I am Ice Elloso and I’m a Filipino Filmmaker based in Tokyo. I am bilingual in Filipino and English and I am also fluent in Japanese with a JLPT N2 certification.
My background in filmmaking includes a BA and an MA in film production from top universities in the Philippines and Japan which involved participating in numerous film productions, and taking in varying roles from scriptwriting, directing, camera work and lighting to making gallons of fake blood.
After graduating, I joined an online language tutorial company, and after, an advertising agency. On top of applying my production experience for company shoots, I have also picked up and honed my skills in post-production.
Combining my experiences in all sectors of video production, I am a very formidable “jack-of-all-video-trades”with a passion for creating high quality videos in the most efficient way.
