I don’t want to make my life just to be happy like a normal film, I will make it SPECTACULAR and MAGICAL just like the upcoming film “YEAR AFTER” that were filming now, it’s going to be Spectacular. Now you ask me how do we measure being spectacular? Is it the production budget of the film? Is it the number of sponsors, or is it the number or brand of camera used.
No, never, it;’s none of these, look at the difference between Moonlight and La La Land, they were both great films, but Moonlight won the Best Picture because it is spectacular, it is magical, because we remembered Chiron the boy that grew up and how circumstances affected his life and how we sympathize with him on what he went through.
No one can take the glory or moment from you if you never had it, and if you have the glory or self-worth, whatever the people, society, or anyone does to you, your self-worth will remain no matter what.
There are always good filmmaker, but once in a while we come across good filmmakers who happen to be good storytellers at the same time, and those are the ones that become legends, we are not here to compete with anyone but ourselves, we know where we stand and we just continue to work and do our job with passion, with heart, heart, heart…
“Year After” written and directed by Albert Gayo featuring Angelo Carl, Arnel Hasigan, Lawrence Binghay, coming soon to cinemas near you.
