Lipdubs have become increasingly popular over the past years. First of all, you might ask yourself, what is a lip dub? A lip dub is a music video where someone lip-syncs to a popular song which should be shot in one take and not cut or edited!
So why is this something you should do and how can it help your business?
Strengthen your team
A key reason for arranging a lip dub is the fact that it’s a great way to develop companionship and to strengthen a team. Every person involved needs to be open-minded, cooperative and engaging. This is a way to feel more comfortable with our colleagues as well as bond on another level other than lunch-break chats and meetings.
Lip dubbing is fun and only your imagination can set limits on the creativity of the project. Choose a song that everyone loves and get moving. Include accessories like balloons, hats and other fun props. Make sure the whole process from start to finish is fun and not a hassle, because if it becomes a chore, nothing good will come of it.
It´s a good way to practise project management
This project is the perfect way to practice project management skills. There are many things that need to be carefully planned before executing a lip dub, including the music, choreography, timing, purpose, involvement etc. It’s a great way to strengthen your business´s overall project management, recognise areas where your business excels and where extra support it needed.
Opportunity to achieve
A lip dub needs a purpose. The fundament of all lip dubs is that they are enjoyable, but what’s the actual point of the video? For example, as a business you may want to engage potential clients or employees. When project managing a lip dub its also smart to set some goals and be clear about what you want to achieve. Should it be used to showcase on social media? Is the intention to take it viral? Alternatively, is it a motivational or teamwork exercise? The opportunities are ten-fold.
Out of the comfort-zone
Singing and acting in front of a camera is an exercise that is outside of many people’s comfort zones. It’s very important to remember that this isn’t an easy task, it takes patience and practice. People learn from mistakes, so there is no reason to lose motivation over a failed attempt, or 10!
There are many reasons to stage a lip dub with your colleagues. Even though it can be very difficult at times, there’s lots to organise and it takes a lot of practice, but we can guarantee that the outcome will make it worth it. It’s a chance to bond and to show the world what kind of team you are. Remember to have a great time and push through those comfort zones together.
