Release of 'Tiktik' sequel set this year-A A +A
Thursday, March 7, 2013
KAPUSO hunk actor Dingdong Dantes is set to release the sequel of his horror-action-comedy film, Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles, anytime this year.
Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles, which was directed by Erik Matti for GMA Films, was released October 17 of last year.
The film starred Dingdong Dantes, Lovi Poe, Joey Marquez, Janice de Belen, Roi Vinzon and LJ Reyes.
In an interview with the Davao entertainment press during his recent visit here, the 32-year-old actor said that his fans have a lot to look forward to when it comes to the part 2 of this movie.
"Basta this year talaga sya ipapalabas. Wala pang date kung when we are going to start but we’re eyeing to show it by end of the year siguro," he said when asked on the target showing of Tiktik 2.
Dingdong's film outfit, Agosto Dos Pictures, is among the producers of the sequel.
From CGI to miniatures
While the first offering of Tiktik featured full computer-generated imagery (CGI), the second part will boast of miniature effect.
CGI is an application of computer graphics to create and enhance some scenes in the movie. As with this movie, the horrific, man-eating creatures with a taste for fetuses come into life through CGI.
Meanwhile, miniature effect uses scale models to create special effects on motion pictures.
"Kung ang flagship last year was full CGI, this year, we will work around with miniatures. Alam n'yo sa ibang malalaking pelikula, akala mo ay malalaking buildings talaga. Sa hitsura ay parang one is to one pero sa laki ay malayo talaga," he said adding that a set will really be constructed for the scale models.
On working with Kapamilya stars
In 2012, the actor worked on two films with Star Cinema -- Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme with Eugene Domingo and One More Try with Angelica Panganiban, Angel Locsin, and Zanjoe Marudo.
Dingdong said working the Kapamilya stars is just like working with other actors and actresses in the industry.
"You know what, there's not much difference. Para lang din 'yang same people, same culture. Nag-iba-iba lang ng pangalan. At the end of the day, pare-pareho lang tayong gustong gumawa ng magandang project," he said.
However, he shared that the difference lies on the capacity that each star has to contribute to the project.
"Siguro 'yong iba ay nagva-vary lang doon sa talent… Iba-ibang actors, production staff, people behind the camera kaya magkaiba ang results," he said. (Jenny Molbog-Mendoza)
