Blogger’s Night for Movie THELMA. Premieres September 7

It was a very intimate Bloggers Night for all of us with the rest of cast of THELMA starring Maja Salvador, Tetchie Agbayani, John Arcilla, Eliza Pineda, Jason Abalos with direk Paul Soriano happened last night August 31, 2011 at UP Techno Hub. Despite the heavy rain I was happy to see all the casts with the rest of the blogger and media friends come together to make the event possible.

The event started with the cast greeting everyone and then followed by Q and A including Direk Paul Soriano. I started the Q&A with Direk Paul asking how it differs with the usual Music Video and TV Commercials hes doing. His discipline in advertising helped him a lot and he explained a lot of effort to make the film a beautiful one was contributed during the shoot.

Direk Paul Soriano is very accomodating during that night and I can say that he is very positive that the movie will do good in the box office. The movie was also invited to a certain festival in Hawaii and he is looking forward to bring the film outside the country.

Maja Salvador on the other hand happily answered YES when I asked her if she is expecting a Best Actress Award should she be nominated to any award giving body. Ms. Tetchie Agbayani also shared that she is very proud of Direk Paul with his impressive technical know how and his preparedness on every shooting days. John Arcilla also commented that Direk Paul is one of the humble and hard working director he worked with. Eliza Pineda who played Maja’s sister also arrived and greeted and invited everyone to support the film. The entire team belives that INSPIRING movies uplift the spirit. They affect us, move us, coax us and often times coach us.

“Thelma” is one inspiring movie played by Maja Salvador, one of the country’s most talented young actresses. Maja is the production’s first choice to play the lead as they felt that the physicality and character suited her best. With this, Maja couldn’t help but elated. “Madami na akong naging offers in the past to do an indie movie but itong project na ito ang pinakanagustuhan ko. Nakaka-inspire s’ya talaga. It’s a story of a triumph of the human spirit!”

These all the more made the film’s director, Paul Soriano, very proud of Maja. As Direk Paul puts it, “Maja shed blood, sweat and tears to portray Thelma.” The production couldn’t be any happier that Maja wasn’t just the correct choice, she was the perfect choice! Driven, motivated, passionate, talented, very much like the screen role she portrays.

“Thelma” also stars Tetchie Agbayani, John Arcilla, Eliza Pineda, Jason Abalos, Sue Prado and with the special participation of Philippine Track and Field champion Elma Muros, who plays Thelma’s running coach.

Presented by Time Horizon Pictures in cooperation with Abracadabra Productions and Underground Logic, “Thelma” is distributed by Star Cinema. The movie opens on September 7.
