DULUTH — A video broadcast journalism class at Duluth High School has put together a lip-dub version of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," a video that's already got more than 12,000 views on YouTube.
The film clip, which was shot and edited by student Trevor Jackson, was something that Amy Thomas' video broadcast journalism class had been talking about doing for several weeks.
"There were so many other lip-dubs of the song online, and we decided to jump on the bandwagon and do it too," Thomas said.
She said it was a "fun experience" for those at the school who chose to help lip-sync the song (including Principal Jason Lane).
"The principal was very supportive from the get-go," Thomas said.
She added that it was a good chance for students in the journalism class "to learn some practical lessons on camera shots and angles...we got to touch on many things we've learned about through shooting this video."
