Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — Because of the unpredictability of the field, the term “creatives” has gained a reputation of being intimidating and exclusive only for a select few. Some would not even touch it with a ten-foot pole in fear of not being “good enough.” But being a creative goes beyond having the latest gadgets and having an endless supply of creative juices.
To excel and thrive as a creative, one must at least have these things down to pat: an incredible eye for detail, an unquenchable thirst for exploration, and a dose of courage that will allow them to break away from the norm and rewrite the rules. All of these are featured and further examined through the eyes of Filipino creatives in “Reframed,” a digital documentary series by Globe Postpaid and Huawei.
“Reframed” features Kim Jones-Rosales, Ryan Villamael, and Mikhail Red — three creatives who have established their names in their respective fields and have rewritten the rules through their works.
Jones-Rosales is a digital creative and fashion influencer who has cultivated a sizeable following these past few years. In 2018, she launched The Fore, a digital platform which aims to “disrupt the retail industry and celebrate limitless creative freedom” through the power of slow collaboration with various artists.
Ryan Villamael is a multi-awarded artist who has made his mark with his masterfully constructed paper structures and installations. He describes his work as an “homage to his city.”
The third creative featured in this series is filmmaker Mikhail Red, son of the legendary filmmaker Raymond Red and director of the recent box office hit “Eerie” and “Birdshot,” the first Filipino film to be released worldwide on Netflix.
“Reframed” shows their unique perspectives on their works and platforms, giving everyone a glimpse into their own creative processes. The series was shot using Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, the latest and “most ambitious” smartphone available in the market today. This just goes to show that complicated equipment and expensive cameras are becoming less of a necessity to create high-quality creative content these days.
“I really love the macro camera, you can take photos of highly detailed [things],” Villamael said during the launch of the P30 series at the Globe Amphitheater in BGC.
Jones-Rosales on the other hand says she loves the flexibility of the phone, especially since it has a lot of options that can help one maximize their creativity.
The creatives’ attention to detail was enhanced through the P30 series’ Leica super camera system which includes a 40MP Super Sensing Camera, an Ultra Wide Angle Lens (16MP for P30 and 20MP for P30 Pro), an 8MP telephoto lens, and an additional Huawei Time-of-Flight (TOF) Camera for the P30 Pro.
The P30 series’ cameras also allow users to zoom in with the 10x Hybrid Zoom, focus on a single item with the Gradient Multi-Level Bokeh, or capture even the tiniest of details with the Multi-View Recording.
Along with these incredible features, the P30 also has a 6.1” display screen size while the P30 Pro has 6.4” display. Both phones also use electromagnetic sound levitation which allows sound vibrations to be projected from the display itself. All of these features are explored and experimented on in “Reframed.”
