Zeus Collins on facing possible criticisms in upcoming film: ‘Ready naman ako’


Zeus Collins, who plays a taxi driver in the upcoming Lights Camera Magic! short film entry Napaano Ka Arna, said it was a very challenging role which required him to deliver dance routines while conveying emotions through various acting scenes. 

Sharing some of the challenges he faced while filming, he said: “Siguro ‘yung hindi masira ‘yung taxi na gagamitin. Kasi dapat dahan-dahan, smooth lang. Kasi may mga mga tumbling kasi eh. May mga stunts kaming gagawin na dapat nasa taas kami ng taxi pero ‘yung iba hindi namin ginawa dahil baka mayupi. Kaya ‘yun challange sa amin bigla kaming nagbago ng choreo.”

While he finds the role quite challenging, Zeus revealed that the uniqueness of the film’s concept made him say yes to doing it.

Nagustuhan ko rin ‘yung istorya kasi sinabi sakin ni Direk ‘yun nga hindi siya ‘yung basta sayaw lang na movie. Talagang may kuwento siya kasi malalim dahil sa isang babae na nagawa niya lahat para sa nanay niya. Tapos kakaiba pa kasi sayaw. Hindi mo ginagamit ‘yung salita. Sa pamamagitan lang ng galaw lang ng katawan mo. Kaya ito sobrang bago ‘to para sa akin,” he stated.

The 25-year-old Hashtags member said he is ready to face possible criticisms for accepting the role in a film which tackles extrajudicial killings.

“Ready naman ako kasi natural naman ‘yun na may magco-comment naman na mga tao. Siyempre kung gagawin mo nang maayos, isasapuso mo, maparating mo ‘yung mensahe ng gagawin mo. Talagang pagpupursigihin mo,” he said. 

The 15-minute short film, directed by Patricia Ann Rivera and also stars Pokwang, is set to premiere via Lights Camera Magic!'s website sometime in March or April.
