No excuses if you can’t make it.

Director RA Rivera and co-writer/actor Ramon Bautista are at it again! Here is part 1 of Tales from the Friend Zone, episode X (TFTFZx), where What Isn’t There (Ang Nawawala) makes a cameo!

Once again, the subtitles are HILARIOUS, Dix Buhay’s cinematography is fantastic, Sharon See’s production design is superb, and the music is predominantly What Isn’t There scorers Mikey Amistoso and Diego Mapa (AKA Eggboy)!

Thanks to Spot.PH for naming Marie Jamora as one of the 10 Must-Watch Women Directors in the Philippines!

It is a great honor to be on a list with such amazing filmmakers such as Direks Marilou Diaz-Abaya, Laurice Guillen, Joyce Bernal, Hannah Espia, Cathy Garcia-Molina, and more!

The gorgeous Enid (Annicka Dolonius), photobombed by award-winning composer/musician, Mikey Amistoso. The lovely Promise (Sabrina Man) who is more Our amazing make-up team, who are beautiful ladies themselves, Pia Reyes and Kay Arias. Myrene Academia and Raimund Marasigan, who cameo in the film as Sandwich. (Raimund double cameos, also in Pedicab.) Buddy and Earnest Zabala. We can hear Buddy's indirect cameo in the soundtrack with Eraserheads' The handsome men behind-the-scenes: Edsel Abesames (Co-Editor) and Earl Ignacio (2nd Assistant Director). Although Dominic Roco looks at ease, it appears that Marie Jamora is puzzled during a TV interview. Co-Writer Ramon De Veyra (and photographer of this entire photoset) and Annicka are nervous before the screening. After the screening, co-Producer Daphne Chiu is sandwiched between the Roco Twins, Dominic and Felix (respectively).

What Isn’t There is going to UCLA! We’re screening in Dr. Jasmine Trice’s class in the James Bridges Theater, March 4 at 2:00pm! UCLA, Los Angeles.

In honor of this occasion, I have unearthed co-writer Ramon De Veyra’s never-before-seen photos from our Cinemalaya Gala Night screening! Enjoy!

If you like Ang Nawawala, then you should read Homegrown | Cultivating Success’s feature about the film’s 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 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!
