(SPOT.ph) Philippine cinema is now on its hundredth year and teleseryes have been around long enough for you to have your favorite classics. Local music artists have been performing for years, but it seems not many folks are talking about the music video—its origins, its place in the local entertainment industry, and what's in store for the more-than-sound, not-quite-serye format. If you want to learn more about making music videos, head over to Motor Only Sync: Philippine music videos as moving images, a filmviewing and discussion session, on October 13 at 4 p.m. , which happens at HUB: Make Lab in Escolta.
Learn from Auraeus Solito, the director of the music video for "Ang Huling El Bimbo," which won the International Viewer's Choice Award for Asia at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards; Quark Henares, director of music videos "Mariposa," "Procrastinator," and more recently Ben&Ben's "Araw-Araw," and Mads Adrias, line producer for Fur Ball Productions.
Motor Only Sync (MOS) is a term used to indicate that a particular video or footage contains no audio track in sync. Completely omitting sound while recording not only relieves the cast and crew from being very quiet, it also saves time while editing since the editor no longer has to mute the sound.
The talk aims to discuss several questions surrounding music videos, like how it has shaped popular culture, how the transition from analog to digital will change the way they're produced, and how the music video has changed and will continue do so as time passes. Aside from the talk, there will also be music-video screenings and a DJ set by lui, too.
