In the latest celebrity update, Piolo Pascual’s son Inigo will finally get his share of the limelight. Yes ladies and gentlemen, the actor’s 15 years old son will star in an indie film co-produced by Piolo Pascual no less.
Director Joyce Berna, Piolo’s co-executive producer for the film “Relaks, It’s Just Pag-Ibig” under their studio production Spring Films, said that getting Piolo’s son to make his debut movie wasn’t so easy as Piolo has always preferred to keep his son out of entertainment industry.
“Ang tagal naming niligawan [si Piolo] ayaw niya talaga, When finally pumayag siya, sabi niya, ‘Pelikula lang, hindi siya magpo-promo. Hindi dapat makaka-abala sa studies niya,’” Joyce said.
In fact, the production made it sure it finished shooting the movie in 16 working days only while Inigo was on his vacation in the country.
After Inigo finished shooting his scenes with his co-stars Julian Estrada and Sofia Andres in Zambales, Tacloban and Sorsogon, he is back to the U.S. to resume his studies.
Inigo has big shoes to fill but Director Joyce thinks that as far as acting is concerned, father and son are not that different from each other.
“Passionate siya and nag-eenjoy siya (Inigo). Parang feeling ko meron talaga, pero medyo nagpipigil pa rin. Ayaw niya tumodo dahil alam niyang kailangan pa niya tapusin ang pag-aaral niya. Pero sa’kin screen presence at chemistry pa lang nila Inigo, Julian and Sophia, ang ganda na,” she said.
Based on Director Joyce statement, Piolo is much prepared to be a producer rather than to be an actor if he will give a chance to choose he will choose to be producer.
“Sa’ming lahat [na producers] siya ‘yung pinakamatindi, parang siya ‘yung nag-aral ng filmmaking. Nagra-rushes ‘yan tapos nagko-comment. Sa first project naming [Kimmy Dora], may pa-reshoot agad siya,” Joyce shared.
As you know, Piolo is a very hands-on producer.
“I told the directors (Irene Villamor and Antoinette Jadaone), ‘Sure kayo na kaya niyo ‘yung comments ni Piolo ha. Kasi, sa’min lang, matanda na kami pero ‘pag kinomentan niya [mahirap,]” Bernal states.
Bernal sure that Piolo definitely knows what he’s doing.
“Producer talga siya na may pera at may alam. Minsan kasi producer ka lang kapag may pera ka but you don’t know anything about filmmaking. Dito kasi alam niya. Ang tawag nga naming sa kanya ‘super producer’ e,” she said.
Menwahile, she shared that “Relaks” has no definite date to be release yet as they’re still studying prospects for the film.
“Pinag-aaralan pa naming ang market ng movie. Sobrang sugal sa’min ‘to kahit indie and small budgeted lang,” she shared
