Marcial John Paul Chavez, Producer, Director and Cultural Liasion
Marcial Chavez was born in the Albay Province of the Filipinas. He grew up in a large family and Marcial dreamed of the day that he would be able to help his family, his friends and his God.
After graduating from Dasmarinas National High School (Batch 98) he began working in any and every aspect of film, television and music that would further both his faith and his goals. With the talents developed during these years, he was able to come to the United States to both further his education and to further his career.
From 2004-2010, Marcial worked producing Christian music and videos as well as directing “The Passion Play,” being an anchor for Surer Word TV and producing a number of commercial videos.
In 2010, after years of dedication and hard work, Marcial graduated from Maranatha Bible School. Since that time, he has been pursuing his career in film and television as well as teaching and assisting at both his church and several community groups.
Today, as his success continues to grow, Marcial still makes time to return to the Filipinas on an almost quarterly basis in order to mentor and visit with friends and family. It is this spirit and example of “giving back” that makes Marcial a credit to himself, his family and the Filipinas. It is this spirit that we believe will also make him a credit and excellent contributor to Filipino Film Club.
Wm. Alan Pezzuto
Reel Magic Productions’ founder Wm. Alan Pezzuto has been in and around the photography, film and television business for over 40 years.
Reel Magic Productions (RMP) was formed in 2003 in order to provide and promote live entertainment within the gaming industry. As fate would have it, Hurricane Katrina’s destruction of the gulf region of the US, combined with the economic disasters of 2006-2009, caused massive losses to the gaming industry and major changes in their business models. Reel Magic Productions was forced to leave the live entertainment aspect of its business and focus on their film, television and new media divisions.
Since that time, both its founder and RMP have been involved with the production of various projects in Canada, the USA and abroad.
