Faith, Glitter, and Glue

How the 2021 Lipdub came together

Despite the barriers on gathering capacities and remote environments, ASB organized the third annual Lip Dub, filming the week of May 31st. “It was tradition. It is tradition to do it. But we also had to mess with it a bit,” said ASB executive board member and senior Abhi Reddy. Usually, Lib Dub filming happens in one day. A camera follows relaying lip syncers through a path of students that snakes around the school. This year, filming took place outdoors in three parts. Communication, however, proved challenging. “We have to use email, and Instagram, and all these things, and we can’t do tons of in-person communication,” said ASB advisor Nadia Bosch. In a typical year, the whole school participates in Lip Dub together at once, which helps get the message out, but with three cohorts, “It’s almost like an operator, right? You’re gonna put this out then someone else says it to somebody, and they haven’t checked their email,” said Bosch. Yet ASB persisted, meeting for hours multiple times a day for weeks. “We had to write out the storyboard, get together performers, put together posters, and even do the practice,” said ASB member and junior Chermeen Pithwalla. Some of the students’ favorite parts from previous years’ Lip Dubs will be featured in this year’s edition. However, instead of the iconic elevator scene with Mr. Harrison, this year’s mini skit spotlights history teacher Chris Estefani and English teacher Mark Isakson. After months of preparation and team effort, ASB worked hard to capture normal tradition in an abnormal year. “A lot of it was faith, a lot of glitter, some glue… maybe paint, maybe a little bit of paint,” said Reddy.
