“PITONG MAKATA”

Robert:”Ang buhay ay hindi hinahati ng liwanag at oras… Ang buhay? Oo, pinagsasama siya ng oras at liwanag… Pero sinasamahan ng pagmamahal”—- (sabi ni Robert, ang pangunahing tauhan sa istoryang “Pitong Makata”).**

poet poet3 poet4“Hindi ako makatulog kagabi. Panay ang pasok ng mga bagong ‘ideas’ sa sinusulat kong film script. At nung madaling-araw na, naging PITO na ang ‘apat na makata’. Meaning ‘Pitong Makata’ na sila. I am now half way in the STORY LINE. Ang ganda ng istorya!!!

‘Yung apat na makata, may makikilalang tatlo pang mga makata sa Maynila. Kaya naging pito na sila.

Hindi ko alam kung paano pumasok sa isipan ko ang napakagandang film script na ito! I have in my mind as of the moment the cast na siya ring nasa imahinasyon ko ngayon habang nagsusulat. Ang cast: KIERWIN LARENA as Robert (the male lead character of the film script), MICHAEL PANGILINAN as Walter, GERALD SANTOS as Pedro, JANSEN AGUILAR as Anton, NIKKI CO as Michael, MIGGY TOLENTINO as Glenn and introducing JHAY-R LAGRIMAS as Jay. With LANCE RAYMUNDO as Sunny and VINCE TANADA as Vincent in very special roles.

Ako po mismo ang magdidirek ng film script na ito”.

The film “Edsa” chronicled the lives of people of got entangled in the historical period of Edsa Revolution. And Lance was among the great cast ensemble of this film.

“This is a such a good start for my movie career after a brief hiatus when I went into the world of Politics last year, but now I am back again into the movie scene”, Lance told a blogger. “It’s a good sign, a refreshing one. It makes me inspired to do more movies again.”

“i go where life takes me”— lance

cropped-lancex.jpg

Who says that handsome and boyish Lance Raymundo is sad these days? Those who says that, better think twice. Because Lance is as happy as ever, handsome as ever, sincere as ever, and most of all, sizzling as ever!!!

During a cool late lunch date with actor Lance Raymundo more than a week ago at Teresita’s restaurant, the actor showed so much positive insights and now ready to face more challenges that will come his way, after nearly winning as one of the Councilors in San Juan City. He may have lost, but the experience gave him a more clearer view on the world of Politics- and as what he had said to his blogger-friend: “The next time I run again, I know now, and I’ll definitely not lose once I run again!”

What a very positive thought. It really can’t stop the feeling.

“First of all, I guess it’s not yet my time yet to win”, Lance said at the start to the blogger. “Let’s think of it more on the brighter side, di ba? I am a first-timer to run, and that gives a lot more reason that I may fail. I already campaigned late. My dad got hospitalized pa during my campaign season in San Juan, I was hospitalized also because of Dengue. Those reasons left me with very minimal time to campaign and to further promote myself to the people of San Juan. But surprisingly, I still landed the top 9th spot among all the bets for Councilors in San Juan.

“Considering that I am still a newcomer, that’s not bad enough”, Lance continued. ‘I can honestly say, it was a clean elections there in San Juan. If ever I run again in six years time, sisipagan ko nang talaga ang pag-ikot all-over San Juan. But now, I am still so thankful to all those who voted for me. Among the 18 wanna-be Councilors in San Juan, I landed the top 9th place, and that’s fair enough.”

Indeed, Lance is heading for a lot more tasks, conquests and adventures.

“I go to where life takes me”, Lance meaningfully continued to say. “What really provoked me to run in San Juan is the thought of spreading my message to the people, especially to the youth. I know that I touched so many lives there. I know that in my own little way, I imparted something to them, gave them hope and inspired them anew. That alone was a fulfillment for me.

“To the hearts of the people, I already won. I wanted to show to them that here’s a candidate who held-on to his moral beliefs and values. Who didn’t compromise and stood-upon on his own convictions.”

Those words alone of Lance indeed made us think what will happen now to the new Governance of the land. We don’t want to be presumptive, but we feel now, CHANGE is not enough. Only sincerity and faith can make a NATION grow.

Anyway, Lance is now preparing to be active again on the movie scene. he also have pans to resume his singing career before the year ends. But now, Lance is officially the new endorses of the Calayan Surgicentre (by Dr. Manny Calayan and his wife Dr. Pie Calayan). A billboard is underway which will feature Lance as their model.

More on Lance on the coming issues of this blog site. Watch out!

“It’s not yet my time to be an officially elected public servant, but my humble service will continue even as an ordinary citizen”— lance raymundo

LANCE: MOVING-ON!
LANCE: MOVING-ON!

“It’s not yet my time to be an officially elected public servant, but my humble service will continue even as an ordinary citizen.

Heartfelt gratitude to Congressman Ronny Zamora, Vice Mayor Francis Zamora & Team San Juan for believing in me and having me on board!

Lifelong gratitude to all our volunteers, poll watchers, street leaders, coordinators (I’d love to tag you all but not everyone are on Facebook so I decided to just make it general because I love you all equally) and of course my overall coordinator TitaRosanna!

And last but not the least, I’d like to thank the whole City of San Juan for embracing me and making me feel loved and accepted… for lending me their ear when I have something to say…. And for trusting me enough to share their thoughts and lives with me. Needless to say, I love you all too! I’ve learned a lot from this experience and I hope I was able to impart some goodness and inspiration to everyone during our ten month journey together!

God bless us all! I’m just your neighbor, so we will definitely be seeing each other again! ” —

MULA SA FB POST NI RANNIE RAYMUNDO, ANG KUYANG BARAKO NI LANCE RAYMUNDO:

Mga minamahal kong Sanjuaneños… Suportahan niyo po ang aking kapatid na si Lance Z. Raymundo! Sa mga nakasama ko at napagsilbihan sa district 2 ganun din sa diatrict 1. Noong ako ay nanunungkulan sa Brgy Greenhills, umabot ako di lamang sa ibat ibang Barangay sa district 2… Pati na rin sa district 1 ng tahimik. Naniniwala ako at nakasisiguro na maipagpapatuloy ng aking nakakabatang kapatid ang serbisyong ito lalo na kung mahalal siya bilang konsehal ng bayan. Bagamat wala na po ako sa politika… Alam niyo na ako ay nandirito pa rin upang manilbihan. Ang puri at pasasalamat ay binibigay naming magkapatid sa aming magulang na siyang nagturo sa amin ng tunay na diwa ng SERBISYO sa kapwa! Ang natutunan namin ay siyang ibig namin ipamahagi sa inyo. Suportahan niyo po ang aking kapatid! Kahit ano pa man ang inyong partido o team. Ang aking loyalty ay para sa isa lamang…. Ang aking minamahal sa San Juan. Wag po kalimutan si LANCE RAYMUNDO! Isang tunay na anak ng San Juan at kapatid ni KUYA BARAKO!”—RANNIE RAYMUNDORANNIEX

isa pang bukas na liham para kay “papa” lance raymundo…

lance raymundo
lance raymundo

Minamahal kong Papa Lance,

Minsan ay inisip ko noon- Nakatulong nga ba ako sa karera mo sa pelikula, lalo na sa pagpasok mo sa masalimuot na mundo ng Politika? Marahil, sari-sari na ang mga naririnig mo ukol sa akin. Mga taong nakapaligid sa propesyonal mong buhay ngayon- mga taong nangangalaga sa imahen mo at nagmamalasakit lamang na maituwid ang tama. Hindi ko naman po sila masisisi, Papa Lance, dahil ginagawa lamang nila ang trabaho nila at ang tama nilang mga layunin.

Kaya naman nagpasya ako. Buwan ng Oktubre iyon, taong 2015. Naisip ko, baka hindi na ako nakakatulong sa iyo, bagkus ay nakakasira pa. Kaya sabi ko sa sarili ko, lalayo muna ako, Papa Lance. Baka may mga nagagalit na sa pakikipaglaban mo na mapanatili ang FRIENDSHIP natin. Baka ayaw na nila. Baka may iba na silang gustong ipalit na mga bloggers para maging visible ka pa rin sa mundo ng viral world.

Oo, Papa Lance. Sinadya ko iyon. Umiwas ako, lumayo. Hindi kasi ganu’n kainam ang imahen ko bilang isang blogger. Baka makasira ako sa pagtakbo mo sa San Juan bilang isang Konsehal. Isinakripisyo ko ang damdamin ko para sa ikabubuti mo. Maski ba nahirapan talaga ako. Dahil isang totoong kaibigan at napakabait na tao ang hindi ko nakita sa mahigit na apat na buwan na ngayon.

Hanggang sa nabalitaan ko na lang, nagkasakit ka ng Dengue. Nag-aalala ako ng husto. Pero nanalig ako sa Panginoon na mapapagaling ka NIYA. At mahigit isang linggo lang, nakita ko na sa Facebook mo na dumalo ka sa kaarawan ni direk Elwood Perez, at kasama mo pa sa larawan si Mother Lily Monteverde.

Nasiyahan na ako at nalugod. Mabilis ang naging paggaling mo sa sakit na Dengue. Sadyang may mga anghel na nagprotekta sa iyo.

Ngayon ay abala ka muli. Sa darating na Cine Filipino Film Festival, kasali ang isang pelikula mo- ang Tulay Ng San Sebastian, na kung saan ay isang napakahalagang papel ang ginampanan mo. Nu’ng huli tayong magkita sa Teresita’s restaurant sa may Tomas Morato (ang regular nating “meeting venue”), nasabi mo sa akin na proud na proud ka sa pelikulang ito. Kasi, ang direktor mo sa pelikulang ito ay si Alvin Yapan, na kinilala sa ibang bansa, at kung saan ay si David Beckham pa minsan ang nag-announce ng isang pelikula nito sa isang international film festival sa ibang bansa.

At sa darating na February 23 to 26, ipapalabas ulit sa University of the Philippines ang mga pelikula mo sa nagdaang Cinema One Originals Filmfest, isa na rito ang Manang Biring.

Hinihintay ka na rin ng mga alaga mong mga maysakit na bata sa Tahan-Tahanan Halfway Home, na kung saan ay isa ka sa mga sikat na movie celebrities na madalas pumasyal doon tuwing may okasyon at mga pagkakataon. Pamilyar na pamilyar ka na sa kanila at mahal na mahal ka na ng mga Cancer Kids na iyon. At sa Pebrero a-dose na ang kanilang anniversary at iniimbita ka ng P.R. nilang si Rogelio “Ogie” Constatino Medina.

Sa tuwing bibisita ako sa isang kaibigan ko na nakatira sa San Juan, naririnig ko na kung gaano katunog ang pangalan bilang isa sa magiging Konsehal ng lugar nila balang-araw- sa nalalapit nang mga araw. Sinasabi ko sa kanila kung gaano ka kabait na tao, kung gaano kalaki na ang naitulong mo sa akin. At paulit-ulit ko pa ring sasabihin- wala ang SSSIP’S AWE blog site ngayon kung hindi dahil sa naging tulong at suporta mo.

Alam na alam kong magiging isang magaling kang Public Servant balang araw, Papa Lance. Kasi, una sa lahat ay hindi mainitin ang ulo mo, may strong convictions ka, may proper breeding at higit sa lahat, may malambot na PUSO.

Anuman ang mangyari, Papa Lance, nandito lang ako. Huwag mo akong alalahanin. Sanay na ako sa mga batikos nila laban sa pagkatao ko. Basta ang mahalaga, malaman mo na hindi magbabago ang pagtingin ko sa iyo-

DAHIL MAHAL NA MAHAL KA “NAMIN”, PAPA LANCE.

 

Hanggang dito na lamang at maraming salamat,

ROBERT.*

“MAKATA” premiere night tonight at cinema 5 of fisher mall…

makataIt’s an all-star cast film. Punong-puno ng mga MAKATA. Mga modernong MAKATA ng makabagong pamumuhay… Halika, at manood tayo. Tiyak niyan, muli na naman nating nanamnamin ang isang uri ng mundo na puno ng tamis, mga tula, at kalyaan…

Mamayang gabi, sa Cinema 5 ng Fisher Mall sa may Quezon Boulevard, ang lahat ng cast ng pelikulang MAKATA ay dadalo sa kanilang natatanging Premiere Night at Special Screening for friends and media. Mula sa imbitasyon ng direktor-prodyuser ng pelikula na si Mr. Dave Cecilio ang imbitasyon na ito.

“Ngayon pa lang ay nagpapasalamat na po ako sa lahat ng mga taong sumuporta sa amin, lalong-lalo na ang cast ng mga pelikulang ito- ang mga artista ko sa pelikulang ito na hindi naging maramot upang ialay ang kani-kanilang mga husay at kakayahan”, nasabi pa ni Mr. Cecilio sa isang text message para sa blogger na ito. “Lahat sila ay mahuhusay sa pelikulang ito. Lalo na sina Lance Raymundo, Sam Concepcion at Mr. Rez Cortez. Kasama na rin ang lahat- basta napakasaya ko at napakagagaling nila. Kaya naman excited na ako sa aming gaganaping Premiere Night mamayang gabi. See you there.”

lance raymundo has a very surprising role in "MAKATA'
lance raymundo has a very surprising role in “MAKATA’

May very surprising role sa pelikulang ito si Lance Raymundo. Tiyak na magugulat ang lahat sa kakaiba niyang role dito. It’s really one-of-a-kind role!!!

Ang MAKATA ay isang advocacy film. Ginawa ni Mr. Cecilio ang pelikulang ito para sa mga kabataan. Para muling manumbalik ang kanilang pagkahilig sa paggawa ng mga tula at literary expression.

Ito pa lamang ang simula. Lilibot ang MAKATA sa iba’t-ibang eskuwelang sa tulong DepEd (Dept. of Education) at balak din nilang ilibot ang pelikula sa ibang bansa.

Goodluck, Mr. Dave Cecilio and company. See you tonight!!!

“MAKATA” SYNOPSIS :

MAKATA (Poet) is a 90-minute digital film about a term tagged to a Filipino who speaks and writes poetically of his love and life expressively. The narrative flow of the story depicts the evolution of Philippine literature and poetry that centers in a life of a 68 year-old former poet or `Lakandiwa ng Tondo’-LOLO KANOR (Rez Cortez) . He became mute in 2011 due to a mild stroke, but his 21 year-old grandson KIKO (Sam Concepcion) , a high school dropout supports themselves through street food vending since Kiko‘s OFW parents got separated. KIKO joins the `Konektado’ series of `Fliprap Events-Sunugan’ street rap-battle
whenever he closes his kiosks and after attending
to his grandpa’s needs. Like his `Lolo Kanor’, Kiko voices out his angst in life through poetic rap by joining rap battles. His
childhood friends JOSE (Angelo Ilagan) and SONIA (Claire Ruiz) , support him whenever he joins `Sunugan’ rap battle. Jose is the `Prinsipe ng Bigkasan’ in his senior year and he visits Kiko’s pad to consult and borrow written poems from Lolo Kanor. Jose and Lolo Kanor acquaint each other on the same interest about `Balagtasan’ and negates Kiko’s flip-rap. Kiko’s pregnant live-in partner BRENDA (Dianne Medina) spells an unconventional inspiration to the poet. Lolo Kanor tries to express his non-verbal form of his poetry despite his condition. Jose provides profundity on this art. Kiko continues to hone his rap skill. Until a tragedy gives meaning to what the real
`MAKATA’ is all about.
