Merry Christmas 2023 from SidebySide Cinema!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your friendly neighborhood videographers! Enjoy our silly tradition and once a year personal video that we share. All 17 years we’ve been together 🙂

This year we used AI for our card and video. We generated the above images with “family of four, dog, cats, and chickens” and these are what it came up with, hah! And for the video, we used chat GPT to write the script and we followed the script completely! Except we added the laugh track. Enjoy!

And here’s the story behind the tradition: We got married November 2007 so by the time we got back from our honeymoon and moving and all the wedding/marriage things, we just didn’t even think about Christmas cards that first year. So in the 11th hour, literally on Christmas Eve, we thought of making that very first video. It took no time at all and it was just silly. Then we said to ourselves, “we should do this every year!” And then we did! They have clearly gotten more involved over the years and we’ve included our kids and animals but they are no more well planned. We always have a whole year to figure out an idea and every single time we wait until the last minute…So enjoy our silly little tradition (last minute as usual)…
