Philbert Ortiz Dy

Phil Dy has leveraged the unique skills he acquired as an MIS graduate into careers that do not involve MIS. He did not use any of his programming skills while writing and producing short films, or working on the set of music videos for Kitchie Nadal and Up Dharma Down. He did not use project management when he contributed articles and photos to Pulp, Youngstar, Meg and 2bu. He failed to apply calculus to writing, editing and taking pictures for a local travel guide. Despite his misguided training, however, Phil won second place in the 1st Philippine Graphic/Fiction Awards, and was a finalist in the Cinemanila 2007 Scriptwriting contest. He is a movie buff, and now spends most of his time watching horrible movies so other people don't have to.

'The Giver' Ignores the Lessons of its Source Material

The film seems intent on removing all the things that made this story so special to generations of young readers. It strives to make the story as cut-and-dried as every other Young Adult story, robbing this narrative of all distinction.
