Producers Agreed to Remove Name of Tikoy Aguiluz as Director of Asiong Salonga

December 24, 2011

Just read moments ago that: “… The producers of Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story have agreed to remove the name of Amable “Tikoy” Aguiluz VI from this period film, which earlier credited him as the director.”

The TRO “restrains the respondent from using the name of the complainant [Amable “Tikoy” Aguiluz VI] in the film credits, billboards, posters and other documents and promotional materials in relation to the film Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story.

When (Philippine Entertainment Portal) interviewed Direk Tikoy yesterday, he said:  “The director is the chief creative force of the film, not the producer. Tanggalin nila ang name ko, yun lang naman ang request ko. Respect the rights of the director. I want respect, not just for myself but for all other directors, for the young filmmakers. Nine months kong pinaghirapan ang pelikula. Parang anak ko na ‘yan.”

CONGRATS TIKOY!! Masaya Pasko mo sa wakas dahil si OGUM na papapel!!! [Tikoy jokingly said then that if they will change anything from our film, he will ask for his name’s removal from it. The name Ogum will be there. It’s because we were then wondering why the producers seem to delay the post-production process when we were already about to finish the picture editing of the movie]
