- How BG Productions Started the Year Right With Latay and Cross-dressing
Posted by : Pinoy Screen and Stage Tuesday, January 2, 2018
On New Year's day, people typically do fun things. They bask themselves in leisure. Some even wake up really late because of last night's trivialities. However, people from BG Productions International inject loads of fun in their work environment that's why it does not even matter if both members of the production crew and the producer herself, Ms. Baby Go, together with line producer Dennis Evangelista and press coordinator Pilar Mateo, had to wake up early to shoot a Ralston Jover film titled Latay about male domestic violence starring Allen Dizon. And, I repeat, this happened last January 1, New Year's day.
"Nag first day shooting ang LATAY sa Minalin, Pampanga kahapon unang araw ng Enero at isinabay ang ilang eksena sa " Aguman Sandok" festival. Ika 85th tradisyon na 'to sa nasabing lugar, kung saan nagdadamit babae ang mga brusko at macho bilang pagsasaya. Sabi-sabi dini discourage sumali dito ang mga bading.
Ayon sa kanilang kuwento, nag umpisa eto nun unang panahon kung saan nagkaroon ng tagtuyot sa nasabing lugar upang mapawi ang lungkot ay katuwaan na nagdamit at nag ayus ng babae ang mga bruskong kalalakihan. Isa ring pagpupugay sa mga kababaihan at sa mga may bahay nila ang okasyon, kaya pinapakita sa parada ang kagaya ng pagluluto ng may sandok pati na ang pag arte na kunwari ay nanganganak sila," said the Facebook post of Dizon's manager, Evangelista.
The film will definitely be released within the year and will be submitted to various film festivals. The Jover-Dizon is a winning tandem because their previous film, Bomba, produced by Dizon's ATD Entertainment, bagged the Special Jury prize from the A-list 33rd Warsaw International Film Festival.
A few days ago, BG Productions International took home two trophies from the Oscars of the Philippines, the 63rd FAMAS Awards. These were for the categories of Best Supporting Actor (Ricky Davao, Iadya Mo Kami), and Best Cinematography (Rain Yamson, Area). Ms. Baby Go was even surprised to be called up on stage to be one of the presentors.
A little bird told is that aside from Almost A Love Story, BG will be shooting at least 2 more films this year in various genre. Will there be any oeuvres from previous collaborators in multiple films like Joel Lamangan and Jason Paul Laxamana?
