We have started editing Paco Ortega’s music videos

Yesterday, part of our team came back to London after spending four days in Spain shooting two music videos for famous Spanish music producer and composer Paco Ortega.

The shoot was great, both at the Musigrama Studios and on location in several streets of Madrid, and even the weather helped!

We have already started editing the footage and soon we will have ready the two music videos ‘A mi mare’ and ‘Apretaíto pero relajao’ from Paco’s new album ‘Baila por mi’.

Stay tuned for more news to come!

Besides, we are also working on our next project Doris and the Pennies from Heaven, starring Honor Blackman and Robert Goodman and in our crowdfunding campaign to help us cover the shoot and post-production costs, so don’t forget to visit and share!

First day of Paco Ortega’s music videos shoot

It has been a long day at the Musigrama studios, but certainly a productive one. We have finished shooting Paco Ortega’s music video ‘Apretaíto pero relajao‘ and we also shot some parts of ‘A mi mare‘.

Tomorrow we will shoot the rest of ‘A mi mare‘ on location in Madrid, so stay tuned for more news and pictures to come.

Polaris has landed in Spain to shoot two music videos for Paco Ortega

Part of the team of Polaris Film Productions landed yesterday in Spain to shoot two music videos for the prestigious Spanish music producer Paco Ortega, from today until the 10th of May. They are for the songs ‘Apretaíto pero relajao’ and ‘A mi mare’ from his last album ‘Baila por mi‘.

The shoot will take place in several Madrid streets and in the famous Musigrama Studios, located in Madrid, where some of the most representative voices of the musical world, both national and international, have recorded their albums. Just to mention a few, Alejandro Sanz, Julio Iglesias, Paco de Lucía, Alfredo Kraus, Take That and Stevie Wonder have recorded there.

Musigrama Studios were founded in 1973 by the four time Grammy winner Pepe Loeches and Joaquín Cobos and seven years ago Paco Ortega himself was left in charge of them. They are one of the most representative studios of Spain and still survive the crisis affecting recording studios. Besides, they can take pride in having one of the last surviving Neve Vintage mixing tables, which is, as they say, ‘the Rolls Royce of the mixing tables’.

If you want to learn more about them, visit Musigrama and Paco Ortega’s blogs (in Spanish).

A mi mare’ will portray a story of seduction, love and frustration, and ‘Apretaíto pero relajao’ will be a fresh and fun video that matches this upbeat song.
