A new show, described as an “online musical” about pandemic emotions and dedicated to all pandemic frontliners is set to stream.
Made up of original songs by Filipino artists, the show ‘M-FLIX: Da Pinoy Pandemic Palabas’ will reimagine the online musical format and feature performances as well as short verse and animation.
Consisting of 12 original songs, each are hooked on emotional ‘pillars’ of gulat, takot, pagka-gipit, malikhaing pagtugon, pangamba, pagtuklas, malasakit, pananagutan, pag-alala, pasasalamat, pagbangon, and pagmumuni that we’ve all felt during the pandemic.
Video editing and direction by Stephen Viñas with over-all story and script in animation by Maria Isabel Garcia, with animations by Aidon Panlaqui. This project is a collaboration by the Bonifacio Art Foundation Inc and the Pinoy Playlist Music Festival curated by National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab, Moy Ortiz, and Noel Ferrer, and co-presented by the Sun Life Foundation.
