Q&A with SAVIOUR
Kumusta ang first acting experience ni Saviour?
“Very fun, exciting, and unforgettable because I haven't been acting for a long time, and it’s my first ever short film,” sagot ni Saviour nitong Agosto 22, Sabado ng umaga, via Facebook Messenger.
Kumusta ang pakikipagtrabaho kay Direk Adolf?
“I’m very thankful to Direk Adolf and the staff for not just getting me as one of the actors, but also for teaching me in a lot of ways.
"Working with Direk Adolf was very fulfilling. He’s a well known director, and having me on the short film is an honor. He's very approachable as well.”
Kabilang sa mga obra ni Direk Adolf ay ang Donsol, na naging Philippine entry sa Oscars Foreign Language Film category noong 2007, at Adela, na na-screen sa international film festivals ng Toronto, Pusan, at Rotterdam.
Paano pinaghandaan ni Saviour ang kanyang role?
“I practiced all day for the role because I want to show them my best."
The material is under the BL (Boys’ Love) genre, a bittersweet coming-of-age story. Paano siya nakumbinsing gawin ito?
“Because I really do want to be an actor that's why I’ll say yes whatever role it is, and I have a lot of friends who are ‘gay,’ and I’m sure that I’ll make them happy and proud by having my first-ever short film as BL,” paliwanag ni Saviour.
Supportive ba ang kanyang dad sa showbiz career ni Saviour?
“Yes, he wants me to be an actor as well.”
Kumusta ang shooting habang may quarantine?
“It’s hard because you have to be cautious in every situation, but working with Direk Adolf’s staff is pretty cool because they make sure that everyone is safe, they make hard things easier,” saad ng binata.
“And it’s a dream come true for me so it’s not really that hard.”
Bumilib si Direk Adolf kay Saviour.
“As a new actor, I think Saviour’s willingness to learn and choices will bring him places,” pahayag ni Direk Adolf sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) noong August 22.
“He’s also sensitive in terms of emotions so I think it really runs in the family, he is bitten by the acting bug.
“He is also open to doing unconventional roles which is a plus.”
Q&A WITH KIRST VIRAY
Ang nagsulat ng Episode 8: “Neo & Omar” ay si Jerome Zamora, na siya ring nagsulat ng Episode 7: “Luke & Matt” na bida sina Kirst Viray at Vince Rillon, at ipapalabas sa Agosto 27, Huwebes, sa Gagaoolala.
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Kirst noong Agosto 19, Miyerkules ng gabi, via Facebook Messenger.
May butt exposure ba si Kirst sa short film na ito?
“Wala po. OK lang sana, kaso, ang payat ko now kaya pangit ang puwet ko. Hehehe."
Maraming tumaba during quarantine. Si Kirst, pumayat? Bakit? Ano pinaggagawa niya?
“Walang makain. Hahaha,” tugon ni Kirst. “Hindi ako nakapag-gym kaya pumayat ako. Pero bumabawi na ako ngayon.”
Gamay na ni Direk Adolf sina Vince at Kirst dahil nakatrabaho na niya sila dati.
“They are very able actors which makes it easier na idirek sila,” pahayag ni Direk Adolf. “I guess iyon naman po ang importante. Yung hindi takot matuto as an actor.”
Siyanga pala, nominado ang Unlocked anthology sa kategoryang Best Quarantine-themed Drama/Feature/Programme sa ContentAsia Awards 2020.

“Cheers to the Gagaoolala team, Jerome, to all the actors, the production staff and to everyone involved who helped make this possible!
