Aside from being an actor on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano and a host on Banana Sundae, John Prats is now a director, taking the helm at concerts and music videos. At a press conference last September 11, John announced that he would be the director for Erik Santos’s 15th Anniversary concert on September 22 at the MOA Arena and a collaborative director of the Boys II Men with Divas concert on December 15 at the Big Dome.
The Ang Probinsyano actor recalled the time when Erik himself approached him and asked him to be his director. “Kinausap niya (Erik) ko, sabi niya, ‘Direk, ikaw mag-direk ng concert ko.’ Sabi ko, ‘Totoo ba yan?’ Si Erik yung isa sa mga unang naniwala (sa akin).
“After that week I received a call from Cornerstone, na si Miss K Brosas din gusto (ako) mag-direk, and then si Richard Poon. So dun na (nag-start).” he said.
John also admitted feeling kilig the first time he was asked to direct The Divas (Kyla, KZ Tandingan, Yeng Constantino and Angeline Quinto) at the Boyz II Men’s upcoming Manila concert.
“It’s a collaboration, there are two artists, the Boyz II Men and The Divas. I’ll be directing The Divas’ side. But to be part of it is amazing. Nakaka-excite pero ngayon gusto ko muna mag-focus kay Erik. Pero kinilig talaga ako when I got the message.”
Meanwhile, the 34-year old actor said that he is planning to direct a movie by next year.
When asked if he can make a movie starring his ex-girlfriends, “Feeling ko I’ll be comfortable with that, but I’m not sure if my wife will be comfortable with that. And if she’s not comfortable with that, I don’t think I’ll be comfortable with that,” he answered with a laugh.
John clarified that he has no issues with his exes and added that they are all mature now. “Kahit sino naman I’m okay with my exes. Siguro nasa ibang level naman na kami, may mga pamilya na kami, may mga anak na kami. Wala na yung, ‘Oh my God nandiyan yung ex ko, kelangan kong magtago,” he explained.
John has been directing concerts since Moira Dela Torre’s Tagpuan show last February.
