“Just One Summer” Set Visit in Subic

Last Wednesday, me, with other bloggers went to the picturesque Kamana Sanctuary Resort & Spa in Subic to visit Julie Anne San Jose & Elmo Magalona on their last taping day of “Just One Summer.” With a movie tagline that says, “A Season Can Change Your Life Forever,” this movie is a story two people finding each other and finding their own selves in one summer :)

The movie is topbilled by one of most popular loveteam in Philippine TV, Julie Anne San Jose & Elmo Magalona, fondly called by their fans as “JuliElmo.” Main cast includes Joel Torre, Alice Dixon, Cherry Pie Picache, Buboy Garovillo and Gloria Romero. Also included in the movie are Benedict Campos, Ken Chan, Lexi Fernandez, Steven Silva, Betong, Mae, Sef Cadayona, Sheena Halili and we've also seen Mon Confiado in the set.

We arrived around 1PM and the 'stars' are currently having their lunch. When I announced this on my Twitter account, a lot of JuliElmo fans retweeted it, and I got a lot of mentions and follow. In just a span of one hours, I was notified by Tweetcaster for Android (the one that I'm using on my Samsung Galaxy Note) that I have 96 mentions?! wow.

Now I know why Julielmo fans are called 'Adiks' :-) I happily reply to them one by one but I can't cope up with them :-P They will retweet your reply even your answer is just one word, or just a smiley. Cute! :) Julie Anne & Elmo is really lucky to have this dedicated fans and now, I will not be surprised if I saw another Julielmo-related Trending Topics on Twitter again. That day they managed to trend four #Julielmo-related topics including, #Subic where they shoot the movie. Beat that! :)

I first heard about Julie Anne when she sang the theme song of one of Marian Rivera TV series, and I heard she's from a singing contest too. And Elmo? he's the first person that comes to my mind when I hear the song, Teach Me How to Dougie :)

After their lunch they sat on our table and had a short interview with our group. We asked what happen on the helicopter scene but unfortunately that didn't push thru because of the bad weather. I also managed to ask a question to Elmo from a Twitter follower, on what is JAPS' gift to him, he said it's a orange necklace.

having a break while the rain pours. also seen here is "jessica sandwich" (wearing checkered) who performs sing & dance number to the delight of many haha.

While we are there, they're taping for the beach front scene where the two is HHWW (holding hands while walking) hahaha :) and another scene that involves a car. You can have hint on some scene by looking at photos below.

The weather that day is bipolar. Unpredictable at its finest! Its raining so hard and after a few minutes the sun will come out, and then repeat.

*sorry for the quality of photos :) I forgot to bring my DSLR that day!

 posing for our camera before they goes back taping again.

Julie Anne is making a 'video greetings' to a friend of another blogger.

I posted another version of this pic on my Twitter and got a lot of retweets! :) 
They're cute no?

Direk Mac giving some instructions to the two. He's nice naman pala :) I'm thinking he's grumpy and would occasionally screams at his staffs. :) JOKE :)

Elmo is reading out loud his script while a make-up artist 'retouches' his face. 
Julie Anne candidly smile for my phone :)

“Just One Summer” SYNOPSIS

Daniel Cuaresma, Jr (played by Elmo Magalona) is a rich boy fresh from highschool. Dahil only son ng isang doktorang may-ari ng isang ospital sa Maynila, pangarap din niyang maging doktor. And he is close to reaching this dream, dahil natanggap siya sa isang med school abroad for college. Handa na ang lahat—his passport, visa, pati tutuluyan sa states. Isa na lang ang problema—ang parental consent. Wala pa kasing pirma ang daddy niya. His dad has only one condition for Daniel before he signs – he wants his son to spend summer with him. Simple lang kung tutuusin. But not for Daniel. He hates his dad. He has hated him eversince he left their family and went back to the province to take care of his farm. Kaya naman spending time with his dad, during his last summer in the country, is the last thing on his mind. Pero wala siyang magawa. Kailangan niya ang pirma ng ama.

Si Beto (played by Julie Anne San Jose) naman, ang probinsyanang kababata ni Nyel, ay magka-college na rin. Unlike Nyel, her family doesn’t have all the finances dahil hindi naman sila mayaman. Kaya naman tuwang-tuwa ang tatay niyang si Berting nang malamang magiging scholar ito sa college, dahil makakabawas ng malaki sa gastusin. Ang problema—hindi talaga natanggap sa scholarship si Beto. At hindi niya alam kung paano sasabihin sa ama, kaya naman maghahanap siya ng paraan para makapag-ipon ng pang-tuition on her own. Dahil dito, lalapit siya kay Sir Dan, Sr, para bigyan siya ng trabaho sa farm. Kahit anong trabaho, willing siya, dahil laki naman siya sa farm.

With everything that’s going on, will this summer still have a happy ending? This is the story of… a wounded, teenage boy forced to spend time with the father he so hates…A father who wants to reconnect with a son who has shut him out of his life… And a clueless, provincial lass who will make it all a bit easier simply by being inlove and by being loved by the boy… Three changed lives…in just one summer.

 “Just One Summer,” 
premieres on August 15! :)
