Teaser: It Will Rain

Hello all! I couldn’t help but share. I couldn’t stop from listening to it over and over again. I couldn’t wait of what’s the finale. I just couldn’t. Haha!

A few days ago, three of my talented cousins decided to exchange talents. I wasn’t there to witness the recording part. If I was? I would have taken photos of the microphone and the headset they were operating. And then I would have better words to express to all of you how innovative they were. But from the descriptions they gave and the expression of their faces when they told me about it; it sounded awesome. I can imagine how funny and great it was. A state of the art music equipment. Comment from Gilles (who grew up in France), “Only in the Philippines!”.

From my Cousin Kent’s FB comments: 

  • ‎*Scotch tape roll and socks as the “Pop-Filter”
  • Headphone microphone as the “Studio Microphone”
  • Tripod as the “Microphone Stand”
  • iPod earphones as the “Studio Headphones”

What do you think? Pretty cool, huh!

At a later part, when I got to my grandparents’ house, they were in the process of filming the music video, and I was there behind the scenes, taking photos of the props and of the location and of them.

The Making
Filming…
The Lyrics
Haha! Gilles can’t memorize his part, so cheat sheet was placed on Lola’s orchid plants.

The funny part was the cheat sheet. The song expresses a message and Gilles has to show those emotions on the camera. Sometimes, when he needed to face up and down, that white little paper transfers from the orchid plant to the ground and vice versa. Imagine how many cuts that would be. Hehe. But we/they had a great time.

Here’s a sneak peak of the music video. I know, I know is too short but what more could I ask? A teaser is always a teaser. One thing I know for sure is I’m very anxious to see the final video. I will share them to you as soon as my cousins upload it in youtube.

Cheers!
