Last night, the five videos for the Magandang GenSan Campaign were unveiled to the people gathered at the KCC Convention and Events Center for its launching.
The videos all show the faces, facets and places which, in a nutshell, represent what is truly “Magandang GenSan”: People and Industry; Colors and Textures; Harmony and Fusion; Fun and Frolic and Sun-up and Sundown.
All the five ads were directed by Egai Cadiente. Music was by the combined forces of Egai and Cecil Gao-ay with Mia Rocacorba supplying the vocals. Digital Detours provided the production backend (and the links to the videos below). Of course, they were produced by the City Mayor’s Office through the Tourism, Cultural Promotions and Development of CEMCDO.
Notable personalities like the reigning Ms. GenSan 2008 Romarie Cunanan and her court, the Ms. Teen GenSan 2009 Prexy Whittmer, Ms. GenSan Tourism 2009 Alex Hohe, CEMCDO’s Papoose Salazar and her daughter, the Teatro Ambahanon and Mayor Jun Acharon, among others were featured in the videos. Watch out for them.
These videos, by the way have started airing at the ABS-CBN programs, Magandang Umaga Socsksargen and TV Patrol Socsksargen. Hopefully, they will be aired nationally soon and worldwide over TFC.
If Malaysia has Malaysia, Truly Asia; Thailand has its Amazing Thailand; and Singapore has its Uniquely Singapore, now the Tuna Capital will be known worldwide for its Magandang GenSan.
Here then, ladies and gentlemen are the Five Magandang GenSan videos, starting off with:
HARMONY and FUSION:
COLORS AND TEXTURES
FUN AND FROLIC
SUNUP TO SUNDOWN
PEOPLE AND INDUSTRY
frankly the music was good but the video was sucks..but nice try..
The videos are remarkable! Maganda ang soundtrack. Congrats sa mga gumawa! However, parang kulang sa impact at hatak. Each video has its own taste and feature. Di ba pwedeng pag-isahin nalang then remove those pabalik-balik na scenes to minimize the running time. I also suggest you put segments of those known personalities from gensan. They make our city proud especially sa international market. Maganda ang videos kung sa gensan or pinas lang ipalabas. But it should have an international appeal also. Daghan salamat.
Great informative and entertaining local municipal site. This is the test bed for gensan programs to go international viewing.

Wow…. galing naman …. nakakaMISS tuloy umuwi dyan…..
honestly, gusto ko lahat. it’s something new and it looked fresh. reading thru arfel’s observations is like a bitter pill that needs to be swallowed. unfortunately his observations were the exact observation of a friend who is into tv. there were long exposures of images and in some instances images were found in the other segments. sana hindi na inulit ulit. the music is great — very catchy and easy to recall. oh well it liked it rained on our parade. lingaw gihapon ko. i hope egai’s team won’t mind the criticisms and just work to make it better the next time around…

NICE! I saw the videos in MUS! Congrats GENSAN! MAgandang GENSAN to all!
nice videos! i like it…magandang gensan or nothing!
my favorite is sunup to sundown (–,)
.-= sweet´s last blog ..not in the mood =-.
its nice to see this adds, the last one is a good one, as identity of true face of gensan… kudos to the producer and to Mayor Jun.
OMG! my pamangkin is so cute!!! can i post this to my facebook/multiply? Kudos to the people behind the ads!!!
Ang gaganda tlga ng mga Vidz, Sir Avel. Saw them on TV kanina lang.
Watched all videos and they’re all great! Congrats to all the people behind these TV ads because these videos when watched will surely mark a positive impression to other people about the real and stunning beauty of GenSan.
Just a suggestion, you might want to include Manny Pacquiao in one of the videos so it won’t be too hard to get in to international viewers. He’s one of GenSan’s pride worth noting for. Also, I’m hoping to see a compressed video containing all the best part of each 5 videos. In that way, you can depict GenSan in one, really really great video!
Two thumbs up for this! Congrats Kuya Avel and to all the brilliant people behind! 😉
Maganda talaga! Gusto ko na makabalik sa Gensan!
.-= Robstroy´s last blog ..Nagpa Check-up sa Manyakis nga Doctor! =-.
Anyways, mabuti at meron tayong mga efforts na kagaya nito. Magandang gensan!
Pabalik-balik yong naglalaro ng volleyball at yong sa soldier with childrens playing.. Wala na bang ibang makikita sa gensan na maganda? Maganda naman ang public market natin sa tulong ni Mr. Glenn Gonzales, bakit hindi ito pinakita?
Ang ating mga tricycles, ang mga super daming habal-habal sa calumpang and tambler na yon naman ang nakikita kaagad ng mga tourists galing sa airport.
Ang first impression ko tuloy parang wala ng ibang makikita sa gensan dahil pabalik-balik na lang ang clips..
Bakit hiwa-hiwalay, sana pinag-isa parang station id pero good try for sure gagaya ang ibang lugar…hahahahahaha proud to have this and very good initiative this time we can attract more investor….i suggest get the kalilangan, tuna fest, pasko sa gensan yung pang yearly na ad….for sure we getting more tourist congrats
Saw the clips this morning in Magandang Umaga Socsargen. Egai Cadiente’s perspective is remarkable. He was able to capture the true beauty of Gensan depicting both the richness in culture, the people, the surreal sights in Gensan together with its fast paced development. It makes you proud being a General.
Is there a continuous clip on this???

Ms. GenSan 2008 Romarie Cunanan and her court, the Ms. Teen GenSan 2009 Prexy Whittmer, Ms. GenSan Tourism 2009 Alex Hohe………………………………………………….
hi mr. bariles….correction lang po miss teen gensan 2008 po si prexy and alex is ms gensan tourism 2008…they are all winners last year…….
basig,ang iban lugar diha sa video kay gipang kuha sa SouthCotabato ug sarangani huh?hehe joke..pero nice siya, all of them kay gusto nako..Magandang GenSan!
hi avel, i watched all the videos, they are a good start…good effort but am not impressed, honestly…there is inconsistency in the flow of the script, if there is any script at all…
some footages were featured too many times and too long…
why the use of beauty queens? in the international arena that may be called sexist…
also, those shots of girls shopping, they dont look credible as spenders because they are too young to be making their own money that they can spend for shopping…
individually, the ads might be difficult to place in TV outlets because they are all beyond 30 seconds…unless you are willing to pay more per spot that is beyond the standard length of 30 seconders…
i wonder who approved the script and storyboard? a tighter editing and more footages of gensan’s downtown area, people of all walks of life and major industries will surely help…
thats my piece…end of story…
good try though, am sure it will be better next time…be sure to come up with something that can stand in international audiences…
soundtract is great, though!!!
Ang ganda ng videos at music. Ang cute naman ng inaanak ko sa videos.. Two thumbs up.. =)
