051411-cathy-main.jpgAfter directing popular blockbusters like My Amnesia Girl and A Very Special Love, Cathy Garcia-Molina is working on another promising hit as she finishes filming for another Star Cinema project Forever and a Day, which is top-billed by heartthrobs Sam Milby and KC Concepcion. The talented director shared withPush.com.ph some insight on the storyline. “Yung kuwento namin hindi naman medyo delikado, pero siya yung tipong kuwento na hindi puwede ikuwento. Isa itong kuwento na malalaman niyo na lang ang storya kapag pinanuod niyo na. But more or less the gist is, kung magmamahal ka pa at nalaman mong yung mamahalin mo ay iiwan ka rin naman, yun pa rin ba mamahalin mo? And hanggang saan mo kayang i-stretch ang sarili mo as far as loving is concerned. Kailan mo sasabihing tama na? When you love a person, sometimes masyado nating mahal, minsan ayaw na tumigil. Pero minsan may mga pagkakataon na kailangan mo na magsabingenough na muna. So kelan yun? Or kelan mo din sasabihin na kaya mo pa?” she explained during the promo shoot for Forever and a Day inside the ABS-CBN studios in Quezon City.

Direk Cathy also shared some insight on how it was working with the Sam-KC tandem for the very first time. She admitted that the existing friendship between Sam and KC played a big factor in their onscreen chemistry. “Ayaw ko talagang nagsasalita about sa mga ganyan kasi you know that I’ve been working with many tandems. Mgaexisting and mga bagong tina-try na tandem. Para sa akin, ginagawa yan at nangyayari sa set. Kumbaga,organic siya. It doesn’t happen na ganun na lang, one day nagising sila may chemistry na sila. Yes it’s therekasi friends sila and I’m so thankful and happy talaga na nagkataong magkaibigan itong dalawang ito. But more than that, bago kasi sila sa akin,” she admitted.

The Forever and a Day director also shared how it was working with KC. “It’s my first time to work with KC andbasta ang usapan namin, sabi ko sa kanya, ‘KC ha ‘pag naging artista kita dito, si KC ka lang ha, hindi ka anak ni Megastar. Yung tipong si KC ka lang, yung stripped of everything, just plain KC.’ And I am so thankful to know and see the real her, the real KC. Sobra siyang payak, so simple. Minahal ko si KC sa pelikulang ito. I never knew meron siya ganung loob,” she shared.

Direk Cathy is also proud that KC and Sam were able to do their own stunts in the film without much prodding. “Yan ang ipagmamalaki namin, walang stunt double. Sila mismo kasi adventurous eh. Lalo na si Sam tapos siKC rin naman. And nakatagpo rin naman sila ng medyo kapareho nila so tatlo kaming mga baliw dun na tina-try lahat. Mula sa zipline hanggang sa lahat ng mga adventure sequences. Pati naman si Sam pinatalon kofrom 35 feet papuntang tubig,” she said.

Direk Cathy is thankful that Star Cinema trusted her enough to allow the lead stars to do their own stunts. “Hindi ko alam kung na-gain ko na ba ang trust nila in the past movies that I’ve done. And sa lahat ng pinagawa ko sa mga artista ko wala akong nasaktan. At alam naman nila kung gaano alagaan ng Star Cinema, ng staff ko, ang mga artistang ito and ako talaga. Itanong niyo sa kanila, bago ko ipagawa sa kanila, gagawin ko muna,” she stressed.

Direk Cathy is also proud of Forever and a Day because she has been part of the project from the film’s inception. She promises to give the audience a unique story that’s worth watching on the big screen. “It’s going to be different. Ito sasabihin ko, unang una hindi siya rom-com, hindi rin naman siya drama. I would consider this under the genre of light romance and light drama, parang ganun lang siya. Iba siya. Mahal ko itong konseptong ito eh. Kumbaga itong seed ng konseptong ito, somehow a part of this nanggaling sa akin. It came from a song, but nagkataon hindi iyun ang theme song pero we have a beautiful theme song and tuwang-tuwa ako nabili namin yun,” she said.
