ang maskot goes to cinemanila!

i had the best, most amazing day of my life as a cartoonist yesterday: watching a bunch of wonderfully talented, extremely hardworking people turn a comic i drew into a movie.


that is to say, yesterday was day one of shooting for "ang maskot," a short film being produced for competition in this year's cinemanila film festival. chris costello (of the much-missed sputnik comics) and mihk vergara are directing. i've been sworn to secrecy about many things, but i can tell you they've put together an ace production crew, a stellar cast, found some really great locations to match the scenes in the comic, and commissioned an actual jholeebird jingle that will make your ears bleed.

i was graciously allowed to hang around the set, get in the way of the production staff, etc. and ogle the people while they were working. naturally my camera  chose that day to conk out, the pictures it took going from this:


to this:



to this.


and that's jholeebird in that last photo too, sitting down on the left part of the image.

indie film-making being what it is, the producers are set to launch a kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to actually finish the film, so expect me to be begging for contributions (and chipping in!) in the near future.
