Intermission: This Inspiring Lip Dub Video Captures the High School Experience in 11 Minutes
Shot in one continuous take, this awesome video by the Clovis High senior class captures every aspect of high school life.
Lip dub videos by schools are all the rage these days, but this one by the senior class at Clovis High School located near Fresno, California is probably one of the best—and one of the most inspiring—I've ever seen. Set to Bon Jovi's "Livin on a Prayer" and Katy Perry's "Firework," the almost 11-minute clip captures pretty much every facet of the high school experience, and, impressively, does so in one continuous camera shot.
More than 600 seniors spent two months coming up with the video concept but only had two days in the school gym to rehearse the entire sequence. Senior Nicole May told the Los Angeles Times that this year's senior class wanted to leave behind something "that will always be remembered" and would motivate other students at the school. Given the way this clip turned out, I'd say the Clovis High seniors pulled it off.
