Will this idea work well with the Philippines motion picture industry?
Just a thought(again). In my own observation, films from China, Thailand and India are much more fascinating to watch compared to our own movies. Why? Because I find their story telling much more profound & have a lot of sense. Our typical Filipino story is about two people who are in love and the whole story is concentrated on love alone. Take this telenobela “lovers in Paris” ni Piolo and KC. They just shoot some scenes in Paris and the rest is in the Philippines. So how come it is entitled lovers in Paris for? Besides, it is a copy of a telenobela also of a Korean version of the same title. Filipinos are great photocopier of everything. No surprise hindi tayo umaasenso. And mga love team like Gerald and Kim hindi pinaghihiwalay at iyong mga fans ayaw. See how primitive our mentality is. Look at the blockbuster TITANIC of leonardo ‘d Carpio and Kate Winslet, nagpareha pa ba sila after the Titanic? Never. They separated and each goes his/her own way. Because they move on. Pero sa atin my goodness, we see these people all the time from television through movies. Aren’t you fed up? Ganito kasi lang ang kumita sa Pilipinas, fair the two people and make movies. Sa paggawa lang ng telenobela just pick one Tagalog song and make a script “wallah” meron ka ng telenobela. Habang tumatakbo ang character sa soap opera tumutogtog ang Tagalog theme song. See how corny we make a telenobela or movie for that matter. Habang nag uusap ng masinsinan ang mga character sa soap meron nagpiya piyano, don’t you notice this? Parang stage play ang dating. Laging meron piano tune everytime someone is talking or arguing in one scene. Bakit gnun?
WELL MY IDEA is this. Make one movie with all Filipino cast naturally at since lagi naman English sub titles and ginagawa like AND I LOVE YOU SO, IN MY LIFE, MY BIG LOVE….etc why not make an English title and the characters to speak in fluent English, bawal ang mag Tagalog or Ilokano or mag Bisaya or Kapangpangan etc. You might say why in English since these characters are Filipino. Didn’t you say Filipinos are good in English? So why not prove it in a motion picture flick. We can line up the best English speakers like Sam Melby and Anne Curtis, or even Kris Aquino and Boy Abunda…etc. The reason is not to prove Filipinos are good English speakers but to market the film abroad much more efficient if it is spoken in English, don’t you think so? No more translation you see below the screen like kung Tagalog iyon film meron pang English translation sa baba for marketing purpose abroad. So now we incorporate these people to speak the language of English through out the film. Will this work? I guess it is. Bakit walang sumusubok nito sa atin bansa nun? Subok lang I mean trial of some sort. Kung baga a prototype, if it works then it is considered a milestone in Philippines movie industry. Kasi kung nagpupunta ang mga Warner Bros. or Paramount to shoot in the Philippines at kumuha ng Filipinos napipilitan silang mag English siempre so why not do the reverse, and do it on our own terms. What do you think?
most of the reasons that you stated are true but the main reasons are: the story, the plot, the main characters. the acting of these actors and actresses are not exceptional. who cares if they are good looking or not. we the audience want to be convinced of the story and the characters these people are portraying. we need good writers (enough of cheap and mababaw na story plot), we need excellent directors and we need you- deliverance to be the producer. enough said. the producers in our country only have one motto: make it cheap and earn big!
the TV and movie industry is a big insult to Filipino mentality. how can they uplift peoples mentality when instead of teaching them to think they teach them to be mentally retarded.
