Lip Dub your Music Video


Music videos contain lots of people singing and looking cool.  You too will sing and look cool. Actually, you won’t really sing.  You will pretend to sing. You will lipsync instead!

Lip syncing is hard but is a super important part of any music video.  Later you will shoot cutaway video to support the lipsync, but don’t worry about that now.
