The Old Screenplay

Six months ago, I turned one of my short screenplays into a short film. Before the production stage of The 12th of June, I secretly wished that Jade Lopez would agree to give life to the character of Eloisa, who is a virtual assistant who took a one week break from her hectic work at home (nah, she’s not a housemaid, but she works at home). We shot the 22 minute short film in 14 hours. The first part of the post-production somewhat made me feel hesitant to further continue with the whole film. Thanks to those who believed in the story of the film, I was able to complete the whole thing with flying colors.

It’s been my dilemma for the past few days on which concept to shoot first. I have a number of ideas that I would like to write a screenplay for and eventually transform it into a short film. With the deadline I set for myself, I have to consider a lot of things – Schedule of my cast and crew, location, storyboard, equipments (camera, boom mic etc) and of course, the budget. It’s nice to have a lot of ideas in your minds, but the most challenging part there is to choose on which comes first or what concept to prioritize. If only I am a boss of a film outfit with tons of moolah – i’d probably produce a lot of short and full-length films.

Short Film Screening at Tomato Bomb’s Eksena

December 15, 2009 is a memorable day for me as a film maker. Why? Because for the first time, my short films entitled Kuya Bunso and The 12th of June were shown in a non-blogger event. Thanks to Mr. Mike Dagnalan (Isnats, River of Dreams, Karoler), who serves as one of my mentors at the Sinelab Scriptwriting Workshop for inviting me to be a part of this month’s Eksena at Tomato Bomb.

I invited some of my blogger friends (mostly part of the production team) two nights before the film showing. I am quite confident because the feedback in the Davao Bloggers screening was positive. In fact, half of them preferred Kuya Bunso though most of the girls preferred The 12th of June for obvious reasons 🙂
