Asia’s Titanic in National Geographic Asia

MV Dona Paz model

Remember when an oil tanker named “Vector” and a passenger ship named “MV Dona Paz” collided several years ago? That is what Asia’s Titanic is all about. It was directed by Yam Laranas and this is the first locally-produced documentary for National Geographic.

My Review
The documentary features some footage from the archives, interviews with some of the survivors and the reenactment of what has transpired before and after the collision.

The voice over was done by Jhoonie Gamboa. I think that was a good choice of the team behind Asia’s Titanic.

The effects needed for the explosion could have been better so that it would look more realistic. In addition, the sea did not look real too and could use some improvement.
