Hey, Red Turnip Theater's #TribePH opens THIS FRIDAY August 5, 9pm! Directed by Topper Fabregas and starring the biggest ensemble to date!

What I love about Red Turnip is that they continue to push the boundaries of the straight play in this country, and now here's a story that involves sign language and deafness in a conventionally dialogue-heavy medium.

The Gala night comes with FREE FLOWING COCKTAILS! Tickets are PhP1,800 and P1,200 OR you can buy a Season Pass which will give you 25% OFF!!! See you there! (I'll be the merry drunk proud sister in the back of the room.)

TRIBES (a play by Nina Raine) - Red Turnip Theater

We are so excited to share Jason McLagan's newest work to date -- a trailer using a new stop-motion technique called "strata-stencil" -- for Red Turnip Theater's play, TRIBES, directed by Topper Fabregas, which you can catch starting August 5th!!

For this trailer, Jason animated the lead actors' hands (Kalil Almonte and Angela Padilla) performing sign language by using pixilation, and we printed this hand choreography on over 700 pieces of paper, which were carefully cut out by our amazing crew. Jason then animated this paper with 15,000 movements in a 15-hour shoot day.

I highly recommend you guys watch this trailer in HD and streaming on wifi.
There are absolutely NO EFFECTS on this, and NO CG.

I'd like to thank the hardworking crew who helped cut each page and assisted Jason during the 15-hour shoot. Many thanks as well to Pong Ignacio, who designed the lighting, Teresa Barrozo, who composed the score, and Jenny Jamora + Mariko Yasuda who always made sure we had everything we needed.

This is an Indie Pop Films production, in cooperation with Red Turnip Theater.

The Story Of Ang Nawawala

If you like Ang Nawawala (What Isn't There), then you should read Homegrown | Cultivating Success's feature about our entire journey -- from Marie Jamora's initial seed idea in college; to finding the crew, actors, and money; to recording and releasing the soundtrack; the editing and ADR process; the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival experience; the nationwide and international release; the artistic collaborations; and everything in-between.

A few months ago, writer Selena Salang spent an entire evening interviewing Marie and co-writer Ramon De Veyra and they talked her through the entire process. The research she put into her article is all worth it.

This is a MUST-READ!

Indie films stake Philippine cinema claim

Today, the BBC ran an article about the state of independent cinema in the Philippines and Marie Jamora was interviewed about her experience with Ang Nawawala (What Isn't There), along with ClickTheCity.com film critic Philbert Dy, writer Jessica Zafra, and filmmaker Pepe Diokno.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24427927

This is great timing because of the upcoming London screening of What Isn't There for the SEA ArtsFest this Oct 27!

A shift is starting to take place in Philippine cinema, as independent films made without studio backing begin to stake more of a claim, says the BBC's Amee Enriquez.

Kaarawan (Birthday)

It has been one year since we have lost the great Direk Marilou Diaz-Abaya. Marie Jamora was fortunate enough to be one of her 12 students in 2000, and this was the short film she made in Direk's class.

Being a student film shot on the short-lived format, Hi-8, it looks and sounds very early-2000s, but Marie still loves this short because of Direk Marilou's inspiration and mentoring for it.

Ciudad - There's A Lonely Road To Sunday Night

Hello boys and girls! In honor of yesterday's Ciudad's 10 year anniversary of the "Is That Ciudad? Yes, Son It's Me" album, here's a little Sunday music for y'all.

Director Ramon De Veyra shot this video during the last week of filming Ang Nawawala (What Isn't There). He would grab the actors in-between takes and use the cameras that were already set up, oftentimes with the 1st and 2nd unit cinematographers of the film. It was a logistical nightmare, but it was all worth it.

(P.S. We hope you're not feeling lonely.)

This is Marie Jamora's review and thoughts about Red Turnip Theater's CLOSER:

I was so happy when I saw the opening night of CLOSER. Not only have I been a fan of the film, I love the brutal honesty of the material.

I thought the performances from the 4 leads were amazing, and director Ana Abad Santos really helped them bring out the emotion and the truth from the text. If you have ever been in love and in fights, you will FEEL IT here. Seeing Marc Abaya and Angel Aquino's theatrical debuts is a BONUS. Bart Guingona made me laugh the most, and a computer chat scene with him and Marc is one of the show's most chemistry-charged scenes. And for you men out there, Angel is radiant in every angle and in every emotion, AND Cris Villonco's stripper scene is worth the admission ticket, I promise.

I am SO PROUD of my sister Jenny Jamora, who created a theater company with her closest friends, so they can do straight plays that showcase the actor's craft. And last night's gala was the realization of her two dreams that came true: her company and their maiden production.
