Kids will always be kids. It was a fun set visit of fellow bloggers at ABS-CBN's newest Primetime Bida Little Champ yesterday with Direk Richard Arellano, Renz Fernandez (Jason), JB Agustin Malatamban (Caloy), Sofia Millares (Lulubelle) and Alex Calleja (Sarge) with Chalk (the magical talking horse). Katya Santos (Maricel) was also there to welcome all of us.
The scene was set to be a music video shoot of Lulubelle, Caloy, Jason and Chalk with the rest of the crowd joining the song and dance. We were at awe at the kids Lulubelle and Caloy rehearsing repeatedly with Chalk (the horse) who seemed so tame and sweet. Finally the rest of the staff invited us to join in and it took so many takes for each line of the song to be perfect. I really admired Director Richard Arellano for the concept because I was surprised that the video was so beautifully and creatively made after. I have so much awe also at the dedication and commitment of the staff who'd sweat their heads off to get each second of the scene perfect. From the rehearsals to the actual shoot the little kids were amazingly amiable and dynamic despite the scorching heat of the sun.
Although we did not get to meet the rest of the cast, Sen. Lito Lapid (Amang Leon), Jhong Hilario (Lucas),Precious Lara Quigaman (Helen Caballero), Jake Roxas (Miguel Suarez), Mickey Ferriols (Xiu Xang), Paolo Serrano (Badong) and Coleen Garcia (Alice), we were happy to have witnessed a successful teleserye in the making. It was an inspiring day with the kids of Little Champ and I'm not going to be surprised that it will shoot the ratings anytime this week because of their hardwork.
