These days we’re trying to stock up on links to online lectures aside from books, films and games. So if you need a breather after your second Ivy League online course, director Jerrold Tarog is generous enough to sponsor your next lesson.

Granting his viewers’ wholesome requests, Tarog shared links to several of his films’ pre-production materials on Twitter. These include two pages of the shotlist of the Battle of Tirad Pass scene in “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral,” a full script of his romance full-length “Sana Dati,” and the shooting script of his iconic short “Faculty”—which also serves as the prequest of his coming-of-age full-length “Senior Year.” Hint: “Faculty” is available to watch on Tarog’s Vimeo page. It’s one of his best local shorts.
In case you missed it, he also opened his table for those who want to get a (good) shot at cinema. “And if there’s anything anyone out there wants to ask about making films, just @ or DM me. Will try to answer when I can. Stay safe,” he said. In our conversation last year, he called on both the Filipino audience and storytellers to push for the evolution of Philippine cinema. I think he’s doing more than enough to back it up.
