Recently, Boys Love series became a huge hit in the Philippines, that’s why the Kumu app—a livestreaming platform—together with Firestarters Production Inc., decided to launch a Pinoy BL series called Kumusta Bro?.
Directed by Real Florido, Kumusta Bro? is a first of its kind interactive digital Pinoy BL series that people can stream through the Kumu app. The story is about old friends who got reunited through a livestream app and the boys discovering on how to fall in love online. Starring Sky Quizon as Thirdy, Kristoff Garcia as Bench, RJ Agustin as Cerwin, and Allen Cecilio as Dean, the series will be shown via the Kumu app and the audience has the power to *control* the flow of the story. They can answer polls, quizzes, send requests, and send comments on a real-time basis. Basically, everything will unfold right before our eyes.
Due to the fact that it's real-time, the acting needs to be spontaneous, so it will be a huge challenge for the actors to keep the show ~perfect~. According to the cast members, they attend workshops to prepare them for live acting.
"Ready na po kaming ‘wag makabitaw do’n sa character na ginagampanan namin kahit na livestream and kahit na kailangan sobrang spontaneous namin. ‘Yun po ‘yung inaaral namin sa workshop and sobrang excited lang kaming lahat na mapakita ‘yung pinaghandaan namin," they shared.
Kumusta Bro? streams on July 20 at the Kumu app.
The Kumu app is available on both App Store and Google Play for free.
