In this special Monday night "Focus on the Philippines" series, Film Lab Presents a short animated creation by John Day of a series of events and stories about a small rural town in the Philippines. Special Hosted by actresses Jennifer Betit Yen, Erin Quill and Lia Chang! Edited by Jason Wong! About creator John Day: As a digital media artist, John is interested in animated narratives that deal with memory. He combines various techniques and materials to develop imagery, including animated collage, mixed media drawing, altered photographs, text and miniature sets. He uses voice-over storytelling, sound effects and music in the sound tracks. Instead of using traditional story lines, he presents a variety of sequences that can be played in any order, so that the viewer puts together a "portrait" of the subject. For MATUD NILA (According to Them), there are 23 sequences that can be played at random to create an impression of a small town in the Philippines.
