ABOUT
ME!

Ice Elloso was born and raised in Quezon City, Philippines. She speaks Filipino, English and Japanese or a combination of the three. Being a self-proclaimed equipment otaku, she followed her passion and got into filmmaking.

Combining her experiences in various sectors of film and video production, she is a very formidable jack-of-all-trades with a passion for creating high quality videos in the most efficient way.

In the future, her dream is to write and direct a number of cool lesbian action movies (as in awesome women loving women characters in the action movie genre, not porn.)
