Artist rants about delayed compensation from Star Cinema’s ‘Block Z’

“Matapos rin yung ang halos isang buwan na pangungulit, nabayaran narin ako ng @StarCinema at Keep Filming para sa #BlockZ . Sana sa susunod di na mangyari ito (lol), also walang hiya ka Phyllis Grande, tang ina! Ginago mo kaming lahat hayop ka! Bayaran mo na yung iba!”

Calix Phil, an artist, went on Twitter to express dismay about his delayed compensation from Star Cinema.

Calix Phil’s song was used as part of the soundtrack for Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto’s Block Z film.

It’s been more than three weeks since Block Z was released in cinemas nationwide and Calix has not yet received his payment.

According to Calix, he tried to compromise with Star Cinema and offered the company a budget-friendly rate, but has remained unpaid to date.

“Mura na nga ng singil ko sa inyo, hindi niyo pa ako mabayaran. Putang ina. May mga gastusin akong kelangan bayaran, oh. #BlockZ Star Cinema.”

Calix tagged Star Cinema’s official account in his posts but there was no response from the company.

He also told the production company to share the blessings from the gross income and pay him to settle his accounts for electricity and water bills and for groceries.

The artist also claimed that before Block Z was released, there was a clear agreement between both parties.

Calix said that before Filipinos can look fo making quality films, production companies need to pay people properly first.

Calix even posted a screenshot of his online bank account with only Php17.87 in it and tagged Star Cinema, Keep Filming, and Phyllis Grande.

As of this writing, the gross income of Star Cinema’s Block Z is still unknown, but moviegoers are praising the quality and story of director Mikhail Red’s film.

Some of them are hoping that there would be a sequel.

After almost a month of ranting, Calix tweeted again and said, “Matapos rin yung ang halos isang buwan na pangungulit, nabayaran narin ako ng @StarCinema at Keep Filming para sa #BlockZ . Sana sa susunod di na mangyari ito (lol), also walang hiya ka Phyllis Grande, tang ina! Ginago mo kaming lahat hayop ka! Bayaran mo na yung iba!”
