My entry for the Valentine's Category was actually a project that a few friends and I wanted to work on the summer of last year. We were supposed to do a real life vid + machinima MTV using GE elements, but sadly, it didn't push through as we were busy with personal commitments.

I broached this idea to the group, originally thinking of using the song Inori~You Raise Me Up by Lena Park (OP song to the anime Romeo x Juliet). I admit, I was so into the anime that time that I wanted to create some fanart stuff for both fandoms (i.e., RxJ & GE). But then again, I heard this ethereal song, Feel This, sung by Bethany Joy Galeotti, and I knew this was the perfect song for this project.

And so on one sunny Sunday afternoon, I invited some friends over for the shoot, including the very lovely Sigrid, over to the University of the Philippines. Incidentally, I am also taking up my Masteral in the said school, particularly in the College of Mass Communications, so I knew some pretty good locations for this shoot.

I'm particularly glad that the weather cooperated with us. It was the perfect day to shoot the video, since the sun provided excellent lighting and the cool afternoon breeze kept us all in a relaxed mood. :3

Anyway, since we were just shooting for a 30 second video, I only took a few shots of the actors in specific locations. It was fun handling the video camera again and it was a joy to take videos of Sigrid who was really gung-ho on the emo look for this vid. Hehehe.

And so, without further ado, here's the end product of that fun and wacky video shoot.

Of course, what's a video shoot without bloopers? Here's just a few that I've managed to upload.

The emo actor fails at jumping onto tree branches. XD

Nobody's too emo for a quick breakdancing stint.

UP's majestic trees and verdant landscape also make for a perfect place for some...PHOTO OUTTAKES! (~'_')~

All I can say is...this has been so much F-U-N! Again, major props to you guys who helped out and made this project a sweet success!

Spread the GE lurv! :3
