“Your Moment is that… it’s a eureka moment. It’s an awakening or a moment that everything just gelled together. It becomes a perfect point in a specific timeline,” says Laurenti Dyogi, ABS-CBN TV Production Head.
On November 9, 2019, the 2-in-1 reality talent competition show titled Your Moment is coming our way. First of its kind, the show is both a singing and dancing competition that ABS-CBN is pioneering in the global entertainment market. It is a joint-collaboration between the Kapamilya network and Fritz Production.
Anuska Jantina Ban, Fritz Production President, has been working with ABS-CBN since 2004 in the very first edition of Pinoy Big Brother. Now, she co-leads the production of Your Moment.
“The team she brought into this project are high-caliber directors, set designers and music producers and they’re known in the European market. They have expertise that has been honed not only in Amsterdam, but the entire European market. So, how is it like working with them? World-class,” shares Direk Lauren.
Reily Santiago, Business Unit Head, informs us: “The idea of a rotating centerpiece, which is the audience and judge area, is another first in the world.” The show includes three massive sets: the singing stage, the dancing stage, and the rotating audience set. For the revolving immersive set to happen, the show needed a massive space. Fortunately, there is a newly built ABS-CBN Soundstage Studio in San Jose Del Monte City, Bulacan.
“It’s the first time that we shot in the Soundstage of ABS-CBN in Bulacan and there was really a lot of learnings that we had to implement,” says Director Jon Moll.
Rolf Meter who is a Co-creator/Director of Fritz Production, states: “It was a specific set because it was very hard to build. Because technically, it’s a huge performance from the guys who made it. I never saw a set like this in Europe.”
Having such an impressive innovation in reality competition, Your Moment has attracted many foreign acts to join the show. There were contestants from Japan, France, Indonesia, South Korea, and India, which greatly challenged the local acts that came from “more or less, more than 70 provinces” in the country.
When it comes to the mechanics of the show, Reily Santiago explains: “We have an “Emo-Meter” wherein they [the judges] will turn the dials and then at the end of the show, there will be one winner in singing and one winner in dancing.”
Given that the show is a 2-in-1 competition format, Your Moment brought together two talented hosts namely Luis Manzano and Vhong Navarro. International artist sensation Billy Crawford, multi-awarded actress and recording artist Nadine Lustre, and the A-star builder and one and only King of Talk Boy Abunda are the revered judges in the show.
