vivo, one of the leading smartphone brands in the Philippines, has announced the winners of its 60-second Masterpiece Short Film Contest, vivo’s first-ever film contest, which encouraged aspiring Filipino filmmakers and enthusiasts to creatively capture life’s masterpieces around them by just using a smartphone.
With the theme, “Own your Masterpiece,” the participants were tasked to find the masterpieces in the ordinary and use the power of storytelling through films to encapsulate the messaging.
vivo 60-second Masterpiece Short Film Awards:
The Best Film was awarded to Paul Caisip for “The Social Experiment” – a 60-second film about how one should always practice honesty and integrity even if no one’s looking.
The Best vivo Product Placement was presented to Michael Golez for “Untitled” – a film that redefined the meaning of masterpiece. More than his artworks on a canvas, Golez highlighted that his very own masterpiece is his life and the memories he makes with his loved ones.
