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!!
It is time for my very first new film of 2021 to arrive!
I present to you “Winter’s Light,” and I’m so excited to finally share this with all of you! This short film is experimental and contemplative in nature. I filmed it in the woods surrounding my house. Along with the spoken word poetry, I composed and performed the music. This film has been an absolute joy to make! Thank you for taking the time to watch it.

I also have a new Patreon account from which I am able to collect funds to offset the costs of creating my films and music. All patrons get an intimate and advanced look at the projects I’m creating and their support plays a vital role in the art I make. Check out my Patreon site here: https://www.patreon.com/roquemarcelo
In two weeks, I premiere my next film. Until then, I hope you enjoy “Winter’s Light.”
Hugs to you,
Happy New Year! Holy Cow! What a year it’s been! It is time for another Friday film release! This week, I feature a nostalgic look back at over 30 films that I released during 2020.
I have learned so much more about filmmaking because of all this work. I spent countless hours filming and editing each of these films. I can’t believe I did all of this.
Thank you to everyone who has watched my films every week during the last few months! I am thrilled that you took the time to enjoy what I’ve done.
I hope your 2021 will be filled with joy and lots of love.
