My GMA News TV Interview

Just finished an interview with GMA News TV. A segment on a show "Good News with Vicky Morales". It's about the good news that graphic novels are now flourishing in the country. Together with me that had been interviewed separately is Budjette Tan (Trese) and Paolo Fabregas (Filipino Heroes League). It will be shown this coming Sunday - Dec. 11,2011 at 8PM.

Minutes before the interview.

Showing the pages of my comics to the camera while I was talking and answering questions to the segment producer Maxie which I was very much surprised to know that she lives only on North Olympus village which is very near from our subdivision.

They asked me to do an on the spot sketches for them which I am very much happy to do. :-)

About at the end of the interview, they transformed our living room into an instant studio which they took a beautiful black back draft shot at all of my comics, the 3 graphic novel of Trese, FHL and my Kalayaan Vol.1. I was also very happy that they took interest on the Kalayaan action figure created by Randy Albert.

I really hope that this part will be shown on TV. I know that Randy Albert (the one who made the action figure) will be very happy. :-)

These are the 3 books that will be featured in "The Good News with Vicky Morales". The camera crew did a back draft of these but I forgot to take pictures with my own digital cam. So I just took this picture with out the black back draft.

Thanks to Maxie (Segment Producer), Alvin (Cameraman) and Richard (Assistant Cameraman) for everything. Sa uulitin po sana guys. :-)

Looks like the decision to self-publish your graphic novel is paying off really, really early :)

Hope you get more success and more interviews in the near future, Gio! This makes me proud to be a Kalayaan fan :)
