      Flight of the Conchords Lip-Sync
      HBO is looking for real people to videotape themselves lip synching to “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros” for possible exhibition on various television, internet and new media sites. If your video is selected, HBO will pay each individual $200 for the unlimited right to exploit it in connection with Flight of the Concords, and you will be required to sign a release to that effect. Again, HBO is looking for real people (preferably bona fide fans of Flight of the Concords) to create home-style videos of themselves, not professional actors performing in professional-quality productions.

      EACH OF THE VIDEOS MUST FALL INTO ONE OF THE TEN CATEGORIES LISTED BELOW: VIDEOS MUST BE RECEIVED BY WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15TH!

      SEEKING:
      TWO GUYS- 16-25 years old. Any ethnicity, Classic FoTC /YouTube user demographic.
      GUY AND GIRL- 16-25 years old. Any ethnicity, Classic FoTC /YouTube user demographic
      TWO AFRICAN AMERICAN GUYS.-18-30 years old
      GROUP OF 3 to 8 FEMALES, Any ethnicity. 16-30 years old
      GROUP OF 4 to 8 PEOPLE, 16-36 years old, doing both singing/rapping and back-up dancing. Any ethnicity or gender.
      ONE MALE SOLO PERFORMER doing both parts. 16-30 years old. Any ethnicity.
      ONE FEMALE SOLO PERFORMER- doing both parts 16-24 years old. Any ethnicity.
      GROUP OF 3 to 8 ELDERLY PEOPLE- 70 years old and above. At least one woman. Any ethnicity.
      CHILD -10 or younger. Any ethnicity.
      TWO CHILDREN- 10 or younger. Any ethnicity.

      HOW TO SUBMIT
      Please videotape your group (select from one of the groups above) lip synching to “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros.” The song can be viewed/heard at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FArZxLj6DLk. (YOU MAY NEED TO COPY AND PASTE LINK IN ORDER TO VIEW) Lyrics to the song can be viewed at http://www.wmhartnett.com/2007/07/20/more-hiphopopotamus-vs-rhymenoceros-hbo-version-lyrics/ Please note that one of the lyrics is wrong...the second line should be "My beats are PHAT" instead of "My beats are FLY."

      In these videos, the more choreography and more accurate lip-sync the better. We encourage people to use props such as Jemaine glasses or anything else they can think of that relates to the show and/or particular songs. Creative wardrobe choices are also encouraged, whether they be coordinated with each other in the group settings or simply chosen to resemble Bret’s and Jemaine’s clothing. Back yards and front porches are also acceptable settings in addition to bedrooms, living rooms and rec. rooms.

      You may either EMAIL YOUR VIDEO to kellilernercasting@gmail.com or send a hard copy DVD to:
      HBO
