The current attention on Pope Francis is causing a renewed interest in the life of his spiritual father, St. Ignatius of Loyola. A simple internet search on St. Ignatius shows 3,540,000 million entries. However, the same search for a film on his life yields a mere 217,000 entries. Even a search on Amazon reveals only two DVD movies based on his life.
In Jesuit-run schools it is not much different. A survey made by Jesuit Communications Foundation (JesCom), a media organization in the Philippines that produces audiovisual materials for education and evangelization, revealed that in Ateneo de Manila University –the leading Jesuit-run school in the country—the only film about the saint available for students to watch is an old black and white film made in the late 1940s. “El Capitan de Loyola” was produced completely in Spanish with only English subtitles.
With such a great need to retell St. Ignatius’ story to a modern public, JesCom decided to do a full-length feature film project entitled “Ignacio: The First Jesuit.”
A Film with Depth
JesCom will shoot the film in the places associated with St. Ignatius: Montserrat, Manresa, Pamplona and Loyola in Spain. Through meticulous rendering of costumes, materials used and the prevailing culture during the life of St. Ignatius, “Ignacio” will evoke the exciting atmosphere of 16th century Spain and Europe.
The film will capture the zeitgeist of the time, when the continent was full of superpowers fighting over uncharted territories. Spain, which would eventually be the leading superpower at the time, was bringing Catholicism to Mexico and Latin America, eventually reaching the Philippines and Asia.
JesCom brings in years of experience into the making of the film, having produced award-winning documentaries and shows such as “Ang Aming mga Sala,” “Kwento ng mga Peregrino,” “Maging Akin Muli,” and “Kunin Mo, O Diyos.”
JesCom tapped in-house Creative Director Pauline Mangilog-Saltarin and Production Manager Ernestine Tamana as producers of “Ignacio.” Pauline and Ernestine represent the skills and experience of JesCom in more than 50 documentaries and projects and awards that range from the Telly Awards, Japan Prize, International Festival of Audiovisual de Barcelona, XXIX International Catholic Film and Multimedia Festival in Poland and the homegrown Catholic Mass Media Awards. For “Ignacio,” they gathered an award-winning team to effectively capture and portray St. Ignatius’ life.
“We have the passion to bring Ignatius’ story to life and I think the whole team is committed to make this project a huge success,” observes Paolo Dy, “Ignacio’s” Director, in an interview.
This is Paolo’s feature film directorial debut, after a history of winning Anvil Awards almost yearly, the Gold Quill Award of Excellence, Bogen Imaging Short Film Competition in New York and Babelgum Online Film Festival.
He is joined by scriptwriter Ian Victorino who has made powerful scripts on film and television such as “Bayani,” “Sakay,” “Katipunan’” and “Rekorder;” Fritz Silorio, who won the Gawad Tanglaw Awards, Star Awards and Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards for his production designs is Production Designer;”and, Larry Manda, whose latest film project “Norte , The End of History’” showed his mastery and talent to wide critical acclaim, has agreed to be Director of Photography.

Indiegogo: Fund Ignacio: The First Jesuit
“Ignacio” will cost an estimated US$ 675,000 or Php 30,500,000 to produce. JesCom hopes to raise 80 percent—around US$ 560,000 or Php 24,400,000—from donors. The remaining 20 percent will be spent on production costs and the full expense of Post-Production. It will cost roughly US$ 140,000 or Php 6,100,00, and will be sourced through social media or what is known as crowdfunding.
On July 31, 2014, JesCom celebrated the Feast day of St. Ignatius of Loyola by officially launching its worldwide crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo, a popular crowdfunding site for non-profits, startups and individuals.
Crowdfunding is a recent development where people and organizations from any part of the world can make a donation through social media platforms in support of causes or projects. For Ignacio supporters, contributions can be anywhere between US$ 5 to $ 10,000. Each level of donation comes with a reward from the film producers. These include eposters, digital copies of the DVD and original sound track, and special mention in the credits of the movie.

“Ignacio” will premiere in the Philippines in August, 2015.
Upon the invitation of Gov. Manay Cely Wong and the Catanduanes Tourism Office, ChinoyTV took a 60-minute plane ride to feature the different sights and activities there.
Here’s a rundown of where we went and what we did in Catanduanes-
Located in the town of Gigmoto, it is one of the town’s treasures.
Its waters beautifully cascade on three tiers, creating spectacular sprays. The cold water is great for a relaxing dip on a hot day.
2. PAGASA - DOST Weather Radar Station
One of the most advanced radar station in the world, it aims to mitigate the impact of typhoons in our country.
Panoramic views of nature can be viewed from the ground of the radar station.
3. Puraran Beach
From September to October of every year, the Puraran Surf Camp in Puraran, Baras becomes a host to advanced surfers and serious seekers of stoke.
A sumptuous meal of seafood amidst the serenity of the mountain and cove view is perfect.
4. Abaca Paper Production
Catanduanes remains one of the biggest producer of abaca.
We were shown the step-by-step process of making abaca paper and the different products made from it.
6. Abaca Silk with Billy Apanti
From abaca paper to abaca silk.
We met Mr. Billy Apanti, the sole supplier of abaca silk to renowned fashion designer Dita Sandico-Ong.
Now I do not wonder why abaca silk is a bit more expensive. Our trip to the workshop area showed me how intricate it is to produce it!
It takes more than a day and several working hands to weave abaca silk.
7. Pandan Town Fiesta
Pandan is a municipality in the province of Catanduanes. We were lucky to experience a small town fiesta.
There was singing, dancing, eating, and whole lot of positive vibes!
There’s a whole lot more we went to- more food, more sights and more fun! Tune it to ChinoyTV for our two-part Catanduanes special.
Part 1: August 24 Sunday 10am
Part 2: August 31 Sunday 10am
ChinoyTV airs simultaneously on PTV-4 (free TV) and Living Asia Channel (Global/Destiny 88, Sky/Home 99/113).
Special thanks to Gov. Manay Cely Wong, Pandan Mayor Joseph Wong, Jardin Wong, and the Catanduanes Tourism Office

I’m happy to share with you a new organic skin care line that’s 100% natural, 100% holistic and 100% good for your skin-
They have several products that’s worth a try.
Rosewater & Sea Salt Vitamin Toner
Made of pure rosewater petals and green tea extracts, it can be used everyday to tone and balance skin’s PH with its anti-ageing properties and green tea aroma.
I spray it on my face throughout the day when I feel my skin needs a boost. It instantly refreshes and revitalizes my skin. Plus, the scent is so relaxing.
Hair Vitamin Serum
I spread one drop all over my hair and it made my hair look soft and shiny, like it was straight off a shampoo commercial! Be careful though, don’t put too much or your hair might look oily.
This can also be used for thinning hair or even for eyebrows and eyelashes to make them grow. Just use your old clean mascara wand to apply. It has natural oils of grapeseed coconut, aloe, castor and ginger.
Use for any skin problems, even eczema and psoriasis. It has healing properties, with tea tree oil, neem oil, avocado oil and more.
It contains aloe vera and witch hazel that cleans without the chemicals. It doesn’t feel heavy and sticky on the palm. It has a light fresh scent that lingers on the skin.
My favorites so far are Rosewater & Sea Salt Vitamin Toner and the Hair Vitamin Serum. <3
I’m looking forward to more products from them as they are expanding their line and launching an artisan collection soon. Exciting!
