An MNR Film (Philippine Fashion Week 2010)

Marlon Rivera had a plan. Instead of having a runway show for Philippine Fashion Week 2010, he decided a short film would showcase his collection.

On a short notice, I was rounded up to be part of the shoot. I didn’t know what to do or what to expect on the shoot day. As the director, Cholo Laurel, said, “No pre-prod, no script, all randomly shot with one theme in mind, “scheme” and then sa editing na lang gumawa ng istorya (the story was formed during editing)…hahahah”

Great things can happen when great minds come together, and a bit of luck.

I yearn to do more works like this.
