UPDATE: The Highland Trouveres’ one-take lip dub is being watched all over the world. Z103 posted the video just over two weeks ago when it had just a few thousand views, but now the video is well on its way to a million!
48 students and one Pocatello high school teacher bust out their best dance moves in an eight minute mashup of today’s hottest songs. The catch…they did it all in one take!
The Highland Trouveres, Highland High School’s student choir, took about a month to assign parts and choreograph the moves. The only editing done by directors Ben Fisher and Bryton Nield was for the title slate, color fix, music overlay and a minor speed change at the end.
Fischer says in an interview with the Huffington Post, “It took a few practice takes. We had only done it a few times and the fifth one could have worked for the final draft.” Fischer says he and Nield got the final cut after about eight or ten tries.
No teachers were harmed in the making of this video.
