Six local bands. Six local filmmakers. Locus Arts has teamed them up at random to produce seven no budget videos, and the teams are working frantically to beat the deadline and make it to the first Do It Yourself Music Video Premiere Night on Friday, February 15th, 2008. We'll not only premier the seven music videos, but also have performances from the bands and commentary from the video directors.

Co-presented by the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, the new videos will premiere simultaneously at www.asianamericanmedia.org. Through February 29th, the videos will be participating in an exciting online contest we've put together: Visitors to the site will be able to vote on their favorite Asian American music video. The public's favorite music video will win a spot in Music Video Asia and will be shown the evening of March 19th, during the 26th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (March 13-23, 2008).

Please help support your local D.I.Y. Asian American artists!

Brought to you by the following filmmakers:
Bernard Badion
Yasmine Gomez
Wilson Wong
Matt Abaya
Jasper Pugau
Jason Nou

Featuring the music of:
The Gold Medalists
