Her name corresponds to the award-winning movies she produces hailed not just here in the country but in different film festivals abroad.
What is so amazing with this lady is that most of the opportunities that came her way were things she has no or little knowledge of.
“Aminado ako. I learned things the hard way, which most of you know. I was a bored housewife, bored in the sense na bahay at school lang ng mga bata ang ikot ng buhay ko. Until I was presented with the opportunity to sell.
“The opportunity to do or produce a movie was not in my agenda also. But because it was presented to a friend who I trust, and it was an award-winning director (Joel Lamangan) who pitched in some stories, sabi ko I can try.”
And 13 movies followed suit. The last one, “Balatkayo” will be having its premiere soon.
And why a magazine now? When everyone’s living their lives online. Where in every nook and cranny, news travels faster than lightning.
“Na-challenge ako. Kahit na wala naman akong knowledge to be a publisher, alam ko maaaral ko ‘yan kahit na anong busy ko pa. From what was presented to me, nakakita pa rin ako ng advocacy in it. Kung paano maipo-promote ang independent movie industry ng ating bansa. Umaapaw kasi tayo sa magagaling na direktor and production people. At syempre, ang hindi matatawarang kakayahan ng napakarami ring artistang naghihintay lang ng pagkakataon para maka-arte pa uli.
“BG Showbiz Plus Magazine will pave the way para kahit paano eh, mabawasan din ang kalungkutan ng ating mga kababayan by bringing them entertaining news and stories about showbiz, politics, business and lahat ng pwedeng mai-feature sa magazine.
“This will come out bi-monthly. Kaya, busog sila sa lahat ang istorya na hindi lang tungkol sa mga artista kundi sa mga nasa mundo ng sports, fashion, at marami pa. I have asked the services of an able editorial team headed by Maridol Bismark and Robert Requintina. And the maiden issue will be in July 2017.
“We have chosen to have Ms. Joyce Penas Pilarsky to grace the cover and our Best Actress for BG Productions International’s “Area” na si Ai Ai delas Alas para maging ka-back-to-back niya.”
Always a go-getter! That’s the stuff she’s made of!
