The Road to MCC School Tour: UP Diliman

Posted in Animation, Comics, Podcasts, Seminars by J.R. Bumanglag on July 14, 2009

I never thought it could happen…but it did! After months of listening to comics podcasts day in and day out, I finally decided to record a podcast of my own – not entirely mine though. It was on a gloomy Saturday afternoon at UP Diliman that the first leg of The Road to Manila Comic Con began. With my girlfriend-sidekick Joy accompanying me to the seminar, I made up my mind to record the event. There’s one thing I learned from attending these kinds of seminars, talks and discussions catered for aspiring artists and writers – once it’s announced, you wouldn’t want to miss it for the world. Unfortunately, not a lot people can attend due to time constraints, conflicting schedules or just plain bad luck. Luckily, this podcast is willing to step in to that void. I know the feeling of missing out on the opportunity to learn more from professionals who have made a mark in the industry. It’s not every day that they have time to share their experiences, advices and critics to those who are willing to listen.

Hosting the seminar was (far left) MCC Orgnizer Ernest Hernandez. The featured panelists were comic book professionals (from left to right) Harvey Tolibao, Jay David Ramos, Heubert Michael, Carlo Pagulayan, Ernest Jocson and guests from Suspended Animation Media Abet Ongkingco, Yuri Timg and (not pictured) Vishnu Chua.

Note! The discussions are mostly bilingual – Taglish if you may. Audio quality is a bit rough, but I was able to clean it for increased clarity. A big round of thanks to the organizers of the upcoming Manila Comic Con, Lunarock and the UP Diliman College of Fine Arts for making this event possible.

Runtime is 2 hours and 32 minutes.
