Toni Gonzaga believes she can be a producer, explains venture to producing films
On Friday, December 3, Toni Gonzaga revealed that her director and producer husband, Paul Soriano, pushed her to enter the world of film production, hence the name of her company, TinCan.
In the virtual media conference of The ExorSis, a Metro Manila Film Fest (MMFF) entry, she said, “Si Paul po ‘yan. Lagi po siyang nagpu-push sa akin na kaya kong gawin ‘to.”
Three years ago, Gonzaga became a producer by establishing TinCan, with Mary, Marry Me starred her sister Alex Gonzaga and Sam Milby as their debut project.
Gonzaga stressed that her production company’s name TinCan, symbolized that she could also be a producer.
“So parang TinCan do it, TinCan also venture into something different.”
Being a producer, Gonzaga realized the importance of those behind the camera. She admitted her respect for the production crew has increased.
“Kasi mas tumaas yung respeto mo, paghanga mo sa buong production people. Kasi mari-realize mo na ang kabuuan ng pelikula ay hindi lang sa artista.
“Hanggang utility, hanggang camera man, hanggang gaffer, hanggang light men, lahat importante ang role nila. So mas nagkaroon ng deeper love, appreciation, and respect sa film set nung nag-start na po akong mag-produce.”
The ExorSis is a collaboration between Gonzaga’s TinCan and Viva.
The actress-host recalled that the partnership was a coincidence since Viva’s boss, Boss Vic Del Rosario, talked with her husband regarding another film.
“Kaya rin po naging Viva kasi I remember bago naming gawin ang ExorSis, tumawag po si Boss Vic kay Paul regarding Sassy Girl. Kaya parang pati yung ExorSis naging Viva na rin po,” shared Gonzaga.
The film also includes Toni’s sister, Alex Gonzaga, Dennis Padilla, Kat Galang, Joel Saracho, Tess Antonio, Kedebon Colim, Isay Alvarez, and Melai Cantiveros. Filmmaker Fifth Solomon helms it.
The ExorSis is set to premiere in cinemas nationwide, December 25.
