Miguel Luis Calayan is a Manila born and California made filmmaker-photographer-writer who lives life on a per-project basis. Over the last decade, he has shot commercials to make a living and documentaries to make life worth living. A recurring theme throughout his work is in authenticity and humanity, most recently culminating in his latest project: So Cards. On the surface, it’s a deck of cards that contains a collection of questions for deeper discussions. Through this, he has created a growing Instagram account in which people share their answers and (often vulnerable) stories. He also created Skip The Small Talk, a monthly gathering in which everyone is told to forego all talks of work, the news, and the weather, and instead dive right into what makes us who we are.
