This is the “North Pole Secrets” series of sketches we ever did for Christmas Barrel, our Yuletide-themed YouTube channel that runs 24 episodes as an advent calendar every year. North Pole Secrets are always recorded in a single continuous shot on a green screen, unless one of the characters had to be composited in after. The first few of these were shot using a Canon 7D. We later upgraded to a Sony FS700.
