ABS-CBN’s Lupang Hinirang video
(SPOT.ph) ABS-CBN’S star-studded "Lupang Hinirang" video features some of the network’s biggest stars, including Piolo Pascual, Judy Ann Santos, Jericho Rosales, and Kris Aquino. A montage of shots from local fiestas such as the Pahiyas in Quezon and the country’s famed tourist attractions like Bicol’s Mayon Volcano open the video with Kapamilya stars singing the national anthem.
The video was launched during the commemoration of the country’s 113th Independence Day via a flag-raising ceremony dubbed "Bayan ng Bayani." The event was held simultaneously at ABS-CBN’S Manila headquarters as well as in regional offices in Dagupan, Cebu, and Davao, and Filipino news bureaus abroad, including those located in North America, Europe, and Middle East, and in Japan. Produced by Star Cinema, the video will be shown in select theaters, according to ABS-CBN News.
GMA-7’s 2010 Lupang Hinirang video
People will recall that in 2010, GMA Network also released a cinematic Lupang Hinirang video which aired in SM cinemas. The two-and-a-half minute video shows a retelling of Philippine history with reenactments of Lapu-Lapu’s victory over Magellan in Mactan, the martyrdom of priests Gomez, Burgos and Zamora, the death of Rizal, the proclamation of Independence and the EDSA Revolution in 1986. The cinematic video also received a Bronze Award from the Public Relations Society of the Philippines’ (PRSP) Anvil Awards in February 2011 and a Bronze award in the Music Video category at the 54th New York Festivals International TV & Films Awards held in Las Vegas in April.
