Christmas arrives so soon!

When it does it happens in a rush, so much is going on, grabbing your attention and, by the time you look up again, it’s past and the opportunity to capture it has gone.

Most homes have a smart phone or two to hand and those smart phones have video capability, pretty amazing capability to be honest. Nowadays more people are used to being in front of a camera and the lens seems to be pointed at the kids much of the time so here’s a fun challenge.

Have some fun creating a video with the family, kids and/or with friends. You can produce something that is a general message to send out or you may even decide to create a video or videos with specific messages for special people. Do you have family or friends on the other side of the world? Create a video or series of videos of the fun things you do together across Christmas.

You’ll never be the age you are this second again; nor will the kids.

Capture life as it is today and share it with those you love.

We’ve included some links below with tips for you but this is a video about you and it should reflect you, your sense of fun and let it happen, be natural and remember, the best films are shot with more than one take. The art is in the editing and this is just about having fun.

Do let us know how you get on, share with us on social media (you’ll find links on the right hand side of this page or at the bottom on mobile). We’d love to hear from you, to see some pictures and by all means share ideas for next year. We already have a growing list we couldn’t fit into this challenge.
