Why and for whom do you film today?
Feature by: Alexis A. Tioseco

Antoinette Jadaone

It took me a while before I finally answered this question. I probably was thinking too hard or too far. Personally, I think that although it has been ages since the Lumieres' first films, and there is more technology and technique today, the reason for making films is still somehow similar. We still make films for selfish reasons. By "selfish", I mean that films are still personal to the filmmaker. It is the fulfillment of some dream—whether it is to express himself or herself, or to entertain a large audience. There are stories that are too good to be left [as] just concepts in the head. And so we film, for the filmmakers' sake.
