CFA to produce a Reality TV Series on the Election

Feb 20th 2007

Communication Foundation for Asia (CFA) is producing a TV Series composed of three episodes about the coming election. Taking the format of a reality game show, it aims to emphasize the value of every citizen’s vote. Veteran filmmaker Clodualdo Del Mundo, Jr will direct the program.

Game participants would be challenged to do deep and serious research on candidates — focusing on platforms instead of superficials. They would be asked to analyze media coverage of the campaign and election. Surveys and campaign ads would be critiqued. The idea is to make the players (and the audience) aware of how media could manipulate voters through incomplete, inaccurate, irresponsible or unfair portrayal of the campaign and election process. At the conclusion of the program, the players would be asked to devise ways to ensure the protection of ballots.

The program is part of our media support for the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV). The said TV Series will be shown on Dream Satellite TV and Destiny Cable.
