The fulfillment for me as a filmmaker ever since I started dreaming of becoming one is to imagine, as complicated as I can, what scenes could make use of all the elements of film, to challenge myself to pull it off even against all odds and actually executing it as I imagined it. I get the ultimate high when everyone on set confronts the challenge head on and works so damn hard to capture it on screen. Bloodied wounded and chased by the mob thru alleys and roofs, @annecurtissmith nails this complicated scene in 1 shot, 2 days, 4 ronin operators, over 60 crowd and stunt guys and 37 long takes, with wet and slippery rain to top it! It had to be put on record that we got it. Without everyone's stamina and Anne's marathon experience, this would have failed big time! To everyone who worked so hard to put this all together, thank you for believing it can be done. #BuyBust
I've joined and left film organizations in the past. I've also seen how, in a short period of time, advertising became a different animal. I was also part of advertising for a big part of my career. I bailed out at a time when I saw that creatives no longer have the power and that clients have become king and most especially, economics are dropping because "online lang" e. I dont want this to happen to the movies. Last saturday, we gathered a few filmmakers to discuss concerns in our movie industry and if we can do something about it. I never felt that energy from the film industry in such a long time. It was a test invite to see if people would go out of their way, on traffic and rainy day to attend this effort. And they came. From maybe 55 invites, 46 came. Big number! Something was started. Soon, we will be inviting every filmmaker to be part of this movement to really look into the common general concerns of the majority working in the film industry. We want a group that will look into the collective concerns of the filmmakers setting aside personal interests, individual loyalties and career survival. To all filmmakers, director, cameraman, designer, producer, actors, staff and crew, please join us. Together, we hope we can unify the industry and protect what we all love. See you all soon! #bawalnegaperobawaldinwalangbayag
A labor of love. Everything's coming together. Slowly but even slowly. I am happy to be given a chance to do this film. This is definitely one film off my bucket list.
