The holidays are a time to celebrate and spend time with loved ones. Naturally you’ll be capturing these moments with your camera but there are many opportunities to make video a major part of the season.
Here are some ideas on how to make the holidays better with video.
1. Create a special video for a special someone
If you’re looking for a unique and DIY present, making a video for someone is a surefire way to win the gift-giving battle. You can rescue old home videos, compile footage from a vacation, or event shoot your own music video. Here’s an article we wrote listing some great video gift ideas.

2. Year in review video for your friends, family, or business
Collect all of the videos and photos you can find from the past year and put them together in an awesome highlight reel. We see it as a perfect keepsake since you’ll always be able to look back on everything that happened this year. Imagine showing it to your grandchildren years from now! (or hiding it from them, depending on what you did!)
3. Make a Christmas memories video to save and share
Opening presents on Christmas day one of the most fun and rewarding parts about the holidays. You’ll definitely want to have someone rolling the camera to capture all of the joy and excitement. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up with the next “Nintendo 64 kid” video.
