El Brujo Poster?

June 12, 2012

I got this El Brujo poster(?) while surfing the net…. this is the film that I am currently editing.

I unfortunately wasn’t able to continue with my edit today. It’s holiday they say. But I do not mind working even on holidays – except during the Holy Week or Christmas… so I went to Post Manila only to find out that we couldn’t work. I received the info when I was already there. The advice came in late. It was my target to splice all edited scenes together. Bukas na lang ano pa nga ba?

A mi Patria Screens JUNE 19!

June 12, 2012

My film A MI PATRIA — which I cannot categorize —whether a docu or not will premiere next week on June 19, 2012. Anyway, it is simply Rizal’s poetry in moving pictures…it is history, literature and creative imagination working… i let go of my spirit. And I loved being free.

Talking about being free — it is Independence Day. And today, I should be free from offline editing of El Brujo tonight. I am sked to “stitch” individual edited scenes into one — for me to know exactly what are missing or probably to delete scenes sked to shoot which we can get rid of. There are about 25 more scenes to shoot I was told… I can also gauge the length.

New Film Editing Assignment

June 5, 2012

Today, I started editing an indie film directed by Tikoy entitled EL BRUJO in a post-production house called Post Manila. The mythical film stars Gerald Anderson and Jake Cuenca. I couldn’t help but be nostalgic walking along Pasong Tamo St., where Don Bosco Technical Institute in Makati is located, and in Pasay Rd. now called Arnaiz Avenue where the office is located.  I used to teach Art Education at DBTI. Most unexpected was meeting Donna, one of Manay Minnie’s angels who is handling our film’s account I think. I should visit Don Bosco one of these days…to meet friends who might still be teaching there, or maybe put up an A mi Patria poster in the Multiple Intelligence Library???

By the way, editing suites at Post Manila are named after Manila Streets. I happen to land up in “Dimasalang.” Isn’t that Rizal’s pseudonym? And isn’t that a coincidence since my mind is actually Rizal-full more so these days because of the coming premiere screening of my project A mi? Lolo Jose is guarding me no doubt.
