As a filmmaker, Jason Paul “JP” Laxamana’s end goal is to produce films of exceptional story-telling and superb cinematography rather than make commercial success.

The award-winning director stressed on Tuesday as a fan sought his reaction to the rumored weak gross earnings of his new movie, "Between Maybes", starring Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson, on its first day of screening last May 15. 

Sayang maganda daw movie pero 2 million lang kinita sa first day, [JP]?,” commented the fan in one of his posts on Instagram.

“I dunno. I don't care,” replied JP. “Goal ko gumawa ng maganda. May sweldo naman ako.”

Produced by Black Sheep, ‘Between Maybes’ tells the story of Hazel Ilagan (played by Julia), a famous actress, and Louie Puyat (Gerald), a son of parents who are overseas Filipino workers, and their fateful encounter in Japan.
