Bad Lip Reading

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

So hopefully, for my final project I can make a mash up of a politician in the style of the great BLR (Bad Lipreading) videos.

Basically it seems as though its just voice overs – – kill the audio for the video and replace with a voice over, making the poor victim say WHATEVER you want. The most difficult part is actually lip reading and replacing the words that looks like they make sense. And there’s definitely an extreme direction  I can go to, maybe BLR does that. I’m not sure exactly what I want to do but I like the idea of a voice over mash up.

Here’s an example of what it can possibly turn out as. This video is from BLR on youtube.com.

The only problem is finding a point to do the video for the ds106 final project. So I will attempt to tell a story of some sort or actually have a hook or goal to the video. My intention is for it to be a little funny and kind of absurd, so I’ll have to be careful not to go over the top. An idea might to take a politician and change his stance completely, which could be funny. I can just imagine a video of Santorum advocating abortion of gay marriage. Though I might be getting a call from his election committee. I’ll know more (hopefully exactly) in the next couple of weeks.
