Eventologist The Movie. “When the master of events falls from grace and manipulates the ending of his life story.” Based on actual events. Written by Oscar De Jesus Yema.
STEVEN LUCAS (not his real name) is an event organizer of Filipino community events in Doha, Qatar. He falls from grace and gets his own life. In coma, he comes up with the idea to get his career back on track.
It is a MOVIE about his downfall and how to stand again head up high. EVENTOLOGIST is a coined term for “event organizer”, not a body of science. That’s what his friends call him. Mr. Eventologist himself wrote the script when he wakes up from coma.
The problem, content of the movie is as idealistic as he is. He changes the story to fit the format of a Hollywood happy ending. A formula for block-buster hits. No suicide, just a happily ever after. It’s a unrealistic and idealistic story like his events. A no-no to Hollywood that the main character dies. Like his past event as well, the idea won’t sell. A life versus movie conflict.
The movie is about friendship through thick and thin as Steven and friends stage concerts for the Filipino community. The movie will show behind the scenes on how the event is organize as the story unfolds and the script develops into a full blown screenplay, interwoven into the film fabric’s drama within.
The movie is a documentary using actual footage of celebrities that came to Doha with Steven Lucas and producer such as Sarah Geronimo, Gary Valenciano, Kamikaze Band, Yeng Constantino, Christine Reyes, Side A Band, Nina, PBA Legends to name a few. Even footage of singers who did not come to Doha but was paid for like David Pomeranz, Joey Albert, The Voice Champions, Jennylyn Mercado and many more, thus his downfall. Why they did not come to perform? That is his fall from grace.
The movie is about crab mentality of Filipinos abroad, fake news and on-line bullying that triggered Steven Lucas’ suicide. He was destroyed on social media by his fellow countrymen.
The Eventologist is a much-watch movie by Filipino expats who are hungry of entertainment in their respective countries. A global film of relevance with a touch of glitz and glamour.
