'Emphasizing the huge influence of his heritage in his works, Francis was the perfect choice to create Bretman’s fashion film. Films that feature Filipino jeepneys, ternos, tsinelas and even the bayong are common elements in most of Francis’ works which is why working with an all-Filipino team was an honor. Francis shares, “proof of that is the energy on set and the enthusiasm of producing an issue that is authentically Filipino. Our conversations about our experiences back home, especially with Bretman who’s a fellow Ilocano, were also some highlights of the day.” (Nylon Manila, MEET THE ALL-FILIPINO TEAM WHO MADE BRETMAN ROCK’S COVER SHOOT HAPPEN)
