Hollywood actors amazed at Pinoy "Baryo set" skills
Manila (23 March) -- Hollywood actors Garret Dillahunt, James Parks and Chris Cooper were all thumbs up when they visited the set of Baryo, by an American independent Filmmaker.
Unlike Cooper, who has been with indie film maker John Sayles, Parks and Cooper could not help but be bowled over by the set dome by Filipino team of production designer Rodell Cruz, a national daily reported.
Baryo, a turn of the century village nestled between the ricefields and rain forests in Busao Maribojoc and facilitated by Film Development Council of the Philippines.
Both actors also agree that the set, which the Filipino crew created helps actors by making their performance more organic and more authentic. (PIA) [top]
