i’ve been doing digital projects for quite some time now. mostly to add to our personal digital art collection while some as wedding gifts to our friends (yet another delayed blog post topic😛). a month ago, wengi, our dear friend, approached us asking if i could make an avp which she and her officemates would in turn give as a birthday gift. knowing that it ain’t that easy to make one, wengi offered to pay for the project (yes!😀). yun nga lang, she didn’t know how much… neither did we.😆
anyway, we delayed the how-much-for-the-project part decision to a later time (which later on she just decided on a certain rate by herself😛) and instead just gave wengi a deadline on when to submit the materials needed (video + photo files). i also gave wengi some tips on how to do interviews and what questions to ask (although she didn’t follow some of those tips.😛)
not only did the materials arrived late (tsk tsk tsk😆), it came at a time i was rushing to finish the new corporate avp project. when i finally had time to check out the materials, there were only a few set of photos plus they didn’t match any of the stories the interviewees were talking about. wengi naman…😛
anyway, i had to make to do with what was given… tutal eh bayad eto.😆 since the video interviews were not that serious, i decided to give the avp a light & bubbly feel to it. here’s how it turned out (the first part was omitted to fit the 10-minute youtube limit):
what do you think?
wengi loved it… both the avp and the dvd label design. her roommate loved it too. unfortunately, i have no feedback yet if the celebrant loved it also. sayang kasi dahil they were not able to organize a viewing party of some sort. that would’ve been the most ideal way to give this avp as a gift.
just this week, i shared this avp with our friend/videographer, bob nicolas, to ask kung magkano ba dapat singil for this kind of a project. i knew that i was “lugi” with the payment i was getting but i didn’t expect i was sobrang “lugi” when bob told us how much we should’ve been paid. at least now, we know better. 😉
wengi, you owe us big time. 😛
