About This Project

Happy Birthday America

This video is just us having fun. In the week leading up to July 4th we spotted this mask in a shop window. Straight away we were inspired to film something ridiculous. I think we achieved our goal!

We like to keep our little passion videos to a strict 1 day workflow. Shot in 30mins and edited together with graphics by the end of the day.

Reddit Engagement

We posted the video initially on our facebook to some great reception, but then added it to
Reddit where it climbed the rankings and got a huge engagement gaining 17k views and over 100 comments.
