Speech Karaoke Action Group will host a workshop and club event at Rotterdam film festival 2014! The workshop takes place on Sunday January 26th and the Karaoke Club on Wednesday January 29th at 8pm. Welcome!

Speech Karaoke works similar to a traditional karaoke. In a relaxed bar atmosphere one can choose a speech from a karaoke booklet that contains a wide range of speeches: from the obvious classics to legendary movie speeches to the most obscure Finnish wedding speech. Our real karaoke host from Finland Mr.  Julius Valve welcomes anyone to step on the speakers desk and deliver the speech of their choice.

Two days before the event The Speech Karaoke Action Group starts updating the karaoke system with the speech choices of the festival visitors. Anyone can step in to the workshop  and spend some time with a speech you want to contribute and turn it into a video. Practicing the delivery of the speech is part of the steps. You can come with a speech or just spend time finding one. You can even write your own speech! No technical skills needed – The Speech Karaoke Action Group is there to guide you through the steps! The speeches made in the workshop will be archived into the karaoke system and they will travel the world! The premier of the new videos is naturally the speech karaoke event at Rotterdam Film Festival (see info above). You can walk in any time of the workshop time.

Eurpoean Speeches on Focus!
Celebrating  the official theme  of the Rotterdam Film Festival, The Speech Karaoke  Action Group  encourages the visitors to re-interprete especially  European Speeches in the workshop and the event! How does it feel to deliver the wedding speech of Prince Daniel, and how about stepping to the shoes of Churchill for a  moment? Which European speech have provoked or touched you so much that you wanna include it to the karaoke system?
