Behind The Scenes: Descendants of the Sun

Behind The Scenes: Descendants of the Sun

What happens when we can't have the photo shoot on location? We bring the location to the studio! When you're at the mercy of inclement weather and there are deadlines to beat, the job of a production designer/art department becomes all the more crucial. For GMA Network's version of the koreanovela Descendants of the Sun, an army camp and barracks had to be painstakingly recreated inside a small space for the pictorial. I have to admit that our PD did quite a very awesomely meticulous job with the details and textures we worked with on that day. I think that…

I remember, already quite a long time ago, those days that we would beg a visiting relative from the US to hand carry at least a dozen of these original sugar glazed babies on their plane ride to Manila.

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…
