2015 marks the 30th year of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).
To kick off the celebration of its anniversary, MTRCB formally launched its new infomercial on February 23 at the MTRCB Building.
Directed by renowned film and television director Jose Javier “Joey” Reyes Jr., DGPI, and conceptualized by Erlito “Lilit” Reyes, the infomercial features Ryan and Judy Ann Agoncillo in a typical morning situation at home.
In such scene, their depicted child picks up a word from a TV feature and asks the elders in the house what it means.
The infomercial aims to challenge parents and responsible adults to be aware of the media content our children are exposed to, and to be mindful of the MTRCB’s classification ratings.
Parents are also reminded that the primary duty in guiding their children as to the media the latter see still rests in them.
Details of the infomercial were discussed by Direk Joey, Ryan and Juday, Lilit and MTRCB board members Bibeth Orteza and Manet Dayrit, the latter being co-chairpersons of the infomercial committee.
The launch was capped by the signing of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the TV networks and theater operators to ensure showing of the infomercial and to continuously empower the general public towards discerning viewership and thus, among other objectives, inform parents as to the media and entertainment their children may see.
The infomercial will be aired in all television networks and theaters nationwide starting today, Feb. 25.
