History Channel Project

Last month, I received an interesting email from History Channel Asia‘s producer, Andy Tan regarding a 45-second special segment to be produced for TV in the Asia Pacific region for A&E Television Networks. And they wanted to shoot in:

I also got in touch with some talents (read: friends’ kids) —

Big thanks to the parents, Alex & Michelle Legados and Bong & Mariz Noceto for making all things possible from the wardrobe to waking up the kids ready for the 5 am call time.

I’ve climbed the White Sand Dunes once before and I’m telling you it’s not easy. Imagine these kids sliding and climbing back up numerous times under the hot sun — well, it’s no easy task.

Thanks Andy! The kids are still raving about the shoot and we can’t wait for the final video!
