This is really good. I don't know if he did it as part of a school project or on his own, but it really rocks. I would like to thank fletcher3836 for the link.

I'm not showing you this just because I think it's fun. I'm showing you because this is the quality that our students can produce. It's not that difficult. With the editing software available today, mixing your own music videos is easy. I'm not going to say that the whole process is an afternoon affair, it's surely not. However, it is reasonable to expect teams of students to produce works of this nature.

Next term, for the first time, I am going to try to have my conversation class (intermediate) put together a video. I've been looking for ways to get them more involved and I think that this would be a good method. I'll give them examples of scripts, complete with stage directions, and then have them write ones of their own. I'll put together teams based on who is willing to be an actor/actress (not many will volunteer). I'll also make it clear that we will upload these to UCC (user-created content) sites like YouTube, Cyworld, Naver, and the like. I hope this become more of a motivation tool than a source of anxiety. We'll seel.
