Another film that he finds very invigorating to do is Laruang Lalaki, which to him is probably the most daring project to date of Jay Altarejos, the director behind controversial pink movies such as Ang Lalaki sa Parola and Pink Halo-Halo.
"This movie will show how an independent gay film is made," articulates Quan. "I had no qualms in accepting this gay project because ang ganda ng atake ni direk Jay, para siyang movie within a movie. Lahat ng aspekto na pinagdaanan para mabuo ang isang pelikula na pang-gay, from pre-production, audition, actual shoot, post production, press conference, hanggang sa supposedly pakiki-paglaban niya sa MTRCB--all of these will be captured and shown. I'm playing the director."
He elaborates, "When shot the audition scene, all that direk Jay and I did was discuss how he envisions what's going to happen and then, shoot na agad! Walang script-script, and since I am the director, I was in control of every thing that was happening."
"Sobrang lupet ng character kong si Jake!" he exclaims. "Everything about the film is so realistic, captured ang lahat ng eksena. Also, the other male members of the cast had no qualms about nudity, ready silang lahat to go all the way, hubad kung hubad, hubo kung hubo!'
"The whole process that was employed in this film is so thrilling, and as an actor, with all your faculties opened and heightened and your creativity pushed, paano ka namang di gaganahan sa proyektong tulad nito."
Jay Altarejos' Laruang Lalaki is showing on October in selected digital cinemas.
