Inspired by real life
Updated: Dec 2, 2019
"The emotions, world and characters of "Tombstone Pillow" are inspired by real life. The Philippines is one of the countries in Asia with the greatest resources but unfortunately the greatest corruption and poverty. Casting Director Jam Vergara did a brilliant job casting the supporting roles. We called "ACTION" as Directors but long after "CUT" they kept going. This inspired long takes and let to the traditional idea of the "Extra" being tossed out the window. These actors ending up being just as central as the two main characters, Olivia and Maria-combined with a strong and visual setting of the cemetery which became the 3rd grouping of characters".
