One thing that intrigued me in the talk with Alberto Gomez was the conversation about the conflicts between his creativity and what the industry wants. He mentioned that he writes to please audiences which completely makes sense. As I've been thinking about it, I suppose there would be no TV/movie industry if writers just did whatever they wanted.
I think this applies to actors and actresses, as well. One thing that I remember about Marisa Roman is that she would put her creative twists on her roles that Padron did not initially write. This is an example of when the actress can take the role and make it her own. And it made her character even more loved!
One thing that I hope is that the telenovela industry doesn't overshadow the creativeness of the telenovela, especially telenovelas de ruptura. I think that telenovelas rosas will always be popular. As we talked about yesterday, there are some things that just work every time with every audience. However, telenovelas de ruptura are different and more progressive. I hope this genre keeps getting bigger and appealing to more people. I think that telenovelas de ruptura have the potential to take the creativity of telenovela-making to another level.
