With the support of the Department of Tourism of the Philippines for For the Love of Leyte Music & Arts Festival, 2018.
Leyte is an island in the Philippines that was devastated by Hurricane Yolanda back in 2013. Years later families are still trying to rebuild their lives. For The Love of Leyte music festival has been created to bring awareness and support to the island.
The aim of the project was to show the beauty of Leyte to the world and allow festival-goers to leave their own custom message of support and enthusiasm. The Filipino community is also famous for their usage of social media and to have their own music video was making them proud and they shared it everywhere they could.
Music : "Manhid" by Succubus - A local band from Tacloban, Leyte.
How it works:
A Kinect and a webcam captures in real-time the guests who follow on screen instructions about singing and living a message. It's a sort of karaoke using a famous local song that everyone knows. The footage from the guests is treated visually (by using the depth pass of the Kinect) to fit with the other pieces of videos (shot few days prior the festival). At the end of the recording, an unique music video has been generated and the festival-goers can share it immediately.
