Video: “Operation Santa” trailer

Hey gang! Here is a little holiday treat for you. Presenting the very first trailer I ever edited.

I made this in about 1997 — it was shot using any random camcorder I could borrow for an afternoon, and edited with multiple VCRs and sketchy audio software in a weeks-long process that would make anyone born after 1990 break down in tears.

Still, I’m strangely thrilled by it even today. Enjoy:

(And yes, I recycled elements of this plot into a comic strip years later.)
