Some Lip Sync Fun
Art Varga Art Varga is offline August 22nd, 2014, 07:46 AM

This was our first attempt at doing this sort of lip syncing thing. It helped to have a really fun bridal party to help us out. We showed a slightly scaled down version of this as an SDE at the reception and then published this as our "next-day-edit"

Re: Some Lip Sync Fun

Great work, Art.

My only issue is, I wouldn't put it online. If it becomes popular, and gets noticed, you could get slammed with a bill from the copyright holder, like Joe Simon did (Tony Romo's wedding video), and I suspect the guys who did the first slow-motion booth did (they were using Blurred Lines, then it went viral, and the video went offline for a while, came back with licensed music).

Re: Some Lip Sync Fun

Just wanted to mention some shots I liked:

-- opening montage of shots was great
-- liked the bridesmaids' shoes at 1:07
-- 1:10: couple walking down the street with civilians on left of frame -- really interesting shot that I wouldn't have thought to have got
-- GoPro shots from 2:00 are fantastic
-- liked the guy singing at the church lectern at 2:37.

Really? I need to check our their lists a little more often, then. I don't recall seeing Imagine Dragons on there.

Great work.

Re: Some Lip Sync Fun

Thanks for the feedback Adrian. Robert -I hadn't been out to Songfreedom in a while myself and was surprised to see they've added a lot more mainstream tracks. You should check them out.

Re: Some Lip Sync Fun

I've heard some people questioning SongFreedoms fine print. Are we really allowed to use their mainstream music? Especially if it goes on highlights which we basically use to advertise our services.

Am I wrong to be skeptical?

Re: Some Lip Sync Fun

They recently introduced a tiered pricing structure. Mainstream tracks are $50, lesser known artists tracks fall into either the $30 or $10 category.

I'm guessing it depends: if you post a wedding film you made, as an example of your work, that *should* be OK. If you create a NEW video for your website or other advertising, that would be commercial use, and not fit the license.

Cool video. Looked a lot of fun. How do you go about organising something like that?

Re: Some Lip Sync Fun

Andrew- it was actually pretty easy. We just approached the bridesmaids in the morning when the bride wasn't around and told them what we wanted to do. We then snuck out for shots whenever the bride wasn't around. Same thing with the guys but the groom was in on it. Neither the bride or groom knew that we were incorporating into the SDE so it was a pretty good surprise.

They lie, I have a written confirmation from a representative from Songfreedom that they do have worldwide synch rights and are SUPPOSED to have worldwide streaming rights but that depends in which country you live, at least in my country there are several songs from songfreedom that I can't use without any additional licensing and costs, eventhough songfreedom first claimed I had nothing to worry about.
