Sept. 24 2016, 2:40 p.m. - MASTERING the basics of story-telling is important to succeed in animation, a Thomasian animator stressed in a forum last Sept. 20.
"Think inside the box first before going outside [because] you have to know the rules before you play them," civil engineering alumnus Armand Serrano said in a lecture at the Beato Angelico Audio-Visual Room.
"In animation, it is important that you have a compelling story, appealing characters and a believable world."
Serrano lamented the lack of Filipino animators in the industry.
THE LATEST additions to UST’s roster of award-winning writers have one advice for their fellow Thomasians who want to make it to the literary scene—persevere.
On the 65th year of the Carlos Palanca Memorial Literary Awards last September, the works of Thomasians John Carlo Pacala, Lance Lauren Santiago and Brylle Tabora were added to the competition’s 2,278 winning pieces, which include the works of renowned Thomasian writers Nick Joaquin and Bienvenido Lumbera.
Pacala, who won first prize in the Maikling Kuwento category for his story “Ang Reynang Espada at mga Pusa,” used a homosexual prisoner as his subject. The story is about love, life and freedom.
