We recently did Audio Editing, Sound Design, Music Recording, and the Audio Mixing for this short film to promote the launch of the X1 media pad, a new phone meets tablet computer by Huawei. It's a colourful and glamorous piece of work that follows a man and a woman - the titular Mary Day - who have accidentally swapped luggage and work out the issue during an internet date.
We were able to get the real sound of the car used in the shoot for authentic feeling!
We would like to introduce you to a unique and talented artist from China, Tracy Tan. Her first album called “Ten Years Adrift” is unique because each piece of music was written and sung by her.
As you may know, most pop artists in China and Korea are manufactured artists which means you really don't know who the singer is at all, they have been created by a company. It is rare to have an artist like Tracy who has written music from her own personal experience, and had the songs produced according to her own vision. She's also a great dancer, and will feature that in upcoming videos for the songs.
The lyrics from her songs capture the life of a young Chinese girl in the big city in Beijing, “Dreams are not that easy to realize; though there are tears streaming down your eyes, as if there were no tomorrow; if there’s a chance to escape the sorrow, to make your dreams come true, you’ll find that chance in you.”
Her lyrics shed light on what her life has been like for the last 10 years, since 2004.
No matter how difficult things got, she kept pressing on, and her attitude always reflected her words, “Strive to realize your dreams, and no matter what happens, never give up on love.”
Her courage and determination has brought her to where she is today.
The idea of a dream is rare amongst people in China, so Tracy's music gives a vision of a different and hopeful future.
