Here's an excerpt from his talk with Direk Monski Elagra, director of the upcoming teen movie "Labs Kita! O Di Ba? Okey Ka Lang? Wakekekekekeke!!!" and how it's going to save the Filipino film industry:
Mechajol: Pero teka, sufficient ba na mag-rely sa kilig factor at sa artista lang? Most of the foreign movies kasi, have them, plus better quality and production...Monski Elagra is an oldtimer in the Pinoy film industry. He started as an editor in '80s Tagalog movies, and debuted as a director in the late '80s with his first teen love story, "Love, Never Say Goodbye, My Love..." produced by Harmony Films. This was also the launching movie of Luis Baylon, and the tragic "Starlet of the New Year" Nikki Therese.
Direk Monski: Mech, I've been doing this for how many years na..? Haay... Hahaha... Ang tanda ko na pala... Anyway, I've been doing this for a long time na! And the formula still works!
M: Formula over creativity... ang essence ng Tagalog movie production...
DM: Hey, if it ain't broke, why fix it? If it sells, why experiment? Di ba?
