MANILA, PHILIPPINES, SEPTEMBER 6, 2021 — Seven (7) animation projects will comprise the biggest Philippine delegation to pitch in the 12th Kre8tif! Conference and Content Festival in Malaysia, happening from September 8 to 10 on the Conference’s virtual platform.
The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), in partnership with Kre8tif!, issued a call for Philippine animation projects last August for the Elevator Pitch event, a platform devised for selected studios to pitch their original Intellectual Property (IP) to a panel of buyers within 5 minutes. FDCP has participated in Kre8tif! To represent the Filipino animation and film industry since 2018.
The seven animated projects participating in the Elevator Pitch are Mark Lenard Mendoza’s 2D animated feature “Rage Radio” by Friendly Foes Creative Studio, Karla Circe Consolacion and Mookie Tamara’s 2D traditional animation series “Sitio Balete” by meowsmouse, Manny Angeles and Avid Liongoren’s adult animation feature “The Jerry Action Bonanza” by TWENTY MANILA and ROCKETSHEEP, and Lawrence Panganiban’s 2D animation series “Solemn Vow” by Enigma Kai.
Completing the list are Keith Sicat’s 2D animations series “OFW” by KINO ARTS, Ceazara Vidallo’s 2D digital series “Not Not the Hairless Kapre” by MadScientist Media Production, and Ramon del Prado and Meryll Yan’s animated show on Youtube, “Miming and Friends."
“In the past years, we have brought exceptional Filipino animators to Malaysia to pitch their animation projects in Kre8tif!. This year, seven projects were selected, making this the biggest number of projects to have been selected to participate. Congratulations to the delegates, this triumph is significant to the celebration of Philippine Film Industry Month, especially to our aspiring Filipino animators,” said FDCP Chairperson and CEO Liza Diño.
Kre8tif! was established in 2009 by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) under the Ministry of Communication and Multimedia Malaysia with a mandate to develop the digital content industry in Malaysia.
This year’s edition of the Elevator Pitch will run from September 8 to 10 in the MY Digital Creativity Festival, a month-long event by Kre8tif! and LEVEL UP KL.
