Gerardo de Leon’s “Kulay Dugo ang Gabi”

September 6, 2014

Bragged as “The FIRST COLOR HORROR PICTURE” produced in the Philippines, People’s Pictures’ “Kulay Dugo ang Gabi” starred Amalia Fuentes, Eddie Fernandez, Eva Montes and Ronald Remy.  Credit listed Tony Gosalvez as sound effects man. I remember meeting him while we were doing “Bagong Bayani OCW” at a post-production studio then located in Makati. He had so many stories to tell about sound effects production. And we were captured listeners. He had a box with the stuff he was using at the time to create the effects. I THINK he also worked on the sound for Tikoy’s docu-drama [honestly, I had to check on this — whether it was Mr. Tony or someone else. There were lots of post-prod people hanging out in the place. But surely, I remember BB’s effects man sort of complaining re my edit somewhere in the beginning of the film [point where Flor Contemplacion was hanged]. It seemed he found the cut too fast he had difficulty laying effects on that particular cut. But I did not change the cut….
