Who cares about a 3:30 a.m. call time and 21-hour shoots when the location takes your breath away? Last month, we spent two days filming my new indie film, Habhab a Nice Day! in Tanay, Rizal. It’s only two hours away from Manila, but Tanay’s vintage culture makes a great escape from the woes of the metro.
We were there for business over pleasure, but I managed to snap a lot of photos. And it wasn’t just because my character is a budding photographer.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, you have two days left to catch it on Philippine TV. Scroll down to see the schedule and info.
A 10-minute short film for Alaska’s Cinemainit Series, Habhab a Nice Day! is about a poignant summer weekend of two college best friends, Patty and Misha.
7 p.m. nightly from May 29 to June 4 only on Cinema One (Philippine cable)
