Dear LUMPIA Lovers,
We say this every year but it will be tough to say goodbye to an absolutely
INCREDIBLE year in 2010, one with extreme highs and lows. Before we
welcome the new year, we
wanted to take this opportunity to share with you
our special 2010
YEAR IN REVIEW...
USC CREDIT UNION ON THE JUMBOTRON!
Though completed in late 2009, 2 versions of our "Testimonial" spots for
USC Credit Union premiered on the Jumbotron of every home game of the
2010 USC Football season. Cinematography by Anthony Chiappetti Kuhnz
and music by Jonathan Wandag .

Shot in August 2009, we finally released this colorful and retro music video for
Bay Area female emcee Hopie Spitshard "Yummy" Music Video on Valentines Day
2010. Visual Crunch made it a Best Indie Music Video Finalist and it was featured in
several film festivals including The HollyShort Film Festival in Hollywood.

We continued to create content for competitions in 2010. Our first submission for
Zooppa USA and Pillsbury ended up winning Third Place. Watch "The Lesson"
starring AVA FONTANILLA & KATHLEEN MARIE BECK with cinematography by
Paciano Triunfo right here: http://www.kidheroes.net/pillsbury/
FORD & THE TRAFFIC GODS
We followed up our grand-prize winning Filmaka DIRECTV project with this short
film for FORD and the The Fiesta Movement starring Vanae Tran & Fran Larkin.
It made its premiere at The SF Metreon Theatre before a screening of IRON MAN 2
and aired on CURRENT TV.

How can you even describe our music video for Carlo J-ricz Ricafort? Odd? Unique?
Twisted? Part of 2 music videos shot together in one weekend on January 2010,
LOVE AFFAIR was finally released this past July. Here's our version of "Cheaters"...

A SEQUEL WORTH WAITING FOR
In July 2010, the follow-up to our award-winning Bambu "Crooks & Rooks" video,
OLD MAN RAPS debuted online to 16,000 hits in its first week. The music video
reunites the same Crooks cast/crew, and is currently our MOST WATCHED video
this year. View OLD MAN RAPS here: http://www.kidheroes.net/bambu/oldmanraps
ZOOPPA CONTEST ENTRIES
After Pillsbury, we submitted several more commercial entries for Zooppa USA.
Though our TMZ entry didn't win, our Johnsonville submission won a Client Award
while our Pepto Bismol spots won Honorable Mention.

A BILLBOARD HIT!
In August 2010, we released this hypnotic dance music video for Giulietta's hit "Vertigo".
The song reached #16 on the Billboard dance charts and we've never seen so many
DJ remixes and versions of any of our videos like this one. It's crazy coooool!
Produced by A.J. Calomay & Krystel Faith.

In September 2010, we finally unleashed our music video for female emcee
Rocky Rivera, our first collaboration with Lawrence John Iriarte's Ohlone College
Crew 152. THE SMOKING SECTION wrote that this video "stands as masterpiece theater
in present-day Hip-Hop’s hallowed video standards" WOW!

A ROMANTIC COMEDY REVEALED
Call it a wedding slideshow. Call it THE DEBUT sequel or a homage to the old Filipino
American pop culture scene. THE JOURNEY was simply my surprise wedding gift that
was completed several hours before it premiered on October 9, 2010. THE DEBUT
Joy Bisco & Dante Basco are reunited in this true life romantic comedy...

COMING JANUARY 4
We shot this the same time as LOVE AFFAIR back in January 2010. After a year of
post-production, we finally premiere this ILLAMENTAL ENTERTAINMENT music video
on Tuesday, January 4 right here: http://www.kidheroes.net/bammtronics
A FINAL 2010 TRIBUTE
It was a busy 2010 but we also experienced huge heartache with the loss of
several members of our Kid Heroes family. The following video is a special one
in memory of CARLOS BAON, SR., JERRICK GUINTO, and JULIUS TORRES.
Thank you for blessing us with your talent and support! WE MISS YOU
