Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to the hit musical movie Pitch Perfect, has released behind-the-scene clips online under the Universal Pictures. And it includes an all-male vocal group called “Filharmonic” who are of Filipino Heritage.
The behind-the-scene clip runs in less than 60 seconds with director/ producer Elizabeth Banks explaining that they wanted “to represent multiple countries” in the main competition in the musical film. Thus, allowing the Filharmonic in the second film of Pitch Perfect.
They decided to go a cappella in different languages for their goal of representing multiple countries. They tried to put as many real groups into the finale as the crew could, with inspirations from real life.
The Filharmonic were singing Tagalog, and their talents impressed Derek Sharon, the vocal producer.
The all-male vocal group is composed of VJ Rosales, Joe Caigoy, Trace Gaynor, Barry Fortgang, Jules Cruz and Niko Del Rey.
They consider their “Pitch Perfect” stint a “wild ride” and an “epic” experience. They also said that their scene in the movie “felt like a real concert.”
“Pitch Perfect 2” will be in cinemas on May 13 with some of its original cast including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Anna Camp.
