Direk Topel shares challenges he faced while doing 'Bloody Crayons'

Working with nine millennial stars is definitely not a joke.
 
Ask Direk Topel Lee, who helmed the much-awaited film "Bloody Crayons" starring Janella Salvador, Elmo Magalona, Sofia Andres, Diego Loyzaga, Jane Oineza, Maris Racal, Yves Flores, Empoy Marquez, and Ronnie Alonte.
 
"There was a time na malapit na akong mag-give up," Direk Topel admitted at the film's Grand Media Launch last week.
 
His feelings come from directing nine young stars who are still in the point in their lives where "barkada" and "kulitan" are important.
 
However, he reiterated that these "kulitan" moments happen only when the camera is not rolling.
"Very professional talaga sila pagdating sa trabaho," he reiterated.
 
Direk Topel went on to share the solution he did.
 
"In-organize namin [sila] in a way na hindi sila magtama-tama kung sinu-sino. Nagkakasama-sama sila sa dulo [na lang]. 
 
"At first, I tried to shoot kung sino 'yung pinakamagulo tapos mas maayos. Tapos sa dulo na sila nagkikita-kita. Una sina Janella muna at Elmo, tapos papasok sina Yves... Hangga't sa marami," he related.
 
Aside from that, another challenge Direk Topel faced was creating and differentiating each character the "Bloody Crayons" barkada portrayed.
 
"Kailangan iba-iba 'yung mga nuances nila," the director explained. "So talagang spinecify namin kung anong klaseng tao si John compared to Elmo bilang si Kiko." 
 
"So may mga ganun kaming instances na kailangan naming pag-usapan nang mabuti. Otherwise magkakapareho... For example minsan si Kiko, may eksena na tahimik din o minsan may ganun din si Ronnie, so nagkakapareho. So nilalagyan namin ng devices para hindi magpareho," he further explained. 

"Bloody Crayons" is the ultimate suspense-thriller barkada film that will be out in cinemas starting July 12!
 
Mark your calendars, Kapamilya!
