Four puppets popping out of gift boxes

I’m known among my friends for sending out a Christmas / New Year video every single year. It started out as a proof-of-concept, just to test out my camera, new video editor, and green screen technique. I was happy with the result. The next year, I made another one just because I was really amused by a pun I came up with. And I kept going and have now done videos for 9 years in a row!

Sometimes it gets tricky, because I’m writing about the same theme over and over. But it turned out to be a great practice for looking at different facets from different angles. And the built-in deadline also teaches me much about getting a piece of work released instead of tinkering with it forever without ever finishing.

Collaborations and Contributions

It’s also really fun to collaborate with friends or contribute to projects led by other people. Here are a few.

Spooky Ooky Halloween: My good friend Mary was making a music video and asked a bunch of friends to contribute. I will never say no to her projects. Click to Watch

1234 Days of Quarantine: Actual 1234 days would be awful, but this is a parody song of Feist’s 1234. My good friend Sarah Ho leads the charge. It will be obvious which part I contributed. Click to Watch
