IAN IGNACIO TAKES THE LEAD IN Maria Urduja Osit Li’s ‘CORDILLERA SA DULO NG PANAHON’!


ianignacioaliwanave2
So I raved about an upcoming actor’s performance in Joem Bascon’s action-launch film ‘ BAGONG DUGO’ a few whiles ago.  Tracked his FaceBook account ; clicked on the ‘friend request’ button and since he remembered me singling him out during the premiere presscon, he accepted. Since then, I have been updated with the person and the actor whose earthname is IAN IGNACIO.  While I was unbelieving that he was a newbie, I particularly noted on the nuance he provided the scenes he was in. Call it gut feel but Ian is such a natural, he perfectly sank into the character that even his look became it.  Am I rambling now? Well , less that I be patronizingly redundant … guess it is enough that he is such a welcome addition to our local roster of actors in the industry.
He currently is smarting up for what could be a dream role : that of an Igorot warrior set in the darker ages of Spanish colonialization.  His LAO-ANG character in  Maria Urduja Osit Li’s ‘CORDILLERA SA DULO NG PANAHON’ naturally will have him conquer the setting’s chilly environs in a g-string.  Asked if he sank into some personal reservation, he chides : ” I did personal research on the Igorot tribes and some for their cultural customs. Physically I’m staying in shape to be in a bahag for a long time. Hahaha”  Now that is something to watch out for!  Visit or subscribe to ALIWAN AVENUE for IAN IGNACIO updates just about anytime!

Matti & Poe : When Everything Turns To Black and White

Now being referred to as local filmdom’s L’enfant terrible , Erik Matti comes into terms with a system that has been plaguing his industry for the longest time.  In his recent FB status, he clearly and unabashedly expresses his thoughts on actress LOVI POE and calls her a ‘starlet’.  AA is taking the liberty of reposting it here since Direk Erik’s FB wall is on public mode.   ERIK MATTI WRITES : I’ve always thought highly of actors, stars and celebrities being intelligent enough to make the right choices for the roles they want to play on films. I have been disappointed several times in the past but I am always hopeful that maybe next time actors will make the right one.   Continue reading

Jojo De Vera is a U.S.-based Filipino film enthusiast, blogger, video archivist… among other cinematic gigs but is a true-blue fully-beaded NORA AUNOR believer, their friendship spans for the longest time!

I believe movies are the central art of our time. They bring music, writing, acting and photography together in a feast for the eyes, the intellect and the emotions. Naturally, I get disappointed sometimes, but going on these make believe journeys usually make my endorphins kick into high gear. Movies are probably the most influential medium in our world.
