That’s most expensive in Vpop as far as music video productions go.
As you may or may not have heard, Ngo Thanh Van‘s boys are indeed prepping for a MV shoot. Fan casting results were announced yesterday and their first shooting will begin tomorrow (Saturday VN time, Friday US time). The director of the MV, hailed all the way from the States, is none other than Hip hop director and founder of streetwear brand, Grand Forte, Chris Le (C-Le). Chris was discovered by Sean Kingston, who expressed great interests in his graphic designing works on Myspace, and the recognition eventually landed him jobs with major labels including Warner Music, Def Jam & Interscope. With a background in post-production and filming, Chris’s foray into directing also proved successful having already worked with various American pop artists and rappers like “The Game”, Sean Kingston, Christina Milian, The Dream, Ne-Yo, Teairra Mari, Wu Tang Clan and more.
Now signed to Island Def Jam/Universal Music Group, Chris was recently summoned by Ngo Thanh Van to spoil her boys with the ‘C-Le touch’. According to tipped sources, the MV, sponsored by Coors Light beer, is suppose to be Vietnam’s most expensive video to date.
The production will also be streaming the video shoot when it kicks off and broadcasting it live via USTREAM for those curious. More updates on the broadcasting time will be posted via Chris Le’s Facebook, so stay tuned!
