Talking about digital Indie Films – Cinemaone 2011

ANG ATING pag-uusapan ngayon ay tungkol sa mga nararanasan ng mga gumagawa ng independent films. Siyempre, una sa lahat ay dapat mong malaman kung ano ang gagawin mo. Dahil pinasok mo ang larangang ito ay, handa ka ba or naudyukan ka lamang dahil nanonood ka lamang dati ng mga indie? Or dahil nabasa mo ang script, dahil ipinagkatiwala sa ‘yo ng isang writer or puwede ring ikaw na mismo ang gumawa at nagdirek para echo-diretso?

Anyway, marami kang mae-encounter na problema. Ah, okey, itabi muna natin ang productions mo at pag-usapan muna natin ang location shoot at isipin kung tama ba ito sa hinihingi ng kuwento mo at kung sa ngayon ba sa idea, genre na maaaring kalabasan ng project. Nandyan pa ang weather conditions, at kinakailangang magpapalit ng location. Magsasayang ka na ng araw at panahon, ng production cost .

Kaya ang in-interview natin sa article na ito ay hango sa mga sinabi ni Direk Victor Villanueva ng ‘My Paranormal Romance’. Ito ay tungkol sa isang romance-horror-comedy na ginawa sa Cebu. “The cast members are Phoebe Kaye Fernandez, Publio Briones III, Van Roxas and Paul Jake Castillo.”

Before parang nakakatawa. Aniya, ‘di siya sumusuko basta, kahit minsan gusto niya nang mag-quit dahil sa hirap ng film.  So comedy ba ang tema? “Ah, no…no! ‘Yung Paranormal Romance, medyo may comedy.”

Dahilan sa baguhan ka, natataranta ka ba sa mga na-encounter mong problema? O, ano? “I was so happy na napili. Alam mo na ‘yung pressure. Sa akin, mas komportable ako rito.” Natatawang nagbibiro si Direk Villanueva.

Alam mo na siyempre may production, ano nararamdaman mo, sumasakit din ang ulo mo? “Unfortunately, pagdating sa ganu’n, tawa lang kami ng tawa. So everyone, are really happy and enjoyed it.”

Na-encounter lang nila ‘yun bang ‘pag maulan. Ayon sa kanya, hindi iyon madali at nag-gesture pa siya na minsan naka-encounter pa sila ng abot dibdib na baha. Nakunan mo ba doon sa Cebu ‘yung mga nagluluto roon, ‘yung mga Sutukil doon because I was there few years ago sa Cebu. Grabe ‘yung mga nilulutong mga pagkain doon sarap, ‘yum! Yummy! Natatawang sumagot siyang, “Oo naman!”

 

THE UP Vargas Museum in cooperation with the Drawing Room Gallery opens the exhibition Drawing by Jose Legaspi on 8 May 2012, Tuesday, 4pm, at the 3F South Wing of the Vargas.

Jose Legaspi presents a suite of small drawings and two large portraits in his continuing reflection on how it is to intuit the structure of feeling for the self as revealed in a particular state or stance and amid the hectic details of visions of the world.

Legaspi (b. 1959) was in the graduate program of the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts from 1985 to1986. His training, however, was in the sciences, earning degrees in biology and zoology from the University of Santo Tomas.

Legaspi has exhibited extensively both locally and abroad in museums and galleries such as Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan (2009), Epai d’Art Contemporani de Castello, Spain (2000), Cultural Center of the Philippines (1992), Art Lab, Manila (1990); and represented in such platforms as Scope Basel (2010), Istanbul Biennale (2003), The Japan Foundation Forum (2002), Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane, Australia (2002), to name a few.

Drawing will run until 16 June 2012. Opening Reception on 8 May, Tuesday, 4pm.
