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….
