Jeff M. De Guzman shows Lakas ng Pinas in digital animation

Manila, Philippines – The visual FX and animation industry has taken off in the last decade, and has long featured Filipino talents among its roster of designers and directors. One of the most respected names in the industry is Filipino digital artist and creative director Jeff De Guzman, who has long inspired numerous kids and kids-at-heart by bringing to life much-loved characters in Hollywood blockbusters like Pacific Rim, Iron Man, Transformers, Mission Impossible 4, Star Trek, and Battleship.

Born and raised in the Philippines, Jeff defied the odds by making it to the big leagues of animation both in the US and in the UK. A self-taught artist, he started his career by joining contests before getting noticed by Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), a Lucas Film company.

Today, he is a sought-after digital artist, best known for producing computer-generated graphic images for live-action films. Despite his international success, he wishes to work on more projects in the Philippines in order to push the limits of local animation.

Jeff was given this opportunity, and the chance to share the stories of Pinoy pride through the latest TV Commercial (TVC) of Cobra Energy Drink led by world champion, Nonito Donaire Jr. Also featured are the Cobra Philippine Dragon Boat Team, BMX rider Danny Calaug, and Philippine Elite Triathlete Arland Macasieb.

He shared his expertise by spearheading the graphic development from the creation of digital environments down to the robots used. Just like in the Hollywood movies, the Cobra endorsers interacted with life-like robots in scenes showcasing their own individual interpretation of what it means to be the Lakas ng Pinas.

He likened the TVC to that of international sci-fi flicks, “Cobra really pushed the boundaries and the quality of the commercials both in the aesthetic and creative fields.”

Abe Cipriano, AVP for Marketing for Non-Alcoholic Beverages of Asia Brewery is proud to work with another world-class Filipino talent that matched the excellence of the endorsers.  “We wanted the commercial to reflect the strength, perseverance, and determination of the Filipino spirit. We hope that this inspires Filipinos, even in a small way.”

Apple Chronicles: Hello Again, San Francisco!

As I only have one free day in California, I decided to spend it in one of my favorite cities in the world: San Francisco.  It’s been more than three and a half years since I’ve last been here and I still have some unfinished business to settle.

Apple Chronicles: California-Bound

After spending the week, it’s time to move onto my next business destination, California.  This would be my first domestic flight in a foreign country in over eight years!  It’s a lot less glamorous though than my earlier flights as I went on economy class. This is part of a series ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ […]

It’s the third day of the year.  New Year’s two days ago already.  Yet, it’s not too late to start.  And I, am doing just that.

Best Nine of 2017

I can’t believe that we are now on the last few days of 2017!  As much as I’d like to say that this year flew by quickly, I also realized that a lot of things also happened that seemed like so long ago.  And there are nine experiences that made this year very memorable for me.
