It always makes a difference when you work with professionals and you can’t really see and feel the difference until you’ve done so, in one of my short film that I wrote, produced and directed last year, I had the privilege to work with one of Philippines actress Ms. Jennifer Lee.

Directing Jennifer for the first time was indeed a wonderful experience, she was spot on when it comes to dialogue ad lib, she seem to know what to say before I tell her to say it. She knows the right angles where to position herself, I don’t even have to block her, once I set up the camera she knows the rules of it, the 180 degree rule.

“Selfei” was indeed another short film that I’m really proud of not only because its fun to work with an A list actress from Philippines but also because as a filmmaker I learned a lot from actress like her.

Now with our first feature film “Year After” I’m happy and proud to say that experienced really counts, after writing, producing and directing over 15 short films and documentaries and hundreds of TVC to date this film is a labor of love.

And I thank all the wonderful and great actors and actresses I’ve worked with in one way or the other, from film actress Nora Aunor, Boy Abunda, Nyoy Volante, Kay Brosas, Regine Velasquez, Joyce Jimenez, Alan K, Kris Aquino, Joshua Zamora, Jopay Paguio, Ricky Belmonte, Pops Fernandez, Billy Crawford, Dina Bonnevie, Maribel Lopez, Eugene Dominguez, Erik Santos, Epi Quizon, Bong Navarro, Alfred Vargas, Spanky Manikan, Tony Mabesa, Arnel Ignacio, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Iya Villena, John Prats, Kris Lawrence, Jay-R, Geneva Cruz, Ian de leon, Pepe Smith, Dina Bonevie, German Moreno, Rachel Ann Go, Melanie Marquez, and others, on the Indian actors, Jayasurya, Fahad Fasil, Madhuri Dixit, Vineeth, and Jackie Fernandez, on Hollywood actress and directors I’ve worked with late Roger Vadim husband of Jane Fonda, Joanna Cassidy, Cyndi Pickett, on other International actors Patience Ozokwor, Robert Cristian Trif, Annina Fedorkova, Erika Herbert, and all the other actors, actress, directors and crews that gave me constant advice, in this world of filmmaking, thank you very much, and I know that the list will continue on.
