Wish Ko Lang

Wish Ko Lang

Both Jay and I would agree that the studio is our happy place. And for good and practical reason. We're both such control freaks that we would rather simulate the look of a golden sunset or an overcast day with artificial lighting in the convenience of an indoor space with AC, rather than out there with all the heat and smog. (We're brats that way). And sometimes we just can't refuse the call of the great outdoors - and also because, our clients insist and we excitedly oblige and take on the challenge! For this particular shoot with GMA, I…

Cain At Abel

Cain At Abel

I've worked with both Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo a number of times all on separate occasions in the past. Cain At Abel brings these two GMA stalwarts together in one exciting, action-packed production that tells of two brothers separated at childhood and then joined together years after in cruel twists of fate. Both men are considered showbiz royalty and yet manage to remain grounded and humble having come a long way in their respective careers. I've worked with all kinds of actors in the industry and the most rewarding to collaborate with are the ones with a deep respect…

The One That Got Away

I won't deny it! I love working with pretty faces and pretty things! There's no judgement here! I'm not trying to launch a debate about what society has ingrained in our perception of beauty yada-yada. It's just human nature to always seek out the best! I'm lucky enough to work with three of the prettiest in the biz - not to mention talented and influential too! Here are some publicity photos of Rhian Ramos, Lovi Poe and Max Collins for GMA Network's 'The One That Got Away'. Production Credits Client: GMA Network Photography: Paulo Navarra

GMA Netwrork: Amazing Earth

Shooting outdoors can be quite a rewarding thrill - if you prepare that is! Whether it's just a park a few blocks away from your home or an exotic destination overseas, you can spare yourself from a lot of headache and stress if you can find out about the weather of your destination way beforehand. Having this kind of information will prepare for the necessary protection from the elements you must have not just for yourself but for the kind of gear you'll be needing and protecting as well. And whenever possible, do an ocular before the actual shoot and…

Super Ma’am

Super Ma’am

Always a fun time shooting with Marian. This was the campaign for her comeback on GMA's primetime. Teacher by day, superhero by after class? Of course, when you talk about superheroes, that's one of our studio's strengths. Plus, she has cosplayed several times before, and not to mention her run on Darna. So the superhero stint is nothing new for this Kapuso superstar. Production Credits Client: GMA Network Photography: Jay Tablante / Paulo Navarra

Destined To Be Yours

Destined To Be Yours

Paulo: I remember I was actually already in the studio, lights setup and ready to shoot and still I didn't know who my talents were until the very last minute. All the confidentiality finally made sense to me when both talents were revealed as they walked to their markers ready for their closeups. Meticulous crowd control is a necessity not just for Alden and Maine but for everyone's physical security as well as all hell will surely break lose as the Aldub phenomenon is sure to draw throngs and throngs of die hard fans wherever they go.  The pressure on…

Mulawin vs. Ravena

Mulawin vs. Ravena

GMA come up with the sequel to one of their early fantaserye hits, Mulawin. This follows the next chapter of characters from the original arc while introducing new ones along the way. It was fun shooting them since we all had flight elements going on and guys like Dennis Trillo can certainly hold some hang time while jumping.
