Blockbuster film director Cathy Garcia-Molina has flown to Thailand as her team enters the post-production phase of the upcoming Kathryn Bernardo-Alden Richards film "Hello, Love, Goodbye.”
In an exclusive interview today, June 19, the director gladly revealed that they’ve already completed principal photography — done largely in Hong Kong — for the film way ahead of its deadline.
"Matagal na. First time! First time sa buong buhay ko ng paggawa ng pelikula na natapos ako more than a month before the showing, almost two months before the showing. It will give way to proper post-production time," she said.
Direk Cathy publicly extended her thanks to the Thai sound recordist and boom operator who aided the production crew of “Hello, Love Goodbye”, and admitted that she will be taking the time to learn new techniques that will enrich the Philippine film industry during her time in Thailand.
She said, “Knowing that this group is good, so kilala sila na pinupuntahan ng kahit ibang nationality so [we tried to work with them]. Una, afford natin, pangalawa, mas malapit, pangatlo, they are really good at what they do. So, we are here to learn and hopefully to improve and share it to the rest of the Philippine movie making. Sana maka-level talaga tayo doon."
Of course, Direk Cathy also put a spotlight on all the positive feedback the film’s teaser has been receiving since its release last week.
She imparted, “Sobrang thankful, siyempre! ‘Yung conceptualization pa lang nito, iniisip na agad natin na irespeto ng mga fandoms, alam naman natin na ang lakas ng KathNiel, ang lakas ng AlDub, iba pa ‘yung sari-sarili nila, so magkakaroon ng mixed reactions.”
"Hello, Love, Goodbye," will also star Maymay Entrata, Joross Gamboa, Kakai Bautista, and Lovely Abella. It will hit theaters nationwide on July 31!
