HAQIEM RUSLI MV
FMC Music’s Mr Ho, had decided to create a new milestone for their company’s video clips. Before this, FMC Music relied on YouTube where there is an indicator for how the video is performing which is the view count. Mr Ho’s decision to try something new requires something that also has an indication of sorts. In the beginning, Arleta approached FMC Music with an idea of creating an AR video clip on the Arleta app but FMC Music ultimately made the suggestion to put the AR video clip on YouTube. After discussion, Arleta created a lyric video using AR to be posted on YouTube.
