New Director Frank Lloyd Mamaril All Set To Make His First Full Length Movie In 2018 For His Own Company, Film Creatives Inc.

DIRECTOR FRANK LLOYD MAMARIL is best known as a concert director. His Lani Misalucha “Love Concert” won as the best concert of the year from the PMPC Star Awards for Music last year. He has also directed concerts of Regine Velasquez, Martin Nievera, Julie Anne San Joe, Morisette and the 2013 Miss World Pageant.

A UST masscomm graduate, he rose up the ranks at ABS-CBN as a production assistant, reseacher until he started directing life style shows about fashion like, MetroWear Series and Jewelmer’s Dress Mapping. He did quality videos for ABS-CBN Publishing and eventually put up his own company, FLM Creatives Inc. that makes videos for TV, events and new media.

He trained his own team of people to create the brand he has in mind. His passion for video and TV production brought him to Italy and Belgium to produce a TV special and also helped him create a credible name in the industry, earning the trust of clients and making their company’s portfolio grow profitably.

When his company started, he said he will never go into making his own movies, but it was Boss Vic del Rosario who advised him: “Hindi ka talaga makikilala unless gumawa ka ng pelikula.”

So now, he intends to go into film production this 2018 to make him a true Multi-Media Director. He already has the script for a rom-com about a love story that is affected by social media and technology, something very now and very millennial. We tell him it will be an uphill battle for him since the big stars are with the top networks and he also doesn’t have yet the machinery to produce, market, distribute and promote an entire movie.

He says he is aware of that, so here’s wishing him the best of luck as he embark on a new aspect of his career as a movie producer and director for next year. To help young people, he teaches filmmaking at College of St. Benilde and Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela. “I want to train students and young people on how to appreciate film and later help in making them,” he says.
