Highly acclaimed director Brillante Mendoza is set to return as hewill once again direct President Rodrigo Duterte's State of the Nation Address (SONA) 2017.
Presidential communications chief Martin Andanar confirmed Mendoza's comeback in an interview on DZMM.
"Si director Brillante Mendoza muli magdi-direct dahil nagpahiwatig naman siya ng interes. Expect another Brillante Mendoza show."
"The director will also adjust some of his shots because some of his shots were criticized last year."
"I don't think that will happen again, iyong shooting up na shots."
Mendoza gained several criticisms for is 'artsy' shots during Duterte's SONA last year including a worm's eye view of the president, some slow transitions, and a tight shot showing Duterte's fists.
Mendoza explained his side a day after last year's SONA and said:
"Hindi naman lahat ng nanood admittedly ay film literate, pero ‘pag babasahin mo iyong mga sinabi ng mga film literate ay matutuwa ka . . . For those who don’t understand those kinds of shots, it was really the intention to make it different from the past SONA."
