Indie filmmaker Jay Altarejos cooks up a new series
Independent filmmaker and queer cinema frontrunner Jay Altarejos is set to release a new series this August. Altarejos is known for his gay-themed movies “Ang Lihim Ni Antonio,” “Kasal,” “Pink Halo-Halo,” and “Tale Of The Lost Boys.” He recently launched an online channel 2076 Balangaw Online Channel that showcases his latest series “Balangaw” and other lockdown programs.
“Balangaw” was inspired by a true story, the recent ABS-CBN shutdown. Fortunately, the series has been receiving raves and good reviews from independent critics.
“That’s right, we’re creating a new series very soon. Habang binubuo ko ‘yung story, nag-iisip na rin kami kung sino ang kukuhaning artista,” Altarejos said.
He also added that health protocols will be followed as soon as shooting begins.
