After winning a music grant, An Honest Mistake invited friends and fans to be in their latest music video that will be out on Astro Hitz.TV , November 28th. The video in question is from their latest single “If I Told You This Was Real Would You Believe Me” and as a supporter of all things artsy fartsy, Serge went over and was given an exclusive behind the scenes look of the whole deal.
Of course knowing the manager-cum-significant other to the lead vocal has its perks and downside. For it was probably during 24 hours before actual recording that the significant other ask Serge if he was coming and after saying yes; the other party mention a time. Therefore being the man of his word, Serge went there at that time but earlier.
The location was near the National Zoo at a humongous big house that is WOW and words could not describe it, how on earth did the production crew manage to procure such a place is beyond the understanding of Serge. The house was 3 stories high, contain a pool, a jamming studio, a small office, a jacuzzi and even a gym. One might have had their breath taken away but friends, the amazing part of this was .. this is only the guest house. Yes, only the guest house.
Anyway, reached, park car and went up to see the band members. During this time, some were having their make-up put on and some of their friends and fans were here waiting for their turn to be part of the video. With every band member having themselves prettified (female vocals looks really good here), it was time to shoot the first scene that involves a bed scene!.
Do not think of that kind of bed scene for it is not. In the next scene, band members were place in a closet and was ask to come out. You might now be asking what is this all about, well now; in “If I Told You This Was Real Would You Believe Me” music video that will be out on Astro Hitz.TV , November 28th, this is the concept – a youngster having a rocking party at home without parents knowing.
Soon it was time for the crowd scene that partied with the band members in the bedroom. Before this occur, they (the crowd) was asked to slowly move into the bedroom like soldiers of fortune. It was at this part that Serge was rope in to play part of the crowd and therefore some pictures will not be available as he did not have his camera with him.
Lunch was then serve or was it before the crowd scene? Can’t remember but lunch was Chicken Rice. Continuing with bedroom scene, one of the fans played the role of a snack seller and the crowd shot silly strings from a can. The mess that was made here was something that a iron-maiden maid will quit her job for. Once that scene was done, all of us rested for a bit.
Time was a factor for most of us as the next scene required it to be night time. Thus some of the band members slept, some friends planked and many others continued with socializing with one another and that is probably one of the best deals of the whole event in the eyes of Serge. Speaking about Serge, he was busy resting and conversing with many and then night came and a bollywood-esque scene occurred.
Besides bollywood, lead vocals and the bands bassist.. fingered each other. Do note that both of them are guys and many of us who knew about their recent Thailand trip, laughed our asses off so hard that it had to be riveted back into place. We then had a kitchen scene where the concept was for the youngster who is played by the band member’s violinist to come out of hiding and play the final part of the song.
You could see the faces of everyone, from band members to those who came and even the faces of the production crew was tired. It was all all over after Serge did the final sneak-up scene. There are so many things that Serge wants to say about the whole event but words just can’t describe it and the only thing that he can say is to watch Astro Hitz.TV, November 28th for the video.
This is Serge and this is an exclusive view of what had occurred during the recording and till we meet again, rock on!
