Mariachis with Seoul

Seoul has become much more international in the time I've been here. One prime example is the growing popularity of Mexican food with places like "On the Border." But something I was pleasantly surprised to see was a mariachi band playing in front of curious but excited locals and non-locals alike.

Alive with the sound of music

Can't believe I just referenced that movie, but have never even watched it all the way through. Anyway...I was coming out of Euljiro 1-Ga subway station in downtown Seoul, heading to the presentations and communications program I run at the Bank of Korea, when my ears were pleasantly greeted by the fun, lively sounds of mariachi music. These guys filled that station area with such life and vibrancy that I couldn't help but pull out my trusty Kodak Zi8 and shoot some video, which is posted below.

After the song I videoed, the organizer/manager, asked about the mic I was using. I was also testing out the Edutige EIM-004 for an Edutige product demo video. Anyway, after a quick chat I donated a bit of money but really wanted to buy one of their CDs to enjoy at home, etc. But since I don't have a CD player, I didn't buy their CD.

Opportunity opens a door

One thing about making promo-videos is that I truly believe a great video can make a big difference for a business. So I decided to edit and send the video posted below to the mariachi manager as a way of saying thanks for putting a smile on my face. I really did love the music and wanted to do something for them since I didn't buy their CD. I guess I could still do that, huh?

The video

If you like these guys, make sure you go check them out around Seoul and book them... or buy their CD :)


Korea Tourism Organization Promo-Video

Strange how things work sometimes. The promo-video I made for Korea Medical Hub was seen by the Korea Tourism Organization. They asked for a video to introduce Korean Traditional Medicine. Normally, I like a more upbeat style but they wanted something a little more reserved. I did the story and voiceover and put together the video. It was pretty cool getting to work with one of Korea's major public organisations.

Humax IR/PR Video

In 2011, I worked with the CFO of Humax to help him with his communications skills. He and I got on well and that opened the door for me to do some other work for Humax and one of it's divisions, too. The following promo-video was created to support the IR team.

Korea Food Safety Information Center Promo-Video

The Korea Food Safety Information Service, now known as the National Food Safety Information Center (NFSI), is a regular client that I've worked with many times on presentation projects. This video was for a WHO (yes, that WHO) meeting in Seoul hosted by NFSI and the Korea Food & Drug Administration (KFDA). NFSI needed a video to highlight its function and to introduce their information collection and sharing database system. Story was developed with NFSI president, Dr. Eunsook Moon, and with a voiceover by me.

Korea Medical Hub Promo-Video

Korea Medical Hub, KMH, helps people from outside Korea get information about, and book, medical tourism packages. Medical tourism to Korea is booming and this particular video was shown at a medical tourism conference in Indonesia.

The KMH team had some ideas about the video, but let me have free reign on the story and style. The voiceover is by me...something you'll see in just about every promo-video I make for clients.
