GMA Network launched its 2016 Christmas campaign dubbed “Maniwala Sa Magic Ng Pasko,” the first locally-produced 3D animated Christmas campaign earlier tonight, November 7, on 24 Oras.
With its latest offering, the station that is one-in-heart with the Filipino audience brings to life three endearing and magical stories that will inspire viewers to believe in the magic of Christmas.
“During such a busy time of the year, we hope that, by spreading the message of hope, every Kapuso will get to experience the joy and limitless possibilities that come with believing in the magic of the Season,” says GMA Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe Gozon.
The story, Magic Crayons, is the first in this three-part series and highlights the magical feeling of having one’s wish granted for Christmas in the eyes of a child.
The Kapuso Network marks another first as it makes use of 3D graphics in its new Christmas campaign, a first in the local television industry.
“It is felt that the use of animated images best complements the essence of our Holiday message this year – to believe in the magic of Christmas. Through this, it is hoped that even our youngest Kapusos will enjoy our campaign and embrace the meaning of our Christmas message this season,” GMA President and COO Mr. Gilberto Duavit Jr. shares.
The Maniwala Sa Magic Ng Pasko Christmas campaign comes at the heels of GMA’s animated anthology series Alamat’s win of the country’s first “Best of Festival” Award at the US International Film and Video Festival (USIFVF), a recognition given to an outstanding entry among Gold Camera awardees in the USIFVF.
GMA’s Christmas stories are the brainchild of GMA’s Program Support Department headed by Regie Bautista (First Vice President), Dino Garcia (Assistant Vice President), Hasmin Marable (Assistant Vice President), BJ Camaya (Associate Creative Director), Catherine Ko (Project Manager), Nicolle Castillo (Writer), and Juan Javier, Reybert Ramos, Laqy Laqueo (Artists); and brought to life by GMA’s Post Production Department composed of Edward Achacoso (First Vice President), Paul Ticzon (Vice President and Head of Operations), and April Canasa-Angeles (Senior Manager, Video Graphics Section).
The theme song of this year’s Christmas campaign is sung by Julie Anne San Jose with lyrics written by BJ Camaya and Nicolle Castillo and music composed by Len Calvo and Ann Figueroa.
