DID YOU KNOW? Aby Marano is into filmmaking and editing

Aby Marano is known for being competitive, aggressive and fierce inside the volleyball court. From her playing days in De La Salle University in the UAAP, to her career in the commercial league and with the national team, Marano brings her signature beast mode attitude. A fact that most local volleyball fans know.     But did you know that Tyang Aby is also into filmmaking and editing?  “Actually, since college mahilig na ako mag-film,” said Marano, a Philippine Studies graduate of DLSU.  “Into filming and editing talaga ang interest ko.” The three-time UAAP champion and two-time Most Valuable Player shared that she started by taking videos of the Lady Spikers while still in college.     “Tapos nu’ng college mayroon kaming tinatawag na Lady Spikers TV pinauso ko ‘yun para lang sa team namin,” she said. “Katuwaan lang. Di pa uso vlogs nun, hahaha! “Lagi ako nagho-host ng Lady Spikers TV at guests ko ay s’yempre teammates ko nu’ng college.” “Kahit saan kami mapunta mapa-Baguio, Hong Kong, Singapore etc. nagpi-film kami sa mga digicam namin,” she continued. After her UAAP stint, Marano admitted that she had to put her hobby aside to focus on her club commitments. “Then nu’ng magpunta kami ng National Team sa Japan saka ko naisip mag-film ulit, again hobby ko lang ‘yun,” she said. “Gusto ko lang i-shoot yung mga ganap namin kapag free kami and wala sa training kasi sabi ko sa sarili ko someday mamimiss ko to, kapag di na ako naglalaro.” Her video collection piled up over time. Fearing that she might lose some of the precious memories she captured on video, Marano decided to store her videos online.   “Kaso problem ko baka mawala ‘yung copy sa gadgets ko over time. Kailangan makaisip ako ng paglalagyan and nakita ko YouTube, na pwedeng dun ko i-save lahat para kahit retired na ako sa volleyball mapapanood ko pa rin videos ng kalokohan naming,” said Marano. Her YouTube channel ‘Vlog-galag’ turned out to be a hit. “Nagulat na lang ako at biglang dumami ang views,” she said. “Kung dati, kaming teammates lang tumatawa about sa videos, ngayon libu-libo ng mamamayan ang nakikitawa sa amin. Ang saya!” Little did she know that what started to be a just a place to store her videos almost three years ago would later blow up and even hit a milestone of reaching 100,000 subscribers.   Through her vlog, fans get to know more about their volleyball idols. “Na-realize ko maganda rin pala ito kasi may fans na nag-thank you sa akin sabi nila na mas nakilala nila kami outside volleyball court,” said Marano. “Akala nila puro kami swag, yabang, beastmode, yun pala nakakatawa kami at masaya kasama sa labas,” she added. “So ayun kaya mas naging makabuluhan ang Vlog-galag.”.....»»
