  • The program featured beautiful short films captured using the ‘Movie Master’ CAMON 18 smartphone. 
  • Now everyone can have a happier holiday season with even more offers on the CAMON 18 Series, plus upcoming TECNO models, POVA Neo and Spark 8P.

TECNO Mobile recently concluded its first Movie Masters Program with an awarding ceremony held on December 11, 2021. The Movie Masters Program, which marks the beginning of TECNO Mobile’s commitment to supporting the local filmmaking scene, is a short film competition whose goal is to highlight moving moments from everyday life through dynamic, touching, and beautifully-made original videos shot by aspiring local filmmakers using the CAMON 18 Premier smartphone. 

At the awarding event, filmmaker Johanna Serrano was named the Grand Winner of the Movie Masters Program for her film, Bukidnon An Eco Adventure, besting two other finalists, Dylan Talon and Angelo Crisostomo. In the short film, Johanna takes viewers along as she explores the beautiful province of Bukidnon, sharing raw and authentic moments that she experiences during the trip.

As the Grand Winner, Johanna received a Php 300,000 film grant, along with the chance to create a short film together with top local director, Paul Soriano and the TEN17P team. The film, which will be released globally this December, will take a look back at the past year, and show how Filipinos are capable of overcoming challenges that may shake them, in order to live a steady life with the promise of a stable and beautiful future. 

Apart from emerging as the Grand Winner of the short film competition, Johanna was also named as one of two TECNO Mobile 2022 Tourism Ambassadors. The second Tourism Ambassador awarded at the event was Felix Ablao Jr., who submitted the best steadiest video entry for the Shaky Video Championship on Facebook. Both TECNO Mobile 2022 Tourism Ambassadors received Holiday Travel Funds amounting to Php 40,000 as their prize.

In a message to the finalists, and those watching the awarding ceremony, Direk Paul Soriano shared that the technology found in the CAMON 18 Premier makes it a great tool for capturing and telling stories. He also invited more filmmakers and creators to take advantage of opportunities like the Movie Masters Program. He said, “We have the freedom that we all want when we tell our stories. The creative freedom. It’s really just you, and the CAMON 18 Premier, and your stories. What else do you need?”

How tough is the Asus TUF H3 Gaming Headset?

Choosing a bang for your buck gaming headset is essential for your streaming, movie marathon, music solitude, and especially for your hardcore gaming sessions. In this article, I will provide my honest feedback about the “Asus TUF H3 Gaming Headset” after using it for a year.

In the cheap gaming headset market, you generally have to compromise at least one thing, whether it’s the mic quality, sound, comfort, or durability of the product. However, the TUF H3 is an exception since it delivers all the value of a quality gaming headset for an affordable price.

The audio and mic quality of the headset is top-notch for its price and it offers incredible bass and clear sound details to immerse you in a natural-sounding gaming experience. Having this audio quality for a cheap headset is a big factor especially if you’re an avid FPS gamer. Hearing footsteps, team calls, and environment interactions will boost your overall performance in every match. Also, it is rather comfortable and you really don’t have any issues with long gaming sessions compared to other headsets that fatigue your ears after using it for extended periods of time.

For the build quality of the product, I would say it is relatively secure once you put it and has a lightweight feeling. The cool thing about this headset is that you can use it on your consoles, it has a 3.5 millimeter 4-pole jack on the headset itself and a braided 4-pole two-separated microphone and headphone jack included so it should really work with anything you want to plug it into.

With all that being said, if you’re an aspiring streamer, music lover, or competitive gamer. I highly advise not letting this gaming headset pass since you can not go wrong with its quality and price.
