I'm not sure if Americans are aware of this Christmas tradition, but I'm pretty sure you are...
To summarise, in case anyone doesn't know, everyone who takes part is assigned a random person to get a gift for/do nice things for. It's a way of bringing communities together and getting nice presents!
At my school's Jewish society we called it Mysterious Moses, so it's really for anyone of any faith. Anyhow I thought it would work really well on Indietalk (I did it on a graphics making website before, to great joy).
Here's how it would work:
1.) Anyone who's interested would submit their name.
2.) Those names would be (secretly) drawn so that everyone had a partner.
3.) Each person would be emailed the name of the person that they have to make a present for.
4.) Peeps go off and make a short, short film as a Christmas present to the person that they get.
5.) Everyone posts their videos here and we all celebrate Christmas and feel chummy!
I would like to reiterate that this game relies on people submitting whatever they've can do in the short time we've got. Shoot it on the RED, on your TSi, on your iPhone, on your WebCam...whatever!
Anyhow it's just a thought. I'd be interested to see if anyone else doesn't think this is an horrendous idea. I'm a very festive person and like to get in the Christmas spirit nice and early!
Sign-Up by 10th of December!
