Port Huron Lip Dub

For the past 5 months, I've been on the planning committee for our city Lip Dub. What is a Lip Dub? According to Wikipedia: A lip dub is a type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to make a music video. It is made by filming individuals or a group of people lip synching while listening to a song or any recorded audio then dubbing over it in post editing with the original audio of the song.
This lip dub was made to promote the city of Port Huron. We used the songs, "America" by Neil Diamond, and "Summer in the City" by Lovin' Spoonful. The first part, "America" was filmed along the St. Clair river front. The International Bridge to Canada provided the perfect back drop. This picture, by our videotographer, Scott Bert, shows just a portion of the parkway and participants. There were over 50 groups participating, some being March of Dimes, Parrot Heads, dog walkers, a senior clog group, Red Hats, classic cars, and jeeps just to name a few.
The Red Hat Ladies rode on the party boat, displaying their purple dresses and red hats. What a hoot!
My sister Kathy and I were in with the dog walkers, me with Chip, and her with her cock-a-poo Paddy. You can see my hubby Ken in the window, taking the picture.
Pine River Stables brought this horse painted in the American flag! This photo was taken by committee member Rob Richards.
A boat regalia passed on the river, adding to the water life. Picture by Scott Bert.
The finale was held at Vantage Point, a popular area for viewing river activity. Here, people lined the property and the rocks, waving hundreds of American flags. Photo by Dale Merrill.
The turnout was incredible! This photo was also taken by Rob Richards, the following was taken by Mark Rucker.
The lip dub will be shown on You Tube in about 2 weeks. I can't wait to see the completed project, and will share the link as soon as we get it! In the mean time, you can go on You Tube, search lip dubs and see what other communities have done. Then maybe you'll want to find some interested parties in your home town, and join the fun!!
