There’s this funny thing about fandom, they just don’t care about anything else that doesn’t directly affect fandom. So unless X-member of boy/girl group is directing a movie, you won’t hear who’s directing a film.
But then again, that’s what generally happens anywhere.
I just wished, at least, that labels would care to put this information down in their description fields… to make it easier. I know Chinese/Taiwanese music videos have the information — most of the times — of who wrote the music, the lyrics and who directed all in the video… but it makes it really REALLY SUPER REALLY hard for us, who don’t read character. For a two paragraph post, I have to spend 1hr (maybe) getting the character on paper, then using Japanese handwriting input or the Kanji dictionary to get the characters into a browser, and then search for it. And that’s just the bit where I get the names xD
Anyway, I feel illuminated because I have discovered 5 important names that I will highlight in this post. But since no one is more important than the other, it will be from most recent mentioned in the blog.
First, Bounce (æ¯”å°”è´¾) of Bounce Visual Creative… the director of one of my latest fave music videos: Stefanie Sun’s The Kingdom of Fools, a song which bring me to… Francis Lee (æŽç„¯é›„), a Taiwanese lyricist who wrote Sun’s lyrics for that song, as well as being in charge of many of the songs in BiBi’s NOW/WOW album… as well as the Canned Fish song.
Then theres’ COSMOS, aka.Â Yingzhi Chen (é™³æ˜ ä¹‹) who directed Elva Hsiao’s Let Love Fly, other artists… and has recently directed this new girl group called Dream Girls and their MV for Tears Should Also Be Beautiful… a song which was written byÂ famous Taiwanese songwriter Yao Ruo Long (å§šè‹¥é¾), who is the one who wrote one of my 2010 faves- Broken by Jing Chang.
And finally, another video for Dream Girls (this time I’m Your Dreamgirl) directed me toÂ Yi Ren Chen (é™³å¥•ä»), the MV director of such gems such as Incomparable Beauty and Little Love Song – all by Sodagreen ;D
I feel like I learned something important these past few days of posting CMusic MVs. LOL Too bad I still haven’t finished Chinese homework and it’s nearly 4am.
