Sa Silid

I don’t think I’ve done a post in a while showing music videos using motion graphics and special effects. Well today I’ll do that.  Today we’ll be showing SouthSuperHighway (SLEx) a band from the Philippines.  The song is Sa Silid.   Though the song is sung in Filipino (Tagalog), it’s somewhat’s understandable what’s the song about through the visuals.  In a nutshell, it’s a relationship where they get into a fight due to the fact the other was seen cheating.  It’s a pretty simple song, but the way it’s sung it’s pretty catchy and sad at the same time.

As far as the visuals go,  It’s pretty well done.  Probably the only thing lacking is some of the animations, but that’s probably due to time and budget.  The look and feel was great as well as the cuts too.  If you really want to know what they used as their 3D software, they used Cinema4D.  It looks like their budget was small, but in the end the outcome was more than satisfactory.  It’s really good that the video graphics industry in the country has grown.  If you’re interested, you  can find out more about SouthSuperHighway at http://www.myspace.com/thesouthsuperhighway or http://thesouthsuperhighway.multiply.com/.

Kicking It Old School

Trying to get rid of all that techno electronic sound?  Look no further.  Check out the Camerawalls.  It’s a sound taking you back a couple of decades when the Beatles reigned supreme.  The Camerawalls takes all that is old new again.  They’re not trying to spruce things up, but just making what is good.

As described from their website:

“The Sight is haunting.  Whenever theband sets up, there’s a rapid time warp – yester years briefly coming to life.

Based in Manila, Philippines, The Camerawalls elevates the country’s plateau as they parade the competencies  of Filipino musicians.  An indie pop trio with brutally honest lyrics and shrewd musically, the swift advent of credits at the band’s young stage is not a surprise.  Their songs are like souls at their most bare form.  The astounding gift of transmuting everyday ideas shapes them into  a potential worldwide wonder.

The good thing is that you don’t have to be in the Philippines to buy their album.  They are available on Itunes and AmazonMP3 download.  Which was surprising as usually importing was the only means of owning an album.  Anyways here’s a video of their song “Clinically Dead For 16 Hours”.
