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….

On Asiong Salonga-Director’s Version – Thank You Noel Vera!

Thanks Noel Vera for believing in us!!!

Last night, I read the film critic’s article on the issue, which whether I like it or not, involves me [Click to read Asiong Salonga-Director’s Version )

Later, I’ll blog on how it is to edit A Tikoy Aguiluz Film…for the benefit of future Creative film editors, or those who aspire to be — most especially for those who are just Cutters or Technically Competent in running the computers, and all those who just Cut for Cutting Sake! Yung mga Robots lang pag nag eedit. Yung type na Amen nang Amen lang sa prodysusers…Marami yun!!! Para na rin sa mga producers na hindi marunong magbigay respeto sa mga nasa likod ng camera.

Merry Christmas to all!

Btw, sakay ka sa float Tikoy???? O, sa virtual float ka sasakay? O, magfloat ka na lang tulad ni Asiong sa morgue scene… kasi PINATAY, o rather, KINATAY nila film natin? Ha!Ha! Cool ka lang ha? Dami ka pang dapat gawing pelikula..
