And to think that it’s near impossible for a good script to get funded outside festivals. In the case of festivals, you’re up against the country’s best so it’s even harder. In the event you get through, you’ll probably spend money out of your own pocket instead of earning it.

That's why you can't blame producers to stick with "formula"plots and very seldom dare to produce real quality films with great plots. I'm sure there are lots of great directors and writers out there but talents are put into waste Bec the people prefer "formula" films.

sad as it may seem, the producers of these flicks only manifests the viewing public’s choice in what to patronize/pay for. it is similar to how the citizens pick the quick fix versus a long term solution. tawa over aral na mapupulot sa movie. #temporaryrelief

It is a sad fact. Commercislism rears its ugly head during this time of the year (annually) when we are all served local movies for a week.
