Wenn Deramas admits he used true-to-life scenes in 'This Guy's In Love With U, Mare'


102412-wenn_main.jpgAfter breaking box-office records last year with his hit comedy Praybeyt Benjamin, director Wenn Deramas said he did not plan on surpassing his previous movie while making the currently P200M grossing This Guy’s In Love With U, Mare. “Wala naman akong ganung mga ilusyon sa buhay na kailangan itong gagawin ko ay ibi-beat yung mga nagawa mo na. Pero ang sa akin basta kumita at masaya ang producers, sapat na yun eh. Binibigyan kami ng bonus, hindi pa ba sapat yun? Masaya na yun,” he admitted during the This Guy’s In Love With U, Mare victory party held last October 19 inside the ABS-CBN compound.

The director said that he is not pressured to be successful at the box office as long as he knows he made a good movie. “Ako kahit anong ginagawa ko, wala talaga yung pressure sa akin. Pag ginagawa namin yung pelikula tapos pinapanuod ng mga producers ko yung rushes, sasabihin nila sa akin kung kulang pa yung comedy o dagdagan mo ng comedy. Pero pag na-satisfy mo na sila, okay na, wala na talaga. Natutunan ko yun na kayo na ang bahalang magbenta. Kasi yung konsepto naman nito, talagang may window para sa sunod-sunod na komedya kahit hindi mahirap,” he admitted.

One of the most memorable scenes he shot was Vice Ganda and Luis Manzano’s bed scene. “Nakakatakot, walang biro. Kasi hindi ko ini-expect na naka-brief  lang si Luis eh. Pag tanggal niya nung towel, akala ko naka-boxer shorts yung ganun. Susmaryosep (laughs),” he recalled.

Direk Wenn said he would not hesitate to work with Toni Gonzaga, Luis Manzano, and Vice Ganda again if given the chance. “Alam ko sa TV meron kami ni Celestine (Toni’s full name) na ginagawa, may binubuo kami. Si Vice sa Sisteraka, si Luis sana pero hindi ko alam kasi sobra kaming nag-enjoy habang ginagawa namin ito. Siguro nag-reflect naman yun sa pelikula, yung saya. At kung sila ulit, naku okay na okay lang kasi nga makukulit, masaya,” he said.

While shooting the movie, Direk Wenn said he could not help but inject some of his personal experiences in the scenes. “Ang linya na gamit ko or gagamitin ni Vice, totoong totoo. Meron nga akong eksena dito na sila Luis and Vice nagpre-prepare sila pareho kasi nakakaiyak daw. Sabi ko ayoko, walang iiyak sa inyo, gusto ko yung nanunuod ang umiyak pero huwag kayong magpaiyak. Pero linagyan ko sila ng malungkot na music. Parang sira ulo (laughs). So masyadong totoo yung mga linya na sinasabi nga ni Vice sa akin na, ‘Mother naman eh, parang totoo to eh, ganun.’ Sabi ko, ‘Totoo naman kasi talaga.’ Ang komedya naman kasi lagi ay ang base naman nito ay drama di ba? Kahit yung Praybeyt Benjamin di ba may mga ganun. Itong This Guy’s In Love With U, Mare ay isang pelikula na unang sabi pa lang kay Tita Malou (Santos) sa Star Cinema, pinagawa niya agad yung script. Nagandahan siya agad dun sa konsepto,” he shared.

Direk Wenn credited fans for making This Guy’s In Love With U, Mare a hit this year. “Walang katapusang pasasalamat sa inyo dahil kayo naman yung nagbigay sa amin nito, kayo ang nagluklok kung saan man kami ngayon at kung ano yung mga magiging pagdating ng panahon. Isa pang importante po sa amin ay marinig ko lang yung halakhak niyo, yung kasiyahan niyo, may mga nagsasabing sulit yung mga binabayad nila kaya okay na yun sa amin,” he said.
