Chino Neri

Co Founder, Head of Production & Creatives

Chino has been immersed in various disciplines in the media and video production while co-founding Prodigy Ace Multimedia Inc. in 2012, where he was Post Production Head and Managing Director. His expertise in the video production industry comes from having worked in all phases of production, having worn the hats of Executive Producer, Director, Cinematographer, Post-Production Artist, Editor and co-Editor for documentaries like On the Brink: Unchartered Waters, which won the Conservation Award at the Ocean’s Film Festival in San Francisco and was screened at The 9th International Eco Film Festival in Kuala Lumpur in 2017. It premiered in the National Geographic Channel that same year.

Troy Bernardo

Co Founder, Managing Partner

Writer, Business Manager, Director, and Creative Consultant, Troy has been conceptualizing, writing and shooting stories for companies, television and film the last 6 years. His body of work includes: Sabungero: Tibay at Dangal for film, which won the Aloha Accolade Award for Excellence at the Honolulu International Film Festival, the Golden Palm Award at the Mexico International Film Festival, and Official Selection status at the New York Filipino Film Festival, all in 2010. His documentary, Fields of Hope, won Best International Documentary at the Manhattan Film Festival in April 2016. Together with The Extra Mile Productions, his work on Know Your North, won 12 trophies at the Adobo Awards 2018.

 

Ronald De Asis

Head of Sound Production

Kurrent has no other Sound Engineer than award-winning Ronald de Asis, whose work includes RPG Metanoia: Best Sound Recording, Metro Manila Film Festival, Sa Ilalim ng Tulay: Best Music Cinema One Originals, Concerto: Best Digital Movie Sound Engineer of the Year, Star Awards. Ronald is also the Sound Producer for Extra Mile Production's Know Your North, which won 12 trophies at the Adobo Awards 2018.

A Creative Think Tank

Imagine owning your own creative think tank that could create advertising materials, blogs, blog posts, campaigns, how-to’s, ideas, infographics, initiatives, instructional blogs, imagery, guerilla projects, marketing directions, podcasts, posts, press releases, social media updates, videos and webinars across all mediums, and websites for all your businesses -- all relevant, shareable.

 

It’s like having your own in-house agency with its own creatives, working primarily for your businesses, the creative requirements these businesses need for expansion, and the causes and initiatives supported by these businesses.

 

Creative initiatives are developed with the key people who run your businesses, so branding for these businesses are tailor-fit, in sync with your overall vision. And, because the only approval process is you, communication and submission is faster.

 

In-House Agencies on the Rise

With clients getting 100% dedication of subject matter experts, who charge no overtime or rush charges, in-house agencies, which are actually cheaper and faster than hiring an agency, are on the rise. Companies like Apple, Google, Globe and Jollibee have attracted talent from agencies for their own in-house agencies.

 

In-house agencies for companies like Integer and Chipotle have actually begun winning awards for their work, and are now hired by companies like Starbucks. The BBC has BBC Creative; Best Buy has Yellow Tag Productions; and, Coca-Cola has the Content Factory.

 

Even Fidelity Investments has Fidelity Communications & Advertising, while Sprint Communications has Yellow Fan Studios.
