WARNING: THIS POST IS LONG AND NOT EVEN FUNNY. YEAH, IT HAS PHOTOS, TOO SOOO… It’s pretty much the explanation of why I was on hiatus the past 2 months.
I just came out of a war and it was called Bagong Liwanag.
Sigh. It’s over. Finally. For 2 months, my life was Rivermaya. Actually, until now, it hasn’t quite settled on me yet that the final credits have rolled already. Seems it was just like yesterday when we were having a meeting at the office about the title of the show (which eventually became the title of their EP) and how each episode would go. And I clearly remember locking myself up in my room and crying my eyes out because I didn’t want to take the project- it was too much pressure, I thought.
As you probably know, I ended up directing it and I’m sure I would’ve regretted it big time if I chickened out at the beginning. I mean, all the shoots were fun, starting from the auditions at UP to the eliminations at Mag:Net to the finals at Music Museum (if anyone back in college told me that I’d be directing a historic event IMO with some of the country’s top musical acts at my age, I would’ve laughed at them)!!!
