Be a library star! Call for Participation in UT’s Lip Dub

On Sunday, September 18, filming will be taking place on the St. George campus for a student-directed Lip Dub video to promote the University of Toronto, and you are invited to participate!

A similar video was created by students at UBC in the spring and has received over 1.2 million hits on YouTube since April. Many other universities have produced Lip Dub videos, for example, Boston University and Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.

The organizers are hoping to gather 30-40 members of the UTL community to participate. Participants would be filmed walking down College Street pushing book carts, holding books and assisting students regarding library inquiries.

All members of the UTL community are invited to participate! The filming schedule will be:

  • 1:30PM – 3:00PM: WALK-THROUGH
  • 3:00PM – 4:00PM: RUN-THROUGH
  • 4:00PM – 5:00PM: FILM

Participants’ time would be required from 12:10 – 5:00 pm.

If you would like to be part of the UofT Lip Dub video please let me know or contact the project coordinator,, directly.

Proceeds from student-secured sponsorship of the video will be donated to The Hospital for Sick Children.
