For someone who just enjoys filmmaking, Enrico Po never expected that his film “Out of Body” would make it as a finalist in the 17th Edition of Cinemalaya Film Festival.
“Yes, I was completely stunned because I submitted it towards the end of the submission period and I had a lot going on at that time.”
Enrico Po graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts yet more than his finished degree, he thinks that this does not make him different from others who pursue what they love.
“It’s good but I'm gonna say straight up [that] you do not need to go to film school to pursue filmmaking. If you wanna make films, it starts tomorrow. Grab a camera and shoot whatever. It doesn't matter if you shoot anything. It's all the same, so just go out there and make it. It's the same decision you're making. The same muscles you’re working and the same skills.”
His honesty towards how the filmmaking industry works was manifested in his entry because he clearly knows how important it is to speak about what he believes.
