“AMGO” is one of the entries of 48-HR Shootout. A challenge initiated by the Motion Picture Society of Cebu to encourage experience-based learning in storytelling. This program will gather Cebu-based filmmakers to celebrate the art and craft, as well as the joys and pains, of making movies. 48-hr shootout limitations are set to push the creativity of the participating teams in the hopes of cultivating a culture of pragmatic film-making and collaborative storytelling.
