On getting higher talent fee, John Arcilla says, "Sila po iyong nagbigay sa akin ng rate na ganun po, double, triple. Hindi po ako yun. Doon po nag-base po yung mga sumunod na projects."



Inamin ni John Arcilla na tumaas na ang talent fee niya matapos ang tagumpay ng kanyang award-winning at box-office hit movie na Heneral Luna.

Tinanong siya tungkol dito sa presscon ng bago niyang pelikula titled Birdshot.

Triple na ba ang talent fee niya ngayon?

“Depende po sa project.

“Well, I can say medyo double kaysa triple,” sabay tawa ni John.

“Although may mga projects po na ganun ang scale especially pag commercial or pag may budget din yung nag-i-invite.

“Medyo ganun po.

“Pero mas doon po sa lesser sa triple,” saad niya.

Bagama’t hindi sinabi ni John ang actual figures ng kaniyang talent fee, kaagad niyang nilinaw na hindi siya ang nagdikta ng pagtaas ng talent fee niya.

“Well, hindi ko naman po iyon inilagay.

“Sila po iyong… right after po ng Heneral Luna, ang dami ng invitations ko para sa speaking engagements.

“They invite me to speak about nationalism and love for our country,” kuwento ni John.

“Sila po iyong nagbigay sa akin ng rate na ganun po, double, triple.

“Hindi po ako yun.

“Doon po nag-base po yung mga sumunod na projects.”

Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at ng iba pang press people si John sa presscon ng Birdshot na ginanap sa Annabel’s restaurant sa Tomas Morato, Quezon City.

ANOTHER QUALITY ROLE. Proud si John na pagkatapos ng Heneral Luna ay muli siyang nakagawa ng isa na namang makabuluhan at internationally recognized film: ang Birdshot. Produced by TBA Studios (Tuko Film Productions, Buchi Boy Entertainment, & Artikulo Uno Productions) at PelikulaRed, it ay sa ilalim ng direksyon ni Mikhail Red.

Nagkaroon ng Philippine premiere ang Birdshot nang mapili ito bilang opening film sa 2017 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, kung saan ito pinalakpakan at binigyan ng standing ovation ng mga nanood.

Hindi raw ine-expect ni John ang magandang reception ng mga nanood sa Cinemalaya 2017.

“When we had it opened in CCP, yung dami ng audience na nanood, yung reception sa amin, yung kanilang appreciation, hindi ko ine-expect talaga,” pahayag ng veteran actor.

“I mean, paglabas namin, nandoon talaga lahat especially the millennials.

“Hindi ko akalain na ganun ang reaksyon nila habang nanonood, yung mga points kung kailan sila tatawa, kung kailan sila mag-ga-gasp.

“Sobrang nakakabilib.”

Bago pa ang Cinemalaya, nagkaroon na ng world debut ang Birdshot sa 29th Tokyo International Film Festival sa Japan, kung saan ito nanalo ng Best Picture sa Asian Future Film section. Nakalibot na rin ito sa iba’t ibang international film festivals sa South Korea, Lithuania, Laos, Sweden, Thailand, at Belgium.

Saad ni John, “I’m really very proud of this film kasi na-appreciate siya sa Scandinavian countries, sa Asian territories, sa American territories.

“So, I’m sure maa-appreciate din ng mga Pinoy ito.

“Subukan muna natin, lumabas tayo, panoorin natin.

“I-try muna natin, iyon ang palagi kong challenge sa Filipino audience, e.”

PROUDLY PINOY MADE. Natutuwa rin si John dahil mas maraming Pilipino na ang makakapanood ng Birdshot matapos itong mapabilang sa 12 na mga pelikulang kalahok sa Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino, na inorganisa ng Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) at mapapanood sa mga sinehan nationwide mula August 16-22.

Wika ni John, “Yes, definitely I’m happy.

“At saka ang Haribon kasi marami ang nagmamahal sa kanya.

Tungkol saan ba ang naturang pelikula?

“I think maraming makaka-appreciate na tungkol ang movie sa Philippine Eagle,” paliwanag ng actor.

“Hopefully, pag-open nito sa August 16, mas marami pang manood especially yung audience ng Heneral Luna sana i-follow niyo rin yung pelikula, panoorin niyo kasi hindi kayo talaga magsisisi.”

Kasama ni John sa pelikula sina Arnold Reyes, Ku Aquino, at ang baguhang si Mary Joy Apostol.

Ang Birdshot ay released in partnership with Globe Studios, ang nagmamarket ng nasabing pelikula.
