Laugh. Capture. Create. Share.

We’re in the video making business, but there is something so special about making homemade videos with family and friends.

Every year we compile our favorite video apps to help you capture the fun, loving (maybe slightly embarrassing) moments with your family and friends over the holidays. Last year’s list was fantastic, and this year it’s even better, and slightly addicting.

To make it even sweeter this year, if you share your creative video moment and tag us on social media with the hashtag #ThanksB28 – you’ll receive a special promo offer directly in your inbox.
