See our Interview with the Professor, Nestor Abrogena & hear what he can say about SDA’s Talent.
BASIC VIDEO CLASS BY NESTOR ABROGENA. It’s impeccably impossible for these Music Videos not to amaze you. For one, they are original music composed by CSB Students, themselves, and two these stunning videos were directed, edited & created by students who don’t even fall under the film department. These just prove how versatile & talented SDA students can be.
Under the branch of Design Foundation, the Basic Video Course requires discipline and intensive creative thinking from its students to produce their ideas into becoming a motion picture. It’s totally impressive how students manage to create stunning and professional Videos within a few months time.
Here are just a few of the MANY exceptional Videos shown during the Anualle Exhibit at the Cafeteria during the 3rd Term 2010-2011 :
Five in the Afternoon by Monica Bautista
We find it rather refreshing to hear Monica Bautista sing because she’s got this sunny afternoon vibe in her music that just reminds you of open skies and fresh site of green grass. True enough, visions were created into visuals by NAHO SAKAMOTO & GHIE CHAN(PD), the production designers of the music video. The vintage & feminine wardrobe can be credited to ANNE CO(FDM), who styled Monica’s clothes & for SHEKI VALDEZ for the make-up. It was directed by NICOLO SANTOS(ID), with NOEL CAGURANGAN(ID), as the Director of Photography.
Next Time Around by Fico Reloj
The moment you begin to hear this song by the band, To The Rescue, its not a question that you’d be transmitted into this state where the only thing that seems to matter is the music & images that play in your mind as you listen every word of the lyrics. With the smooth vocals of Fico Reloj, the atmospheric guitar & bass strums of Migs Garcia & Andrai Antonio and the calming beats of Ryck Santillan this song will make you say goodbye that boy band song you were listening to awhile ago.:)
This inspired music video was a project of ARLENE BENSAL(FDM), FRANZ TRONO(FDM), YSAB ABUEL(FDM), BERNIE NGWE(FDM) & ANDRAI ANTONIO(ID)
Hanging on A Cliff Named IV Drip by Lions & Acrobats
As spectacular as Lions & Acrobats themselves, true enought that this music video created by VINCE SANTOS-VIOLA(ANI), MICA GONZALES(FDM), VERNS TAN(FDM), KHEITH CRUZ(FDM) & JEDRICK DY(ANI) trully gave justice to the music by emphasizing the euphoric feeling the song brings with the emotive set and visual techniques & effects used on this video. We love the blue-ish-green light and the invisible drum set, which makes us wonder if we are under a visual illusion.
