I've learned one general thing in filmmaking: to work with one strong idea. One strong concept that pushes you to work in a certain way artistically.
Alfred believes that the authenticity of cinematography is in its simplicity, but it is never instant. It is discovered with passion, crafted with a meticulous eye, and rediscovered several times over by an audience. That is the power of cinema.
Alfred recently finished filming the first season of Forever Sucks, a rom-com web series produced by D5 Studio starring Jasmine Curtis. He also worked as a Lighting Director for ABS-CBN's primetime television series, "Pangako Sa'yo".
His filmography includes several short films and two feature-length films: Diane Ventura’s "Mulat" (Awaken), [Finalist 2014 MMFF New Wave category], and Bang Bang Alley, a crime anthology directed by a trio of filmmakers including Ely Buendia and Yan Yuzon. He also shot and co-directed "Bakas ng Pagbangon" (Traces of Awakening), a documentary produced by the European Union.
Every shot I have ever made has been a compromise in some way. No image has ever been as good as the one I envisioned in my mind's eye.
