Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla believe they could have offered better episodes in La Luna Sangre if there was no time pressure during their tapings.
At the thanksgiving press conference of their teleserye last week, the Kapamilya love team was asked about the challenges they encountered while doing ABS-CBN's prime-time fantasy series.
“Mayroon na ako agad naisip,” Kathryn said.
She went on to say how lack of enough time affected their crew as well as the episodes that would be aired on TV.
The 21-year-old actress explained, “Siguro yung oras, yun ang pinakakalaban naming lahat dito, yung for airing...
“Kunwari, may isang scene kaming gustong gawin, mapu-frustrate ka na kung mayroon lang kaming enough time para mas pagandahin with the effects and everything.
“Alam ko napu-frustrate din yung mga nanonood.
“Pero they have to understand kung saan kami nanggagaling.
“Yung mga tao sa taping halos mamatay-matay na, halos di na sila nakakauwi para lang maiere.
“Yun lang ang pinakamalaking challenge sa show na ito.”
She also recalled, “Imagine, nag-start kami ng airing na two weeks pa lang ang pondo namin.
“So, 'yong buong show na yun, inabutan na kami ng two weeks for airing, for airing, for airing.
“Mayroon kaming isang time o maraming times na yung isang buong episode [na shino-shoot] mostly for airing.
“Yun yung pinakamahirap, hindi lang sa amin, nahihirapan ang mga tao, nahihirapan ang mga directors.”
Kathryn said they could have done better if there was enough time to do each episode of La Luna Sangre.
“Mapu-frustrate ka na pwede mo pa 'tong pagandahin,” she said.
“Kaya lang, dahil limited ang time, ito lang ang maibibigay mo.
“Hanggang ngayon, kung may oras lang kami para mas pagandahin itong Apocalypse, we'll give it to them.
“But with the limited time, yun ang pinaka-challenging.”
Daniel shared the same sentiment, “Wala namang mahirap kung may oras, di ba? Yun lang naman.”
Despite this, the 22-year-old actor still took pride in their TV show, especially those who worked behind the scenes.
He said, “Lahat naman kami, sa set namin, lahat ng crew, lahat ng direktor, 100 percent pa rin ang ibinibigay namin para mapaganda [ang programa].
“Nangyari na, e. There's no turning back. Ano pa ang gagawin natin?
“So, trinabaho namin nang trinabaho 'yon and hindi siya naging madali, ang hirap gumawa...”
He further stressed, “Imagine sa isang pelikula, ilang taon, ilang araw, ilang buwan nila ginagawa ang effects.
“Sa atin, overnight, minsan nga, ie-ere na mamaya yung effects.
“Kaya natin sumabay, e, wala namang problema sa effects natin, kaya nating gawin 'yon.
“The problem is the time, yun lang.”
Nevertheless, both Kathryn and Daniel hope to give the best to avid viewers of La Luna Sangre.
