Before they started shooting “Carpool”, they all took an acting workshop which made them more comfortable in each other’s company. 

“Mahirap ang shoot kasi maraming twists and turns sa story,” says Elora. “We all have to experience primal fear kasi malalagay ang buhay naming lahat sa panganib. We guarantee that you will be watching at the edge of your seats kasi marami talagang scary scenes from beginning to end ng story.”
