HUBO Productions signed up its most recent collaboration deal via an agreement to support the production of Origin8 Media’s Slumber Party. HUBO Financial Director and Board Member Ida Ceniza-Tiongson was on hand to seal this deal with Slumber Party director Emmanuel Dela Cruz representing Origin8 Media. Slumber Party received a production grant from Cinema One Originals and is an official selection of the festival to be held this November.

Slumber Party is set on the eve of August 23, 2010, the night when a bus carrying Chinese nationals from Hong Kong are held hostage in Manila, Philippines while Philippine representative Maria Venus Raj is under pressure in the Miss Universe pageant to bring home the coveted crown. Three long time friends throw a sleep over party and do a vigil to once again show their support for the country’s delegate to the most prestigious beauty pageant.  Nursing a broken heart from a failed romance, Phillippe is joined by Elle and Jhana to carry him through that night. On what was planned as a light and fun night took a twisted turn when a young frat-boy broke into the house where they were staying.  Questions about life, love and friendship arose within the course of the night.

HUBO Productions commits to support Solito Arts’ Baybayin

HUBO Productions has entered an agreement to support the production of Solito Arts’ Baybayin, an official selection of the upcoming Cinema One Originals slated to be held on November 2012.

Baybayin, by Auraeus Solito, is the second installment of a trilogy that engages the indigenous Palawan culture and philosophy, the first one being Busong. Baybayin is the tale of two half sisters both in love with a man who is unable to hear or talk to them, proving that love can communicate even in silence. It is inspired by Palawan’s local legends and hopes to dramatize the Palawan script as well. The film stars the de Rossi sisters, Assunta and Alessandra.

HUBO Board Member Ida Ceniza-Tiongson was instrumental in this new collaboration.  Solito, on signing up HUBO’s support for his latest film project remarked,  “The meeting with Ida was serendipitous in a way.  I felt that HUBO is a group of people that respects artistic integrity of filmmakers.”  Further he acknowledges that HUBO has produced progressive and meaningful films before.
