Quark Henares, TeamManila & The One School introduce: SHIFT (School of Intermedia, Film & Technology)
Monday, May 18, 2009
|I just received an email from Tintin Pangilinan of SHIFT, so am posting her little favor in my site. I also support Independent Films and the famous clothing and lifestyle brand, TeamManila.|
I'm Tintin, Press Relations and Communications Officer for SHIFT. I thought our school would appeal to you and hopefully you'd be interested in featuring us in your blog :) SHIFT started only recently with our summer courses, Independent Film Immersion with Quark Henares and Graphic Design with Jowee Alviar of TeamManila. So far we've been pretty successful with those subjects and they have been totally kick-ass and now we're pushing with our 6-month certificate courses starting this June. We also have 1-year diploma courses and 2-year Associate Degree courses."
WHAT THE ONE SCHOOL IS ABOUT:
There are many specialized schools at the High School and Grade School levels which cater to the different learning styles that young people have. By College however, most school teach using the same, traditional methods that have been employed for generations. The one school believes in personal instruction which happens in small classroom environments; where students learn how to speak up, be unique and create whatever learning structure works best for them. For all our programs there is a strong entrepreneurship focus since the last thing we want to breed are starving artists.
We think there is a need for schools that offer alternative education options in the Philippines, where students are not taught through the same instruction methods of past generations. Not that there is anything wrong with traditional education. After all we were all products of this method. We just think that the way the other schools are going about the education biz is not always that effective for some kinds of students. Hopefully we can be an alternative to the mainstream.
THE ONE SCHOOL INTRODUCES: SHIFT (School of Intermedia, Film & Technology)
This program is being pioneered by TeamManila and Quark Henares. TeamManila is the Multi-Disciplinary Graphic Design studio behind the ultra-successful clothing and lifestyle brand, but first and foremost, TeamManila is a graphic design studio that has won acclaim for its design work in print, motion graphics, web development and the digital arts world throughout the years. TeamManila lives to inspire Manila's Visual Culture, which is also the reason they co-founded SHIFT. Quark has directed several movies, one of which is KEKA, that opened the Berlin Asian Hotshots Film Festival in 2008 and was also the film that famed Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino spoke so highly of. Entrepreneur and Stanford University Master of Science and Engineering graduate Lex Ledesma rounds off the SHIFT team by bringing his business acumen into the artistic mix so students learn how to create profitable careers out of their raw talent. Students of SHIFT will learn how to use all digital formats such as Graphic Design, Web Design, Film and others to create powerful still and moving images. This school aspires to push the envelope and create a venue for renegade visual artists and filmmakers to perfect their craft.
