Event: #Ekstra Grand Press Conference with #StarForAllSeasons #VilmaSantos Direk #JeffreyJeturian and the cast
We all dreamt of being an actress once in our lives. We all wanted to play a role even as a bit player (Ekstra) when given an opportunity. The Star For All Seasons, Batangas Governor Vilma Santos, the most respected all-time Hall of Famer as Best Actress will play the Bit-Player (Ekstra). From Quantum Films co-produced and distributed by Star Cinema and directed by Jeffrey Jeturian, Cinemalaya's Audience Choice Award, Jury Prize (NetPac), Best Screenplay (Zig Dulay, Antoinette Jadaone and Direk Jeffrey), Best Supporting Actress (Ruby Ruiz) and Best Actress (Vilma Santos) independent film Ekstra will be shown on cinemas nationwide on Aug. 14, 2013.
The Star For All Seasons stressed the importance of bit players in Philippine cinema today at the Grand Press Conference of Ekstra at Dolphy Theater. Gov. Vilma Santos noted some of the most important bit players in her movies that made her films pop and flop during her time. She narrated some of the instances where the bit players were monumental in making every scene perfect and related to the progress to becoming a big star. All these remarks reminded me of how some of the Hollywood actors were also once bit players trying at all auditions before they've become noticed and blossomed as a star. I've become interested since the biggest star Gov. Vilma Santos mentioned that they shot the film only for 12 days and have appreciated the film since reading the script from Day One. Also starring in Ekstra are Ruby Ruiz (Best Supporting Actess Cinemalaya 2013), Tart Carlos of "Be Careful With My Heart", Cherie Gil, Pilar Pilapil, Nico Antonio, Tom Rodriguez, Direk Marlon Rivera, Vince De Jesus and many more. Featured in Ekstra is the special participation of Richard "Ser Chief" Yap, Marian Rivera and Piolo Pascual. Let's all watch how the biggest star become a bit player and learn how passion can lead to stardom at Ekstra showing at all cinemas on August 14, 2013.
