GIOVANNI FIEL NAKPIL

Hold your breath, this is a very interesting discovery! This will really make us all proud!

I chanced to browse website firstacademy.net, and this site has good news for us all Fiel clan! It cited several Filipinos who made waves in their contribution to making high-quality movies for global distribution.

AND ONE OF THEM HAPENS TO BE...

"Giovanni Fiel Nakpil, worked for George Lucas' "Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones" and built and animated some characters for "Van Helsing". He also worked on "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl."

Source: http://www.firstacademy.net/art-abs.html

The website www.senecac.on.ca/ called him "Master of Movie Mayhem."



Giovanni Fiel Nakpil is working as a 3D Modeler for Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) — the award-winning visual effects company owned by Star Wars creator George Lucas. Gio continues to add blockbusters to his already impressive resumé. They include the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, the final chapter of the Star Wars saga and War of the Worlds.

Giovanni’s love of drawing and Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) led him to Seneca’s Digital Media Technical Production program, which prepares students for careers in the computer graphics and digital media industries.

The first ILM project he worked on as a 3D Modeler was Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.Today, his film credits include Van Helsing, Dreamcatcher, Matrix Revolutions and both Pirates of The Caribbean films.

“I never would have dreamed that I would be working for ILM,” says the 30-year-old Star Wars fan. He was recruited to ILM after working for animation companies in Toronto and Texas.

His Seneca training has allowed him to take on greater challenges with each film, culminating with a chance to work on a Steven Spielberg production.

“Being able to work on War of the Worlds was like winning the lottery.”

Giovanni created the giant laserblasting alien machines in War of the Worlds — considered to be a major character in the film — and the alien probe that threatens Tom Cruise.

Yon palang kinatatakitan nating mga animations, gawa ng isang kapamilya natin.

Anong say nyo?

His aunt, Corito Fiel of Philippine Daily Inquirer, wrote:

"CAUGHT my nephew in Van Helsing and though Giovanni Fiel Nakpil was somewhere lost in the fast-moving after-film credits.Felt his unseen yet strong, sure hand in all its fire-breathing glory as Dracula in his climactic battle with Hugh Jackman as the Demon Slayer, grandly morphs into the frighteningly hideous HellBeast."

Hi Fr Felmar. I am Marc Nepomuceno, an XVD from Angeles City. I will date myself by telling you that Fr Jerry Orbos was my high school classmate.

Anyway, please give my regards to your relative, Corito Fiel, who was at St. Scho Manila when I was at La Salle Taft in the 1970s.

Hi, I am Rose Fiel Nakpil, Giovanni's mother. My father is Charlie Fiel (deceased) from Ormoc, brother of Sr. Milagros Fiel, Sr. Lina Fiel, and Sr. Anne Fiel (yup... 3 nun sisters!). Watch out for my son Giovanni's upcoming movies: J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" and "Terminator 4". He's still based in San Francisco working for George Lucas's company, Industrial Light & Magic. I'm based in Toronto, Canada, w/ my husband Paquito. I have a newly-married daughter, Karla, who lives in New Jersey w/ her husband. Best regards to all the FIELS!!

Hi, my name is Tet Fiel Pelegrin Feliciano and I am Rose Fiel Nakpil's cousin. As she mentioned above, the offsprings of Agaton Fiel, who was married to Emiliana Tan of Ormoc too, are Sr. Ann Fiel, NATIVIDAD FIEL PELEGRIN (my mother who is now deceased), Sr. Milagros Fiel, Charlie Fiel (her dad - deceased) and the last Sr. Teresita Fiel. (Inadvertently, she missed adding my mom to this lineage.) So, out of five offsprings, only two got married and the rest entered the nunnery - as we say - to pray for all of us!! My mom, Naty Fiel Pelegrin (who was married to Gil R. Pelegrin - deceased too)had 10 of us - 9 still living and we are all either in the States and Canada.

I am so glad that you started this blog... couldn't imagine that the Fiel clan is HUGE!!! More power to you and keep up the good work.
