I fell in love with Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli the first time I read it back when I was a teeny bopper. The narration and the plot drew me in, held me close and never let me go. We had a film festival last year and the thought of making a movie adaptation out of it came to my mind but alas those thoughts were pushed back to make way for an equally riveting screenplay by Juan Ekis entitled 20 Questions. But since then, I vowed to myself that when the occasion rises for another film to be made, I shall try my hardest to bring Stargirl to life from her pages.
Thus, what follows are vignettes of the entire production of our short film entry to this year's Cinemascian, TALA.

Click this link and like TALA's poster..if you want.....I mean no one's really forcing you....but it'd be nice if you did...cos it would really mean a lot.....so thank you....mwah..
I know some of you might be wondering or maybe have already come to the conclusion as to why I'm writing again after all this time. This may be a publicity stint to some or it may not be. But I just want to express everything in this post since my last post in the Roentgen Group was too scattered and too emotional hehehehe.
Thank you, Roentgen. I meant it back then and I still mean it when I say that I feel like we've won already with the support you guys are giving TALA. The entire experience of making a movie with you guys was a whirlwind of emotions and stress. I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to finish it or I'd somehow lose my mind trying but I did try and we did finish it and I think the fact that we did is something to be proud of already. TALA is our baby hehehe just like our Speech Choir performance and not to mention our unforgettable Carol Fest number hahahahahehehehe. There may have been times when we questioned why we were put in this section but I believe that things happen for a reason. WE happened for a reason and I can't be thankful enough hehe. Mwah mwah guys!!!
