Review and 5 Interesting Notes About Director Paul Alexei Basinillo's Movie INDAK

There's always the first time and it is sometimes great that people tend to move out of their comfort zones to try something new, and that's what Director Paul Alexei Basinillo did. Filming for the very first time a very unusual film genre puts him into a more intriguing spot.

INDAK a dance musical film that relates a story of an island girl named Jen who is played by Nadine Lustre, who seeks to find herself by achieving her dreams, that's with the help of Vin portrayed by Sam Concepcion, a leader of a dance group Indak Pinas competing for the World of Dance Championship.

Having Nadine, the Award-winning Actress and Sam Concepcion, the Total Performer made Director Paul do more on the Indak Movie, which he did. Director Basinillo is well known for directing concerts and TV commercials that won international awards. Some of his works are Sarah Geronimo's 24/SG in 2012, the Music Video of Sarah's 'Kilometro' in 2015, and the Bamboo & Yeng Concert in 2014. He begun from humble beginnings from being a waiter to delivery boy to marketing artist, Then later on started his career as an art director and became the youngest creative director in major ad agencies in the Philippines. Now, a full time director.

The INDAK film isn't just a film about dance and grooves but a film that focuses on many different facet of life. The deep meaning of valuing ones root and the opportunity that life gives or more about chasing your dreams. The movie also gave emphasis on learning to stand every time you fall.

Director Basinillo, not new in directing but first time to film a full length movie that is not the usual genre makes him an interesting film director. His views and portrayal of the situation is something different and should be given due recognition. This will let you appreciate more of the film.

1. The technique use in capturing the dance in motion is not new but having it on film as if you were part of it makes it interesting plus the vibe of the music makes your feet move on their own.

2. The incredible scenic view shots and fusing it with the moves of the actors will let you love to see the movie again. Realizing and appreciating more of the beauty of our country.

3. I just like how the acting is delivered, something raw, like you were talking to someone on the streets. Not much effort in a good way.

4. The acting of Nadine Lustre, Sam Concepcion and the rest of the cast isn't as hard hitting drama as it should be because it doesn't require to be that dramatic.

5. Though there were also some points to ponder but those are minor things to consider. Not all films created are perfect, even Hollywood films that we adore do have some minor details that is excused to shot the entire scene.

For me in totality the movie is good and it is not a fly by night film or the so-called pito-pito movie. Director Paul Alexei Basinillo did create an interesting dance musical film, of which can be seen on different cinemas tomorrow, August 7.
