Yesterday, September 17,2012, I was able to attend a premiere showing of the indie film “Potpot”, an indie film that tells the story of an ordinary boy’s life, his struggles and his triumphs, at the SM Manila - Cinema 8. Lucky to have my tito with me and the rest of his friends who are the organizers and producers of that outstanding film. Met many people and inspired how they work to bring back the spirit of the Filipino film industry.

(My tito Arnel with the two usherettes and Jak)
(Me with the bunch of friends, and actually all of them were already on tv shows, except for me. Haha, ayoko lang maging artista.)
(The boy next door, young producer, *geez* Marlon, ooops iba pala, may screen name kana pala. You have to wait on this guy. Clue: Francis M. story indie film? I dunno” Great work bro!)
(The folks with Julius Gareza and Lianne Valentin. Oh “goodness” super stunning young girl.)
(Oh sorry I forgot her name, pero she’s so beautiful and kilala naman siguro ng iba kung sino siya. Master Showman host)
(With madam Mystica, actually “mommy” ang tawag nila tito. Sabagay close kasi)
(The producers on interview. Thanks for their warm welcome to us and trusting the promotion of the film to other schools).
(So many familiar showbiz press and talent scouts plus celebrity)
Anyway I don’t have the picture of Mr. Herman Moreno “Kuya Germs”, nawala sa isip ko, ininvite ko kasi yung classmate ko from FEU kasama yung mga friends niyang magaganda, sayang naman kasi yung 6 tickets na nasa akin. Sulit naman. :)
By the way guys, as one of the co-promoter and co-organizer of this wonderful film, I’m inviting you also to have this being seen by you, especially the children. This movie tackles on the “Anti-bullying” issue and the responsibilities of every member of the family which is in particular not just on the poor communities but also on the lucky ones.
PS: *tengene* first time ko makaexperience at makakita ng baha ng ganoon ang itsura, haha, yun medyo na stranded kami sa SM Manila kagabi, pero buti naman at nakauwi rin kasi may klase rin ako ng 7:30am.
