#Y Gala night

So I went to the Gala night of #Y. I’ve watched the film for the second time. And I just can’t help but be proud of Elmo. I’ve been a fan of Elmo since when he officially entered showbiz, in his almost 4 years of being an artist, I’ve seen a lot of improvements from him; from his voice, his moves and his acting. I’ve seen him act on his Maynila episodes, pilyang kerubin, bantatay, his musical act called “A wazak love story”, his comedy sitcoms: Kaya ng powers and Tweets for my sweet, Tween Academy, Just One Summer, Together Forever, Villa Quintana and on his first indie film which is #Y.

He is really accelerating in his acting skills! I loved how he interpreted a teen guy who’s like confused of living in this world. He has a good life, good family, nice friends but everything seems to be worthless for him and wanted to end his life.

My fave part of the movie is his make out scene with Lia (Sophie Albert) which is mejo bitin coz he only showed more of his back (hahaha charot!)

Pero seriously my fave part is his 2nd phone convo with Abby (Chynna Ortaleza) when he’s going hysterical and wanting to kill himself again. Wala lang I just find his acting very real and emotional I was mejo teary eyed coz he made me feel I was in his situation through his acting though I haven’t felt that way pa naman.
I wish he’ll have more indie films..
So here’s some of the photos I took from the Gala last night:

So here, before the screening, they introduced the Team #Y: director, writer, editor, cast etc. Gino gave a short speech..and he’s sooo cute, young and fresh haha


Here’s Elmo signing stuff for his fans


And here’s Direk Gino!!! He’s super cute! I was in the middle of the crowd when someone touched my back and when I saw it’s him, I immediately approached him, took a pic together and congratulate him.

My first time to watch a Cinemalaya entry..

I’ve been wanting to watch a Cinemalaya films since last 2 years but didn’t had the chance, too bad I heard there were a lot of good films then.

#Y chronicles the adventures of the members of a generation made universal by the realms of social media, the internet, sex, drugs, and alcohol, and the occasional YOLO.

Starring: Elmo Magalona as Miles, Coleen Garcia as Janna, Sophie Albert as Lia, Kit Thompson as Ping, Slater Young as Mark and Chynna Ortaleza as Abby.

CinamalayaX is from August 1-10.
