Director Dominic Zapata has said that GMA’s upcoming romantic drama “The World Between Us” is different from other love stories and shows. For starters, he says, the story is based on the classic book “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Brontë.
When pushed further, the esteemed Filipino director responded using metaphors.
“It’s like you go to a restaurant and then eat that particular dish – Kaldereta sabihin na lang natin kaldereta. You put the same in Kaldereta pero kinain mo siya dun sa isang special na restaurant sa Pampanga and you are blown away by her, ”Direk Dominic told GMA News Online.
Although it has the “same ingredients” and is the “same dish”, their show just happens to be different “because it came in the perfect proportions and was cooked the right way. manner. It was the best ganon lang ingredients, ”he said.
Direk Dominic quickly posted a clarification: he’s not saying this is the best “Wuthering Heights”, nor that “The World Between Us” is the “Best Love Story“, but that it is “The World Between Us” for you”.
“It’s the one in 2021. Ito yung tikman mo ‘to, masasarapan ka dito promise,” he said.
With such a stellar and seasoned cast – Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Alden Richards, Tom Rodriguez, Dina Bonnevie, Jaclyn Jose, Sid Lucero, Kelley Day and Alyana Asistio – the series’ years of collective experience spans almost a hundred years, Direk continued.
“Kasi, we combine around 80 or even a hundred years of experience, all of us put together – we don’t let that go to waste,” he said.
Direk Dominic describes their work environment as “collaborative”.
“Lahat kami, we swoon over this material and doon nag-simula na we are so passionate about the tapos of the project that everyone is giving their influence. It’s like a collaborative effort. So how are we going to go wrong ‘di ba? “he said.
For Direk Dominic, this is what makes the story of “The World Between Us” different and good.
“Tama yung timpla nito in a nutshell. Tama yung timpla, tama yung pasok, tama yung bigay ng lahat, everything fell into place perfectly,” he said.
“Of course we’ll do our best to keep that consistent throughout the show and maybe do our best to get an extension for this show because we like it a lot and the material,” a- he declared.
“The World Between Us” is Alden and Jasmine’s second team following their hit show “I Can See You: Love on The Balcony” last year.
