For my segment “Edumacate Me!” we had friends from the UFO Studios and UFO Workshops come in to talk about independent film making. They talked about the ins and outs of indie film making and the most important parts – financing your film.
See more info about them on my other post – http://vincegolangco.com/mellow-94-7-dj-vince-g/ufo-sighting-on-the-edumacate-me-learn-indie-film-making-on-the-g-spot/
edber mamisao (digital filmmaker)
Filipino–Canadian filmmaker Edber Mamisao’s advocacy is to make everyone able to tell their own stories, by teaching them how to make their own films and empowering them in the process. To him it isn’t about having expensive equipment, it’s using what you have to efficiently tell the story.

wilson go (stand up comic teaching “the art of funny” for the 2nd year at ufo)
A rare bird in the local comedy landscape where tasteless slapstick and degrading insult humor seem to dominate, Wilson Go believes that laughter is one of mankind’s primary instincts along with crying and sex. Go also sees comedy as a way of dealing with and examining our personal pains and insecurities. Please come share the laughter and truth with him in his “STAND BY ME” A STAND-UP COMEDY WORKSHOP

World’s First Roller Coaster
June 13, 1884. The world’s first roller coaster opened on this day in 1884 at Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY. Built and later patented by LaMarcus Thompson, the “Gravity Pleasure Switchback Railway” boasted two parallel 600-foot tracks that descended from 50 feet. The cars traveled at six miles per hour. Riders paid five cents each for their rides. The roller coaster was a sensation, and soon amusement parks all over the US and the world featured them.
Moment of Zen
“Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!” ~Bob Marley
