LionhearTVSeptember 1, 2022

On August 3, director GB Sampedro admitted he got bashed online for doing sexy films.

At the media conference for Purification, Sampedro recounted the negative comments thrown at him online while stressing that he’s only doing his job.

“Kahit naman before eh, parang nakakatanggap ako minsan ng mga PM ‘yung mga minsan kung sino-sino magme-message kapag may post tayo tungkol doon sa ginagawa kong trabaho. Pero, para sa akin, trabaho lang naman ang ginagawa namin.”

He then cited that he chooses to ignore the online bashing, reiterating that filmmaking is his livelihood.

“Kumbaga may mga istorya lang naman kaming pwedeng ikwento at tingin naman namin, maa-appreciate ng mga tao kapag napanood nila. So para sa akin, deadma lang doon sa mga nagco-comments kasi hindi naman din sila ang nagbibigay ng hanap buhay sa amin. Kami ay nagtra-trabaho lang. Trabaho lang ‘to.”

However, he confessed that he had received comments that went too far.

“Minsan ‘yung parang sasabihin nila–parang pagkatao mo na ‘yung inaano eh, naparang napaka-bastos mo, napakahilig mo sa sex, ganyan. Para sa akin naman eh, hindi ninyo naman ako kilala personally. So parang sino kayo to judge?”

He then defended Purificacion‘s poster following some criticisms, noting that viewers wouldn’t be able to judge a film based on a poster.

“Actually, ‘yung poster namin, sa marketing ‘yan, ‘yung poster, although may mga nagtanong sa akin kung anong magandang elementong ilagay, so nagbigay lang tayo ng input doon. 

“Para sa akin, I don’t think naman na majud-judge mo ‘yung pelikula based doon sa nakita mo sa poster. So parang, malalaman mo kung bakit ganon ‘yung poster. Mas magandang panoorin ‘yung pelikula, I don’t think negative naman siya para doon sa pelikula–‘yung type ng poster na nagawa namin.”

Purificacion stars Josef Elizalde and Cara Gonzales alongside the supporting cast, which includes Ava Mendez, Quinn Carillo, Stephanie Raz, and Kat Dovey. The sexy thriller directed by GB Sampedro is currently available via Vivamax starting August 5, 2022.
