Inspired by Ben Grey‘s December 7th post, “Challenging Seconds,” I’ve opted for a sixty second video this year in lieu of a family Christmas Card. Following the rules outlined by Ben, this is a 60in60 video:

  • 60 images
  • 1 second per image (total of 60 seconds)
  • The video tells a story

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Fryers in Oklahoma City!

    Great video! Thank you for the idea of making a Christmas video in lieu of a card. I read your post (and Ben Grey’s challenge) the day before yesterday and put this video together for our friends and family:

    I couldn’t edit it down to 60 seconds, but here is my 60 in 60 version that I posted on Ben Grey’s blog:

    (The artist in both videos is Cursed Arrows, doing a cover of John Lennon’s ‘Happy Xmas’)

    Thank you for sharing your work with the world. I appreciate your opinions and insight on current issues in education, your awesome classroom ideas, and helpful tutorials (I started playing around with ifttt yesterday as well). :)
