robi got a birthday surprise from participants, which included students from other schools such as Asia Pacific College of Advanced Studies in Bataan, Bulacan State University, Our Lady of Fatima University in Pampanga, Pampanga State Agricultural University, Saint Mary’s Angels College of Pampanga, and Tarlac State University.

Next on the schedule of the ABS-CBN Documentary Caravan is San Sebastian College.

“Red Alert” anchor Jeff Canoy, nagpayo sa mga mag-aaral

ABS-CBN DOCU CARAVAN, NAGBIGAY INSPIRASYON SA MGA KABATAAN NA MAG-DOKUMENTARYO

Mahigit sa 800 na mag-aaral ng komunikasyon ang nakakuha ng inspirasyon kung paano gumawa ng mga makabuluhang dokumentaryo sa pagbisita ng ABS-CBN Documentary Caravan noong Setyembre 20 at 27 sa Unibersidad ng Santo Tomas at sa Holy Angel University.

Isang proyekto ng nangungunang media at entertainment company sa bansa, Knowledge Channel, at ng Philippine Association of Communication Educators Foundation, Inc. (PACE), tampok sa ABS-CBN Docu Caravan ang ng mga dokumentaryo ng network at isang open forum kasama ang premyadong ABS-CBN News reporter at “Red Alert” anchor na si Jeff Canoy at mga batikang producer ng ABS-CBN Docucentral.

Layunin ng proyekto nabigyan ng sapat na kaalaman ang mga mag-aaral sa pagbabahagi ng mga makabuluhang kwento sa pamamagitan ng mga dokumentaryo.

Kamakailan lang, umani ng papuri ang dokyu ni Jeff at ng kapwa reporter na si Chiara Zambrano na “Di Ka Pasisiil” tungkol sa kaguluhan sa Marawi. Bilin ni Jeff sa mga mag-aaral, na ibida ang kwento ng mga tao.

“Ayaw ng tao na manood ng nagsasalitang tao lamang. Gusto ng mga manonood na may iba pang nakikita. Ang maipapayo ko dapat laging mayroong aksyon o kaya emosyon sa mga bidyo,” sabi pa niya.

Magandang preparasyon naman ang Docu Caravan sa mga mag-aaral na inanyayahan din ng ABS-CBN, Knowledge Channel, at PACE na sumali sa “Class Project: Intercollegiate Mini-Documentary Competition.”

Maaaring lumahok ang mga estudyateng mula sa mga paaralang mayroong miyembro ng PACE para sa tsansang manalo ng cash prizes at pagkakataon na maipakita ang nagawang dokumentaryo sa Knowledge Channel, na mapapanood sa SKYcable at ABS-CBN TVplus. Ang huling araw ng pagpasa ng entries ay sa Nobyembre 20, 2017. Itatanghal ang mga panalo sa “Pinoy Media Congress Year 12” sa susunod na taon.

“Gusto naming pakinggan ang kwento ninyo at makita ang mga bagay mula sa perspektibo ninyo,” sabi ng Knowledge Channel head na si Danie Sedilla-Cruz sa mga kalahok sa ABS-CBN Docu Caravan.

Pabaong paalala ni Jeff sa mga estudyante na laging isipin kung ano ang makakaantig sa puso ng mga manonood. “Hindi nakakalimot ang puso,” paliwanag ng Most Trusted TV Field Reporter” sa ginanap na Eastern Visayas State University 3rd Students’ Choice Mass Media Awards.

Samantala, nakatanggap din ang Knowledge Channel “Mathdali” host na si Robi Domingo ng isang pa-sorpresa para sa kanyang kaarawan sa HAU, kung saan dumalo rin ang mga estudyante mula sa Asia Pacific College of Advanced Studies sa Bataan, Bulacan State University, Our Lady of Fatima University sa Pampanga, Pampanga State Agricultural University, Saint Mary’s Angels College of Pampanga, at Tarlac State University.
