Mother’s Gift (2014) from Girard Tecson on Vimeo. Synopsis: In a remote village in Indonesia, a young girl gathers recyclables to buy her mother a birthday gift. I filmed this during April 2014 in Jakarta, Indonesia. I was new in the area and it had very interesting locations, way different that the ones I’m used to in New York. I wanted to film something simple to showcase the location and the people that resides there. It only took 3 hours … Continue reading
Doritos Monster (Commercial) (2014) from Girard Tecson on Vimeo. This was pretty awesome to make. It was our first time casting and working with child actors, which made it a fun shoot. Another aspect that made this shoot awesome was making the monster come alive. It was pretty cool to see it from a drawing to being live on set.
Shot in 2009 with a Sony DV tape Camcorder (standard definition) with a cheap mono mic that’s taped to a mop pole and a lot of lamps for lights. This was my first big project back in the days and we didn’t really know what we were doing. I just started film production classes, some started acting classes and while some doesn’t have any expertise what so ever, just the passion and the drive to make something awesome. We did … Continue reading
For this year’s Valentines Day video, we got a chance to film with a dude with a Red Ranger costume. And it looks legit! And of course, the ever so beautiful Brooke Kelly decided to work with us again since she’s a fan of Power Rangers. So yeah, this heavy dialogue driven comedy short was something funny while being sweet at the same time.
This was another awesome collaboration with the talented Kevin Yee. He composed and made this awesome song, and even choreograph with it. I got the whole Dayside crew to take part of it, and have them dance! It’s a fun little skit!
Astig, New York (2014) from Girard Tecson on Vimeo. I liked the idea of a Filipino American meeting a Filipino tourist and had to show that person around New York City. “Astig, New York” is based on Vincent Lin’s “Love, NY” but the Filipino version rather than Korean. We got to shoot at Payag restaurant which was nice of them, and many awesome places in New York City. It was pretty cold then, but we stood our ground and finished … Continue reading
This is awesome collab with the talented Kevin Yee. We came up with an awesome story about an Asian American superhero and turned it into a musical! With Kevin’s awesome music skills, he did all the songs, and our production skills, we got this awesome superhero musical short. Hey, it got an Official from Dragon Con Film Festival 2013. Probably that Albert Chan song got stuck in their heads.
Our 3rd and final entry for this year’s Doritos Crash the Superbowl commercial contest was this video starring two of my cosplay friends: Gidget & AVYXEN. It’s a twist on objectification of women and having them more dominant than the men in the commercial. I hope people will get the message.
One of my favorite entry for the Doritos Crash the Superbowl commercial contest. In this one, we got the beautiful red head, Brooke Kelly, and our very own Seth Baird to star in this commercial. We also got to film at a real medical office. It turned out pretty awesome as you can see! My girlfriend actually came up with this idea. I wonder what she is trying to tell me…
We have a lot of cool viking costume props and this was a no brainer to create a funny and fun viking skit for the Doritos Crash the Superbowl commercial contest. It was fun to make, specially being outside with the viking costumes and having pedestrians stop and take pictures as we were filming. Yup, it was a sight to see!
