WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13: This is just the opening scene of perhaps the most ambitious school film project the island has ever seen.

Over 1,000 students and teachers were involved in the LipDub film that was shot throughout the school on Monday morning.  The Bermuda Sun was given exclusive access to cover the momentous project. The entire student population, and majority of staff at the school, starred in the eight-minute, continuously shot film featuring everything from musicians, dancers and gymnasts to skateboarders, horse riders and skiers. Following the format of the Internet craze LipDub, the film was set to music with the students lip-synching to the words. Meticulous planning and razor sharp timing were needed to pull it off but after a few takes, they got their film. The film will be available from June 28 on www.warwickacad.bm, the Academy’s Virtual Learning Environment and via www.youtube.com and copies of the DVD will eventually become available for sale. The film was made possible by Northrock sponsorship, Great Sound and Lighting, the Bermuda Train Company, and Renew.
