Quotes from the Singer-Songwriters
“As a former film student, I believe that this project is such an amazing opportunity for the finalists to be able to work and coached by many inspiring filmmakers. I’m really looking forward to how my music video would turn out!”
Daniel Wong (Wanted Symphony)
“To put my music in the hands of aspiring filmmakers is something I’ve never done before but at the same time, I am super stoked to see the raw magic that they can produce. I’m confident these guys definitely have what it takes to produce an inspiring music video and I’m honoured to be part of this.”
“I think it’s important and interesting for this collaboration to happen as it offers a fresh perspective and different interpretation to your song. It also bridges some generational gap between certain artists who have been around awhile, like myself.”
