What I Want, You've Got

So, I'm breaking the whole themed posts, but it's my blog and I do what I want. Plus, I wanted you guys to watch this awesome video. It was made at Shorewood High School (in Shoreline, WA) for a lip sync competition that another Shoreline school (Shorecrest) challenged them to. The whole video was shot BACKWARDS. Also, it's one continuous shot.

It's amazing that this was made by a high school film class. I wish I could have done something like this in high school.


In the interest of fairness (this being a competition and all) I'll post Shorecrest's video as well.

What do you guys think? Which one do you like best? I like the one from Shorewood better. I think the song choice and the fact that it's shot backwards is what makes me like it more.


The only time I saw something filmed in one continuous shot was a movie I watched called Nine Lives. Which is definitely worth looking up (I think it's even on YouTube [and not to be confused with the movie Nine Lives that has Paris Hilton in it]). It's about the lives of nine different women (hence the name) and each segment is shot in one continuous shot, it's really amazing.

Anyhoo, hope you enjoyed the video.

I like the first one as well. But I gotta bored are those people in Washington?! Haha, nah just kidding. Is that like an annual competition type of thing? Battle it out against schools. :P

I agree with you, the first one is way cool. Was the first one in response to the second one, or the other way around?
I keep regretting not being able to pack my video camera and bringing it to's getting cold in a storage locker down there.

Oh and is "Nine Lives" a full length movie? It sounds interesting, I'll check it out.
