Kingpin Asiong_Last Three Shooting DaysSeptember 8, 2011
Yesterday, I got the footage of the six sequences shot in Muntinlupa Bilibid Jail. I reached Scenema Concept at 4 p.m. but I managed to start only at 8 p.m. Yuka had the hard drive so I had to wait. The footage had to be transferred too for security reasons — we needed a backup copy of said footage. I finished editing them before 4 a.m. Waited for the sun to rise to catch LRT 2. Today, they are scheduled to shoot more scenes in Bagac, Bataan. I haven’t slept properly up to this minute [9.13 a.m.] because of coordination work re meet with Deaf consultants and production staff of Project Rizal for [this time mine] re the last two shooting days of the Project. Writer Apolonio “Dok” Chua of the UP KAL – Filipino Dept. has agreed to read Sa Filipinas on September 30. I am still looking for two more readers of Rizal’s poems in Spanish. As I aim with CSB-SDEAS to launch the film in November… I am aiming at finishing Kingpin Asiong next week before I leave for the Visayas for the scheduled showings of my docu on autism in Tacloban City and Ormoc City. ASP informed me of Laguna’s interest to show it there in October as well.
