Friday, September 14, 2012
TELEVISION host Joey Marquez is proud to be part of the upcoming "level up" movie "Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles," which is slated to open in theaters this October.
Produced by Reality Media, Post Manila, Mothership, Agostodos Pictures and GMA Films, the movie was shot entirely on green screen and uses full computer-generated imagery (CGI) effects.
Joey said when the movie was presented to him, there's a sense of curiosity on his part on how the director, Erik Matti, and the whole production staff will be able to deliver such big project.
"When I saw the script and the plans on how they will do it, it gave me a lot of curiosity because this is a "level up" movie. This something for the Philippine cinema and something I would like to be part of which."
It was also a new experience for the actor-turned-tv host as he's acting alone most of the time. He said the movie challenge not only his acting skills, but also his imagination on how to take each scene.
"Kasi sanay ako sa typical, old school acting na may kaharap ka, may nakikita ka. But this one, it is totally new for me. Alienated ako sa nangyayari pero with the guidance of our director, they made sure na lahat ng magiging visuals eh nasa isip namin," he said.
"It's a learning process for me," he added.
The movie which boosts full CGI effects is the first in Philippine cinema. According to Joey the production team perfected the graphics in the movie and the viewers will be thrilled with what they are about to see.
"Di tulad ng araw na pag may lumilipad eh makikita mo pa yung tali minsan, dito malinis talaga. This should be a legacy of Philippine cinema not because I'm here but because it will introduce something new to the people," the actor said.
"I'm very proud when I saw it. I think it's about time we do more films like this," he added.
Aside from director Erik Matti, Joey also worked with LJ Reyes, Lovi Poe, "Showbiz Inside Report" co-host Janice de Belen and actor-producer Dingdong Dantes.
When asked how was it working with Dingdong, the tv host said the Kapuso star never let the whole staff feel that he's superior than them because he co-produces the movie.
"Aside from the fact that I worked with professional actors, staff, writers, director, one thing I noticed talaga is si Dingdong, being the producer, he never showed us any inhibition. He acted among us. Pare-pareho lang kami. The camaraderie was there," he said.
"Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles" will grace the big screen this October 17. (Sunnex)
