Costanilla: American filmmaker mulls Cebuano film

PRODUCER. Singing entrepreneur Hildi Montesclaros of the Bio-Troff Herbal Products fame is definitely joining the colorful world of showbiz by becoming a movie producer. This I personally gathered from Ate Ging, as she is fondly called, during a meeting with line producer Anne Angus. I also learned that a multi-awarded screenplay writer and an American filmmaker, whose names I can’t reveal as of now, will be involved in the production.

DIRECTOR. But they told me that Peach Caparas, daughter of noted film director Carlo J. Caparas, will meg Ate Ging’s debut production. Of course, there will be a casting call or audition before the cameras start to grind. It is necessary to make sure that all local stars that will appear in the planned movie are quality actors and actresses.

LAUDABLE. It is indeed very laudable on the part of Ate Ging to produce the planned flick whose plot I don’t have the liberty to plug yet. She insisted that the planned movie should be in Cebuano/Visayan but with English subtitles as it will be screened nationally and internationally. “My focus or target audience would be the massive Pinoy communities across the globe because I’m sure they can easily relate to the plot,” Ate Ging emphasized.

FILMMAKERS. As to those technical people involved in the planned flick, Angus assured that some young but creative graduates from an international film academy will be working with Caparas in completing the production. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the start of the filming of the planned movie.
