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.
