A few weeks ago I got an itch to make something fun for WPPI. Obviously it had to be video related… so I started thinking of what to make. I have not just gone out and made a fun video for a long time so I decided to do just that.

Music videos dominate YouTube and I can’t seem to stop watching them… so that was an easy choice.

I also wanted this to be awesome so I needed a budget for it… Luckily, SmugMug Pro came to the rescue after hearing about it from Bob and Dawn Davis.

The next step was to put together a cast of people to be in the video, I reached out to a lot of friends and ended up with an all star mega awesome cast!!! Here is everyone that ended up in the video in order of appearance in the Katy Perry Firework LipDub video:

Kerry Garrison
Robert Evans
Christine Bentley
Roberto Valenzuela
Leeann Marie
Kevin Kubota
Dawn Davis
Bob Davis
Jim Garner
Sara France
Khara Plicanic
Erin Youngren
Jeff Youngren
Jody Gray
Zach Gray
Heather Brown
Eugene Brown
Kevin Swan
Justine Ungaro
Jay Goldman
Joy Bianchi
Jules Bianchi
Lauren Hillary
David Esquire
Corey Hage

Because I was so busy with planning the shoot I wanted to have someone else shoot it… someone else worry about operating… so…

David Robin
