When you start to make a documentary where do you find everyone you need? Do you use all the experts that are available, (historians, professors, book authors), or the people who experienced it.
For this documentary, it's been a pleasure to talk to people, from my grandmother to the handyman at Agbayani Village. But the tricky part is organizing all of this work. Thank god for Lisa Whitmer, our co-producer. Without her enthuasiam, we'd never get all the research and pre-interviews done. She's tirelessly and enthusiastically into the project. Even when I don't feel as energized by it.
