Next week, I will start filming my Baybayin documentary. Over the past 2 months, I’ve been busy organizing, writing and figuring out how to do this ambitious project. My biggest issue was, what kind of Baybayin film do I make? I don’t consider myself a scholar. I don’t have the funds or the time to travel all around the Philippines to document various scripts still used today.
So, what’s the story? I don’t intend to make a National Geographic type of doc that’s for sure. The truth is, I don’t know yet. That’s why I’m going to the Philippines at the end of the month to find one. I plan to interview quite a few people regarding Baybayin and Filipino culture in general.
A couple notes:
- This project is currently self financed but I’m open for sponsorships. I have a few ideas if your business is interested. Contact me at info (at) baybayin.com.
- I’m planning to attend a couple Baybayin related events while in Manila. Follow me on the Baybayin Facebook page for the latest about this project.
