Folks who know that he is good friends with Gretchen Barretto thought she co-produced the movie with him. “Hindi po, hindi siya kasosyo rito. Solo production ko po ito sa sariling company ko, Frontrow Entertainment. Prayers lang po ang kontribusyon niya sa movie. Nag-visita iglesia siya to pray for the film’s success kasi first production ko ito and first lead role din.”
This is not the first time he produced a movie. “Tumulong din ako sa ‘Bwaya’ ng late Direk Francis Pasion at ‘Kasal’ ni Direk Jay Altarejos na Cinemalaya entries and in ‘Lorna’ ni Direk Sigrid Bernardo for Cinema One Originals, all in 2014. Pero ngayon pa lang ako nag-produce ng solo. Wala pa kong kinita sa movies that I produced but I get my own personal fulfillment kasi passion ko talaga ito.”
“Bhoy Intsik” is now showing in selected theaters as part of the little known and barely promoted SinagMaynila Filmfest.
