On the Set of “The Echo”

Yeah I was bummed my girl Katharine McPhee didn’t get that role in “The Echo” — the Hollywood remake of Yam Laranas’ “Sigaw”. But I’m over it. Wahaha…! I’m glad at least, that she lost the part out to our homegirl Iza Calzado. Great actress very much deserving of that Hollywood break. She’s so much better than those movies they make her do here… *cough* “Ouija” *cough*.


So they’re currently shooting the movie in Toronto right now, and there’s an article on the Inquirer today about it. BTW, Yam Laranas is directing the Hollywood version as well. Pinoy pride! Woohoo… \m/ Here are interesting excerpts from that article by Mr. Ruben Nepales

“The first thing that Iza blurted out when we inquired how different it was to make a film here was, ‘Everyone has a copy of the script. And the script is so detailed; it even [indicates] the time when people are needed on the set. Everything is so organized.’ … (And) since there are people who take care of her costume, make-up, etcetera, the actress said, ‘I only need to bring myself.'”

“Another difference, she cited, was the work schedule of 12 hours each week day, with a one-hour lunch break. ‘Sagrado ‘yan,’ she said of the strictly observed hours. ‘And there are less people on the set…'”


To learn more about “The Echo”, check out Yam’s (close? haha) blog. All of the photos I used here are from there.
