i am an independent songwriter from the Phils. and i want to create a music video for one of my songs. it is a new song and not yet out in any digital platform. the song is in Pilipino and is a upbeat jazz and blues song.
The video starts when a small restaurant has closed and the only person left is the janitor who is left to clean-up the whole eating area which is about 8-10 tables for 4 persons each.
The setting looks an old movie from the black and white television era. The janitor walks in from the kitchen and sees the dirty plates and glasses on top of the tables while he carries with him the floor mop, wearing a stained jumper, worn out shoes as he drenches with sweat all over his face. To help him finish the job, he gets a coin from his pocket, tosses it to the old-looking jukebox, presses the button, it says he picked the song "PATAWAD" and the vinyl is searched and after finding it, the record starts turning and maintains the black and white, gloomy atmosphere of the restaurant. The first 3 to 4 seconds of the music would depict this post era.
As the music quality changes, the place transforms to a bright and classy restaurant, plates, glasses and leftovers still on the tables with white table cloth, but the janitor is more well-groomed, clean white uniform of a janitor, wears a white navy cloth cap and shiny shoes. All though out the song he would be seen cleaning the tables one by one, tossing spoons and forks to the plastic basin and landing perfectly. Plates are piled up on top each one and in order. He dances with his floor mop, swings from table to table, pushes the chairs in place while he enjoys singing a painful, jazzy song about a girl that only gave him false hopes. With this, he cannot forgive the girl and looks for a new one.
Jumping from one table to another, twists around, fixing new table cloths nicely and uses his mop as if it's a microphone. He also moves around the jukebox that now looks so shiny given its old, traditional style. The dining now looks clean and in order. He comes out of the kitchen in his civilian clothes and ready ready to go home but still singing. walks towards the door. locks the door from outside and walks to a sidewalk vendor selling fruits, picks up and apple and says "Mahal naman, patawad". The song ends as he walks away with back facing the audience.
