“Whoa GenSan!” MTV launched on TunaFest 2010 Opening

The 2010 Tuna Festival was formally opened last night by GenSan City Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio at the Oval Plaza stage in an awesome show of talents, colors, music and dance.

The two hour spectacle which introduced to the public the finalists of the festival’s major events like the 12 street dance contingents of the Mardi Gras Street Dancing Competition, the 20 candidates of the  Mr. and Ms. GenSan pageants and the GenSan Pop Idol Talent Search also launched the music video or MTV of the new official theme song, “Whoa GenSan!“. [quote1]

Whoa GenSan!” is a composition of the Centerpoint Band and the  “Whoa GenSan!” MTV is a collaboration of the newest video production house in the city, Royale Iris Studio and the GenSan Tuna Festival 2010 eXperience Organizing Committee, headed by Festival Director Orman Manansala.

The video features the members of the Centerpoint Band performing the” song in various landmarks of General Santos City.  Watching it for the first time last night was an exhilirating and uplifting experience for the generals as Director Heintje Fernandez was able to weave together images of the city’s source of pride and identity with the outstanding on-screen performance of the exuberant Centerpoint who gave life to the song’s catchy lyrics.

The 3-year old Centerpoint Band is composed of Deane, Julius, Keith, Avery, Joshua and Densho.


Their MTV of “Whoa GenSan!” is guaranteed not only to introduce GenSan and its Tuna Festival globally but also to showcase the band’s undeniable talent to the rest of the world and hopefully pave the way towards the fame that they deserve.

To everyone who worked collaboratively on this music video, congratulations and thank you for making us proud of our city and proud of ourselves as generals!

Now watch the music video of “Whoa GenSan!” below and see what we mean…

    Ang galing galing naman. I soo love the airport scene. parang hindi shinoot sa Pilipinas. I just wonder if what type of camera has been used all throughout the music video…hmmm Nikon D90 kaya?

    1. bariles says:

      @Toinks, they used a camera crane for the airport scene! I also love that part! Kudos to Royale Iris Studio Productions for the splendid work!

  3. nj_than says:

    wow… nakaka proud naman…

  4. Faust says:

    Whoa Gensan Tuna Festival rocks!

  5. orman says:

    looking back i thought this wouldn’t happen… our patience and perseverance paid off! ang galeng talaga ng centerpoint band and sobrang hanep ang ginawang mtv ng royale iris!

  6. Toinks says:

    maganda talaga ang effect sa video kapag ang scene ay knunan na naka slant ang sikat ng araw (sunrise & sunset) para kasi syang nasa ibang place kinunan hindi sa tropical location. 🙂 nice! we hope to see more of this and even better ones. congratulations! ^-^

  7. Toinks says:

    Maganda rin ang video kapag wala masyadong cloud formations sa sky…mas na eenhance kasi ang pagka bughaw ng langit kpag ganung naka slant ang sikat ng araw.

  8. Toinks says:

    Hmmm may potential itong Royale Iris sa video production and editng…sana malaman ito ng mga taga ABS para pagawan nila ng marka markang OBB ang mga local programs nila like M.U.S. and TVP Socsksargen atbp.

  9. Toinks says:

    @Mr. Bariles: yes po I think they used a camera crane so give that flying capture effect sa video. Its seem Royale Iris needs more equipment but I’m pretty sure with this work they had madali lang yan mag acquire in the future kasi marami nang papagawa sa kanila. mas maganda if they have this camera track also para pwedeng maachieve ang very smooth revolving capture. way to go Royale iris! keep it up! Centerpoint Band was exceptional as well! They so know how to project with confidence without looking so trying hard. Galing! ^-^

  10. Sweetdianne says:
