Family pulls out all the stops for Christmas video

Family Christmas Card Pulls Out the Stops
Many families go to the trouble of making novel Christmas card videos to send to relatives, but the Slade family really pulled out the stops this year. Complete with costumes, camera tricks and the family pets, the Slades don't hold back.

'This year, each member of our family was asked what they would want if they could have ANYTHING for Christmas,' Micah Slade wrote on his YouTube page. 'This video is the result of those wishes coming true!' He also gave a little background on their incredible creation, writing that his family was 'so awesome and patient,' and that 'there was a lot of math involved that I never thought I would use in my life.'

Curious about how the Slades pulled off this wild story? Check out the behind the scenes video right here, and prepared to be wowed.

Creative and adorable! The kids AND cats are great sports and not camera-shy at all. Now I want to watch "the making of" so I know how they did it.

Maybe they are big, but I think camera angles had something to do with the close-up shots. Possibly he used a fish-eye lens on the camera to fit in all the family in the first few scenes.
