Noah Del Rosario was born to a family of artists. He grew up being fascinated with the visual arts. As a kid, he drew comic books with his brother, and then, this led him to shooting his own short films. Noah is especially passionate for film, however, believing it is a great “medium of storytelling”.
He graduated magna cum laude in 2016, and now works freelance in advertising. During his stay at MINT, he garnered awards for his short films. In January 2015, he won “Best Cinematography”, “Best Editing”, “Best Performance”, and “Best Music” at the Piling Obrang Vidyo competition at UP Diliman for “Cold Sand.”
In April 2015, he garnered “Short Film of the Year” at the UPelikula 2015 film festival for “Dog Days”. In the same event, he also got the “Achievement for Creativity” award for his experimental film, “Refuse”.
In January 2016, he won “Best Cinematography” and “Best Music” awards at the 12th Piling Obrang Vidyo film competition for the film “Mukha,” which he made in collaboration with MINT Music Business Management students. Screenings of Mukha featured live scoring by MINT students.
He was also a finalist for the Short Film Category at the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival in August 2016 for his thesis film, “Bugtaw”.
