A day in the region of Pagudpud. Ilocos Norte, Philippines. This place usually has awesome weather but we happen to just catch a storm. Oh well, it wasn’t too bad heading out and doing some hikes and exploration by flip-flop. We went to only visit the North-side as we needed to get back down to Laoag later on that day. (Feb 2013)
All shot on the GoPro HERO2HD. Edited on FCP X. My first time using it; sucks that you can’t trim the rejected partial-clips like in iMovie ’11. I might have to do the trimming beforehand, as unwanted file-space is adding up.
I’ve been doing some experimentation with Adobe Edge this past week since it’s preview release on Monday. I figure to have a break, and do some exercises with Adobe Illustrator. Hence, the above: “ill-ocano”.
The Ilocano or Ilokano people are the third largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilocanos, from “i”-from, and “looc”-bay, they also refer to themselves as Samtoy, from the Ilocano phrase “sao mi ditoy”, meaning ‘our language here.’ The word “Ilocano” came from the word “Iloco” or “Yloco.“1
Yes, it looks like the spelling is off, but the explanation of why it is so and the exercise is right after the jump.
