At 42 minutes, Three Days is a not so short film that my friends Maya Salas, Jonas Diego, Johnny Danganan, and dog Boney helped me make during periods when I wasn\’t working on my comics stuff. Thanks guys! I shot it over the past couple of months, doing a few minutes here and there.
Ok, it didn\’t work as an April Fool\’s gag, but I guess I knew it would be pretty obvious. I did plan it well in advance, even disappearing from my usual online haunts for a couple of weeks before April 1 just to help sell the gag. Even though I knew everyone would get it right away (you guys expect me to do something foolish this time of year after all), it was nevertheless a really fun thing to do.

THREE DAYS Short Film
Directed by Gerry Alanguilan
with Malaya Salas, Jonas Diego, Johnny Danganan and Boney
At first I didn\’t realize I was doing it, but then it occurred to me that I was actually doing a rather loose film adaptation of my own comic book story \”ATAKE!\”, which came out in Sindak! Horror-Thriller Magazine, published by ABS-CBN Publishing in 2008.
I\’ll be selling DVDs of this at Summer Komikon, which would include a few additional features like interviews with Maya, Jonas and Johnny, outtakes and bloopers.
That said, Happy Birthday to my mother in law, as well as Gilbert Monsanto!
