YouTube Success

Video discussing Corey Vidal's success with his YouTube video where he lip syncs to the Moosebutter "Star Wars" song. These videos could be a good discussion starter for how you go about building a presence on the web. I've got lots of high school video buffs who hope that they will one day gain fame and stardom via the net. Here is an example of one young man who did just that.

I think I'll show the "Star War" video to my students and build an assignment around lip syncing. (Harder than it looks.)

Short documentary about Corey:

Video he created: "Star Wars" - an a cappella tribute to John Williams

  1. I'd be happy to check out anything your students come up with!

  2. Thanks for the offer. You are a brave man to offer to look at what my beginners may come up with. I don't have another video class until the fall but I'll let you know.

    I still plan on showing your video as an example of what can be done. Did you ever think you might end up as part of a high school curriculum?
