To prepare for his new role behind the camera, Lim reveals that he took a 15-week workshop under veteran scriptwriter Ricky Lee to help him prepare for his pitch to the Cinemalaya board. Considering he’d been wanting to take this project off the ground for two years now, Lim shares that he was very much involved in turning the full script, holding auditions and callbacks, and pitching his screenplay.
