direk frannie zamora talks about duterte and cayetano…

duterte: direk frannie zamora's choice for President
duterte: direk frannie zamora’s choice for President

“I remain unpolitical”, bungad na sabi ni direk Frannie Zamora sa isang blogger in one casual conversation. “But I think, it’s VP bet Alan Peter Cayetano who should be credited for Rodrigo Duterte’s phenomenal rise as a future President of this country. From the very start, naroon na siya sa tabi ni Duterte. At nakuha ni Cayetano ang atensyon ng mga  kabataan na pansinin si Duterte dahil sa presence ni Cayetano as his running mate.”

zamora: “artists are open individuals”

Pero dahil sa malakas din ang following nina Chiz Escudero, Leni Robredo at lalo na ni Bongbong Marcos, medyo si Cayetano ngayon ang “dark horse” sa labanan ng VP (Vice President) race. Anyway, kung sakali mang manalo si Duterte, hindi naman siya pababayaan nito, it’s almost panalo na rin si Cayetano, di ba?

 Naitanong namin kay direk Frannie, bakit ang lakas-lakas ng hatak ni Duterte sa mga kabataan at sa mga artists ngayon?

“Because artists are open individuals”, sagot ni direk Frannie. “Basically, iyan ang nature ng mga artists. Bukas ang kalooban nila at mga mata sa mga bagay-bagay. Kaya nagustuhan nila si Duterte. Maraming artists and performers ngayon ang nage-endorso sa kanya. Alam kasi nila, maraming good changes na magagawa si Duterte para sa bansang Pilipinas.

“Pagdating naman sa mga kabataan, ito naman ang mga taong masasabi nating New Breed kasi at noon pa naghahangad ng bagong pagasa para sa mga buhay nila”, dugtong na sabi pa ni direk Frannie. “At kay Duterte nila nakita iyon. Sawang-sawa na ang mga kabataan sa mga pangako ng mga old traditional Politicians. They are now seeking for new idols and leaders na gagabay sa kanila.”

Maski unpolitical si direk Frannie, ngayon lang siya nakumbinse na mag-join sa isang grupo ng mga tao sa viral world na sumusuporta kay Duterte. Naniniwala din kasi siya sa sinseridad ni Duterte to uplift the Philippines, our own beloved country.

“Palabiro siya, pero mararamdaman mo naman na sincere siya as a future leader”, wika pa ni direk Frannie. “Alam mong kikilos siya overnight. Alam mong gagawa siya ng mga aksyon at tamang mga pagbabago para sa ating bansa.”

Nahahati na ngayon ang mga artists sa mga pagpili ng kani-kanilang future President. May mga maka-Grace Poe, may mga maka-Binay at maka-Roxas, at maka-Miriam Santiago. Pero sabi ni direk Frannie, hindi ito dahilan para magka-hiwa-hiwalay ang mga artists ngayon. And let’s give Duterte a chance to prove his worth.

“Kaya Duterte-Cayetano ako, sila ang iboboto ko!”, pagtatapos na sabi ni direk Frannie Zamora, the award-winning director of the theater world, who recently won as Best Director for a Musical Play sa Aliw Awards.

a more fascinating look at direk franniel zamora’s directing style in “kanser@35″…

Let’s talk about the “mood”, the authenticity of feelings revealed, the texture, the VISION.

Now, let’s stare and look at the other details- the universal message, the subtle lighting design, the music, the stage design- which all comprehended with the TOTALITY of one man’s ACCURACY AND TOUCH in stage direction.

Among others, it’s the “genuineness” of his pure intentions, the everlasting effect and “slap” on the one who’s watching the theatrical production being presented on stage.

These and all, were the ones that made all the fascination and the wonders we felt when we watched Kanser @35: The Musical last year.

The direction of Franniel Zamora was truly great. He had this “Midas Touch” of transforming every scene into a “gold-like picture of frames in living colors”. Especially that scene in which, Crisostomo Ibarra, alongside with Elias were rowing a boat on a river as they speak about a nation’s future and their respective beliefs on how to continue fighting for their fellow Filipinos. That scene alone, made us believe that direk Franniel had created a modern classic of a musical play.

Second to that scene was the finale scene. Wherein all the characters spoke and sang of their ashes being spread all-over the LAND. So that the passion and spirit for Nationalism would continue to live-on.

That finale scene made us cry. It stabbed our heart more deeper and penetrating. Just like we felt “being stabbed”, too, with the earlier scenes- because it always taught us something and made us feel guilty of the different kind of notion we have now for living in our beloved Philippines.

We have almost forgotten all those values and proper Filipino ethics that Dr. Jose Rizal have taught us. Not until we saw again direk Franniel’s version of Noli Me Tangere, via his musical play Kanser @35.

Because of his concise and truly magnificent directing style, Rizal’s everlasting message came alive.

And that’s how fascinating direk Franniel’s style of directing a play, was.

No wonder, he won the Best Director for a Musical Play at the Aliw Awards late last year.

A new modern classic form of ART was born.

More performances for Kanser @35, PLEASE.

Nu’ng minsang naging guest speaker sa Elites Acting Workshop ang current Best Director (for a Musical Play) ng Aliw Awards at tinitingalang artist sa mundo ng teatro na walang iba kundi si direk Franniel Zamora, napansin niya ang kakaibang “X-Factor” ng newcomer na si PJ Aguilar Ong. Kaya naman nu’ng araw din na iyon nu’ng magkasarilinan sina direk Franniel at si Blogger SSSIP, nai-reveal niya dito ang isa niyang planong gagawin this year of 2016.

“Robert, I am planning to direct an indie film based on my own life as a former ramp model turned singer and now a theater director”, sabi ni direk Franniel kay Blogger SSSIP. “Although actually, talagang nagsimula ako sa mundo ng teatro bago ako naging isang modelo, kasi nung highschool pa lang ako ay nagdidirek na ako ng mga stageplays. Iyan ang concept ng gagawin kong indie film. At ikaw Robert, ang napipisil kong susulat ng life story ko. At itong si PJ Aguilar naman ang gusto kong gumanap sa papel ko bilang batang Franniel Zamora.”

This could be a good start for PJ Aguilar Ong’s upcoming movie career. Isang batikang direktor kaagad ang nakapansin sa potensyal niya na maging isang dramatic actor. At kamakailan lang, ang P.R. man naman ng ABS-CBN channel 2 na walang iba kundi si Mr. Aaron Domingo ay nagustuhan din ang personalidad ni PJ at sinabi nito na kapag may magandang proyekto, kukunin niya si PJ sa channel 2.

It’s now up to dad Martin Martin, the Godfather of Elites Model Management kung sa channel 2 ba o sa channel 7 niya dadalhin si PJ na lumilikha na ngayon ng alingasngas sa mundo ng showbiz. And this blogger guarantees that PJ can ACT and deliver. He is another GEM in the making!

special photo coverage on the third day of elites acting & modelling workshop (exclusive photos by mr. edwin dc)…

THIS BLOGGER (SSSIP) WHILE TEACHING AT THE ELITES ACTING WORKSHOP
THIS BLOGGER (SSSIP) WHILE TEACHING AT THE ELITES ACTING WORKSHOP
THE BATCH!
THE BATCH!

Sa ikatlong araw ng The Elites Acting & Modelling Workshop, tunay namang humanga at sumaya si Blogger SSSIP sa kanyang mga estudyante at workshop participants nu’ng araw na iyon. Very attentive at eager ang lahat. Kapag nagsasalita na ang kanilang teacher, lahat sila’y nakikinig ng husto. At kapag may mga exercises naman- like physical exercises and acting exercises- ibinibigay ng lahat ng workshop participants ang galing at kakayahan nilang lahat sa pag-arte. Kaya naman tuloy lalong ginanahan ang teacher (ako po iyon) na magturo nuong araw na iyon.

Si dad Martin Martin naman ay nago-observe ng maige. Gusto niyang makita ang mga anak niya at ma-pinpoint ang mga plus-factors ng mga alaga niya para naman kapag may mga projects na sa pag-arte, alam niya ang kakayahan ng mga ito.

Maraming salamat kina Aljon Salonga, Patricia Carriedo, Paul Dominic Aquino, PJ Aguilar Ong, Felix Christian Zepeda, Ladylyn Joy Agconcil, Danny Abella, Matthew (we forgot his surname, dad Martin), Abby, Camille, javen, at iba pa na mga nagsidalo nu’ng araw na iyon. Talagang lumalabas na ang galing nilang lahat sa pag-arte!

And now, the most important thing that happened that day ay ang pagdalo ng tinitingalang direktor sa teatro (who recently won as Best Director for a Musical Play sa nakaraang Aliw Awards) na walang iba kundi si direk Franniel Zamora. Inimbita siya ni Blogger SSSIP na maging V.I.P. guest speaker nu’ng araw na iyon ng workshop.  Ang gaganda ng mga sinabi at tinuro ni direk Fran sa mga estudyante nu’ng araw na iyon. He shared some words of wisdom, acting techniques and advices. Kaya naman ‘touched na touched” ang lahat sa mga sinabi ni direk Fran. At babalik ulit siya sa 4th day of Acting Workshop to give them some physical and acting exercises naman.

Salamat din kay Mr. Edwin DC, our friend from Work With me Photography at sa kasamahan niyang photographer din na si Maro Francia. Talaga namang very supportive sila sa naganap na workshop.

AND NOW WE CAN SAY, MAGPAPATULOY ANG THE ELITES ACTING & MODELLING WORKSHOP. WALANG MAKAPIPIGIL SA AMEN. HINDI KAMI MGA “PABEBE” NA TULAD NG IBA DYAN. NEED I SAY MORE, DAD MARTIN? GO, GO, GO, ELITES!!!

direk franniel zamora will bond with workshoppers on d elites acting workshop this saturday, and talks about his memories with kuya germs…

He recently won as Best Director for a Musical Play at Aliw Awards which was held last December. Dahil sa napakaayos niyang pagkaka-direk sa musical play na “Kanser@35: The Musical”, marami rin ang pumuring theater critics sa kanya at bloggers. For many years, he has dedicated his life for the arts, at sa mga arts and theater circles na kinabibilangan niya, prominenteng-prominente ang visibility niya at socialization. Although he started it out as a singer, sa mundo ng teatro siya mas tiningala at mas hinangaan.

SIYA AY WALANG IBA KUNDI SI DIREK FRANNIEL ZAMORA, ONE OF GANTIMPALA THEATER FOUNDATION’S MOST-LOVED DIRECTOR.

At, napakasuwerte naman ng mga workshoppers ng The Elites Model Management ni dad Martin Martin dahil nagpaunlak si direk Franniel sa imbitasyon ni blogger SSSIP na makipag-bonding sa Sabado, January 16, sa mga modelo at aspiring actors ng The Elites. Yes po, isang magaling na direktor lamang sa teatro ang makakasalamuha nila. Direk Fran will share his thoughts on the art of Film and Theater acting. Naman. Ang bait-bait talaga ni direk Fran sa kaibigan niyang blogger. Nakaka-touch ng puso. Dahil wala siyang hiniling na kapalit, basta sa pakikisama sa kaibigan, all-out si direk Fran!!!

Sinabi pa ni blogger SSSIP kay direk Fran, na very promising sa lahat ng workshoppers ang newcomer na si PJ Aguilar Ong. Kaya naman ngayon pa lang, pinag-uusapan na sa showbiz circles ang “birth of a new actor” in person of PJ Aguilar Ong.

Tuwang-tuwa naman si dad Martin dahil isa si direk Fran sa mga paborito niyang singers nuong bagets pa si direk Fran. Type niyang maging kaibigan si direk Fran.

Meanwhile, isa sa mga nalungkot ng husto si direk Fran sa pagpanaw ng isang haligi ng Entertainment Industry- na walang iba kundi si German Moreno. Kaya naman nu’ng very first day pa lamang ng pagdala sa mga labi ni Kuya Germs sa Mt. Carmel church, kasama si blogger SSSIP ay naroon na agad si direk Fran. Kaya naman nakita nilang dalawa ang pagbaba ng mga labi ni kuya Germs papasok sa loob ng Mt. Carmel church. Saglit ding napaiyak si direk Fran nu’ng mga sandaling iyon.

“Napakalaki ng naitulong sa career ko noon bilang singer ni Kuya Germs”, pagbabalik-gunita pa ni direk Fran. “Kada may bagong single ako at record album, guest agad ako sa mga shows niya na Daigdig Ng Mga Artista at GMA Supershow. Suki na niya ako. Maski na nuong direktor na ako sa teatro, madalas pa rin niya akong i-guest sa Walang Tulugan. Very supportive talaga siya sa mga kapwa niya celebrities.”

Iko-cover ng potograpong si Edwin DC ang pagiging V.I.P. guest ni direk Fran sa darating na Sabado, January 16 sa Elites Acting Workshop. Tiyak na grabeng bonding at acting ang mangyayari niyan. Salamat, direk Fran!!!
