“The good thing about being young is that we are not experienced enough to know we cannot possibly do the things we are doing.” – Gene Brown
How dope is this? I hope I’m not alone in thinking how amazing it is that there’s a cross section of our culture that’s getting to make stuff like this in public high school film & media classes. (Note: this was probably inspired by an earlier lipdub vid from some college students…)
On a daily basis I feel lucky to be in the middle of what I’d call a typhoon of media democratization, opportunity, and creativity. But give these teens in Mr. Mitchell’s 4th period class (at nearby Shorecrest High School) a couple of years and some more technology, and they’re gonna bottle up this current typhoon and eat it for an after-school snack. And I freakin’ love it.
I’m totally inspired and optimistic for the future of creativity. And I think you should be too. (Or at least dancing with these kids from Shorecrest.)

Original or not, authenticity counts! And what I also got from this is that it didn't matter if color was properly right or if I was watching it on HD… I had fun, I was entertained. The music plus the visuals took me emotionally to another place in the middle of a workday at the office. Photography and Video have that power. Technical aspects became low priority… Love it!
Amazing creativity and coordination – more than a life altering experience for all involved. Would LOVE to see a bio of the kids 10 years from now. Thanks for posting – the bar is now higher…
thats awesome that it is one constant clip. no screwing up and organizing that many people is pretty rad
