Makati: Worm’s-Eye View

Call me sheltered but I found it hard to believe that there’s another hospital in Makati other than Makati Medical Center. C’mon, if someone asks you for a hospital in Makati, I’m quite sure that the first thing you’ll utter is, “Makati Med.”

When I found out that the location of my short film shoot in March is in Ospital ng Makati, I went straight to Google for directions. I couldn’t find the official website, office phone number or even a decent Facebook page of Ospital ng Makati. With the help of Google Maps, I was surprised to find OsMak (yes, some folks refer to it as OsMak!) along Malugay Street. It’s a just a walk away from Zuellig Loop and Makati Fire Station.

I won’t comment on the hospital’s services and amenities, but I will gush about the great view. We filmed for almost 21 hours straight, so the scenic view of Makati Golf Club’s driving range, RCBC Plaza, and other neighboring high-rise buildings helped keep my mood cheerful while filming “Wealth,” a short film directed by Joel Ruiz of Arkeo Films.

And if you’d like to see my first attempt at indie film acting, watch it here:
