Tapos na tapos na ang principal photography ng “Prey”, ang latest film project ng internationally acclaimed Filipino filmmaker na si Brillante Mendoza.  Kinunan ito sa apat na lugar:  Batangas, Quezon, Rizal sa South at (Subic) Zambales sa North.

Ang “Prey” ay tumatalakay sa mga hostage-taking incidents ng mga local at foreign tourists ng Abu Sayyaf. Pinaka-peg ng kuwento ang madramang nangyari sa Dos Palmas Resort sa Palawan mga ilang taon na ang nakakaraan.  The script is written by Boots Agbayani Pastor based on various researches, interviews.  Mismong si Direk Brillante Mendoza ay nagpunta sa Mindanao para magsaliksik!

The cast of “Prey” is an assemblage of top actors from the movies, television and theater.  Headlining the cast is French acting icon Isabelle Huppert who was twice proclaimed Cannes Filmfest Best Actress for her performances in “Violette” (1978) and “The Piano Teacher” (2001). She is considered “France’s counterpart of America’s Meryl Streep” in terms of acting capacity and various roles played onscreen.

Kasama rin sa cast ng “Prey” sina Maria Isabel Lopez, Sid Lucero,Raymond Bagatsing, Chanel Latorre, Ronnie Lazaro, Neil Ryan Sese,Kristoffer King, Mercedes Cabral, Bernard Palanca, Mon Confiado, Tado, Raymund Nullan, Angel Aquino, Perry Dizon, Rustica Carpio, Allan Paule at iba pa.

Malamang na isasali ang “Prey” sa 2011 Cannes Film Festival sa Cannes, France in May 2011.

Bukod sa singing ay binabalikan din ng singer-actor na si Ernie Garcia ang pag-arte.

Kasama si Ernie sa cast ng teleserye na “My Lover, My Wife” ng GMA-7 playing the role of Maxene Magalona’s loving and supportive father.

Ang iba pang artistang nasa cast ng “My Lover, My Wife” ay sina Luis Alandy, Marco Alcaraz at Nadine Samonte.  Sa direksyon ni Jay Altarejos.

Last month ay lumabas naman si Ernie sa isang episode ng dramatization of real stories on “Face To Face” ng TV5.

Babalikan din ni Ernie ang recording.  Upon the advice of stage director Freddie Santos (dati niyang kasamahan sa Repertory Philippines), magre-record siya ng mga kantang Tagalog na katipo ng mga kanta ni Tom Jones.  Kasalukuyan siyang nakikipag-usap sa mga composers para magpagawa ng mga kantang ganito.

Bago pa sila nagkakilala ni Ernie Garcia, dati na palang nagpo-produce si Dr. Rey Carpio ng mga beauty pageants.  Siya ang producer ng “Queen of the East” at “Philippine Super Model” contests some years ago.

Si Dr.Carpio ang producer ng pre-Valentine concert ni Ernie sa Eastwood Richmonde Hotel grand ballroom sa Libis, Quezon City, last February 12.  Pinamagatang “Ernie Garcia…Loving You”, ito’y nagtampok din kay Mark Anthony Carpio as special guest performer.

Presidente si Dr. Carpio ng Grand Monaco Estate Developers, Inc. na may 12 locations including Antipolo, Caloocan, Marikina, Novaliches, Paranaque, Pasay, Pasig, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig and Taytay.

GMEDI maintains a pool of accredited brokers backed up by promotional strategies of putting up sales exhibits at the malls, billboards at strategic locations, saturation within the 4.6 radius of the project sites, leafleting, mobile ads and open house activities.

Grand Monaco housing projects have been selling like hot cakes.  Gross sales for 2010 reached P600-million (up from only P5-million in 2003) and tripled 2009’s performance.
