Kuris Reunion with Sir Randy
At last, Kuris Animators finally had a small reunion in the evening of January at Langford’s Place in Paseo de Archangel in Iloilo City. The reunion was inspired by Sir Randy Tolentino who came from South Korea where he is currently finishing his scholarship. He gathered his former students in 2D Animation in 2007 where he used to be one of our dynamic instructors. His energy and optimism for Ilonggo animators was felt by his former students. Kuris Animators who came to the little reunion was headed by Marx, Brynh, Bryan, Jaylord, Elson and its creative director, Ronelo. They were also joined by selected members of Dimbox, a group of animators from the first batch of trainees. They had the best time remembering the past and achievements as Kuris animators including the much-talked-about “The BEQUEST: Origin of Dinagyang” as the first Ilonggo-made 2D-3D mini-film shown at SM Cinema in January 2008. Whatever the future holds for these young and budding artists/animators, they still treasure the best times they have shared. Being part of something big and promising bunch of talents make them the bearer of Ilonggo legacy. Sir Randy might be coming back in Iloilo in the middle of 2011 and hopefully will start anew helping out Ilonggo animators who are all talented and promising in their own way.
