Let Down

A constant practice for any corporation is an assessment of performance. In the entertainment industry, meetings are held after the showing of movies to discuss the plus and minuses. The obvious gauge of a movie’s success is the box-office return, as a movie is, after all, an investment.

When the creative team and the heads of an industry player came for a meeting, they were happy that a Production Talent (PT) was present. The goal of the meeting was to discuss the dismal performance of the project of PT, which was very disappointing for the management. The participants raised their observations over the outcome.

Someone pointed out that the timing of the opening was not well-thought out. Admittedly, the movie seemed to have a wrong playdate, as the screening was scheduled after the opening of a hit movie. The team underestimated the hit movie and realized they were very wrong. As the discussion continued, a staff could not longer contain the disappointment as well and said that PT was uncooperative in the promotions. Hearing that the point was being made about her, PT spoke up and defended herself. She cited that she did her best, but the rest of the cast comprised nobodies and her lead actor was not a box-office draw. Further, PT said that her next project should pair her with Box-Office Leads 1 and 2 (BL1 and BL2, respectively) or someone who can attract people to watch their movie.

At that point, the same staff asked if PT was informed that the idea of partnering with BL1 was already dismissed, as his loveteam partner would rather have peace of mind. Besides, BL1 might be too young for her. The same goes for BL2. Sensing the heat in the room, PT opted to walk out until things cooled down.

Meanwhile, the frustrations were high as the returns showed that the project of PT hardly hit the million mark. That earning would still be divided between the company and theatre owners. Worse, the cheap comedy film the company produced earned more than PT’s project.

‘The only way I know to get out of disappointment is to work hard, keep doing the right things, and don't make any rash decisions.’ - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

    2. Swerte pa nga sya kahit na one hit wonder meron pa din projects. Malas lang ng management nya at wala sila magagawa kahit lagi flop but to give her projects because of the contracf.

    3. Flopchina pa more! Ba't kasi binibigyan pa yan ng projects. Tamad na magpromote, di pa kumikita. Lakas siguro ng kapit...

    4. She has projects because she has a contract. That includes the movies she will make regardless if it's a flop.

    1. I think for big prod like that may big sponsors na din yan to carry the cost of producing it kaso ayon kung mababa income.. saktong sakto lang pambayad sa iba. Walang nagenerate talaga na income. Parang nagsayang lang pagod

      Delete
    2. So the management is also abunado ganun 207?

      Delete
    3. Definitely they get paid for making the movie. And they can demand for payment for their service.

      But the problem ang producer, di na mababawi ang puhunan sa kanila. That is why producers are very keen on choosing celebs with boxoffice succes. Otherwise, sumusugal na talaga sayo ang producer to get you. But what’s nice about this, mura pa ang tf nila since wala pang napapatunayan ung artist. So win-win to.

      In her case, she had a box office success. Kaya for sure mataas na tf nya. Pero wala naman nang hatak so lugi taaga si producer.

      May iba, instead na tf, co-producer na din. So lalaban talaga si artist to promote sa kahit san pa yan knowing the artist has invested in the project as well

      Delete
    4. Yes 1:55 paid pa rin sya ng TF nya for the movie. Sure na yan, magkakatalo na lang sa payment schedule. But for bigger productions (not sure sa smaller ones), nakakatanggap sila ng bonus if the movie is a box office hit. Kaya mabilis magdala ang producers pag flop, kasi malaki talaga nilalabas nilang pera. Paid placements meron namang naiaambag maski papaano but not big enough unless tipong sa produkto na nila umikot ang kwento.

      Delete
    5. Yes,abunado,lugi.Regardless kung may kita ang movie,kung ano yung napagkasunduan na talent fee ng artista,bayad sila.Yun nga lang pAg naghit,nasa producers kung magbibigay ng bonus๐Ÿ˜…

      Delete
    6. E kung laging lugi kahit sinong madadala g sumugal sa kanya idagdag pa yung mahirap siyang katrabaho dahil sobrang prima donna

      Delete
    7. but remember, pag sunod sunod ang flop mas bumababa din ang TF ng celebrity sa katagalan.

      Delete
  5. "The team underestimated the hit movie and realized they were very wrong." Oh wow. Ang baba naman ng tingin nila sa mga lead ng hit movie, tapos sobrang taas ng tingin nila kay PT. Gusto pa niya kunin sila BL1 and BL2 to redeem herself.

    1. The hit movie kasi was an experiment pero pumatok. Tska maganda din ang trailer at yung movie maganda ang market at marami nakaka relate as in marami all over the world.

    2. They did underestimate. Kc nga experiment eh may chemistry. Eh si PT baloon head oh ayan nganga ka ngaun

    3. 2:02 IKR! How could they have underestimated the leads of the hit movie??? Inuna ang yabang yan tuloy...

  6. PT - N
    B1 - D
    B2 - ??

    Although D is not that young naman compared to N diba? 1yr lang naman ata agwat so i'm not sure kung iba pa yung tinutukoy sa B1?

    1. Kung ikaw merong box office records or title, papayag ka ba na makasama si PT??? Careful sila sa mga upcoming projects nila lalo na kung nasa LT pa sila, kasi nga iniiwasan yung backlash ng mga fans. And always remember sa mga young stars ngayon “You’re Only As Good As Your Last Performance“ Kailangan yung movie na gagawin nila is carefully planned gaya ng ginawa nung HIT MOVIE.

      Delete
    2. Pwede naman si D halos sing age lang sila. Or baka iba yan? Di kaya si J? Lol.

      Delete
    3. 2:25 laki ata ng hinanakit mo sa lead ng HIT MOVIE? sabi nga jan oh in underestimate nila since experimental lang pero ayon pumatok so sorry nalang sayo

      Delete
    4. Baka sa itsura baks, she looks so much older, yung expression niya kasi sa mukha di nag-iiba.

      Delete
    5. Kahit 1 year older lang si PT kay B1 parang malaki kasi agwat kung mukha pag uusapan. Lol. Pero kalorks si PT ha gusto pa talaga manggamit para lang makatikim ng blockbuster. So inaamin nya nga na kung sya lang waley talaga. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Gusto pa mandamay ng pagiging jinx.

      Delete
  7. Diba before the “hit” movie pinalabas yung movie ni PT??? If this is who we think this is...sometimes hindi talaga box office hit lahat ng artista eh. Anong magagawa natin?

  10. Haha! Ano bang film company yan. Nagtaka pa kumita comedy?? Eh mga iho ha, sa Ph kumikita lang nowadays are typical love stories or comedy. Eh etong company mahina din kasi s marketing, ang layo nila sobra compared sa rival film management. Kaya sila madalas patok.

  12. Haha meaning mas may kita pa si Gamol and the gang hehe

  13. Not N because she's actually the only one who promoted her movie. She went to multiple mall shows and tv guestings.

  14. Clue naman kay B1 at B2

    1. B1-D
      B2-J (i think sya kasi younger daw kay PT, eh diba magka age si E and N, so not E)

  15. matutong lumingon sa pinag galingan ... halos lahat ng artista magaling lang pag nag uumpisa pag na hit na ng isang movie feeling superstar na, tandaan humility is one of the staying power in showbiz,

    ReplyDelete
  16. Fan of hers pero to be honest the movie’s premise is ‘meh’ - feel mo na agad na predictable, parang mababaw yung story and parang it’s something you’ve seen before. Kaya kahit fan ako parang hindi ako naengganyo, siguro partly dahil hindi naman lahat bet ang ganung genre ng movie.

    ReplyDelete
  17. ako I liked PT's other projects pero dito pass talaga ako kasi the project was not good. The concept was meh. Walang chemistry ang bida. Boring ng trailer. All the critics gave negative review sa project. OOverall an experiment with negative results.

    Sana naman next big film ng company, maginvest sila sa promotion kasi yung bida this time very cooperative naman. Titipirin na naman nila sa tv ads at mall tours.

  19. hindi pipiliin ni BL1 makipartner sayo PT. wala ka namang box office draws eh. ngayon pa ba, na kailangan nyang sabayan jowa nya sa takilya.

  20. Kaloka si gurl may attitude na demanding pa,sigurado hindi papayag kampo ni D o ni E aside from nega sya flop queen pa and hindi rin sila bagay ni D mukha silang mag-ate kay E naman pwede na pero yun na nga hindi papayag yung kampo

    ReplyDelete
  21. this is no other than N.
    Twice na yata nag flop at pi-pili2x pa sya ng leading man.. baka ayaw lang talaga sa kanya ng karamihan..o walang chemistry..
    Kahit namn "nobodies" yung kasama nya sa movie, if maganda talaga yung movie / may originality, at na-promote ng maayos, hahatak pa rin ng maraming audience.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Kahit sino ipartner jan flop pa din hahaha. Sya ang reason ayaw lang aminin ng fans. Maninisi pa ng iba

    ReplyDelete
  23. natawa na lang ako sa underestimated movie, hello K at A lang naman yung inunderestimate ng team niyo. Oh di kayo napahiya. haha

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wala siyang hatak ganoin kaya gusto nya yung sikat ang ipartner sa kanya

    ReplyDelete
  25. Eto problema pag hype lang ang popularity. It doesn't translate sa box office. The big difference pag ang fans mo hanggang social media lang. Ang isang tao pwede magmaitain ng 100 accounts or more. Pero pag dating sa box office, isa pa din ang bilang ni troll kaya ayan.

    ReplyDelete
  26. PT - N
    BL1 - D
    BL2 - J
    All kaf

  27. Not a PT fan, but it is true that her production company cast her in back to back experimental movies with inferior co-stars. The company's gamble obviously didn't pay off so the box office failure of these films shouldn't all be blamed on PT.

    The aforementioned hit movie that preceded her last film's release was only experimental as far as the teamup was concerned. But it still was a romantic drama, a genre which the other production company had already mastered no matter how many variations they tossed in. And the male lead just happened to be the hottest young male actor of the other network.
