Angelica Panganiban was at the right place at the right time when close friends John Prats and Sam Milby came up with the idea of starting a production company.

"Biglaan lang siya," the Playhouse actress told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during a recent one-on-one interview.

"Sila ni Sam yung talaga nag-start. Sinama lang ako dahil nga pagka nag-mi-meeting sila, para lang akong tanga dun sa gilid. Pinagti-tripan ko mga ideas nila, 'tapos ako lang nanggagago...

"'Tapos yung mga jokes ko, seryoso nila tini-take, so nagiging konsepto."

Angelica is the girl best friend of John, whose guy best friend is Sam.

She quipped, "Panggulo... Kung nakikita mo si Bayani [Agbayani] sa I Can See Your Voice, parang ako ganun. Ako yung baliw lang. Wala ako alam sa nangyayari."

But on a serious note, the ABS-CBN star added, "Creative side ako. Ako yung sa writing, conceptualizing.

"May mga writers kami hina-hire, may mga writers kami hinihiram. Meron kaming in house, pero minsan, siyempre, nagri-reach out kami sa mga experienced na talaga.

"Humihingi kami ng tulong para, in a way, nagkaka-idea kami kung paano ba. Hindi kami puro kapalpakan."

When it came to the money side of business, Angelica assured that she, John, and Sam do not have issues.

She said, "Maayos naman yung usapan, saka hindi naman malaki yung investment para magkasiraan kami ng friendship over money.

"Hindi naman siya isang building, hindi naman siya corporation na ABS-CBN. Kumbaga hindi naman mabigat ito.

"Pagka nagkalokohan e di nagkakatuwaan lang."

After a successful year in the industry, Bright Bulb Productions have extended its service from music videos and concerts to film production, social media campaigns, and prenuptial videos.

Angelica continued, "Steady... Siyempre, ano pa, nag-i-start pa lang kami. Marami pa kami matututunan and gustong-gusto pa namin matututo talaga."
