Albert as a Networker..

Albert as a Filmmaker..

I always thought of the difference between the two and tried to find a common ground, I love making films and enjoy every minute of it, from writing my scripts to the actual shoot to the tedious art of editing, and it is a beautiful process, but what stops or hinder most of us filmmakers is the lack of funds, budgets, finances, most of the time we scrape even our basic means just to finish one film that we hope will catapult us to the big boys. But it goes back to the main problem, BUDGET.

Then I found the solution, hence comes Network Marketing, I’ve never tried networking before and I started to watch lots of youtube materials, read lots of books, researched and met people who do it, Erik Worre one of the Professional Network Marketer showed me wonderful, amazing, interesting concepts and processes that if followed will surely bring result.

I put filmmaking on the side and started to follow AIM Global trainer Sir TJ Villanueva with his interesting, wonderful, and tedious process and amazingly it started to open my mind to another level of network marketing that started to give me the big result.

Now I know that if I continue my networking practices now in just another year I will be able to shoot all my scripts of films and I will not be worried about funding anymore because of the result of my network marketing I will have enough funds to shoot them all and even start producing other filmmakers films.

So what difference do I find between the two? Nothing they actually complement each other, my networking journey is giving me the chance to meet lots of inspiring stories from people from all walks of life, as I share the opportunity it prepares me to have the finances and budgets I need to shoot such inspirational films and show them to the world.

Starting today with proud and honor I say I’m a filmmaker and a network marketer, I make films and make millionaires…

Jackie Fernandez now in one photoshoot.

I consider myself privileged because I’ve worked a lot with Jackie Fernandez at the start of her career, she was one of my early models for the perfume launch then in a number of fashion shows and a number of photo shoot including the one on this page.

She also was crowned the title of “July Rose” which is one of my regular yearly event that ran for 15 years in Bahrain and it was a pleasure working with her.

Her parents Elroy and Kim, brothers, and her sister were definitely some of the joyous family in that little island where we all seem to get along with different nationalities until the civil unrest started in 2009.

By that time Jackie is gone and went to Australia to study and follow her sister so I’m told, the next thing I know was when she represented Sri Lanka in the Miss Universe pageant 2006 and got noticed in the Oscar Awards and worked as a business reporter for Sri Lankan TV.

Jackie Fernandez has really gone a long way from the 14-year-old girl that I knew and I’m really happy for her achievements especially seeing her film posters plastered around the world.

Being a filmmaker and seeing someone you worked with becoming a top actress is definitely humbling, exciting, and amazing to behold, I wish the best for her career and hope that one day our road will meet again and look forward to working with her again sooner than later.

Directing KDJ Music Video aboard Majesty 44 Yacht.

Just finished directing the 2nd music video of KDJ entitled “I Like The Way” on Majesty 44 Yacht from Royal Blue Coast.

I was slightly worried at the start because of the big waves and the strong wind, the first hour was a struggle trying our best to stabilize the camera but because of the wind and waves we were all over the place.

Then after an hour, we manage to have a good footing to set up the camera, but because of the weather and humidity all our cameras were having their moist on all lenses, we then have to wait for more time until the moist cleared up.

By this time our DOP Mj Madrideo has vomited, his assistant Mike also felt dizzy and decided to have a nap and I hold on well and drunk lots of soda, by the time we reached the Palm Jumeirah area the waves went down a bit, Mj and Mike was better and we started rolling.

During all these our cast headed by Mico Angles, JCJKI Dancers, Ariel Diaz Cativo, Arlene Diaz Cativo, Hyd’z Zehcnas, Olugna Beberly Verana Cativo, were having a great time doing their selfie and rehearsing the shoot, we also would like to thank Francesz Elyssah Marie for the sumptuous cake she made.

While these things are happening, our singer KDJ had all the patience waiting, cajoling, anticipating for everyone’s next move and was so happy on the final result.

As the saying goes “If you have patience it always work out at the end” and that is certainly what happened, the last 30 minutes with the beautiful sunset and that magic hour gave us a mesmerizing time and came out with the magical music video.

It is now under post production and will definitely share it to all of you guys later on.
