    Anne Curtis looks sweet, innocent in 3rd upcoming film

    ABS-CBN News

    Posted at May 09 2018 08:39 PM

    2018 is shaping up to be a banner year for Anne Curtis in terms of her film output, with not one but three in various stages of production, including a just-unveiled one under director Yam Laranas.

    On Instagram, the 33-year-old actress shared a photo of a clapperboard of the project, with the working title "Aurora." The post's location tag revealed the particular scene was being shot in Batanes.

    Curtis's management, Viva Artists Agency, similarly shared a snap from the set, this one showing the actress in a simple white dress. She is shown posing with actor Marco Gumabao, presumably her leading man in the film.

    The filming of "Aurora" comes just after the announcement of the release date of another Curtis-starrer, Irene Villamor's "Sid and Aya: Not a Love Story," which will hit cinemas May 30.

    "BuyBust," the Erik Matti-directed action film also starring Curtis, is also set for a tentative release in international cinemas, under distributor Well Go USA, later this year.

    Kapamilya actress Anne Curtis is up for another movie under the direction of critically-acclaimed director Yam Laranas.

    She gave everyone a sneak peak into her new project via an Instagram post on Monday. With very limited details given, the film is set in the majestic, picturesque island of Batanes.

    Taking from her post, it looks like the movie is titled “Aurora.”

    The movie is produced by Viva Films.

    Curtis also has an upcoming movie with Kapuso actor and former “T.G.I.S” batchmate Dingdong Dantes called “Sid & Aya”.

    She has nailed yet another achievement this time in the field of sports when she recently completed her first ever London Marathon.

    Among Laranas’ movies were “The Echo”, “Patient X” and “The Road.”       /muf

    Anne Curtis flew to Batanes earlier this week to film her latest movie, which is directed by critically acclaimed director Yam Laranas. Not much is known about the movie as of yet, with Curtis only sharing a picture of a clapperboard last May 6, with the caption, “Day. AURORA,” and tagging director Laranas in the process.

    However, it seems Curtis has been smitten with the virginal and picturesque Batanes, sharing numerous photos of its sights with her 8 million followers on her Instagram. In one picture, Curtis posed by the Basco Lighthouse, writing, “Batanes, it’s only day 1 but I love you so much already. #ANNEventuresBatanes #AURORA.”

    📽: Day 1. AURORA. 🌊 @yamlaranas

    A post shared by Anne Curtis(@annecurtissmith) on May 6, 2018 at 6:02pm PDT

    Curtis also shared a picture of the beach, showing a gorgeous view of skies on the cusp of sunset. “The Philippines is definitely up on top of my list for one of the most magical skies on earth.”

    She, too, shared a tip to her followers about dipping one’s toes in the ocean, a tip that, she says, she got from her mother.

    “Good Morning!! My mama always told me that the best time to dip your toes in the ocean is in the early hours of the morning. It’s good daw for the body! The fresh air at dawn is always just so refreshing!”

    And being the fitness junkie that she is—having just completed the London Marathon last month — Curtis made sure she got her running fix while in Batanes. On May 9, she shared a picture of her atop its rolling hills, wearing only a black sports bra and blue running shorts.

    “When you have a late call time and a gorgeous location… You take advantage of it,” gushed Curtis. “Stunning 8km run this morning. #rollinghills.”

    Batanes sure is a feast for the eyes.  /ra

    Anne Curtis does own underwater scenes for MMFF 2018 entry Aurora

    by Interview by Jocelyn Dimaculangan / Text by Celine Trinidad posted on November 15, 2018

       

    Anne Curtis had to be underwater from 30 seconds to 1 minute while shooting scenes for her MMFF 2018 entry Aurora.


    Anne Curtis’s director in her upcoming movie, Aurora, revealed that the actress refused to have a double in filming her underwater scenes.

    “Ang kagandahan kay Miss Anne Curtis ay wala siyang takot,” filmmaker Yam Laranas told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in a recent interview.

    “Ako ang natatakot para sa kanya,” he added, chuckling. “Meron sigurong double, stand-in lang. Pero si Anne, ayaw magpa-double.”

    Anne has underwater scenes because the movie’s story takes place in an island where the passenger ship named Aurora crashes into rocky coasts.

    Her character, Leana, is a young innkeeper who helps recover the bodies of the missing passengers for a promised reward.

    Aurora, a co-venture of Aliud Entertainment and Viva Films chosen as an official entry to the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), was filmed on location in Batanes.

    Direk Yam, who co-wrote the script with his wife Gin de Mesa, said that Anne had to be underwater from 30 seconds to one minute to shoot her scenes.

    “Pero meron naman kaming abang na diver,” he pointed out. “Ang nakakatawa pa do’n is ako ang pumipigil sa kanya.

    “Sabi niya sa ’kin, ‘Direk, how come hindi ako sa water sa Batanes?’ Sabi ko, ‘Hoy, hanggang dito ka lang sa sand. Don’t worry, palalanguyin kita pero sa swimming pool…

    “Pero may mga scenes din siya sa Batanes [na open water]. Pero typically, you know, pag kaya ni Anne, gagawin niya lahat.”

    Aside from Anne’s tenacity and fearlessness, Direk Yam is awed by the discipline and commitment shown by the actress, who also co-hosts the noontime program, It’s Showtime.

    He recalled telling his star that she would have 12 to 15 shooting days in Batanes, so she talked to people at It’s Showtime to allow her to work on the movie.

    At work, he described her as “walang arte sa set.”

    Direk Yam loved working with Anne so much that he wished he could have her in every movie that he’d make hence.

    The director is famous for having his hit horror-drama flick, Sigaw (2004), turned into a Hollywood movie, titled The Echo (2008), with him also at the helm.

    Sigaw starred Richard Gutierrez, Angel Locsin, and Iza Calzado. Iza reprised her role in The Echo, acting alongside a foreign cast led by American actor Jesse Bradford, whose filmography includes Presumed Innocent, Bring It On, and Swimfan.

    Direk Yam also directed the crime-horror The Road (2011), featuring then newbie Alden Richards, and the mystery-thriller Abomination (2018), which was part of Sinag Maynila Film Festival last March.

    “Hindi ko naman sinasabing gagawa ako forever ng horror,” he said. “In fact, for a lack of a better category, yes, horror ang Aurora. But when you see it, yes, it’s also a thriller. Pero pag nakita mo, napaka-dramatic naman ng movie.”

    He proudly described Aurora as a big-scale production with an “epic feel” to it. He added that they began filming in June and wrapped up after 25 days, so he had enough time for post-production work.

    “We’re fine-tuning kasi maraming special effects,” he said. “Special effects for the sake of telling the story. Hindi siya yung supernatural, alam mo yung fantastic. We have to put a big ship in the rocks of Batanes.”

    He added that the musical scoring, with an orchestra playing, was done in Sweden.

    “Maganda natapos kami maaga,” he said. “Maraming time to hopefully perfect it. At least, malinis na malinis siya na lumabas.”

    Following the MMFF annual tradition, Aurora opens on December 25, Christmas Day, along with the other seven entries: Fantastica; Jack Em Popoy: The PulisCredibles; Mary, Marry Me; One Great Love; The Girl in the Orange Dress; Rainbow Sunset; and Otlum.
