'Last Supper No. 3' Highly Recommended


Guys, I highly recommend Last Supper No. 3, directed and co-written by my Bing Lao Scriptwriting Workshop classmate, Veronica "Ron/Roni" Velasco. You can still catch it at UP Cine Adarna on Aug. 4 at 7pm.

This is the best so far of the Cinemalaya 2009 films I've seen in UP. I also recommend 'Ang Nerseri."

Just finished watching ANC's Shop Talk hosted by Pia Hontiveros. The topic was Independent Filmmaking as a career and indie filmmakers Jim Libiran and JP Carpio were the guests. JP actually alerted me to the replay at midnight (Wednesday) -- I missed the Tuesday afternoon initial broadcast because I had to be somewhere.
