We are doing a John Hughes high school movie-themed lip dub this year using the song, “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by the Simple Minds. We are going to recreate scenes from Hughes’ 80’s high school movies like:
|The Breakfast Club||Ferris Bueller’s Day Off||Pretty in Pink||Sixteen Candles||Weird Science|
CLICK on a title above to see research stills from the movie.
We will shoot the video during Forum and hope to include the whole of LASA. Everyone is encouraged to take part in a scene representation or just dress in fun 1980’s attire to be in the video.
This is our upcoming schedule:
Feb 25 Wed. Forum – Blocking and positioning practice
Mar 4 Wed. Forum – Dress rehearsal (recording)
Mar 11 Wed. Forum – The real thing! Recording.
We are taking input from clubs, teams, class groups, etc that would like to suggest which movie or scene they would like to create during the lip dub shoot. If you want a say in the planning, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We also need a few special costumes. Please let us know if you have something that looks like any of the following clothing items: Ferris’ vest, Ferris’ robe, Cameron’s Red Wings jersey. We will need lots of other costumes (jean jackets, crop-tops, bras to be worn on heads…) but these are the specific ones we think may be a little more tricky to find.
