With his TBA Studios film Dito at Doon now available for streaming online, JC Santos said he enjoyed his first shooting experience since the lockdown last year.

“Actually, pabor ako dun sa lock-in taping kasi sa proseso ng mga naglilikha, kailangan natin ng time di ba? Kailangan nating himayin yung script, kailangan natin alamin yung tamang puwesto ng camera and alamin natin yung timing ng bawat take. So meron tayong oras para isipin lahat yun and ma-organize lahat yun. Katulad ng nangyari sa pelikulang ito, maayos ang lahat ng bagay. Kasi nabigyan kami ng tamang panahon para magpahinga at nabigyan kami ng tamang panahon para mag-isip at mapaganda yung pelikula,” he said.

Last year, JC said his biggest challenge was getting over the uncertainty of work.

“Challenging lang yung idea na hindi ko alam kung magkakatrabaho ako. Yun yung pinakamahirap. Hindi ko alam kung kailan magkakatrabaho at siyempre nasanay ka na every month may dumarating, alam mo yun. Tapos biglang wala tapos nagsara yung network. Tapos hindi mo alam kung ano na mangyayari bukas tapos lumalala pa yung cases. That was really bad for me. But even for acting, you have to just be in the moment. Kailangan kung sino yung mga nasa harapan mo at kung sino ang mga nasa paligid mo kailangan mo alagaan. Just take care of yourself and everyone na kasama mo diyan,” he advised.

Playing the new leading man of Janine Gutierrez onscreen was not hard for JC, who admitted he enjoyed working with her.

“Once na nagsabi na ang director ng ‘Action!’ in love na kami at once nagsabi na siya ng cut ganun kabilis. There’s always a right way and a right mindset. Parang you snap out of it right away. It’s an exercise naman that some actors train to do. Si Janine yung pinakamasarap na katrabaho dahil she’s super generous and open and wala siyang wall kaagad so approachable. So kahit anong ibigay kong acting choice sa kanya, naibabalik sa akin kaagad at naibabalik sa akin ng mas maganda pa na hindi ko na-e-expect. Nagugulat ako every time so gumaganda kasi paulit ulit din namin siyang ginagawa. So she managed to amke it fresh every time. So nag-enjoy ako the whole time. Sana maulit ng maulit pa,” he shared.

Despite the current lockdown, JC said he already looks forward to the day when he can bring his family out to travel the world. “Matagal na kasi namin plano ng wife ko na lumabas ng bansa. Yun talaga yung gusto namin, mag-travel. Lalo na ngayon laging nasa bahay yung baby so gusto sana namin mag-travel. Pagkatapos ng lahat ng ito gusto namin magpunta kung saan saan. Ma-explore man lang yung mundo ulit,” he said.
