Ok, every time I post one of these college lipdub videos, I get emails and Twitters saying stop it with the lipdubs. I get it – but this one was pretty interesting. Created by students at the Universitat De Vic in Spain, it takes lipdubs to a new level of planning and people.
What’s remarkable about this video is the sheer scale of it – over 900 people participated in it. That’s pretty astonishing.
I’m going to substract 2 points because there was a cut in the middle, but other than that, nicely done.
Unless a group releases a video that features more than 900 people, or does a lipdub to a song by Slayer or Wu-Tang Clan, I’m not posting it from here on out.
There have been a bunch of lipdub videos being posted by college students lately, and here’s another to add to the pile.
This one was created by students in Dr. Caroline Kaltefleiter’s New Media Communication at SUNY Cortland. Students in the course took on various roles for the video, including writing and producing the song in the video, writing, PR, choreography, shooing and editing – so start to finish this is all student work. Students in the class are encouraged to analyze the theories surrounding participatory culture and apply them to the lip dub project.
Great to see projects like this being integrated into the curriculum. In my new media class back in college, we learned Corel Paint. Seriously.
Nice job to everyone in this course at SUNY Cortland.
