ABS-CBN Studio Tour and Opening of Showtime Season 4
Budget : none
Duration : ~6 hours
Bummers : the long wait but it is worth it!!!
This is your show, this is our time! Its… Showtime!!!
I had the privilege to tour around ABS-CBN and witness the opening of Showtime Season 4 live. Yay!!! It was my first time to go to ABS-CBN and see what’s inside it. We were a bit late that is why we only arrived for only half the tour. We missed seeing the studios where ASAP and Umagang Kay Ganda are shot. However, we had the opportunity to see the studio where TV Patrol and Bandila are held. We also got to see the booth of DZMM.
This is the ABS-CBN Newscenter. This is where TV Patrol and Bandila are done live. The newscenter is only small and as explained by the tour guide, they only use wide-angle cameras to add an appearance of wide space when you see it on TV. Since the space is widened, so are the people who are captured using these cameras. That is why when you see TV personalities in real life, they are a lot thinner. The wide-angle cameras add about 10 kilos to a person whose video is being captured.
We just walked by the booth and through the hallway of ABS-CBN. Then, we were already outside and we saw the Dolphy Theater.
After a 5-minute break, we were brought to the waiting area before entering the Showtime studio. We only waited around 15 minutes and a few safety reminders were announced prior to entering the studio.
After that short film, we were surprised by Papa P and Sam Milby – not! Two of the Showtime Lolos, Mel Feliciano and Master J came out and we started having fun even before the actual show started. They taught the Madlang Pipol a few moves and dance steps that should be done in the actual show. So that’s the way it is done. I love the dance steps for Fireworks! Lol.
Then, Showtime started. Parteh Parteh!!!
We caught Anne Curtis and Vhong Navarro having an LQ. Yihii. Kidding!
Four contestants competed that day. Here are some snaps.
Kuya Kim rocking it out. Yeah!!!
Regine Angeles and her party on the floor.
Kiray Celis in her Beyonce-like song and dance number.
Janus del Prado and his 90′s rap. Woot!
Vice Ganda acting with her “daughter” Kiray.
It was fun to become part of the Madlang Pipol. I look forward to being one again in the future. Thanks ABS-CBN and Showtime for that fun-filled Season 4 opening. Kudos!
Spread some awesome..ness..
