What could be more dramatic and glorious, when you saw a young man standing infront of you and you suddenly felt the jitters and the overwhelming feelings of a motherly love?
What could be more passionate than seeing a group of young film makers all lined-up on the stage and out to share their thoughts on the art of filmaking infront of media people?
And what could be more grateful than embracing and hugging back your longtime colleagues and comrades in the field of entertainment writing, wow, truly wonderful.
“Thank you, thank you, ang babait ninyo.”
Was all a blogger could say to himself during the recently-held 2014 Cinema One Originals press conference. It was an event he could never forget.
Seeing actor JM de Guzman being flunked by writers and TV crewmen made one felt so happy.
As Shamaine Buencamino readily agreed to take a pose for a camera and graciously answered questions by media people, as the “Princess of Indie Films” in person of Mara Lopez took a seat beside you and spent time, and as Jericho Rosales so warmly delighted you with his smiles and gestures of kindness…
The indie film industry would never be the same again.
The press conference was a huge success. The most respected senior and veteran entertainment journalists were all there, bloggers, columnists, TV anchors…. whew.
Indeed, this is INTENSE. The best crop of young film makers out to show their crafts in a festival that’s most-awaited and most cherished.
