A very good example of a “Lip Dub”

Have you ever heard about a lip dub? A lip dub 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 moving their lips as if they were singing the song while listening to it or any recorded audio, then dubbing over it in post editing with the original audio of the song. It also has to be shot in one scene, without any cuts in it.

They have become popular with the advent of mass participatory video content sites like YouTube. I have known about the one I post here thanks to Javier Aragón, an English teacher from IES Itálica, Santiponce, Seville. I saw it on his blog and I thought we could see it in mine, as well. The song is called The Blues are still Blue and the group is The Belle and Sebastian. And the people who did it were teachers and students from Colegio Huerta de Santa Ana, in Gines, Seville. Special mention to Carlos Trujillo, the English teacher who organised the making of it. Have a look at it and enjoy!
