Artists grow and expand their horizons. Their wings flies higher and further reach new heights. Artists, they experiment, too, oftentimes. They learn new things, offer new surprises, create deep marks and impressions.
And that kind of artistry can be seen in form and reality- in person of GERALD SANTOS.
Yes, Gerald now is exploring deeper… way deep of his inborn artistic talents.
“I can honestly say now, Tito Robert, that I found a great passion for acting”, Gerald told a friend-blogger. “I never realized that I will enjoy doing acting so much. It’s one aspect in my personality that was unleashed now. I can say, I really love to act, the same way I really love to sing.”
Yes, Gerald has widened his artistic capabilities through acting. It can be clearly seen in his upcoming new indie film- “Memory Channel”, directed by young and fresh film director- Rayn F. Brizuela.
“The film is a complex one”, Gerald further said. “It deals with the psychological aspect of one lost, young man. His memories fade in and out. he gets to be so disturbed. And I found so much challenge and beauty in portraying the character of my role in the film Memory Channel.”
One blogger already saw the first part of the film. And that blogger could attest that Gerald’s style of acting is impeccable, raw and sensitive. He is the next young actor to watch in terms of greatness and intensity.
“Oh, wow, thanks for the compliments, Tito Robert Silverio”, Gerald reacted. “What I can say now is I simply did my best. And I just hope that people will love it.”
Very well said, Gerald. Below are some of the details about the film Memory Channel:
“MEMORY CHANNEL”, a drama-fantasy-psychological thriller starring Epy Quizon, Bodjie Pascua, Patrick Patawaran, Michelle Vito, and Gerald Santos in his first starring role, directed by Raynier Brizuela.
