In just 40 seconds, 21-year old digital artist Vince Serrano aims to provide encouragement to emotionally-burdened people through the help of his animated digital video “Companion”, a story of a lonely boy who almost succumbed to the lure of death but received a second chance at life from a beacon of hope.
The young animator‘s short video bested 20 other entries in the “Hope in 40 Seconds” video competition launched in June by the Natasha Goulbourn Foundation (NGF), a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing depression to light. The awarding ceremonies were held on October 6 in observance of the National Mental Health Awareness Month.
“Although I heard a lot of suicide cases when I was still in college, I didn’t put much thought on them until I decided to take on the challenge of doing an animation for NGF. I had to research about mental health and that was when I realized that it is actually a hidden epidemic, a real issue which needs our attention. This further inspired me to do my best so that in my own little way, I would be able to help other people,” Serrano said.

Iloilo Business Park once again proves that it is the hippest and happiest place for Ilonggos of all ages, as it hosts the biggest Scrabble competition for kids in Western Visayas over the weekend. More than 70 students from various schools in the province competed for the chance to put their vocabulary, wit and social skills to a test.
“Scrabble is not just a form of mental exercise, but it is also a social practice. It lets participants discuss language and teamwork while competing.
