On December 10, 2010 all students and staff at the Melville Comprehensive School were invited to participate in the school’s first ever lipdub. Approximately 400 students from grades 7-12 and staff joined in for what has been called “the best school spirit activity I’ve ever seen”. (It was -20 Celcius outside for the opening sequence.)
The lipdub was produced by the grade 11 & 12 students in Mr. Coleman’s Communications Production Technology course. The budget for the production was $0, using only equipment and supplies already available at the school. For more information see the CPT class website.
Thanks to the provincial and local media that have covered this for our school: CBC Saskatchewan TV and AM Radio, CTV Yorkton and the Melville Advance. Trooper responded as well on CBC Saskatchewan’s “Afternoon Edition” at http://www.cbc.ca/afternoonedition/
Thanks to the other lipdubs that provided inspiration: Shorewood High, Plum High, UVic (Spain), UVic (Canada), Calvin College, Grand Valley State and Warsaw School of Economics.
