Angelica Panganiban explains how movie piracy affects the film industry
070616-angelica_main.jpgAfter learning that the film The Achy Breaky Hearts has been circulating online illegally, Antoinette Jadaone, who is the director of the film, and everyone behind the production, aired their disappointment sentiments about film piracy online. 

Actress Angelica Panganiban also voiced out her dismay on her Instagram account.

She posted the official statement of Star Cinema regarding the said issue and had a long message in her caption, which explains how piracy affects their work.

Alam po ba ninyo kung gaano kahirap gumawa ng isang kwento? Isang pelikula? Isang eksena at isang shot? Kung anong kailangan namin gawin, isipin, isakripisyo para lang makaarte kami ng tama? Para may mapanood kayong makabuluhan, may aral. Yumbang may sense,” she wrote.

She also shared the sacrifices they have to make in able to produce a good movie.

“Alam nyo po ba kung ilang oras lang ang tulog namin kapag gumagawa kami ng pelikula? Alam nyo bang kadalasan hindi namin nakakasama pamilya namin dahil may tinatapos kaming playdate? Napaka hirap po ng trabaho namin,” she continued.

Angelica has already worked with Antoinette in the movie That Thing Called Tadhana and says she is also affected by the issue because her film has also been a victim of movie piracy.

“Hindi ho namin sinisira ang kabuhayan ninyong mga nanonood ng pirata. Pero bakit kayo? Tinatanggalan ninyo kami ng kabuhayan? 

“Yes. Affected ako. Dahil biktima na ko ng piracy. At affected ako dahil pangalawang beses na tong nangyayari sa kaibigan kong direktor na walang sawang nagbibigay sa inyo ng pelikulang nagpapasaya, nagpapaiyak at nagtuturo sa inyo kung pano magmahal. “

In the end she advised her followers to stop consuming pirated content online.

“Tigilan niyo na ang piracy. Wala kayong pera, pero may pang bayad kayo ng wifi at pang bili ng computer? EhDiWow!!”
