I finally got the time to blog about the BTS of my WeChat TVC. It’s not the first solo lead commercial I’ve done but it sure feels like it’s my first! I’ve been a user of WeChat for a long time now and when they asked me to be their official endorser, how could I say no! My college friends who all live in different provinces use WeChat as well and that’s how we all get connected- through the group chat! Anyway, I was so nervous during the shoot because the last solo TVC I’ve done was probably 5-6 years ago (I did a Rexona TVC where I said “it’s like a spa for my kili-kili!”). Thank you Lord for all the blessings. Here are some photos from our print ad shoot:
I’m so happy to be able to work with some of the best people in the industry too! Make up Gela Laurel and my stage sister/stylist Liz fixing everything before we start shooting.
It was my first time working with the Mark Nicdao. Now I know why he’s so in demand. His photos are amazing and he works super fast!
My favourite look (and pose).
To tell you the truth, I’m still humbled that WeChat got me to be their endorser. When I started my blog, it was a visual/personal diary for myself so I can document my daily outfits. I never thought I would gain a lot of readers and be where I am now. So now I thank you all for the support because seriously, you guys are the reason why I made it this far.
The cute WeChat message bubbles made into pillows! I took both of them home with me!
That’s one day for the shoot! Now, day two for the TVC.
Here’s our director and assistant director double checking the script.
Me and my sister having a moment. Hahaha. I can’t really remember what she was telling me but she was explaining something about my outfit for sure.
I am a proud user of the app and I’m sure a lot of you use it too. There are so many cool features and it really does make you connect with your loved ones easily. Even though I’m busy everyday, I still get to talk to my close friends and family via WeChat. When I’m out of the country, I get to chat with them for free and even do voice and video calls when I can. Privacy is everything to them too so you can customise your settings.
The assistant director told me I need to extra energetic for the shoot (yes, aside form my bubbly self, I still need more liveliness!)
My favourite shots with the other talents. It really did felt like it was my birthday! Lol.
I had a great time during the shoot- all the people I worked with were awesome (client, agency and my team). I want to share a lot about their other cool features but I’ll just do it on my future posts. Thank you to my WeChat family for choosing me to be your endorser. Here’s the final commercial! I know my voice seems different- I think it has got to do something with their editing but for those of you asking, that’s my real voice that sounds just a bit higher hehe. Hope you guys like it! BMS.
