GMA-7 recently launched their landmark production of “Lupang Hinirang“, the Philippine National Anthem which currently signs in and signs off their daily broadcast. This will also be officially used in all SM Cinemas nationwide.
The video highlights the different historical points in the country’s history that led to where we are right now. It assembles the biggest and the brightest talents of GMA-7 portraying roles such as Lapu-Lapu (Aljur Abrenica), Gregorio del Pilar (Dingdong Dantes), Manuel L. Quezon (Richard Guetierrez), Emilio Aguinaldo (Dennis Trillo), Andres Bonifacio (Mark Anthony Fernandez), Dr. Jose Rizal (Marvin Agustin), People Power nun (Marian Rivera), Gomburza (Paolo Paraiso, Victor Aliwalas & Bodie Cruz), the women who created the first Philippine flag (Iza Calzado, Rhian Ramos & Bea Benene), Filipino-American War heroes (TJ Trinidad, JC Tiuseco, Dion Ignacio & Enzo Pineda) and many more!
“Lupang Hinirang,” which runs for two and a half minutes, is directed by Paul Ticzon, who says it took his team 10 months of meticulous research and preparation to shoot the vignettes.
Personally, I feel proud(er) of being a Filipino everytime I watch the same.
Excellent job, Kapuso network!
By the way, today is a non-working holiday throughout the Philippines due to the end of Ramadan. Another long weekend ahead! Enjoy! ;-)
