Sun Life Shares Heartwarming Stories through Sun Shorts 2

There’s nothing more touching than sharing significant human experience. These are stories about one’s triumphs, the journey to success, stories about love, family and friends as well as life’s lessons. We always get inspiration and be able to learn a thing or two in every story that we relate, hear or share. Sun Life recognizes this and they’re recently able to come up with Sun Shorts.

Sun Shorts are Sun Life’s collection of short films that depicts love, hope and commitment inspired by stories of Sun Life’s very own clients. The campaign was launched back in as early as 2012 and it created astounding positive feedback among consumers as it sends touching messages which had inspired everyone who’s seen them. Sun Life Inc. decided to come up with another series this year. 

Media and bloggers were given a special preview of the three short films during its launch alongside Sun Life’s celebration of its Financial Independence Month this June. Sun Life’s brand ambassadors Ms. Charo Santos-Concio, Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo, Piolo Pascual and Matteo Guidicelli also graced the said affair to formally introduce Sun Shorts 2.

The three Sun Short Films are once again made to tug the hearts of many Filipinos as it envisions that every Filipino must be prepared for their future. There were situations shown where things are far beyond our control but they were presented in the films in such a way that viewers will be able to cope up when given those real life situations.

The first of Sun Shorts 2 trilogy can now be watched online. “Waves” is a story directed by Zig Marasigan. It gives a glimpse on the lives and hearts of millennials. Highlighting the story of a carefree surf instructor Marco and Amanda the city girl who captured his heart which transcended into an enduring long-distance relationship. Watch how the waves played a significant role in their lives.

I do not want to give you a spoiler here, but in the said story, Marco’s financial shrewdness made their dreams into reality.  After seeing this film, we were made aware that you can now become a beneficiary of your partner, provided that both parties can provide a proof of Certificate of No Marriage (CENOMAR). 

Sun Life once again educates Filipino audience (in an innovative & creative way) about financial preparedness by creating these relatable short films. In keeping with their vision and advocacy, Sun Life has two other films set to be released a week apart each. You may catch these episodes at
