Jericho RosalesJericho Rosales believes that if given enough funds, Filipinos can really make quality films that can compete with international movies. The Green Rose actor realized this when he did his first Hollywood movie, Subject: I Love You.

"I must admit kahit na third world country tayo, 'yung quality ng ginagawa natin, kung bibigyan tayo ng funds talaga, ano tayo e, world class," he says proudly when we got to chat with him at a Chowking event with Kim Chiu recently.

Echo is just one testament that Pinoys can level up with foreign actors, especially in Hollywood. "Well, tsamba lang 'yun," said Echo, who played the role of Victor, the lead character.

Know more about Echo's Hollywood movie and how it's like working with a Hollywood crew in the following Q&A.

How did you get the role?

"It was February 14 when I auditioned for the role and they were looking for, 'yun nga, kung sino ang gaganap ng part na 'yun, and I went there [on] Valentine's Day. Kabadong-kabado pa ako. So, nag-throw lines kami and then I got the part."

How was it working with other foreign artists?

"Iba lang talaga 'yung treatment pagdating sa mga artista. Kapag kasama mo 'yung mga taga-America, I have my own trailer, parang gano'n. And then, iba e, ibang klase. I work for 12 hours lang a day. Then, on the 13th hour, sinasabi nila, 'Sorry sir,' ganyan, ganyan, parang nag-e-extend na. Then, 'yung respect for the artists and staff, nandoon talaga."

Now that you've seen the difference between Hollywood and the local movie industry, what's your wish for our movie industry?

"Ako, malaki ang pangarap ko para sa industry natin, especially sa movie industry natin dito sa Pilipinas, because ang dami-daming magaling, sobra. Plus, with the technology now, kaya na nating gumawa ng pelikulang magaganda. So, I think what we need lang here para masuportahan 'yung industry natin is trust and paniniwala. 'Yun lang."
