Aureaus and his team were shooting this film when I was in El Nido. Because El Nido is a small community, I know a lot of people who worked in this film. The production team themselves stayed at Makulay Lodge and Villas, some actors and mentors (like my friend Rej of Kontra Gapi who helped choreograph and teach the dance) were from Potter’s Place School, and so many more. I saw them around a lot. The crew was on Hama Street when I took the photo walk so I could not take photos of Asylum Bar and Marina Garden. We were also hanging out with them on this day, when they were still doing the ocular.

The scenes that appear in the trailer were shot in Vigan Island, more popularly known as Snake Island.

These were photos I took of the sand bar while I was on the island’s view deck back in 2007.

Baybayin – a Cinema One Originals film by Auraeus Solito

Baybayin, by Auraeus Solito, is the second installment of a trilogy that engages the indigenous Palawan culture and philosophy, the first one being Busong. Baybayin is the tale of two half sisters both in love with a man who is unable to hear or talk to them, proving that love can communicate even in silence. It is inspired by Palawan’s local legends and hopes to dramatize the Palawan script as well. The film stars the de Rossi sisters, Assunta and Alessandra.
