Erik Matti says sound mixing for ‘On the Job 2’ done; film ‘ready for the world’ soon
The crew behind Erik Matti’s much-awaited “On the Job” sequel is finally done with sound mixing for the film.
Matti announced that they did the final mix yesterday, June 25, after around seven months of “completing all the sound and [VFX],” as seen on his Instagram account on the same day.
The award-winning director worked with Corinne De San Jose, Aian Louie Caro, JL Moralda, Stacey Bascon, Steve Vesagas and Bebet Casas for the mix.

“This is the last day but we still have a final viewing of the locked picture and sound this coming Monday (June 28),” Matti shared.
“Hopefully, that’ll be the last viewing before we are ready for the world,” the director added.
The said sequel, titled “On the Job 2: The Missing 8,” is around three hours and 28 minutes long at its current cut, according to Matti.
He previously stated that it “might turn out to be [his] longest film ever both in production length and in running time,” but noted that it is “all gonna be worth it.”
Matti initially planned on creating an “On the Job” online series to follow the first film, but eventually decided to make a full-length movie instead.
“On the Job 2” was first set to be released in June 2019, and was supposed to be followed by a five-part series. The plans were postponed for undisclosed reasons.
Matti’s spouse, Filipino-Japanese screenwriter Michiko Yamamoto, meanwhile, returned for the film’s second installation to pen its screenplay.
Matti previously teased that Joel Torre would be reprising Mario “Tatang” Maghari. Actors Dennis Trillo, John Arcilla, Christopher de Leon and Rayver Cruz will also be appearing in the sequel.
The first “On the Job” movie centers on two prisoners, “Tatang” (Torre) and Daniel (Gerald Anderson), who are temporarily released from jail to work as hitmen for corrupt politicians. /ra
