POWER Mac Center recently gathered young creatives, mostly photographers and videographers, in an event called Lounge to help them build connections in the industry.

They interacted and learned first-hand from professionals like director Brillante Mendoza and Shaira Luna.

In partnership with LaCie, a French brand of digital storage solutions, Power Mac Center was able to get internationally acclaimed director Mendoza to talk about his experience in the film industry and give the young creatives tips in filmmaking.

“I use several cameras on the set. I use three to four cameras on the set. The files on the set are heavy. We make sure that right after the shoot or even during the shoot actually, we have to transfer (the files) and LaCie is really very useful in that aspect,” Mendoza told his audience.

Mendoza is an internationally acclaimed director who helmed “Ma’ Rosa,” “Taklub” and “Thy Womb,” among others.

For her part, professional fashion and advertising photographer Luna talked about what drives her to follow her passion in photography and how LaCie complements her on-the-go lifestyle and keeps her file transfer speedy and protected. (PR)
