Students perform in First Animation Magazine Launch



Second year MCCID College students were invited to render the Philippine National Anthem in Filipino Sign Language during the launching of maiden issue of the Philippine Animation Magazine last March 26, Thursday, at Eastwood Mall in Libis, Quezon City.

Among those who performed were the Maricris Siping, who made the sign language interpretation and all 12 students of Diploma in Arts and Computer Design Technology class. Lucky McGill Paltep choreographed the interpretative dance.



The magazine launching was a brainchild of powerhouse animation industry leaders in the Philippines headed by Ms. Joy Bacon of Animation Council of the Philippines, Inc. together with Ms. Lina Valdez, Manager of Guhit Pinoy Animation Studio and Mr. Eric Tansingco, Proprietor of Take One Animation Studio.

Among those featured in the magazine is the blog review about the Philippine animated movie \”Dayo, Sa Mundo ng Elementalia\” written by MCCID Training Director Jojo Esposa taken from his blog \”Filipino Deaf from the Eyes of a Hearing Person\”. Also, MCCID College contributed a 1/8 size advertisement that appeared at one of the pages.

During the program\’s raffle of prizes, MCCID Training Director won the sample design templates.



The Philippine Animation Magazine is produced and published by AnimaDreams Inc.. This is the first of its kind ever to be launched in the country. The first issue of 1,000 copies were distributed for free by the organizers during the event.

This quarterly magazine featured stories about Filipino animators, game developers and animation training. Future issues will again feature local contents including local talents animation studio or an animation school. It will tackle both trends in the markets and events/happening in Asia and the world of animation. It will also talk about the latest technology. It will be an avenue for artists/animators to showcase their ideas, character designs and their thoughts on Philippine animation.

Guhit Animation Studio, one of the premier digital and 2D animation companies in the country and an active member of Animation Council of the Philippines, has forged an agreement with MCCID to assist in the training of our deaf students to become professional animators. Hopefully, the animation training will commence on June 2009.

    so nasan na ngayon ang 2nd and on-going issues ng magazine?
    wala na….ganun lang….pinagkakitaan lang yung mga sponsors….naglabas lang ng cheap printed low-quality magazine para kumita lang sa pang sariling kapakanan…..hay naku….isa yan sa dahilan na bakit nauubusan tayo ng clients sa animation dito sa pinas eh….
    so it means kailangan uli ng mga bagong event and sponsorships at solicitations para maka paglabas uli ng magazine…..
    kailangan jan eh gumawa kayo ng team sa publishing na yan para mag tuloy-tuloy, hindi yung kayo-kayo lang….
    maraming nagsasabi na pinagkakitaan nyo lang yang pag rpoduce ng magazine eh…..
    at hawang-hawa sa quality pa lang ng printing eh tinipid na eh…..
    haaaayyyys ayusin nyo naman….
