"Pinoy Big Brother Otso" alumni Fumiya Sankai and Yamyam Gucong said that they learned a lot from the set of their upcoming movie "Mang Kepweng: Ang Lihim ng Bandanang Itim."
During the film's bloggers conference yesterday, December 17, the comedic duo shared that it was a brand new experience for them, especially since it's their first big screen outing together.
"Sobrang dami ko pong na-learn," Yamyam said. "'Yung mga angle angle ng camera, tapos first movie 'yun so parang iba yung atake niya."
"First time din po namin na nasa labas yung set kasi sa 'Home Sweetie Home' po namin, nasa studio po siya. Ang dami ko pong na-learn sa pagbato ng linya saka sa pagbato ng mga banter, ganoon," he added.
Fumiya also agreed with Yamyam, and admitted he has a hard time memorizing lines.
"Our feeling is sobrang different. I feel like mas mahirap mag-memorize ng script if outside the studio," Fumiya said. "Maybe because me and Yamyam are already sanay in the studio [na mag] taping. And also the script, the line is very mahaba, [so I really have to learn] Tagalog."
When asked if they discovered something new about each other, Yamyam recalled one incident where he got a "sermon" from Fumiya.
"That time na mag-aaya siya sa'kin na magmi-meet kami or kung free time namin, sabi niya, 'Yamyam, let's meet at this Japanese restaurant.' So kapag ako late ng five minutes, magagalit talaga 'yan. Hindi raw siya sanay doon sa kanila. Kung two minutes pa, mas okay okay pa raw. Pero 'pag five minutes, medyo magagalit na 'yan. Kaya medyo nasesermunan din ako paminsan-minsan ni Fumiya," he recalled.
For Fumiya, he discovered how smart Yamyam really is. He said, "He is very matalino. He thinks the right way. Malalim [siya] mag-isip. I really learned from Yamyam. If I feel something, he'll advise me and then parang, [I'll figure it out na]."
