    Loc&Stor 24/7 has released two compelling branded short films directed by award-winning director Chris Cahilig, featuring stories of family love, loss, heartache, and new beginnings.

    Moving on from the passing of someone we love is never easy—not when there is so much to miss and look back to. But “The Secret” shows a way to help ease the heartache . . . through the memories our loved ones left behind.

    In this moving short film, Loc&Stor 24/7 shares the story of a family still aching from the loss of the father and head of the household. The teenage children, mystified about their mother’s late hours coming home, start worrying about her whereabouts. Suspecting the worst, they fear that she has ‘moved on’ so soon after their father’s death.

    As they conspire to follow her one night, they discover their mother’s ‘secret’—her nightly ‘dates’ with their father at a Loc&Stor 24/7 storage unit that contains the family’s treasured possessions. Scenes from the past move them to tears, but this time, both mom and kids agree that they can always go somewhere to keep their love for their father alive.

    “The Secret” teaches us that while we need to move on from personal loss, there will always be our cherished memories to comfort us—and Loc&Stor 24/7 to keep those memories safe.

    Starring in the film is Fe Sagulimba as the mother, Sean See as the son and Thalia Padilla as the daughter.

    On the other hand, “One Night Only” is a light and quirky story of millennial love that gets nearly nipped in the bud. A girl and boy have fun on a blind date, a potential coupling sparked by the strong attraction between them. However, the girl’s messy home turns off the young man, leaving the girl to wonder what she could have done wrong. Her best friend gently admonishes her about decluttering her place and helps bring her stuff to a Loc&Stor 24/7 storage unit. In the end, the girl “frees up” her home for “The One”.

    Crafted to appeal to the young generation, “One Night Only” suggests that while first impressions make or break a relationship, two people can find new beginnings when given a chance.

    The film, which went viral and received positive feedback in social media, stars Jourdanne Castillo, Wayne Avellano, and Hannah Lee.

    Written by Yuji Gonzales, the short films feature Jay Castillo as the assistant director; Patrick Ferrer as the director of photography; Lorraine Intes as the production manager; and Jed Medrano as line producer.

    The crew also features Henry Ramirez as offline editor and Kenneth Amparo as online editor. Credits likewise go to Richard Gonzales for scoring; Kat Salinas for sound design; and Kenneth Amparo for colorgrading.
