John Prats on shooting Sam Milby and Angelica Panganiban: ‘When I was shooting them, kinikilig talaga ako’.
John Prats revealed that it was such a breeze shooting Sam Milby and Angelica Panganiban for the music video of Moira Dela Torre’s hit song ‘Malaya’. The actor, who is also the director and owner of Bright Bulb Productions alongside Sam and Angelica, remarked that his friends were very easy to work with.
“Nagulat kami, ‘yung breakup scene one take lang ‘cause I used one camera lang so I took two shots tapos emotion muna ni Angelica tapos emotion ni Sam. ‘Yun nga sinabi ko na kay Angelica na ganito ‘yung gusto kong sitwasyon and I played the song lang na Malaya at nagulat ‘yung DOP ko na ang bilis, umiyak agad si Angelica. So ‘yun nag-take na kami agad. After non nag-take kami, si Sam na so sobrang bilis ng eksenang ‘yun so hindi mahirap,” he said.
He even admitted that he got kilig while directing Sam and Angelica’s scenes for the video. “Surprisingly when I was shooting them di ko alam kinikilig talaga ako. They have this ngayon ewan ko kung nagsama na sila sa project, pero grabe ‘yung chemistry nila, very strong and very natural kaya happy ako. Pagkikiligin ka talaga lalo na pag nandon ka,” he stated.
Asked if he is planning to make a movie with the two stars as the leads, John replied, “Well ngayong nakita ko ‘yung chemistry nila oo tsaka okay kasi if we are gonna produce it libre sila so why not?” he quipped. He added, “Bukod doon, ‘di na ako mahihirapan if makakagawa kami ng concept perfect for them.”
John relayed that the whole process of working with his friends, not only as his actors but also as his business partners have been really great.
“Mas sa una lang ‘yung work pero after a while mas madali kasi mas madali ko nang nasasabi sa kanila and since involved sila sa production, ramdam mong meron silang love at binibigay na importansya do’n sa project na ginagawa ninyo so ang sarap kasi nasa isang page lang kami. I’m just doing my job and they are doing their jobs ng 100 percent na binibigay namin lahat kaya madali for us,” he stated.
