When it comes to decorating your home for the holidays, people tend to go overboard. And while it starts out innocently enough with some lights and a wreath, it usually doesn’t take long for things to escalate into a Clark Griswald-esque situation.
If you or someone you know is in the process of creating a spectacular holiday display for your community, and you happen to be an aspiring filmmaker, you should consider documenting the experience and submitting it to Mega Joy: A Collaborative Film Project on the subject of Christmas light enthusiasts. The winning submissions will be edited into in a feature-length documentary on the subject and their directors will receive a contract for the national distribution of their work. Submission guidelines, suggestions for possible themes, and all other necessary info can be found on the official application form.
