I watched the preview of Dance on NTV7’s Bella yesterday morning, and was so proud to see two of my friends’ work come together in a video! It’s Melissa Indot‘s third single release from the album MDot called Dance, with an appearance by dancer Maybelline Wong – whose energy just jumped outta the screen.
Mayb’s my neighbour too, and i do stupid things to her like call her frantically when i’m accidentally locked in my own house. Sometimes we do more fun stuff, like exchanging tapau-ed food from Seremban and JB earlier this week XD
Going back to Dance, it’s a song dedicated to Melissa’s mother and calls for all of us to appreciate those who love and care for us unconditionally.
/// The music video takes us on a journey using vintage pictures of Melissa’s fans and friends alike with their Mothers as well as Mothers with their own children, reminding us of the innocent and unconditional love shared. Directed by Susan Lankester, who is known for her active role in the Malaysian film and art scene since 1983 when she debuted in the cult classic “Mekanik” and more recently in the movie, “Take Me For Dinner”.
“It was such an experience making the music video with Susan, as we both had the same attitude towards life and our love for art. We had so much fun with all those involved; I started a campaign on my social media for my fans to send their throwback pictures of themselves and their mums / children. The response was overwhelming with several Malaysian Celebrities contributing too. See if you can spot the iconic Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah with activist daughter, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir and film maker grand daughter, Ineza. Also Datuk Sheila Majid, Sofia Jane, Hunny Hatim and DJ Blink. The photos exude pure love, which is exactly what the song is all about”, Melissa says. ///
