Carlo Ledesma: The Gameplan DNA
Carlo Ledesma is a film director, producer and screenwriter. He won the Cannes Film Festival award for best short film. He got his start in media as a segment producer for GAMEPLAN. In 2001 he auditioned as host and joined Akiko, Rovilson and Tricia. Carlo was the only one then who was both working in front and behind the camera.
From the perspective of both host and producer, he outlines what the show was about. “The GAMEPLAN DNA for me was just about infusing as much adventure, energy, and experience into a 30 minute show.” For Carlo it was also very clear that travelling, going on adventures, and trying out different kinds of sports had a clear purpose. “Trying to make the viewer as immersed and more importantly inspired to get our and try sports themselves.”
Of the new GAMEPLAN, Carlo predicts “What is true and meaningful back then is true and meaningful now in the sense that what you’re going to be watching in today’s version is pretty much going to have the same heart.”- Rappler.com
