May panibagong patama ang direktor na si Erik Matti kay John Arcilla dahil sa paulit-ulit umano nitong pagme-message at pagta-tag sa kanya sa mga IG posts nito. “Hi @johnarcilla .

May panibagong patama ang direktor na si Erik Matti kay John Arcilla dahil sa paulit-ulit umano nitong pagme-message at pagta-tag sa kanya sa mga IG posts nito. “Hi @johnarcilla . Please stop gaslighting me in your private messages making me feel like I overreacted on your deliberate remiss to mention our film On The Job: The Missing 8 that gave you the Volpi Cup in the Venice Film Festival,” diretsahang mensahe niya sa aktor.

Hindi pa pala tuluyang nagkakaayos ang prized actor na si John Arcilla at ang multi-awarded director na si Erik Matti.

Ito ay kahit sinabi na ng Dirty Linen actor sa kanyang recent Instagram post na “we are friends” at “team” sila ng direktor at ng producer ng On The Job: The Missing 8 na si Dondon Monteverde.

Nag-ugat ito sa tila pagtatampo ni Direk Erik matapos umanong hindi napasalamantan ni John ang pelikula nilang On The Job: The Missing 8 sa Instagram posts nito right after n’yang mabigyang parangal sa Senado last February 22 for being the first Filipino and Southeast Asian actor na nanalo ng Volpi Cup Best Actor Award sa 78th Venice International Film Festival.

Matapos ngang ma-call out ni Direk Erik si John sa social media ay agad nitong in-edit ang IG post nito para idadag ang pangalan n’ya, producer nila, at ang title ng kanilang pelikula.

Ginawa n’ya rin ito sa iba pa n’yang IG posts na hindi pala ikinatuwa ng direktor. 

Sa panibagong post ni Direk Erik, pinagsabihan nito si John na itigil na umano ang pangga-gaslight nito sa kanya sa mga private messages nito. 

“Hi @johnarcilla . Please stop gaslighting me in your private messages making me feel like I overreacted on your deliberate remiss to mention our film On The Job: The Missing 8 that gave you the Volpi Cup in the Venice Film Festival,” diretsahan n’yang mensahe sa aktor.

Kalakip ng post n’yang ito ang photo nila ni Dennis Trillo na kasali rin sa cast ng On The Job: The Missing 8.

Nagmumukhang panunuya na daw kasi ang pauli-ulit na pagta-tag ng aktor sa kanya sa sunod-sunod nitong post na may kinalaman sa award. 

“Your constant posts mentioning me in gratitude for the award over and over again already feels like a sarcastic insulting mention (even if you probably mean it by heart), as if my issue is that I needed you to recognize and thank me in your posts, which is not really the whole point of why I called you out,” diin ni Direk Erik.

“I don’t need you to thank me. Stop patronizing me. Your performance is yours. Thank the movie that made it possible to give you the chance to bring Sisoy Salas to life,” dagdag pa n’ya.

Pinatitigil rin n’ya ang aktor sa pagme-message nito sa kanya.

“Let’s move on from this. And I mean move on from this. As in, now. Your social media posts are different ftom your private messages to me. Stop posting just for damage control,” himok n’ya kay John.

Gusto n’ya lang naman daw ipaunawa dito na ang bawat parangal at pagkilala na natatanggap nila ay resulta ng teamwork ng lahat tao lalong lalo na daw ng mga nasa likod ng kamera.

“I just wanted you to realize that every piece of recognition and accolade we get in the work we do is really done by a team of hardworking staff and crew that made it possible. That your Volpi Cup is not just about you and your talent. That in a lousy movie without the blood sweat and tears of talented and skilled filmmakers, John Arcillla’s performance will not be recognized,” paliwanag ng direktor.

“I hope that with this, you start to realize that anything we get out of the movies we make, no matter how talented we are, is really not just about us but because of the hardwork of everyone involved in the making of it,” saad pa n’ya. 

“You are not the film. I am not the film. A film is the sum of everyone working on it not just you and me. This ends now,” pagtatapos ni Direk Erik.

Kagabi rin ay sinagot ni John ang mga inilahad ng direktor. 

Sa kanyang Instagram post, sinabi n’yang hindi man n’ya naisali ang movie sa kanyang IG post ay nabanggit naman daw ito sa Senado maging sa mga lumabas na balita. 

“It was not a speech. It was a post. The film was mentioned in the senate televised. Then it was on the news that night,” lahad ng aktor.

“So it is already a common knowledge that the Volpi cup is On the Job the Missing 8, Erik Matti and me, and long before even the Senate Resolution was made,” he continued.

“Since it is already a common knowledge. The first post is to thank the authors of the resolution. The honorable senators.”

Humingi na rin daw s’ya agad ng tawad sa direktor. 

“[A]nd I apologized to you at once @erikmatti on my text personally. I even said ‘mea culpa’ even if the plan was to have a three day installation of posts, that could easily be mistaken as an alibi now,” pagbabahagi ni John.

“The second day will be thanking the gift givers. And third day is to post the RESOLUTION itself and that means we and the film are all mentioned in the Resolution and definitely everything will be on the caption.

“I did not post these reasons because I wish things to sink in first. But it seems not.”

Ipinaliwanag din n’ya na ang pagpo-post n’ya ng photo nilang dalawa ay para ipaalala umano sa direktor ang kanilang pagkakaibigan.

“The pictures of friendship is for you and our colleagues to realize we have a good relationship, were not even enemies and we can actually talk about things like friends, colleagues or at least a team because thats how I see us. Why are we exchanging words on social media?” tanong n’ya dito.

“The repost of speeches is to remind you Direk and everyone that I never failed to recognize the Film which means the issue about the post is totally UNINTENTIONAL and a result of misunderstanding.”

Muli, nag-sorry s’ya kay Direk Erik.

“I apologize once again. And yes, I am not the Film and You are not the Film It is not even the Producer’s, the crew or the production staff per se, we do it to live literally and purposely to dream for a better life,” paglalahad pa n’ya.

“We create films and we tell stories to make this world a friendlier and a better place even if its too IDEAL, we still wish it to be, where friendships and forgiveness are more valuable than anything, unless someone commited a crime or a mortal sin.”

Sa huli, iginiit ng Kapamilya actor na hindi n’ya hinangad na mainsulto ang kanyang direktor. 

“I am so sorry for this. It was not my intention but since you were offended Direk Erik, again I will apologize here on social media even if I already Apologized personally on our thread. I also end it here,” pagtatapos ni John.
