Origin8 is our distributor in the Philippines and I couldn’t be happier with the work they are doing to prepare the audience for AMIGO. John and I were also VERY pleased with the dinner they had to welcome us. Picture a round table in a Chinese restaurant, the lazy susan groaning with the weight of the best Filipino food including eggplant torta, one of my favorite pinoy dishes. Our hostess Mari Lamasan on the left with the sweetest baby boy,and next to her artist Geraldine Javier, Raymond Lee at the rear, hardworking Tammy Dinopol, Emman Dela Cruz , John, me (curly hair again!), Ioni and Issi. You’re bound to meet the full 8 sooner or later. Jade Castro, one of the 8, directed the BTS (Behind the Scenes, Filipinos like an acronym) which is the EPK (Electronic Press Kit- I guess we like acronyms in the US too). These friends from the cast and crew were among those who came to be interviewed: From left, Joel Torre, Bembol Roco, lovely Rio Locsin,yours truly and John, and our VERY FIRST FEMALE DP, the excellent Lee Briones-Meily.
