A few weeks ago, over 500 students at Reading Memorial High School, under the leadership of the RMHS Student Council and Student Council Advisor Michael Springer, decided to develop a “Lip Dub” video. For those of you that do not know, lip dub is “a is a type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to make a music video. It is made by filming individuals or a group of people lip synching while listening to a song or any recorded audio then dubbing over it in post editing with the original audio of the song. There is often some form of mobile audio device used such as an MP3 players. Often they look like simple music videos, although many involve a lot of preparation and production. Lip dubs can be done in a single unedited shot that often travels through different rooms and situations within a building. They have become popular with the advent of mass participatory video content sites like YouTube. (Wikipedia, 2011)”
It was amazing to watch the development of this video unfold on the afternoon of May 18 as hundreds of RMHS students lined the corridors to create the video. The official first viewing of the video was last Friday at the RMHS Senior Class Day.
