THE MAKING OF PUSONG LIGAW, A SPLIT SCREEN MUSIC VIDEO COVER.
Screenshots of Pau and Mac
It’s been a while since I last updated my blog, so I think this is a perfect way to come back, to blog a music Video that I am really proud of. So far, this is my favorite of all the works that I’ve done. But don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t the only one who did this; we’re in a group.
One week of preparation, three days of shooting, and an overnight of editing. That’s the work we did for this Music Video. But before anything else, why Pusong Ligaw? We choose Pusong Ligaw by Jericho Rosales because we want our singer to be comfortable with his acting and all, and when we ask him if what song he likes or loves to sing, he gave us two songs, one is Pusong Ligaw and the other is.. I forgot but it’s a foreign song.
We listened to both songs then, and came up with a better idea and concept for the opm song. The song is very emotional, we then made a mind map about it, the words that showed up were pagsisisi, paghahanap, naliligaw, gustong ibalik, and many more. We then have a very deep brainstorming and all about our plan for our music video, just like photoshoot, we search for pegs or inspirations for it, and after watching bunch of music videos, one caught us really hard, it’s not a music video but we just love the concept and all, it’s the Splitscreen love story that James W Griffiths made, and then we came up with a concept of having a split screen video, but at the same time, having a very meaningful story. Knowing that our story revolves in “naliligaw” or “paghahanap” or “pagbabalik”, we find it cool and exciting to run the story through split screen, I will not elaborate the story anymore coz’ I want you to watch it and see it yourself!

Our cute and lovely ending haha
What’s funny about this shoot is we experienced all the hassle, First, Pau our girl actress wasn’t allowed by her parents the day before the shoot! So we panic and talk to all possible girls that can act for us, but no one really committed due to their busy schedules, so we were force to shoot on the first day without Pau, we just shoot Mac the whole day and there was another fail, we have a tripod and a dolly, but the problem is the holder of the tripod was missing so we were not able to use it, that’s why you’ll notice that some of our clips are shaky. And during our editing, chan lost his memory card, and that contains very important clips! So we were force to maximize all the clips that we have.
our 30 min nap before going to class haha 15 mins fo Kevin!
With all the hassle and sleepless nights this project gave us, it really makes me proud that we were able to do it in over a week of thinking, three days of shooting, and overnight of editing! We edited it around 11pm by Friday and we were able to finish it by 9:30 am of Saturday, and the submission was 11:30am so we didn’t really have time to sleep. Haha but it was all worth it coz’ our prof really love it, he even showed it to other classes, and he will put it on his website!! That’s why it makes us really happy with the result of our hardwork, first the kfc commercial, then this and last week the anti drug commercial, that’s why we always give extra effort whenever we have a new project because he expect something from us. And ofcourse to our two great actors, Pau Calubaquib and Pierre Macoy, without them this video will not be successful. And lastly, to my two great partners, Kevin Medina and Christian Cruz, I know this is not the best MTV in the world, I’m just proud and happy with the end result.
