“I am here to serve the arts and not to drown in the abyss called ‘showbusiness’. I don’t intend to stay here for long. Yes, I enjoyed the process of film making, it is one way of feeding my passion and it’s a new kind of art that’s worth discovering. But I am more in-love with theater and the people around me. They are real, selfless and grateful. I will not trade them for anything. Thank you, Robert for being a friend. I feel your genuineness”. – (Vince Tanada’s personal private message to this blogger, Robert Manuguid Silverio)
People will always be people. They are not “super human beings”. They commit mistakes, they stumble, they fall.
What more if people are the kind of people that belonged to the so-called “showbiz” world? All the more they would sound ungrateful, silly, unkind.
Because showbiz people is composed of, in majority, people who knew how to step upon on other people. As they oftentimes say, it’s a “dogs-eat-dogs” kind of people.
But what if there’s a straight kind of PERSON who suddenly gets caught into it? What would he do? How would he stay?
What more if that person belonged to a more professional and strict world of theater arts? Would he evolve?
That, yes, that. That is now the turning point of one artistic and genius man- in person of VINCE TANADA.
VINCE TANADA, AT THE THRESHOLD OF HIS CAREER.
He had proven so much in the world of theater, and people were now pulling him upper to soar for new dimensions…
And one of that is the world of CINEMA.
A Master film maker- in person of director Elwood Perez, immersed with Vince’s ingenuity and artistic skills. The result: a mind-blowing movie entitled “OTSO”, a film entry in the National Film Festival (All Masters Edition) by Sineng Pambansa.
Otso is a purely a “Critics Film”. It meant, it’s the kind of film that film critics choose or approve of- which appealed to their ‘delight’.
Because the said movie is not a romantic one or a “happy-ending”-kind of film. It’s realistic and inventive.
Vince is the lead actor of the film and he also wrote the script.
At the threshold of everyone’s lives, there comes choices and decisions.
The movie “Otso”, once it’s shown tomorrow (September 11, 2013) in all SM Cinemas nationwide, would only prove and answer if Vince Tanada makes it… in the world of Cinema.
As of now, the movie had already been invited in some international film festival already. To date, the movie had gotten mixed feed backs and controversies that simply made the movie HOTTER.
And Vince Tanada is no QUITTER. At this threshold of his life, he stood with valor and gallantry. A living warrior for the arts. And definitely, he’s out to WIN.
And conquer more.
