Rey Major to the Third Power – When Robots Talk

I remember when I was a kid I had this infatuation with robots. My sister asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I had to take a minute and think about it. While I was thinking I looked for inspiration and asked her what she wanted to be, and she said she wanted to be a Bruja (Witch).

It was either a witch or a firefighter. I don’t remember right now, but the point is I ended up saying I want to build robots when I grow up. My sister isn’t a witch or firefighter and I don’t build robots, but I did make a song about robots. The song was inspired by a steampunk type vibe.

You can hear the sounds of air escaping from the robots, the metallic pounding of industrious labor, and the electrical whirring of a robot … talking.

It’s on my YouTube Channel and my music artist name is Rey Major to the Third Power or “RMΒ³”. Thanks in advance.

Bonifacio Global City: A Vlog of the Condo I Stayed In.

BACKGROUND: In 2019 I had the privilege to visit my fathers home country; the Philippines. I flew with Philippine Airlines – by the way they sell your data to third parties – and it was a no stop flight averaging 16 hours from LA to Manila.

It was long and my feet swelled up really bad, but on the bright side I got to see Crazy Rich Asians and damn near cried out loud with joy. It was a good movie and I recommend watching it.

I also learned the Fresh Prince of Bel Air is on Netflix in other countries, but is not on Netflix in the United States. Fresh Prince is one of my childhood shows, how can it not be on Netflix in the United States!

Okay, I am starting to rant and that’s not what this post is about. It’s about my trip to Bonifacio Global City (BGC).

BGC is a lovely area and is metropolitan in every sense of the word. I would wake up, put my shoes on, take the elevator down, and walk to the nearby Starbucks every morning. They have huge skyscrapers, modern shopping centers, friendly locals, jeepneys and tricycles, but everything you could want and need is walking distance.

If and when I move to the Philippines I would start here, learn Tagalog, and venture to higher ground.

Performance Activism: Racism Bit and Banter.

BACKGROUND:

In order to satisfy my requirements for a bachelor of arts in communication studies I took a class in theatre and performing arts. The class focused on activism and creating positive change, through creative expression and improvisation.

Neither the guy holding the unplugged microphone nor my past self with the long hair are racist, but we do acknowledge that racism exists and are thus not ignorant to the reality of the social issue. Race is a social construct and thus can be deconstructed through social means.

Sabong at the Angeles City Arena in the Philippines.

Cockfighting is a cultural phenomena I got to experience in my journey to the Philippines. I would like to share it with you, but I must warn you, it is graphic; hence likely disturbing to some. Watch at your own discretion.

Hip Hop Video Prototype.

I made a music video! well, I “directed a music video!” is probably more accurate. I didn’t rap, I didn’t make the beats; but, I did shoot, edit, and add effects to it. I learned a lot while editing this video so I posted it on YouTube:

The artist who raps goes by Da Grizzly if you dig his music and would like to search for more of his songs. If you would like to know who all the people in the video are I posted their info at the end of the video in the credits.

I used Adobe Premiere Pro as my non-linear editing system. I used YouTube and LinkedIn Learning to teach myself how to do the effects, and for guidance on what “hip hop” videos are supposed to look like.

The camera I used to shoot the video was a Sony A7III and I shot at 4k 24p and 1080 120p. If you would like to know more information about how I shot or what I shot the video let me know in the comments or contact me page.

Other than that, what are you doing still reading? Watch the video! Subscribe. Share. Create.

I used to play basketball when I was a little kid; about the same age as some of these girls, but a little younger. However, I was not nearly as good as them. I was the kid who joined a team way more experienced than I was, but the coach let me in because my nephew was really good at basketball and we carpooled together anyway.

Long story short, it was the first time, not the last lol, that I was laughed at by an entire crowd during a live game. I had huge anxiety growing up so instead of blocking, or guarding my opponent, I chose to hide behind and pretend to block. I kind of ran around in circles and tried to pretend they werent laughing at my lack of skills. Needless to say, that was the last time I played as a kid.

When I was in middle school I ended playing everyday since it was the only fun thing to do while I waited for my parents to get off of work. I got pretty good and its the only sport game I truly enjoy playing for fun other than skateboarding. I don’t skateboard anymore though because I lost so much teeth from the falling and the speeding down hills.

Pretend PSA for Communications@Syracuse on VA Medical

Pretend PSA for Communications@Syracuse on VA Medical

As required for my multimedia storytelling class, I have uploaded a Public Service Announcement wrote, directed, and filmed by me. It starts with Daniel having a nightmare, hearing a grenade explode, and waking up terrified.

She goes back to sleep, blinks into the next scene, and researches on her computer how to get help. Henry, playing a video game, tells her she will regret calling, but her nightmares and her newly acquired knowledge online, convinces her to make the call.

I want to thank my Ate Nina and Alan for volunteering as my guinea pigs in my academic endeavors and my journey as a filmmaker. Thanks for being reliable in an unreliable world. Mahal Kita!

Hey ya’ll. This was a video I did not too long ago, and my professor thought it was one of my better creations. I then thought to myself, “why not share it with my WordPress fam?” So, Here it is. Let me know in the comments below if you found this on WordPress, LinkedIn, or Twitter. Thanks for watching!

For the camera nerds like me: I used a GH5S with the 12-35mm 2.8f, and Cine V profile. Premiere Pro was my editing software, and I used a Microsoft desktop computer with a 1080ti graphics card for workflow.

Hey  WordPress Fam,

I made this video for a class i’m taking; Multimedia Storytelling. I like the colors in the film. I used my GH5s, a white balance card(but its actually grey), and the profile Cine V on my camera. Then, I edited it on Adobe Premiere Pro, found royalty free music on https://www.epidemicsound.com, and exported it in 1080p 30 fps as a MOV file.

Let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions for future videos on my YouTube Channel.

Thanks! ^_^
