If you have a webcam or a camcorder, some holiday spirit, 10 minutes of spare time and an Internet connection, we have a mission for you.

The mission: Record a video greeting for the FXhome.com community.

Details: The greeting can be related to Christmas, or 2009, or it can be a thank you to a specific FXhomer, or pretty much anything else. It's your chance to shout out to the community. The more in-jokey the better, of course.

Length: Each greeting should be around 5-10 seconds long, with the essential content being short and snappy.

Technicals: Videos need to be under 50MB so that you can send them to us using the ACME Handy Dandy FXhome Uploaderiser. Don't worry about technical quality too much: the greetings don't have to be examples of amazing filmmaking. It's very important to name your video's filename after your FXhome.com username, so we know who you are!

Deadline: We need your videos by the end of December 2nd at the latest.

Er, what's it all for? We're putting together a special video to celebrate the community and we want to feature as many of you guys as possible.

We can't wait to see what you come up with! smile

Hope to get something to you in the next week or so! smile

It'll probably be the epic memory I have of WW2 with Tarn.

or the ELECTRIC DOG... or maybe something else entirely!

While filming part of a school project tonight, we decided to throw together a little 'joke' take at the end, and that's gonna be our video.

You'll see. biggrin

Was able to borrow some poor equipment and did something simple. Yay.
