3. Short Film

Writing a novel is hard enough. Adapting it into film is an entirely different monster. To me, at least. The process, for me, was complicated. That’s why I said “no” when I was offered the job of writing the first draft. I told the prince point-blank from the start that I'm not a script guy.
My script experience is: totally fuck-all. I wrote for a children's TV show a while ago and that was it.

2. Shit happens

I met Khavn through a mutual friend – a UP professor. A meeting was arranged.
 He was already a respected filmmaker that time and was looking for a nice project to invest some of his resources in. Born into a rich family, national bourgeoisie by class, Ateneo-educated, at the top of his game, chicks left and right … Khavn was a fucking prince.

1. The Vicious Cycle of Regret and Respect

Looking back at the first book, of how it came to be, of how the stars were aligned at the time of writing, I am always torn between two conflicting feelings: regret and respect. Good times mean it’s split, as in 50/50 between the two. The two must never outpace each other. Otherwise, I get to that bad place.
Bad shit is never good.
