The sunset is the last taste of beauty my village witnesses as when the night comes, horror takes over. 
Wolfpac reunite for “Forever” (Short Film-noir): Scoring (Christian and Nikolo)

Well, yeah man! `Reunited again to score for one night for Christian’s short film-noir entitle “Forever”. It’s funny cause I was supposed to stay for two nights but I always do stupid, clumsy decisions and you know, I ended up booking my return flight right away for that night. But nevertheless, the experience was great. I think we worked it well again especially with the wolf pac connection going on. Nothing beats brother team work!

Christian’s short-film noir, “Forever” takes a suspense, thrilling, weird kind of treatment. It’s exciting, mysterious and strangely continuous even in it’s non-linear story telling. And I find it really nice that our wolf, Christian edited this film personally. Now, you can see how he really tells his story visually through his cuts and camera movements. 

I loved designing the score for his film. It was such a learning process for me even with just a short span of time and  cause I’ve been wanting to score for a suspense themed film for a quite a while now. It’s been an itch and this moment was just right. Also, it just adds more juice that it’s in noir. That way, I get to experiment more. `Sort of like try to duplicate classical 1950’s scoring but with the modern twist. And so I ended up doing strange telephone reverse stings and more delusional piano scales. But what made everything extra complete for me was when I experimented with the wedding church bells. For Christian, he knew that this story wanted to go reverse to show what really happened and that’s what we did for the scoring as well. 

I can’t wait `til he finally finishes it and upload it for people to see. I can’t wait either for Wolfpac’s next film to come out. `Til then, it’s script writings, story-boarding and more editing for us. `Ayt. Beast!

"Daryl"
I’ve recently submitted my project proposal for a possible publication of my comics “Marianing”. I hope they love my work and Publish as early as this season. 
A rare photo of Marianing with his two sons at his house. At the age of 80, this old man still manages to bare children! The makings of a legend… 

MARIANING
Don Julio
-Marianing-
He was born of a special gift to see and communicate with the Enkanto and ghost dimension. Lost inside the forest, he came upon a black book floating against the stream’s current. And this is where the story of Marianing began. 
Godzilla Fanart by yours truly
I just watched the movie and indeed it was a classic. Righteous!:)
"Asuang"
Marianing’s enemies, the Asuangs are creatures that feed on human guts and filth. It’s the same breed of creatures who murdered his wife, Bernardina. Although Asuangs in the Philippines are famous for the story that it’s humans cursed to have this mutation or possession, in the universe of Marianing, Asuangs are said to be demented Enkantos who escaped the gates and walls of Aluna. Most of them aren’t humans at all. They’re just demonic creatures disguised as humans hungry for their meat for some logical reason. 
"Surrounded"
Marianing
GODZILLA Fan art
-Done by yours truly
I can’t wait. `Goin to watch it tomorrow :D
"Bernardina"
Bernardina, that’s her name. Marianing’s wife at a young age when he was just 15 years old and Bernardina otherwise known as “Binay” was just 13 years old. It was common back then during 1901 in the rural areas of Philippines when couples marry early. Marianing and Bernardina were childhood sweethearts and proved that they loved each other ever since. But when Marianing disappeared when he was just 10 years old, both lost hope that they’d see each other again soon. The story after follows in the future chapters of the Comics.
Bernardina plays a big role in the universe of Marianing. At the start of the Animated short, Bernardina is seen being “murdered” by a bunch of mysterious, horrific creatures. Perhaps that incident is where the first parts of the volumes revolves on. 
Meanwhile, you might have noticed that the style for this illustration isn’t exactly the same as the one you’ve been seeing from the recent Marianing Volume1 comics update. That’s because this will be the style for the future Marianing’s comic. An article about that topic to be featured soon! 
Thanks for dropping by!

W.I.P. (work in progress) of ” Arise the forest demon “

This illustration portrays an unknown monster showing up in what happens to be a journey in the middle of the jungle of Marianing (left side) and a fellow “Cape Society” member (right side). The speech bubble in Marianing is suppose to say “What’s that suppose to be?”, asking it to his fellow cape brother as if they always encounter this kind of situation. 

I’ve screen-captured the whole process of this illustration so that I could post on the net and people could see how I make them. I hope to upload it  the soonest! :)

Marianing Comics update:

Currently, it’s getting proof-read and edited by young film-maker, director and writer, Christian Lat! So fortunate to have him as my editor since we worked already on a few projects and our interests go the same way. `Can’t wait once it’s done being edited and get in the shelves soon! :)
