As one of the directors of the hit drama series The Broken Marriage Vow, Connie Macatuno shared there is still a lot more that viewers can look forward to the show.

“Para sa akin, talagang paakyat pa lang tayo. Kung iniisip niyo na nandun na tayo, aakyat pa tayo. Walang nagpatinag, lahat sobrang husay at authentic ang ibinigay na pag-arte at pagbuo ng mga characters. Yan ang maaasahan ninyo na hanggang sa dulong dulong eksena dito,” she shared during The Broken Marriage Vow finale press conference. 

Just like one of the most iconic lines in the show which was delivered by lead star Jodi Sta. Maria who plays the role of Jill Ilustre, direk Connie shared what she considered the most exciting part in doing the series.
“Pinaka-exciting para sa akin yung makita ko three dimensionally yung konsepto natin na nasa utak lang. Ngayon nakikita mo na siyang nangyayari. Yung parang ang sarap maglaro. I call it play eh kasi parang iniisip mo muna what if we do this or let’s go for this kind of approach. Inside you know where it’s going to go eh but at the same time, the whole shoot does not rely on one person alone. It relies on each and every one to make that vision happen.

“So yun yung part ng excitement na makikita mo. Para magawa mo yung vision na yun in a short period of time kailangan may teamwork. Napakasarap ng feeling na yun na makita yung bawat isa mag-bloom, tapos makita mo yung location mo biglang mag-fit in kasi dati pictures lang yan eh.

“Nabuhay kami sa PowerPoint eh. Umabot yung powerpoint namin ng mga 200 slides, mga 400 slides, ganyan. Para lang bago kami dumating sa Baguio, more or less nakita mo na. So yun yung pinakamasarap at pinaka-exciting part kaya huwag kayong bumitaw,” she explained.

With The Broken Marriage Vow receiving rave reviews from viewers from all over the world, direk Connie shared what kind of legacy she hopes the show can leave in the hearts of Pinoys

“Base sa mga feedback na nabigay sa akin, siguro ito yung unang serye na naging Filipino yung approach niya but in a global context. Pinoy naman tayo so lahat naman ng gawa natin very Filipino di ba? Kuwento ng Pinoy. Except na dito may conscious effort, mindful effort na maging global yung approach niya. Kumbaga nagpapakilala ka sa ibang bansa na heto bilang Pilipino.

“Ang parte siguro ng joy ko rito is hindi lang yung buong Pilipinas yung nag-connect sa kanya kundi ang bawat Pilipino sa buong mundo na inaabutan ng TFC (The Filipino Channel). How I know is that they reach out. Hindi ko sila kilala. Nag-me-message sila either sa IG or dun sa FB tapos sinasabi nila na they feel proud to be Filipinos. So sa akin siguro hindi siya madaling gawin pero ito yung end result. Sana ma-re-awaken kumbaga lahat tayo na ang pag-iisip natin magpakilala globally bilang Pilipino,” she admitted.
