A YouTube Holiday 2018

Happy December, everyone! It is once again that time of the year to come together as a community and express our thanks in the annual holiday collaboration video that I put together — made possible by you! Last year’s holiday collab video was just over 30 minutes long. Let’s see if we can make this year’s video even bigger!

Participating is simple. All you need to do is record a video of yourself (preferably at the length of 60 seconds or less) talking about one of the following topics:

  • Something you proudly accomplished in 2018

  • One thing you are giving this holiday season

  • What the holidays mean to you

As always, consistency is important. When recording your video, please keep the following in mind:

  • Videos recorded in portrait orientation will not be accepted

  • No background music is allowed, as I will be providing the soundtrack

  • Try to record in a quiet, distraction-free environment

  • 720p video is the minimum resolution, but 1080p is recommended

  • Do not include titles, lower-thirds or text of any kind

Once your clip is recorded, upload it to Dropbox (sign up for free here) and provide your download URL in the form below. If you need help with this, please feel free to ask.

Good luck and have fun, everyone! I can’t wait to see the final result when it releases the night of Christmas Eve.

IMPORTANT: All videos must be submitted by Thursday, December 20.
