Essential Elements of "Apoy Sa Dagat"

Fire, water, light, and wind are elements of Mother Earth which are essential for mankind's survival and existence. Omit any of these elements and we will surely disturb the equilibrium that allows man to live a quality life. But what if you combine all these elements in one television series? Wouldn't it be interesting to watch how the interplay of these elements affect the lives of ordinary mortals? 

Primetime Bida has come up with one such series, something which Pinoys would appreciate, even those with zero knowledge on which elements are needed for survival or what. I am talking about "Apoy sa Dagat", a television series now gaining ground in the ratings game.

Recently, I was included on the list of online writers who were given the opportunity to interview the creative force behind "Apoy sa Dagat". In a way, they are comparable to the essential elements of nature. The directors, writers, production staff, and the actors are basic components of any TV show. Take away any part, and the project would crumble. "Apoy sa Dagat" is no different. In fact, the cohesiveness displayed by all the members of the show heightened the role of each unit in the creative process.

Direk FM Reyes, Direk Nick Olanda, Sir Henry Quitain, Sir Arden Condez and some of the production staff were present on the bloggers' conference held at the 13th Flr. ELJ Building, ABS-CBN Compound on January 9. All of them are not simply proud of the "Apoy sa Dagat" team but are also genuinely happy and satisfied to have such  talented and hard-working people in one project. From actors and actresses like Angelica Panganiban, Piolo Pascual, Diether Ocampo and Angel Aquino, down to the cameramen who all willingly and regularly soak half of their bodies in the water for hours just to capture those stunning but realistic shots- each one epitomized dedication to their respective crafts.( For a moment there, i reminded myself to quit thinking about Piolo and Diether half naked at sea. Yummy!)

"Apoy sa Dagat" showcases the exemplary performances of its stars like Angelica and Angel who portrayed their characters perfectly. Direk Reyes stated, "In the case of Angelica, who played twins that grew up in different environments, she really differentiated her characters' individuality. Parang automatic na sa kanya."

Popular hunks Piolo and Diether also played out their roles to a T. In all, the directors have nothing but praises for all the protagonists of the series, reiterating every now and then the performers'  seamless executions of emotions that need to be rendered in each scene.

The staff and crew are the number one fans and critics of the series themselves, Direk Reyes further  revealed. "Pag-nag tetake kami, lahat focused on what their individual duties are. But after the take and for the preview, lahat sila nasa likod ko at may kaniya- kaniyang opinyon at hahanga ka sa mga sinasabi nila. Minsan tulala at tahimik, yun pala affected na," Direk Reyes elaborated.

Although each one gives their best every taping day of "Apoy sa Dagat" in either Manila or Batangas, time for relaxation and bonding is an integral part of their daily grind. Camaraderie thrives especially during the time which most of us consider as a ritual of survival but which some consider as mainly social, that's none other than  my favorite sosyalera habit - EATING!

"Mahilig kami kumain at ang niluluto namin ay yung nabibili sa locality, like fresh fish from fishermen sa madaling araw," direk Reyes said. As I am writing this, I think I should have asked Direk Reyes right then and there if they still have an opening for a production assistant. Hehe.

I am sure you have already seen samples of  how they perfectly stitched this TV series.  The first few episodes give you a taste of more exciting and also more complicated scenarios in the coming episodes. I am 101% confident that you will get more hooked to the series when the main characters journey into  adulthood, since that's where you will see the true meaning of " Apoy Sa Dagat".

Add more color and thrill to  your nights the cheapest way ever (Wahaha!), make it a habit to watch "Apoy sa Dagat" every day from Mondays to Fridays after " Ina, Kapatid, Anak" on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
