    Roqué’s 2021 Year In Review!

    Hello Friends!

    I made a quick recap of the films I have released and featured on my YouTube channel. I released fewer films this year, but this meant that I had more time and space to create pieces that resonated more fully with what I wanted to say. The end result is a small collection of films that I am very proud of.

    Thank you all for watching!

    There is much more to come in 2022!

    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!!

    Roque’s Friday Films (03/19/21): Winter’s Light

    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.
