SAPI (Possession) Anung kinakatakutan mo?

Sapi (Possession) yan ang unang titulo at unang horror film na ginawa ng isang batikang story teller direktor na si Brillante Mendoza.

Sinu ang sasapian at bakit sinapian? Ilan lang yan sa mga katagang iyong pasasabi pagkatapos mung mapanood ng horror-dokyu film na Sapi.

Anu nga ba ang kwento ng SAPI?

Its a story between the two rival station in the Philippines, the Philippine Broadcasting Channel (PBC) eating up audience share, Sarimanok Broadcasting Network (SBN) is desperate to find a way to toast its plunging rating. It hopes documenting an actual spirit possession could be the breakthrough.

The search for any incident of spiritual possession however becomes so elusive to Meryll Flores(Meryll Soriano),a TV Executive producer who is a trainee. Under intense pressure, she retorts to making a secret deal with BAron Valdez (Baron Geisler), a cameraman of the rival network PBC. She acquires from him footage of a possession and beats PBC to air it on SBN.

The supposed turning point in Meryll's career however spirals into an exorsing reality that mirrors the political system governing the TV Network.

And to know more deeply about this horror-dokyu film I ask Direk Brillante Mendoza about the Sapi.

What exactly the Sapi all about?


Direk Brillante say, "Sapi is basically a horror film about the paranormal phenomenon of the demonic possession. This paranormal occurrence has created widespread fear and curiosity. In this film, the characters running the media network personify apathy and ruthless, while those characters who committed theft and plagiarism thefify unscrupulous media practitioners. The parallelism of the two situations: a case of demonic possession and the callousness of the powerful and influential media exemplify which of them could be more terrifying and fearful.


In perspective, the film is presenting societal issues and crimes committed by those in power with immense and influence on people. The effect and ramifications are so devastating that people have become hardened and accustomed to that fear has become inconsequential. People are afraid and incline to believe that which has not seen, yet refuse to accept and believe things that they normally see that could be truly more horrifying and disturbing.
"

What is your treatment or approached on this story?

Direk Brillante say,"Sapi is treated like a documentary that captures the day-to-day activities of the characters. As the story unfolds, we dig deep into their personal lives and further into their psyches. The film thus feels like a documentary within a documentary, blurring the boundaries between fiction and news.

Sapi is a product of intensive research, crafted with the highest regard for social reality. The main actors immersed in the lives of their characters. There is hardly any script read on the set and we have a cast of non-actors.

The result is a movie that values authenticity. But since this also falls within a film genre (which is a great challenge for me as a filmmaker) like any horror movie, there is substantial dramaturgy and some elements of suspense, thrill and gore. This film, however, was consciously made to deer away from the classic moviemaking, such that the horror would hopefully continue and endure beyond the screening.
"

My Mini Review of the Movie | Spoiler Alert

Isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit napaOO ako sa pumunta at manood ng pelikulang ito dahil unang dahilan si Direk Brillante Mendoza ito, isa sa mga brillant story teller ng indepedent film, ikalawa horror film ito paborito ko ang genre at ikatatlo unang horror film niya, kaya naisip ko kung paano niya gagawin at kung paano naiiba ito sa mga horror film na nakita ko na sa loob at labas ng bansa.

Ibang-iba masasabi ko pude rin siyang gumawa ng horror film at di lamang yun maganda yung pagkakabit-kabit ng mga istorya.

Habang pinapanood ko ang palabas na ito ay may bigla akong naalala dahil parang nakita ko na ang ganitong set-up sa totoong buhay kung saan naglalaban sila sa isang video footage ng isang OFW (oopss spolier hahaha).

Isa sa mga nagustuhan ko dito ay yung cinematography niya, no doubt about dun dahil kilala naman natin si Direk pagdating dun sa bagay na yun, ngunit subalit may ilan sa mga eksena na medyo naguluhan ako marahil parte iyon ni Direk kung saan sinabi niya kanina kung sinu nga ba ang tunay na sinapian, ang isang multo o ang taong buhay.

Isa sa mga best part ng movie na ito ang ay kwento tungkol kay Merryl basta abangan ninyo dahil malaking gulat o pasabog ito para sa lahat.

Sa akting naman ni Dennis Trillio isang malaking boom di dahil magaling siyang artista kundi nadala niya ito ayun sa gusto ni direk at di lamang yun may mga eksenang di mo akalain na gagawin iyon ni Dennis.

Sa akting naman ni Baron, walang masasabi magaling talaga siya sa larangan na yun pero may mga eksenang parang kinakain niya yung mga salita lalo na pag dialect na ang ginagamit. (alam ko yun kasi tiga dun ako)

Over all bibigyan ko ng rating ito na 7 Star.



Trivia:
Ang bulong na itong maririnig sa pelikulang ito ang isang dasal, dasal ng isang demonyo.
Ang mga albularyo o faith healer sa mga eksena ay mga totoong mga albularyo o faith healer.

So wag na wag ninyong papalagpasin ito, showing na this November 06,2013 sa lahat ng sinehan sa bansa..

The Bluebird of Happiness Mini Review


Ika nga ng nila ang kasiyahan ng isang tao ay madali naman makita kung titignan lamang niya kung anu ang nakapaligid sa kanya at wag makuntento lamang sa mga materyal na bagay sa mundo.

Isa sa mga matutunan mo kung ikaw mismo ay napanood mo sa teatro ang "The Bluebird of Happiness" na
ilang shows na lamang ang natitira kaya wag na wag mo itong papalagpasin!

Isa to sa theater show na nagustuhan ko dahil sa ganda ng design ng sets at kung paano nila ibinigay ang set na yun sa mga pinoy, ika nga nila di mawawala ang touch ng pinoy kahit na halaw ito sa isang sikat na libro sa ibang bansa.

beautiful set design of bluebird of happiness
Anu nga ba ang kwento ng "Bluebird of Happiness", bakit ito ang napili ng Trumpets?

A brand new musical from Trumpets written and directed by Jaime del Mundo with original music by Rony Fortich based on the play "The Blue Bird" by Belgian playwright Maurice Maeterlinck.

on the way to the bluebird of happiness?
"The Bluebird of Happiness" is Trumpets’ big musical comeback – a high-flying musical adventure filled with spectacle, song, dance, colorful sets, costumes and a solid moral message. Join Mytyl and Tyltyl as they go through magical worlds and meet enchanted characters in their search for true happiness.


Room of Luxury
Isa sa mga pinakanagustuhan ko sa "Bluebird of Happiness" ay ang eksena kung saan nasa mundo sila ng Luxury, sinu nga ba ang di matutukso sa mga bagay na iyon, ika nga ng kanta na sayo na ang lahat perso syempre may mga bagay na di dapat abusuhin ika nga sa nila kung maaari iwasan ang 7 deadly sins iwasan mo, teka alam mo ba kung anu ang 7 deadly sins?

Fairy and the kids
At isa pa nagustuhan ko din sa show na ito dahil dito ipinamalas ng dalawang makapatid na si Mytyl at Tyltyl kung paano nila itinama ang mga mali nila simula sa simula at kung anu nga ba ang tunay na kasiyahan para sa kanila! At ang kasiyahan na iyon ay di nakikita sa labas o materyal na bagay kundi mismo sa sarili mong tahanan!!

Jojo Riguerra as Victor and Jayvhot Galang as Maxie
Can a 12 year-old young, gay lad who wishes he were a girl navigate the mean streets of Manila? And what happens when the boy falls in love with a handsome policeman who is investigating his family's criminal activities?  Will he still bear loyalty to his family?

You Turn: Juan Miguel B. Pagulayan

Sinu nga ba si Juan Miguel B. Pagulayan o mas kilala bilang JM Pagulayan?

Isa sa mga naging kaclose ko sa Ateneo De Lasalle University o mas kilala bilang ADLSU, si JM.

Si Jm ay isang magaling na graphic artist di naman makakakila yun dahil sa galing ng mga gawa niya, lalong-lalo na sa mundo ng Marvel character kaya naman madalas naming pag-usapan ang mga Marvels kung di naman minsan nagpapaturo ako sa kanya dahil isa sa mga pangarap ko ay maging isang graphic designer pero wala eh, epic fail pa rin haha..


Di ko nga akalain na magiging kaibigan ko siya dahil noong unang nag-usap kami nito ay magpagkasuplado pero noong nakilala ko na siya aba, sobrang kalog, parang batang makulit lang pero kung seryosong usapan na, di siya papatalo dahil isa siya sa mga taong kung mag-isip ay malalim nakikita naman yung sa mga ilan sa mga gawa niya mga arts.

Oh bago ko makalimutan parehas kami ng kaarawan nito at pareho kami ng tipo ng babae haha pero may kaunti nga lang na pagkakaiba katulad ng personalidad.

Oh siya baka kung saan pa mapunta ang usapan nating ito, tara natin kung sino nga ba si JM sa mundo ng grapic design.

Full Name and Alias: Juan Miguel B. Pagulayan "J.M."
Website/Blog: www.jmpagulayan.wix.com/portfolio
Twitter: n/a   
Location: Project 8, Q.C.
Age:
23
Education: AB - Multimedia Arts, De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde
Genre of your graphic illustration: Vector Illustration

Tell me something about yourself that people don't know:
My name is J.M. Pagulayan. Please just call me J.M. I really don't like hearing my whole name. Haha! Anyway, I'm a graphic artist and I like doing Vector illustrations. I also like to dance and sing but not professionally, of course. Don't expect me to be very good at it. Haha!

What is your current state of mind before we continue with the interview?
I just finished doing my "War Machine" vector and I need a break.

When and how did you get your start in the industry?
 I haven't really made a name for myself yet but if you must know, I really like doing Vector illustrations. I started as a graphic artist in a company that owns some franchises of fastfood restaurants such as Jollibee, Greenwich, Red Ribbon and Chowking. I was the only artist there so I was in charge of all graphic related materials. Now, I'm a project based graphic artist at LiFEDATA Systems Inc., wherein my colleagues and I make user interfaces of apps, websites and the like. I'm also a freelance artist at an event company.

Did you go to school to study this genre?

Yup! I'm an MMA student at De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde. I learned a lot about graphic design and how important it is to the corporate world.

How did you discover your passion for art?
Was it always something you knew you wanted to do? When I was in highschool, I was really into web development but when I got to college and learned how, it was really hard. Passion for art? I think it started when I was a kid, I watched lots of cartoons and read lots of comic books. I tried doing free hand drawing but I was never realy good at it. It was a good thing that photoshop and illustrator was invented. Thank God for technology, right? Haha!

How do you define graphic design?

Expressing emotions through art.

How did you find your style? Has it changed since you started?
When I was at the office, I was searching for some Star Wars artworks. Then I said to myself, "Hey, why not try vector illustration?" So I tried and I was successful. It was hard but very rewarding. I'm glad that I finished it and some of my friends liked it so, I made more.

What was your first ever illustration of, do you still have it, if not where is it?
I remember doing a comic book when I was in gradeschool. I don't remember where it is now.

Where do you get your ideas/inspiration from?
The internet, of course.

How did illustration/graphic design change your life?
Being an artist made me realize one thing: the world will always look down on you and it's up to you if you'd choose to accept it or fight for it.

The five exclusive artwork of Jm Pagulayan for AXL Powerhouse







What are the pros and cons of being a graphic illustrator?
Well, you can keep doing what you want. Make artworks using your own style, create awesome illustrations using your own concepts. The sad thing is, the company that you would be working for won't like or understand it. What can we say? They're the boss! We have to follow them.

If you weren't a graphic artist/illustrator or a multimedia artist, what would you want to be? Why? I want to be a Web Developer. It was my first dream job since highschool.

What legacy will you leave?
 I think it's a bit early to be thinking about that right now, don't you think? Haha!

How do you see yourself 20 or 30 yrs from now?
 Aside from wanting to be a Creative Director or an Art Director, I hope someday that I would have a company of my own. Probably a design agency or a production house.

Your #1 art tip or words of wisdom.
 Never stop doing what you love. Being an artist means making the world a better place. I mean, what would movies be like if it weren't for us? What would t.v. shows be like if it weren't for us? What would posters, billboards and magazines look like if it weren't for us? Some think that being an artist is a waste of time but then again, how would the world look like without us? There is a saying, "EARTH without ART is just EH." It's true, right?

Any final message? Its your time to shine..  We are artists! We are visionaries! This is how we contribute to the world. We make it better. We make it colorful. People will look down on us but if we stand up to what we believe in, no one can bring us down.

Hindi lamang sila para sa music fans na ka-age group ko kundi maging sa teens at in-betweens."
Dagdag pa niya, "Naka-espesyal sa akin nitong album na ito kasi pinagpaguran namin para siguradong sulit sa mga tao,sana tulad ko ay magustuhan siya ng lahat ng amin supporters."


Tampok sa solo debut album ni Richard Yap ang revivals ng "Don’t Know What To Do, Don’t Know What To Say" na personal choice niya, “Promise Ain’t Enough,” “Think I’m In Love Again,” “Can Find No Reason,” “You Take My Breath Away,” “Chasing Cars,” “High,” “Afterglow,” at ang “Oh Babe” na chinese version.
