Challenge #7 Individual Lip Sync!


I am very pleased to announce the 7th challenge which is an Individual Lip Sync! This challenge involves the most iconic project that has been done by GTFers for years. And we, as the judging team, can't wait to see what awaits us in 2017!

A lip sync is a short video, in which the creator pretends to sing a song, presumably accompanied by special effects, dance moves, body movement etc.

2016

2015 thread

There isn't any theme in particular. You are free to choose any musical piece you want, provided that it has lyrics that can be synced.




Rules:
• You must choose only one song.
• The song chosen must have lyrics that can be synced.
• The lip-sync must not be shorter than 2 minutes and cannot be longer than 5 minutes.
• Participants are allowed to dance.
• It cannot be very explicit.
• You may ask for advice from team members.
• If you have any question, feel free to ask.


You will be judged on how well did your lip sync reflect the nature of the song, sync accuracy, and overall performance.

Every member that submits will be given two points.

The deadline is next Friday: 18th August, 10:01pm BST.

Standard rules apply

Tips for a winning lip sync - A Judge's perspective*

There are 3 elements that together comprise the foundation of a great lip sync:
1. Song choice
2. Song choice and
3. Song choice.

Along with rules stated in the introduction of this thread in relation to song length above, these are some other factors that you might like to consider:

1. Avoid songs with repetitive lyrics and tunes - yes, it's easier to remember the words but from a judges perspective, it's boring as hell.

2. Avoid songs with long intros or mid-song breaks. Unless you can find a clever way to distract the Judges from the fact that you're not lip syncing, you may end up looking exceptionally awkward and that will detract from the quality of your lip sync.

3. Costuming and props. Consider whether what you're wearing (or not wearing) adds to your lip sync or looks out of place and distracting.

4. Catchy popular songs are always great material for these things. Further, Musical numbers are excellent as they give both you and your audience (the Judges) added context to your performance.

5. Have FUN! If you don't enjoy doing your lip sync, the Judges probably won't enjoy watching it either so let yourself go! Be funny. Be dramatic. Just have a great time - it's worth more point than you might think ;)

For anyone who may be interested, this is the greatest lip sync that this Judge has ever seen in his entire life - in case any of you might like some inspiration...



*Disclaimer: The opinions presented in this post are the private opinions of one member of the Judging panel. Other Judges may have different or even conflicting views based on their taste in music.

Deadline has been extended so everyone can try and get it done in time and don't feel the need to rush. Do use the time wisely, though!

We extended with the consideration of wanting more quality, assuming you're going to use the time. So leaving it until the last day probably isn't wise ^_^

For this year, I thought I'd school it up on y'all, Beyoncé style :english:

As Miguel has said for his, lip syncs are best viewed in the highest quality so adjust that if needs be xoxo gossip girl

Here it is. Keep in mind that I had barely 5 hours to work on this cringe material, as I have been and will be travelling. Oh, and forgive the shitty quality, I recorded this on full hd :weep: but the stupid editor downgraded it.
