Kim Chiu and Xian Lim talk about working with Antoinette Jadaone


122015-KIMXI_main.jpgThe 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry All You Need is Pag-ibig is the first time for Kim Chiu and Xian Lim to work with director Antoinette Jadaone.

How was their experience with the director-writer who was also behind That Thing Called Tadhana and wrote the 2014 MMFF Best Original Story, English Only, Please?

“Si Direk, noong una ko pa lang siyang kita couple of years ago, nakita ko na sobra siyang artistic na tao. Nagsusulat siya palagi and now that she’s directing, ang gusto niya lang palagi is kung ano ‘yung meron ka, ‘yun lang ‘yung ibibigay mo, nothing more, nothing less. Kung ito lang ‘yung lumabas, hanggang diyan lang talaga. ‘Wag natin pilitin. Basta as natural as possible… ‘Yun ‘yung isa sa mga napakagling sa kanya, kuhang kuha niya kung papaano mo sasabihin ‘yun as yourself,” Xian said.

Kim shared that Direk Antoinette likes to laugh on the set. “Masayahin lang siya kahit everyday siya nagwowork kasi sa dami namin. Hindi mo makikita sa kanya na pagod siya and the way she directs, gusto niya natural lang. Ayaw niya masyadong nagrerehearse. Parang kaya niyo na ‘yan di ba? Okay, take na. Kung ano ‘yung mas natural, ‘yun ‘yung gusto niya.” 

Xian also commended the way the director explains their scenes to them. “Parang pag-ineexplain niya sa’min, parang nangyari na sa kanya so makikita mo sa mata niya na nangyari na ‘yun.”
