In an exclusive virtual interview with “Caught in the Act” writer and director Perry Escaño, he revealed that he is one filmmaker who believes that the Filipino talent in film production is world-class given the right budget and equipment.
“This film (Caught in the Act) shows how gifted Filipinos are when it comes to high technology development and production. The video promotes positive Filipino characteristics such as perseverance in the face of adversity, hard effort, responsibility, and optimism in reaching one’s life goals,” Perry said.
Perry added that the film tackles how gadgets and the faster way of life affect one’s personality and way of thinking, especially the present generation.
“Most Filipinos nowadays – particularly the millennial age – are active on social media, and everyone is aware that apps offer a faster and easier way to interact and communicate. These Apps serve as social companions in today’s world. They play a crucial role in our daily lives, particularly in emergency situations such as those depicted in this video,” the director said.
The movie also offers an interesting soundtrack and three original theme songs of “Caught In The Act” – “Sabihin Ko Na Ba?” (performed by Bamboo B.); “Huwag Muna Ngayon”(Jhassy Busran) and “Nariyan Ka Lang Pala” (Andi Abaya). The songs are composed by Alvin Barcelona.
