The music video must incorporate dramatic elements of pantomime, including exaggerated gestures and facial expressions, and a story/narrative with an ironic or surprising element.  As well an audio clip must be must be synchronized to the movements of a person's mouth, to give the audience the impression that the group members performing in the video are actually singing the song (lip dub). At other times in the video, scenes must be composed of pantomime action that develops the story.

  • The song lyrics must be free of vulgar language/curse words (teacher-approved)
  • The video must convey a basic story through the use of pantomime techniques

  • Two of the three members must participate as actors in the pantomime
  • Props may be used
  • Movements and facial expressions must be exaggerated to make non-verbal communication easy and clear.
  • The video file must be playable by VLC video playback software.
