Well, it's finally out! JusTiNo! Productions' 5th music video "Everyone Needs" featuring music artist Linda Tram! It is by far the best video we've ever produced! This video carries a powerful message to the world, calling for them to come to God despite the troubles and hardships that each and everyone of us face in life. This music video points to Christ as the One we can look to hope for in this troubled world.
Here's a synopsis of the story. Three individuals go through life facing hardships and troubles. In the end, it is putting their faith and hope in Christ to get them through the trials of this wretched world.
Here's some pictures!
[ THE PRODUCTION PROCESS ]
A few weeks ago, Rodney messaged me on IM and showed me a new music video contest organized by Jennifer Chung, after reaching 100k subscribers on YouTube. The concept is simple. Create a music video of one of Jennifer Chung's original songs, one that visually illustrates the lyrics and meaning of the song.
Knowing that we have been given the chance to express our God-given talents to the world, we took on the challenge. The production of the song and the video lasted for a good 3 weeks. Recording of the song and the music video screenwriting took place first. Rodney, Dileon, and EJ got together to determine the right chords to be used in this music video and at the end, it turned out epically awesome! Here's some footage of the recording process:
Once the recording was close to being finished, we immediately started on the video shoot, which went on for a good four to five days. Thanks to my friend, Prinze Liston, I was able to borrow his Canon 500D DSLR, which definitely helped me get the stunning shots you see in the video. Mike also lent me two of his camera lens which gives that intense depth of field and exposure of the video. Here's some of the behind the scenes footage of us on set:
After the shooting phase was completed, we headed back to my apartment to begin the final editing of the music and the video, and this lasted for a good 48 hours! It was intense and tiring, but we were able to complete it! It was like 2 in the morning in the Eastern coast, and we were an hour away from the deadline, so we were really rushing to publish the video on YouTube. By 12:30 AM PST on April 11, 2010, we successfully posted our video entry to Jennifer Chung's contest!
The next day, we received countless responses from our friends and other people from around the world saying how they've been touched and blessed from our music video! Some of them even told me they were shedding tears because of how touched they were from it! God has definitely blessed them as well as us. I definitely knew that this video will bring forth a message of hope from God. It was an honor for me and the crew to take on such a deed to spread His love to others!
Rose Anacleto Justin, I was blown away. It did made me shed tears. It's amazing what God can do through you. The whole cast was incredible. I'm very proud of you. Keep it up!
