High School for the Arts).  He was Creative Director at the Cultural Center of the Philippine for five years before moving to Leo Burnett as Art Director.  Later, while serving this advertising agency as Creative Services Director, Henry filmed some TV commercials for a global consumer brand, pioneering an effective departure in treatment, that the brand soon adopted as norm for its subsequent TV commercials.  Aside from their excellent production value, these materials have earned unparalleled ratings in the brand’s consumer tests.  Henry has since directed numerous high-recall TV commercials for brand leaders.  He has shown excellent skill in eliciting fine nuances in human passion: from subtle humor to tender emotions.  In all his works, Henry is able to weave visual design and camera treatment with strong and clear narratives.
