From the Fully Booked Blog: Co-creator of The Walking Dead, Charlie Adlard answers questions like “Which character can’t you wait to kill off?” And “Describe Robert Kirkman in 3 words.” We also took the opportunity to do a geek culture face-off with Adlard. Thanks for visiting Manila, Charlie!
From www.carlosandveronica.net — In 2011, childhood friends Isel Garcia and Kayo Cosio took 2 days to write and shoot this little run-and-gun short film. This was in the days leading up to Isel’s departure from Manila to live in New York City.
The piece was intended to reflect the sentiments that the two had towards the changes that were happening in their respective lives. But it also ended up serving as a sort of visual love-letter to Manila and the people who they love in it.
Though all photography was completed in 2011, the footage was stored while Isel left, finished her course in SLC and graduated with pride. We have chosen to release it now — two and a half years later — in celebration of her journey, as she returns home to Manila for Christmas.
Welcome back, Isel. We are excited to hear the stories you have to tell.
Directed by Kayo Cosio.
Lori is a dream to interview. She pretty much knows exactly what she wants to say, then says it a way that drags you into whatever she’s feeling. We shot the interview on Monday, took a little b-roll on wednesday, and after only about an hour or so of editing, the video was ready for the public. She was just that easy a subject to work with.
To be honest, the client was a bit concerned about the longer running time of this video, but we felt that the viewer would enjoy listening to Lori just go on and on as if you were speaking to her one-on-one. As she spoke about Chef Him Uy De Baron of Nomama’s Braised Wagyu Beef Cheeks, all of us in the shoot staff simply melted in our seats. This woman’s love for food is contagious. Enjoy!
Here’s a fun little bit that we put together for DMCI Homes, almost 2 years ago! Has it been that long? I remember this shoot was done with a single camera and squeezed in during a lunchbreak! It was a fun, experimental time for us in the company, many individuals wearing more than one hat, doing more than one job. And we really stretched our “do more with less” core value. Nowadays, we like to work with better gear and get higher quality output, but it’s always nice to look back and see where you came from. It’s still very much a work I am proud of because it demonstrated what was possible on a tight schedule and budget.
Here’s an excerpt from the post I just put up on www.fullybookedonline.com/blog:
I arrived at Vinyl on Vinyl for final set-up on the Thursday of the HERAKUT exhibit opening. Both Hera and Akut were donning brand new “UKU LELE” t-shirts designed in the style of “RUN DMC.” Big smiles on their faces. Turns out that they had invited the neighbors over for some impromptu jamming in the exhibit. “We will shoot a video of them playing here in front of our paintings,” Akut told me…
I really enjoyed the songs that the duo played for us. The whole thing was very Breaking Bad.
Thanks, Ukulele Philippines! And to Pao Gumba & Sanlie Labadia, you two are the masters! www.facebook.com/ukephilippines

Hera + Akut = Herakut. During their live-paint demo in Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street, the street art duo sent a message to Manila. “We were always looking for a place where the little things matter,” Hera wrote out with their Montana Gold spray paints before attacking the canvas with acrylic. Akut then steps in, filling in the eyes with his signature photorealistic style. Trivia: The painting includes a portrait of Fully Booked Managing Director, Jaime Daez.

If you’ve visited Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street in the last month, you would have probably noticed the massive book sculpture towering over our atrium. Mike Stilkey, the man behind that amazing piece of work, has built a reputation for himself on this unique brand of expression that has captured peoples’ attention in cities around the world.
Mike’s an awesome individual, a well balanced and funny guy. We totally enjoyed hanging with him and his gallerist Beau Basse of www.lebasseprojects.com during their stay in Manila to set the sculpture up. In the gaps in work, we found a few moments to film this video feature about Mike’s life and philosophy. Enjoy the show 🙂
We showed up at Fully Booked’s Free Comic Book Day with an idea and no assurances that it would work. The best thing is that everyone had fun!
Working with one of our clients, Fully Booked, we sat down with contemporary artist, Kent Williams (Hellblazer, Wolverine Havok Meltdown, Amalgum, Eklektikos) to discuss his work, among other things. Kent — being a teacher too — also had much to say about young, aspiring artists and the future of his personal artistic journey. He also had some interesting perspectives about the creative industry today

Part 2: Advice to the Aspiring Artist
Part 3: Comics, the State of Art, and the Future

We also covered Kent’s entire Q&A session at the Bonifacio High Street store and have posted the entire video here: http://fullybookedonline.com/blog/view/1611?
What is success for an artist? And what does it mean to ‘make it’ in the competitive industry that surrounds art?
A few months ago Vinyl on Vinyl at The Collective hosted renowned NYC-based artist Tara McPherson in a series of events supported by Fully Booked. The Manila tour took Tara to De La Salle University’s College of St. Benilde and University of the Philippines’ College of Fine Arts for two art forums where she was able to engage both budding and established Filipino artists in conversation about the creation of art as well as the business behind it.
