Before 2016 ends, the resident and home grown studio of Film maker Dante Nico Garcia that is based in Puerto Princesa City this past years, introduce his latest creations via a multi media film series called “Kapitan Kalikasan” under the direction of his protégée Rocky Austria-Pagliawan.

The premiere held at Robinson Mall Palawan last Dec 24, wherein the almost 17minute film give a glimpse of what to expect  on this new age super hero that is task in saving the environment, making things clean and creating a better place for everyone.

It open with a 3minute animation featuring a kid opposing a soon to be enemy, and the introduction of his power courtesy of a mystical and talking grasshopper. Kapitan Kalikasan top billed Quatro Tagapulot and a lot more of young Palawan’s upcoming talents, all products of Garcia’s workshop under Life College.

The opening teaser features scenic and ideal products of Puerto Princesa, a group of teenage guys discussing the benefits of home grown honey while dealing with hugot lines from the film Ploning, and two kids who deeply talk about love and trying to understand its circumstances.

The teaser however didn’t provide much clue on the main story, the establishing of its main characters are not all clear, and how they will connect to each other. One confusing plot is the mala-fairy love angle that was supposed to be told by one of those guys hanging out in a bar. The closing part is much more interesting since the all new animated Kapitan Kalikasan goes out of the Underground River, while two more clue from a blacksmith and lady kid is shown before the end credits start.
