He had quick hands and reflexes and he’s a fast thinker. Even though Lupin was only a high school graduate, he is extremely intelligent. He’s a business tycoon during the day and a master thief by night.  Lupin also opts to use his wit and charm as his weapons.

           Lupin has three sidekicks who help him in heists: Ashley, a military school graduate who is a sharp-shooter, a mistress of disguise, and a really beautiful lass; Brigette, Lupin's lookout, a college dropout from a computer school where she gained her skill in hacking, and an expert in using knives as weapons; and Castor known as the ‘King of Small Time Con’ who used to be Lupin's opponent.  In their adventure as thieves, a comical antagonist Inspector Clavio always gets in their way.

          Meanwhile, two women will capture Lupin's heart: Angeli Villavicer, whom Lupin wants to marry and turn his back from his dark life as a thief; and Avril Legarda, the orphaned daughter and sole heir of a killed rich businessman.

Lupin unfolds a compelling story of trials, tragedy, success and love. With sleek and luxurious sports cars, breath-taking and action-packed scenes, and swoon-worthy romantic story, Lupin will surely captivate viewers’ attention.

A series of murders takes place in the metropolis in a span of three weeks, the latest of which happens on the night Junior (Cesar Montano), a taxi driver, makes love to a prostitute. After establishing a pattern from the killings, police investigator Inspector Noble (Rommel Montano) theorizes that a serial killer may be responsible for all the murders. Junior is aware of the killings, but this doesn't bother him.  Instead, he is focused on his new relationship with a girl named Trixie (Sunshine Cruz), a nurse whom he plans to marry.  But Trixie wants Junior to meet her family first, so they head to the countryside where her family lives.
            
       As the story goes, a mysterious man riding in an old van heads towards Trixie's house. When the ominous-looking man reaches the house, he takes down Trixie's family one by one and captures Trixie alive.  Meanwhile, Inspector Noble finally identifies the serial killer—Damian Garote (Johnny Delgado), an officer of Metrocom during Martial Law.  He was considered to be the most brutal and ruthless police officer during his time.  Junior eventually gets in the way of Damian and tries to stop him from getting away with Trixie. The two will recognize each other easily. But in the end, nothing is what it seems.

Cast (in credits order) : Cesar Montano Juliana Palermo Jacky Woo Joel Torre Ronnie Lazaro Rebecca Lusterio Daria Ramirez Caridad Sanchez Suzette Ranillo
Written By: Cris Vertido  Directed By: Cesar Montano
           
Genre:   Romance / Drama

Synopsis: In the island province of Bohol during the Japanese Occupation in the Philippines, a banca operator-turned-guerrilla named Duroy (Cesar Montano) falls in love with Iset (Juliana Palermo), a lovely lass from the same village where the people’s main thoroughfare is a river. 
            John Smith (Philip Anthony), an American stingy landowner is captivated by Iset’s beauty, and so is Duroy’s brother Ibo (Reiven Bulado). Since Duroy adores his family, he gives way to his younger brother.
           
          When the Japanese invasion begins, Fumio Ohkohara (Jackie Woo), a handsome Japanese officer takes over the village and also falls in love with Iset. 
            
           During the Japanese Era, Duroy joins a band of guerillas and later becomes their leader, mainly because of his talent in creating innovative methods in fighting the enemy. Iset, on the other hand, is appalled at the brutality of the Japanese and her father’s collaboration with them. She makes a bold move against her parents and what they stand for by joining the guerillas.
           
         After a series of sorties, Duroy leads a final assault over the Japanese and succeeds.  It boosts his low self-esteem as an underachiever and illiterate person.
           
        What appears to be a battle won in love and in war takes a strange twist in the end with the return of the American suitor.  Duroy, after getting rid of the ghosts of his troubled and deprived past, decides for everyone else. He answers the insistent call of the river.

(8 volumes)
Cast / Characters: Robin Padilla (Elias) Angel Locsin (Gabriela) Marvin Agustin (Hector) Diana Zubiri (Ingrid) Eddie Garcia (Prof. Wakan) Glaiza de Castro (Clara) Marky Cielo (Mateo) Ronaldo Valdez (Ulysses) Jonee Gamboa (Don Julian) Caridad Sanchez (Miranda) Jaime Fabregas (Gomburza) Ella V. (Lady Grace)
         
Genre:   Action /Adventure /Comedy
Synopsis: Asian Treasures is an engaging story involving the quest for hidden treasures that date back from the start of Philippine civilization. It is said that these treasures were gathered from different parts of Asia by 10 Bornean Datus who formed a city in a place known as Itim na Ginto (Black Gold). This secret has been passed on among the descendants of two groups of Filipinos -- the KKK (Kapatirang Kumakalinga ng Kayamanan), who wants to protect the treasures, and the Sudama, the group who has selfish intentions in finding the treasures. Coming from the lineage of the KKK, Gabriela (Angel Locsin) is an iron-willed young lass who was well-trained in the field of combat for an all-important task of carrying on the mission of her ancestors. Since the Sudama have begun an aggressive pursuit of the hidden treasures, even obliterating KKK members who got in the way of their quest, the KKK needs to get ahead to be able to protect the treasures. In an unlikely turn of events, Gabriela’s path will cross with the wisecracking auto-mechanic-cum-stuntman Elias (Robin Padilla) who will be her companion in her special mission. Together, they will travel to different parts of Asia in search of the 10 powerful amulets and the clues leading to where the 10 Datus hid their Asian Treasures. As they face peril after peril in their Asian adventures, Elias and Gabriela will find something more precious than the treasures they are after, for they will soon realize that love has the ultimate power to turn their lives around.

Ang Mahiwagang Baul

      “Ang Mahiwagang Baul” unravels the magical world of Philippine Folklore.  In the early days, it is accustomed to Filipino children to hear and read stories about Philippine myths and legends that have been intrinsically woven into the country’s rich culture. Unfortunately, today’s generation of Filipino children have lost touch with the richness of Philippine folk literature due to existence of digital technologies and proliferation of Western influences on television.

In an effort to rekindle the Filipino children’s interest in the richness of Philippine folklore, GMA-7 brings us “Mahiwagang Baul”, a weekly fantasy program that aims to impart good values, propagate better appreciation of the country’s cultural heritage and inculcate national pride among Filipino viewers.   GMA Records and Home Video on the other hand, will compile the episodes and release it on DVD format in different volumes, with the purpose of strengthening Filipino cultural values and reach more generations of Filipino children. DVD contains special features such as episode selections, english subtitles and trailers.

It was nominated for Golden Cairo Award in the 2001 Cairo International Film Festival.  It was shown and competed in other international film festivals.

Synopsis: An orphan raised among distant relatives in the slums of Manila, Sonny Corpus (Cogie Domingo) likes little more than hanging out with his buddies Celso, Jimmy, and Rodel. When Celso cons Sonny into participating in a robbery along with his friends, Jimmy and Rodel end up dead along with an old lady. Unable to prove his innocence of the crime (Celso pulled the trigger) and unable to prove his minor status, Sonny gets pinned with the crime and is sentenced to death. Sonny quickly learns the rules and hierarchies of the prison -- Mio is the boss who recruits Sonny as a pusher for his illicit smuggling business. His trusted henchman Gabino (Pen Medina) is quietly plotting a palace coup and tries to win Sonny over with gifts and favors. Yet when Sonny makes it clear that he's loyal to Mio, Gabino exacts an awful revenge. Later, Sonny is taken in by Lolo Sinat (Eddie Garcia), an aging gangster whom everyone in prison respects.

   Genre: Action/Drama/Adventure
   Directed by: Marilou Diaz-Abaya
   Starring: Cesar Montano

          Winner of thirteen awards out of its sixteen nominations at the 1999 Metro Manila Film Festival including Best Child Performer (Rebecca Lusterio), Best Story (Marilou Diaz-Abaya, Ricardo Lee, Jun Lana), Best Screenplay (Ricardo Lee and Jun Lana), Best Director (Marilou Diaz-Abaya) and Best Picture.

Synopsis: Muro Ami (Reef-Hunters) is a film that depicts one of the worst forms of child labor in the illegal fishing system.  Fredo is the ruthless captain of 150 Muro Ami divers.  The illegal fishing is done by pounding and crushing corals underwater to scare the fishes and luring them towards the nets. With a high quota to meet, Fredo forces the divers, who consist mostly of children, to accomplish at least eight dives a day to meet their goal before the millennium.  Tired and harassed after the burdening task being given to them, the children have to make do in subhuman conditions in the Muro Ami boat, The Aurora.  They sleep in rat-infested bunks and are fed only twice a day.  Life above the boat is much worse than the suffering the children encounter beneath the sea. For every dive, a child's life is perilously in danger.
