Kilala ang pangalan ni Direk Nick Olanka bilang writer who is one of the ‘brains’ behind the success of the award-winning indie movie Adela.
Ganunpaman, natuklasan ang promise niya bilang director nang magdirek siya ng episode about forbidden love sa top-rater na drama anthology Maalala Mo Kaya.
The episode about forbidden love starred Kim Chiu and Carlo Aquino.
In Cinco, he directs the episode Mukha na sa iisang silid lang naganap. Naka-focus din lang sa iisang tao na ginagampanan ni Mariel Rodriguez. Mariel’s co-stars are Nanding Josef at Ketchup Eusebio, among others.
Direk Cathy Garcia, the only one with more-than-enough credentials (box-office director is just one of them) na featured sa Cinco, described Direk Nick as a cool director. Hindi raw kasi ito sumisigaw o kaya’y nara-rattle.
And Direk Cathy should know. Being, wika nga, the most veteran director in the group of five (directors), Star Cinema, likewise, assigned her to (oversee) the first-time megmen.
From Direk Cathy, she suggests na panoorin ang Cinco from beginning to end, dahil dito matutuklasan kung anong unifying element mayroon ang kabuuan ng movie.
