Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski is a champion equestrienne, television host and actress from the Philippines. She was a gold medalist in the 2002 Asian Games in Busan, South Korea. She is the niece of former Philippine President Corazon Cojuangco-Aquino, first cousin of fellow actress Kris Aquino and current Philippine President Noynoy Aquino.
I’ve known Mikee since 1997 when I created her official website which I continue to maintain to this day. I created some CGI visual effects for her TV show "Mikee" in 1997 and also provided some computer tech support for her through the years.
Having seen several multiplicity gigapixel action images, I wanted to create something similar. Mikee was very excited about the idea when I proposed it to her in 2011. We finally had the chance to execute this project during my brief visit to the Philippines in early 2012. Special thanks to Alice Dixson, Michelle Barrera (Mikee’s niece and fellow equestrienne) and Renacelle Cruz-Punzalan for their assistance during the shoot at Manila Polo Club.
