Event: Everything I didn't know about the Vilma Santos #EverythingAboutHer Jan27 in cinemas nationwide
She's the exclamation mark in the happiest sentence I could write. The Star For All Seasons Batangas Governor Vilma Santos admitted she still goes through more than one take shooting the Star Cinema's opening salvo for 2016 Everything About Her. During the bloggers conference at Star Cinema office earlier today she said that she does not consider herself to be a great actress admitting to acquire mistakes while shooting the film. It wasn't the awards or the titles she said but a good story and the contribution of each member of the staff that made her who she is now. (She was able to show all of these in the previous award-winning film Ekstra). That humble response is just one of the reasons why we all love a Vilma Santos.
She acknowledged learning a new technique of film making from Direk Bb Joyce Bernal which she experienced for the first time and acknowledged how it helped all actors to effectively deliver. Gov. Vi also stressed how educated Xian Lim was playing his son Albert in the film and was sorry to him and Angel Locsin at some scenes of struggle. She was happy that the director allowed her to redeem her character using what she practices in real life when meeting a very difficult situation-praying. She said that particular scenes in the movie are real scenes that happen in her office sometimes serving as Governor of Batangas. When situations are too difficult to handle, she leaves it all and surrenders all her pain to God.
Above all, Gov.Vi prioritizes being a mom. She is able to practice making effective decisions from her experience being a mom. The Star For All Seasons even asked permission before making a movie to fellow constituents. She was able to shoot all scenes of the film only on weekends because she serves the Batangas province weekdays. We rarely have opportunities interviewing Gov.Vi and as always, she always leave a lasting inspiration. Thank you Gov.Vi! We will definitely not miss Everything About Her on January 27 in cinemas nationwide.
