For the first time in two decades, we are about to witness a Filipino dance film that is about to wow even the global audience.
Starring Multimedia Princess Nadine Lustre and total performer, Sam Concepcion, the most epic dance movie of the year, “Indak,” hits the big screen on August 7.
“Indak” is about a simple island girl named Jen (Nadine), who loves dancing, but never showed her true talent to anyone. Not until a video of her dancing went viral online and Vin (Sam), leader of Indak Pinas invites her to come to Manila and join them.
During an interview with “Indak” director Paul Basinillo and leads stars Nadine and Sam on CNN Philippines, the three talked about how difficult part of putting up a dance movie.
“[K]asi it’s already hard to do a movie, it’s harder to do a musical. You have to rehearse and parang it’s a big scene every time eh,” Direk Paul shared.
Despite filming for just 25 days, he revealed that it felt like they were doing the movie for 50 days, since they have to shoot for almost 24 hours a day.
“To put together some of the dance sequences, siyempre we conceptualize it first. We put the dancers together. We have to train for it, before we even shoot it,” Sam explained.
According to him, they are around 20 individuals who are part of the “Indak Pinas” crew and they have to learn how to dance together. “We want to make sure na we’re an international quality dance team,” he added.
The multi-awarded actress also agreed that training is the hardest part of this project. Apart from the actual shooting days, they also have to rehearse and perfect all of the dance choreography.
“It was really hard. At the first few weeks that we were training for it, everyone was so tired. I had anxiety because I couldn’t get the steps, because it was so fast,” Nadine
No wonder why Nadine, Sam, and Direk Paul could not hide their excitement to finally show this very rare Filipino dance movie to everyone. They had really given their blood, sweat, and tears for “Indak.” Watch the trailer here!
