Dominic Lim, Youngest Director Of Ideafirst Company, Debuts In 'The Write Moment', The Only Romantic-Comedy In The Current Qcinema Filmfest

DOMINIC LIM is the youngest director in the stable of Perci Intalan & Jun Lana’s IdeaFirst Company. Only 29 years, his directorial debut, “The Write Moment”, is now showing in selected theaters as part of QCinema Filmfest. It’s an offbeat romantic comedy starring comedian Jerald Napoles as a heartbroken writer who tries to woo back the love of his life, Valeen Montenegro, with a hugot script, but finds himself getting stuck in the scenes that he himself wrote.

Dominic has a degree in business management from Ateneo and he worked with the corporate world for two years after graduation. “But my heart is not in it so I took up filmmaking at the Asia Pacific Institute,” he says. “Then I joined the Cine Panulat scriptwriting workshop of Direk Jun Lana and worked as scriptwriter and, later, assistant director for their company’s TV5 horror show, ‘Parang Normal Activity’. I also co-wrote the script of ‘The Rebound Girl’ for Regal Entertainment and the indie films ‘Ninja Party’ and ‘Kapitan Basura’. I entered my script sa QCinema Filmfest at sinuwerte namang makuha at heto nga, palabas na ngayon.”

He admits “The Write Moment” is based his own personal experiences. “In real life, I also write about my fantasies. When I wrote the script, sina Jerald at Valeen na talaga ang nasa isip ko. Pareho kami ng vibe kasi nagpapatawa rin ako. During the shooting, they helped me sa batuhan ng ideas at nakakapaglaro kami sa set. We’re the only romantic comedy sa QCinema Filmfest at sana, ma-enjoy ng viewers ang ‘The Write Moment’.”
