All You Need is Pag-Ibig director Antoinette Jadaone revealed to PUSH.com.ph that she felt kilig watching cast members Jodi Sta. Maria and Ian Veneracion work together in this 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry.
Referring to the two as the most memorable actors she has worked with in this film, Direk Tonette said, “Kasi, first, sa portrayal nila ng characters, nakakakilig talaga sila. As in kapag nagpe-playback kami, kapag ineedit namin, kinikilig talaga kami. ‘Yung chemistry nila nandoon pero hindi mo inexpect na sa kanila ka kikiligin.”
Elaborating on the feeling, the “Ultimate Hugot Director” added, “Siguro parang nakikita mo ‘yung dalawang best friends mo na nagkaka-inlove-an. Ganon ‘yung kilig eh so you root for them to be magkatuluyan in the end.”
Likewise, Direk Tonette said that she wants to work with Jodi and Ian again because, “Sobrang dali nila katrabaho, sobrang gaan nila katrabaho. As in I want to work with them again because of how smooth the shooting was kapag sila ‘yung artista.”
Moreover, she described the work ethics of the on-screen partners who also tape regularly for their ongoing primetime teleserye, Pangako Sa ‘Yo. “Happy lang sila kahit alas singko ng madaling araw o alas singko ng hapon, parehas lang ang energy nila. Nagkukulitan lang sila sa set tapos ‘yun, gagawin nila ‘yung eksena na parang hindi puyat, na (hindi) parang walang tulog, na parang walang Pangako Sa ‘Yo the next day. So masarap katrabaho ‘yung mga ganung artista na parang shine-share nila ‘yung vision nung director sa film,” Direk Tonette said.
