Got to watch TIKTIK: THE ASWANG CHRONICLES last Monday, and I am proud to share with all of you that it is the very first Filipino film produced in a green screen entirely. The movie which ran in a budget of roughly 80 million pesos, is a good showcase of Filipino talent and that the Philippine cinema need not be behind the big Hollywood companies who does digital cinema. One thing I like about it is the character design which really is an evidence if painstaking plannimg and revision until they have come up with an impeccable roster (lol, pun. You’ll find out why if you’ll watch) of digitally made CGI characters.
One setback though is that I find the story a little undeveloped, but not entirely. The plot is good and very Filipino I just wished it could have been more… developed. The pacing is a little awkward at times though, but I thik this one is a trend among digital films here in the Philippines.
It’s a long way to go, but hey, it’s a good thimg we can expect more beautiful Filipino digital films made in the future. Kudos to Direk Erik Matti and his team, and thanks Origin 8 Media for inviting me :)
