People’s Choice Award: Locus at KSW and SF Int’l Asian American Film Fest presents the DO IT YOURSELF Music Video Contest.
Directed by Matthew Abaya – I Don’t Care Productions
Art Direction by Angelo Ibañez – ajapopfilms
We got an award winner. Our video was chosen from 12 other teams of independent filmmakers and bands from the Bay Area to premeire at the 27th San Francisco International Asian American Film Fest 2009. The fest screened world recognized films like Tokyo Sonata from Kiyoshi Kurosawa and even Michel Gondry for Tokyo!
We were originally paired with another director but regrettably he dropped from the competition . Luckily our buddy filmmaker “HazMadt” Matthew Abaya was given a call just as he came back from New Orleans. Already late in the game, we only had a little over two weeks to build a treatment, produce, shoot, and edit the whole thing. It turned out extremely well and the people liked it! 🙂
