The Making of Charice’s “Louder” MV – Update: Final Video Undergoing Some Finishing Touches

The Making of Charice’s “Louder” MV – Update: Final Video Undergoing Some Finishing Touches

It’s been almost a month since Charice wrapped up the shoot for her “Louder” music video, and the fans are eagerly awaiting its release. Her camp has been really mum about the exact date for the video premiere, and the only date we have now is sourced from a newspaper article in Doha.

According to The Peninsula, Come October 5, Charice’s album ‘Infinity’ will be released first in Japan, while the much anticipated music video of her dance hit ‘Louder’ will be released in two weeks time.”

The first part is true and that has happened already, but the second part about the music video is still not confirmed. So we shouldn’t get our hopes up yet since October 2011 is kind of an early date for a music video release that’s part of a 2012 album.

For now, let’s just revisit the days when Charice was preparing and shooting her “Louder” music video. Below are photos and tweets that we’ve compiled and arranged to bring you some sort of an “MTV Making the Video” feature, so you can get more of a feel on what Charice experienced during the whole process.

Gil Duldalao (@gilduldulao), the choreographer for “One Day” will still be onboard for the “Louder” music video. He is best known for being the long time choreographer of Janet Jackson. He’s the guy in the black shirt in the right-hand photo.

Charice also tweeted how tiring the fast dance moves that Gil made her do. You can see Charice slumped down on the floor in the photos to the right, while in the left, you can see her with two male dancers, @jpSanPedro and @Lakey_Boy.

The Video

Lots of fans were surprised (in a good way) with the “making it rain” photo (top-left) that @XieXieHome posted. The overall look of the video is definitely not what everyone expected, but Charice looks great and surely, everybody is much more excited to see the final mv.

    I will not comment on this video of this song Louder, a lot of you have done that already; you’ve seen this work and it speaks for itself. I’d like to say however it’s costly to make a decent video; it could be at least $300.00 to $500.00 and it takes at least 3 to five days to make. That’s why in the past a video is only done as follow up after a very successful sale of an album or a single CD of a song that has already become a hit; very rarely done to promote the new song. It takes very careful planning, collaborating and financing, and the visuals in the video should tell the story to match the lyrics. It also helps if the video introduces something new in the culture, trends or objects that the audience have never seen before. Video in the(not so distant) past was made to sell the record that was already selling well. My compliments to Charice and all who worked on this project. I hope they enjoyed their accomplishment and learned from it for future project.

    I hope the main model involve in LOuder MV can represent the various colour of human…
    thus the people will interpret that Cha..is belong to the world not only a certain race or nation…
    Unlike the One day MV.. the main role models in the story are Asian…
    Still..Everything about Cha is amazing…

    hmm I guess this video is for the Japan market since Louder is Made in Japan, looks like an all-Asian production.  For her American song videos, I hope she hires someone current to do her choreography, not the guy whose most famous for working with Janet Jackson whose like over 40 years old!  She doesn’t even sing any more, isn’t she an actress now?  “One Day” video did not have a cool feel to it at all, more like Rebecca Black geeky kids were in it, trying to look cool but not lol. Charice should be going for the Mindless Behavior feel in “Mrs Right” video – they’re really hot right now. And she should include cool kids of all colors just like in America.  Sorry, dat’s my opinion if you wanna hate on it, oh well.
