Tonight with Boy Abunda welcomes Paul Soriano, known for directing popular films such as Thelma (2011), Kid Kulafu (2015) and Dukot (2016). This year, he takes on his first romantic film with First Love, starred by Aga Muhlach and Bea Alonzo. The award-winning director and producer takes on the TWBA hot seat to talk all things “first love”—including his life as a director, as a husband to Toni Gonzaga and as a father to their son, Seve.
The King of Talk asks Paul about his profession, inquiring on the best part about being a director. Direk Paul answers that the great thing about being a director is that it allows him to unleash his ideas and imaginations. When Tito Boy asks what matters more between the viewers and acting awards, the director honestly conveys that he does films for himself. He reasons that it’s hard to please everyone and know what every moviegoer would like in a film and so he made it a point to create films for himself so whether or not it flops or succeeds, he can say it was his vision and direction, and is something he’s proud of.
Tito Boy then asks the best and worst thing said to him as a director to which Paul replies that he’s told many times that he’s hard-headed and stubborn. However, he notes that he’s a good collaborator and loves listening to ideas and compromising with them if it’s for the betterment of the film.
