Two Insanely Cool Schools

It began when students at Shorecrest High School made the following video:

Shorecrest then threw down a challenge to nearby Shorewood High School to top them, so Shorewood created this:

(Yes, they filmed the entire thing backwards!)

This is one school rivalry I enthusiastically support!

Check out what the Shorewood clip looked like as it was being filmed by clicking here.

That is so absolutely ... I don't know ... I'm from Austria, I don't really know how to say it in English but in German it would be something like that: "Das ist so derma├čen GENIAL, FETZIG und ES ROCKT DIE BUDE!" xDD Kind of "It so rocks!" but not exactly. ;)
(Especially the second one but they are both great!! :D)

That looks so cool, and it seems like it was a lot of fun to do!

Those were great! I don't think everyone in my high school would have participated in such a large project like that, but this is proof that we all missed out! I can't even decide which one I liked better! =]

Awesome! Just found your blog. I read 13 Reasons Why last semester for my young adult lit class, and we all loved it! I plan on keeping a copy in my classroom for sure!

I just found your blog :) Too fun! Loved the 80's games, lol.

My husband teaches TV Productions in a high school in New Jersey and they are just in the beginning stages of planning one of these videos. The entire school (and it's a pretty big school) is getting the first 3 periods of the day on filming day to shoot it! :)

The crazy thing is, the entire thing has to be done in one take without stopping and with no editing. That's the challenge! I'll have to post his for you when it gets done... it will be a while, his seniors are heading off on their senior trip this week. But it's already been ok'd by the admins!

Question: Can I go back to high school?

That was freaking amazing! Especially the one they filmed backwards. It just boggles the mind to see the singer moving one way and the stuff in the background doing otherwise. Wow!
