  • MAKING EASTER SUNDAY - This film has been a passion project for Jo Koy, and it’s been quite a journey to see it all the way from ideation to production.
  • FAMILY MATTERS - If there’s one take-away from the film, it’s that family is the most important thing. In this fun piece meant to get to know our cast and some of our key crew, we talk to them about the roles they play, how similar they are to their real selves and their own family members, as well as ask them questions about their own family to try and get to know our cast a little better.
  • A DAY IN THE LIFE... - What does a day in the life of our talent look like, told from their own POV? Using footage shot by our talent themselves on iPhones handed out to them during production, they give us personal, in-depth looks into their days and what it’s like to be on set filming a movie like Easter Sunday.
  • TAGLISH - In this short piece, we have Jo and some of our Filipino talent give us a brief description of what Taglish (a hybrid between English and Tagalog) is and let us know some of their favorite words or phrases.
