    Roqué’s Birthday Film Release: Embracing the Ephemeral (08/28/21)

    TODAY, AUGUST 28, IS MY BIRTHDAY!!! In what has now become a tradition, I am releasing one of my films today. Embracing the Ephemeral was a film I made as my Creative Thesis Project of the University Honors College of Middle Tennessee State University during my senior year. It features my family and fellow Filipino immigrants in my community.

    I wanted to make a contemplative documentary exploring the nature of immigration as it effects a person’s culture and identity across time. This project took a year and a half to complete. I was able to secure a grant to buy a camera and audio equipment, and it took a lot of work to finish.

    I am personally very proud of this project, and I am happy to finally share it with the world.

    Please enjoy watching this film and share it with anyone who you think might appreciate it.

    Thank you for watching!!

    Roqué’s Friday Films: The Kawachinagano Japanese Garden

    Today is the first Friday of the month of August, and it is time to release my newest film project for my YouTube channel. I visited the Kawachinagano Japanese Garden in Carmel, IN, back in June of this year while I was there filming a different project. I was so taken with the place that I decided to film various parts of it. What you see today is my completed vision for this showcase. Complete with brand new poetry and music, this film conveys the intention of this public space as a place for reflection and tranquility. I happen to love Japanese gardens, and this was the perfect opportunity to apply my filmmaking and musical skills toward something I genuinely enjoy.

    Thank you for taking the time to watch this new film!

    There is definitely more to come in the months ahead!

    Roqué’s Friday Films: Art In Motion (04/02/21)

    It’s that time again! Time for another Friday Film! This time, there’s a mixed bag of fun stuff including live-action art creation, stop-motion segments, harmonized singing, original poetry, and chopsticks!!

    I had a lot of fun making this piece. Drawing and stop-motion are two activities that are incredibly calming and meditative. I also love to make harmonies when I sing, and so, this project was an excuse to do many of my favorite activities.

    For the foreseeable future, I will be releasing a new film on the first Friday of every month. My life has suddenly been filled with exciting new projects, and I am only human. This new schedule will give me more breathing room and mental space to keep going and creating.

    Thank you all for watching, and I hope you enjoy “Art In Motion.”
