Ogie Diaz and Mama Loi have both worked with director Joel Lamangan. Coincidentally, they also worked with Barretto sisters, Claudine and Marjorie.

In their recent vlog, the two talked about Claudine’s canceled film titled, well, “Cancelled.”

She was supposed to work with Jericho Rosales along with Joel as the film’s director. 

According to Mama Loi, the producers revealed that Claudine “declined” the project through a text message, citing “creative differences with the director” as reason.

The latter said it didn’t surprise him when he found out about the news as prior Claudine and Joel were also involved in something similar while working on the 2016 TV5’s drama series “Bakit Manipis ang Ulap?”

“Meron na silang history. Kasi ‘di ba si Direk medyo strikto? Alam mo si Direk, halimbawa nasa mikropono (shouting), maririnig ng lahat. Minsan talagang may mga akala mo pagtatalak si Direk, ‘pag hindi ka sanay kay Direk, talagang akala mo palagi siyang galit. Pero actually nagmamadali lang siya. Gusto niya lahat ‘pag nasa set na, nasa set na,” Mama Loi shared.

As production stylist of the said show, he attested how the latter could give justice to 15 sequences all in one take.

“Edited na. Lima ang camera. So hindi ka pwede magkamali, hindi ka pwede mahuli.”

Ogie couldn’t agree more, pointing out that only seasoned stars could work with Joel. 

“Talagang napakahusay mong artists ‘pag ma-under ka kay Direk Joel kasi ayaw n’ya ng mga pulpol na artista kasi kakain ng oras. Lalo na at merong sinusunod na cut off time si Direk bilang siya’y nagkasakit na nga. Gusto niya maaga siyang uuwi din,” Ogie shared.

“Hindi ka pwedeng pupunta sa set na hindi mo memoryado ‘yung linya mo. Award ka talaga,” Mama Loi interjected.

Meanwhile, he remembered a certain instance when Joel scolded Claudine.

“Nasa set na yata lahat ng mga artists ta’s si Clau nasa tent pa n’ya, ‘di pa lumalabas. Ang sabi (ng staff) ilang beses na daw natawag. Ay, si Direk Joel ‘yung sumugod! Pumunta sa tent,” Mama Loi said. 

Ogie then tried to assume what Joel could have said to Claudine.

“Ganito ba sinabi niya: ‘Uy ano ba Claudine, ha? Anong petsa na? Kanina pang nandu’n ‘yung mga artista. Kumpleto na, ikaw na lang iniintay, ano ka ba?’ ‘Eh wala naman po tumatawag sa akin’ ‘Anong wala, kanina pa ‘yung mga staff pumupunta rito. Jusko naman Claudine oh! May hinahabol tayong day effect!’ ‘Yan, ganu’n ba?”

Mama Loi quipped: “Andu’n ka ba? Parang ganyan na ganyan.”

It turned out, Ogie has seen how Joel works on the set of 1994’s “Anghel Na Walang Langit.”

Then, he was playing the role of a pimp while Claudine’s sister, Marjorie, was portraying a sex worker.

“Hinahabol namin ‘yung gabi pa din pero pa ala singko na. So magliliwananag na… Kasi kailangan umiyak si Marjorie habang naglalakad kami du’n sa tabi ng Ilog Pasig. Hindi dapat abutan ng araw kasi gabi ‘yung eksena. Nakakaloka nito Loi, ‘yung kami’y lumalakad (sumigaw si Direk) ‘Cut, ano ba!’ Sumugod si Direk sa aming dalawa. Tense ako. Lumalagutok ‘yung mga mura. ‘Ano ka ba, anong klase kang artista? Sana hindi ka na lang nag-artista. Mas magaling pa sayo ‘yung mga kapatid mo! Kaya pala! Kaya pala hanggang ngayon hindi ka sumisikat. Dahil ‘yung mga kapatid mo sikat na, ikaw andiyan ka pa rin, hindi ka kasi marunong umarte!'”

Ogie admitted he almost lost it hearing his words.

But because of what Joel said to Marjorie, the latter was able to cry naturally and give justice to the said scene.
