Include the family.

Bring the kids, significant other, grandparents, and anyone else your recipient would love to see into your video. The more the merrier, especially for loved ones who are far away. You can have each person share a special memory or play a role in your group’s message. Creating a happy holidays video for your customers? Give them a behind-the-scenes look at the families behind your company to extend your warmest holiday wishes from your family to theirs. Focus on personality instead of perfection.

A holiday video should give you all the feels, and displaying personality throughout it can achieve that. Sure, your video should look great, too, but Vimeo Create’s free holiday video maker helps you with that part. Focus on giving your video meaning with personalized text, special photos, and heartwarming video clips. You can even add stock video clips from Vimeo unlimited library to create the perfect look and feel.

Keep it short.

In most cases, you can send a heartfelt message in a two or three minute video, whether it’s an animated happy holidays video or a live action video. A video slideshow is one exception that might warrant a longer video, but many holiday videos favor short and sweetness. You can edit your video with Vimeo Create’s editing tools to trim video clips and create a perfectly sized video to share on social media or YouTube.
