Project Runway Philippines Season1

  1. In 2008, we undertook the amazing worldwide franchise which was Project Runway. It was my first time doing a reality television show and Fremantle Media was there making sure we would stick to the brand and identity of the show.

    This was under Solar Entertainment, the production house being Unitel Productions, and post-production done at the Engine Room.

    Being the director entailed me to hire the writing crew (Head writer Mihk Vergara, and writing team of Erwin Romulo, Ramon De Veyra, Yvette Tan), which led to all of us handpicking the host (Teresa Herrera), the mentor (Jojie Lloren), and the judges (Rajo Laurel and Apples Aberin). Together, we also scoured the country looking for the contestants -- holding extensive auditions in Manila and Cebu.

    The show had 15 episodes and I am extremely proud of this because I was also supervising the sound design and mix of the show. I am very happy with hiring Diego Mapa to score the entire season, also using a lot of his Eggboy x Spazzkid stuff. I was deep into the post-production of the show -- being the online editor (or co-online editor) for every one of the episodes.

    This was my blood, sweat, and tears for a year and a half of my life, and I attribute my weight gain of around 30 pounds due to stress eating while doing the post-production of this show.

    All the other episodes can be found in my Project Runway Philippines Channel, which is:
