|Director Ryan Moore speaking to a very inspired audience|
January 6, 2015, Wells Fargo Bank, Otay Ranch Chula Vista Ca, Director/Producer Ryan Moore spoke to an intimate crowd of Filipino-Americans about his directorial debut movie, Manny by Universal Studios.
Ryan and I had been playing phone tag for over a month before we finally got a hold of each other! But as we both believe that if you are passionate enough at what you do you just won't stop until you achieve what you had in mind.
It is really humbling and I am honored to have Ryan come out and speak at our first The Filipino-American Connection Mixer. He had inspired and reminded many of us that we can really go for our dreams, take some risks and work very hard to make it happen. One of the things that he mentioned that night was that when he was discussing casting for his movie with hollywood executives... he was being asked who should he cast for the main role of Manny Pacquiao for this movie, should it be an A-Lister Hollywood Actor? and Ryan thought to himself...a Filipino of course. We have a quiet a bit of talent among us. We also have a good amount of Filipino-American Professionals, Entrepreneurs in our community and I believe in the power in connecting with each other, growing and learning and above all supporting each other. This is the sole purpose of having The Filipino-American Connection.
We will be meeting mostly at this location, 1st Tuesday of the month between 6-7:30pm. We currently have a facebook group, and a meet up page for any of you who believes might be interested to join and connect with us, it is absolutely free.

We had a really great mix of attendance for our first mixer. We had friends from the San Diego Police Department, sent over from friends at the Filipino-American Law Enforcement Officers of San Diego (FALEO), we had Kirin from Operation Samahan, Nor Lannon, friends from the Chula Vista School District, our entrepreneurs and professionals and always the support of Bayani TV.
Manny the movie will premiere on January 23, 2015. Please visit http://mannypacquiaomovie.com/theaters for schedule of showings near you!
