Calling out our foreign friends in Cebu City! We are looking for CHINESE (MANDARIN speaking), GERMAN, FRENCH, SPANISH, KOREAN foreigners (male or female) who wants to be part of a viral video shoot about foreign languages.
A little Backgrounder
We all know how living in a foreign land can be pretty interesting, most especially if the country that you are in doesn’t speak your native language. And in certain situations, having a conversation with people who doesn’t speak or understand your language can be awkward and funny at times. But in the spirit of fun, we want to capture those amusing moments that we hope resonates to you and the global community of non-English speaking countries.
What’s the gig?
We are shooting a 3 minute video that features the different languages across the globe represented by handpicked foreign nationals in Cebu City. The idea is to simply read out some famous punchlines/jokes in your native language which are then translated by our friendly Filipino translator. The video will have a similar theme to some buzzfeed videos. Filming will most likely take 4 hours maximum (more of like a 1 hour of filming, and 3 hours of having fun).
Here are some inspirations that we are eyeing for:
What’s in it for you?
You will be meeting some other foreign nationals during the video shoot and some friendly Filipino casts as well. We have to be honest, this video is purely to celebrate your language, and we want to highlight it to the world. The produced video will be published across a few social media platforms like Facebook and Youtube. It’s a great chance for you to get some exposure, and a great excuse to have fun as well. During the shoot date, we will be bringing some food and drinks to make the whole project as fun as possible for everyone. And of course, tokens/ gifts will also be given to you for taking a few hours of your time being a part of our humble project.
