About the Filmmaker

Alphie Velasco is film student from Asia Pacific Film Institute (Batch 19), born on August 12, 1994 and currently resides at Imus, Cavite Philippines. My fascination with films began when I was working as an auditor in a bpo company. I hated my previous work so I ditch most of my office hours just to watch movies . That’s when I fell in love with the art of cinema.

I really enjoy mystery and cult stories especially character driven films. Some of my favorite films are Nymphomaniac, Mulholland Drive, 8 1/2, Watchmen, Grindhouse, etc. My favorite film directors are Lars Von Trier, Gaspar Noe , Quentin Tarantino, Darren Aronofsky and Roman Polanski. I also love reading manga and watching japanese animations especially the works of Satoshi Kon and Junji Ito. My music taste varies from psychedelic to progressive metal.
