[clip: 113414929] Hey there, my festive family, It's time again for the Holiday Video Card project, but this year we're doing away with the 10 second time limit. We've extended it to 25 WHOLE SECONDS! I know, so much time, right? With less than half-a-minute to work with, consider what you want to highlight. You could use time-lapse to show all the craziness and preparation squeezed down into a few seconds, or slow motion to shine the spotlight on a joyful moment. Consider storyboarding your idea and doing a through run-throughs to get it down to a science. Good luck, and happy holidays, from our family to yours! #### The Rules: **+** Create a holiday video card! Remember that only videos made *specifically* for this [Challenge]( will be considered. **+** If you add music, make sure you use a song you or a buddy created, or something from the [Vimeo Music Store](! If you do choose to use a Music Store song, please throw a link in the description. **+** Anything goes for your title, but add this at the end of your video's description: "Created for the Weekend Challenge: [](//" **+** Upload and post your video to the [Weekend Challenge Group]( by *****Tuesday, December 9th, 2014***** at 11:59 PM (EST). Just follow the screenshots below: ![]( #### The Prizes: **+** The winner will receive a Challenge badge on their video, and **free Vimeo Plus** account for one year!

Can I post my entry on FB? I'm not expecting to be in the running, but I still want to be a part of this group. I don't want to break any rules (it has been over a week, but I can wait)!
