Eugene Domingo ayaw magdirek: Never, I don’t really like it
Wala palang balak na magdirek si Eugene Domingo.
“Never. I don’t really like it. Marami ang nagtatanong, ‘nagdidirek ka ba?’ or ‘teacher ka ba?’ No, I don’t have any dream of becoming a teacher or a director.’ I am always a student,” say niya sa presscon ng
“Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank 3” series.
The seven-episode mockumentary series “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank: The Real Untold Story of Josephine Bracken” documents the step-by-step process in making a biopic. It starts streaming on iWant this July 17.
When told na dati siyang nagdirek sa isang university, she said, “I didn’t enjoy it. It was just a requirement.”
“Hindi ko…wala akong tiyaga. Pero if I need to learn another skill in this field, si-guro I would rather become an editor or a cinematographer. ‘Yun mas astig for me.
“Kasi ‘yung director parang umaga pa lang (kukulitin ka na). ‘Direk, ‘yung ganito. Mula sa kulay ng panty ni ganito hanggang doon sa kung paano iiyak. Hay, jusko, napaka-stressful.
“Tapos hindi pa ‘yan natatapos on the day of the shooting. Alam mo ‘yung mga director, bago matulog hanggang magising, ‘yun agad. Nakakapangit!”
Sa huli, sinabi ni Eugene na bilib na bilib siya sa mga director dahil hindi biro ang trabaho nila.
“I’m so sorry. I really admire (directors). It is a calling. It is not just ‘o, magdirek ka’ tapos lahat tatawagin nila para magdirek, director na. I mean, this is really a serious job,” she added.
