Storyline

During the global recession, Dale, an American sales coach comes to Manila to teach the staff at a call center how to sell up. He mentions that he's learned these survival techniques from his career in sales and from acting in Hollywood. Rosa, a star-struck employee, goes on line, looks Paul up, and finds that he was in a movie with Brendan Fraser. She volunteers to show him around and texts a couple of girlfriends to join them for the afternoon and maybe the night. By accident or on purpose, messages are garbled and some people may think he's Brendan Fraser. What's next? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A filmmaker with real promise!
12 January 2011 | by safarimediaSee all my reviews

This film should be a feature. If I knew how to get financing for it, I would help this guy make it into one. It is a superb film. I saw it at SXSW and was blown away to find out it was made by a guy fresh out of film school. The story revolves around a failed Hollywood actor who's either escaped or been reluctantly recruited to the Philippines to work as a telemarketing trainer (the underlying reason is never explained nor does it need to be). But his bravado about having been an "actor in Los Angeles" soon takes a wrong turn leading to a stunning conclusion. What begins as a humorous take on one American's abuse of his own power and the cultural misunderstanding that follows soon takes a serious turn. It would be hard to find a film out there now that tells the story of globalization in a tighter, more intelligent way than "Teleglobal Dreamin'". Watch out for Director Eric Flanagan. If he continues on this path, we can expect great things.
