Matt Bomer Birthday Project 2013

Since Matt will be turning 36 years old on October 11th, it’s time to get started on his annual birthday project!

This year, we’ll be creating a video filled with all your own videos wishing Matt a happy birthday. My talented online friend Dann will be creating the video again, as she did such a wonderful job last year.

In order to participate, you just need to send us a 15 second video wishing Matt a happy birthday. It would be wonderful if you could take the video outdoors with some nice scenery in the background. Please make sure you have good lighting with no distracting background noise.

The deadline for the birthday project is October 4th. That way, Dann will have enough time to prepare the video before the big day. It will be uploaded to YouTube so Matt can view it easier, but it can be unlisted to protect everyone’s privacy. If you don’t feel comfortable sending in a video, you can participate in our 2nd birthday project (see below), or can leave your birthday wishes in the comments on October 11th.

In order to submit your 15 second video, please email it to (DEADLINE REACHED) with “Matt Bomer Bday Project” as the subject. We’ll send you an email back to confirm it has been accepted. Please do your best to keep it close to 15 seconds. If you are way over, we would feel bad asking you to redo it.

Our 2nd present for Matt is to send him a birthday book filled with postcards from all over the world. We would prefer you choose a postcard with some scenery on it, to represent where you live. In the message area of the postcard, please write your birthday greetings to Matt. In the address area of the postcard, you can leave it blank if you’re sending it inside another envelope. Otherwise, please mail it to the following address:

DELETED

Whether you’re sending us a video, mailing in your postcard, or both, please be respectful to Matt by not gushing all about how gorgeous he is. I’m sure he would appreciate that!

If you have any questions or concerns, you can comment here, or send us an email using the address above. On Matt’s birthday, I’ll direct him to this site as I have done each year and will let everyone know his response. The birthday book will be mailed to him, and I’ll make sure he personally receives it.

Thank you for reading, and we look forward to seeing your submissions!

  • Hi, Kelly 😀

    Thanks for organizing another project for Matt’s birthday \o/ Count me in 😀 I do have a question, though. Does it have to be a bought postcard or is it okay if someone designs a postcard themselves? One that features a theme related to the place they live and has the name of the city and country, only it’s made from scratch? Would that work?

  • Amanda

    Kelly and Danny,

    Thank you for organizing such a terrific birthday project. I can’t wait to see the finished video.

  • Olena: It can be handmade, as long as it’s not much thicker than a regular postcard. Thanks!

  • Thaiane

    I would love to participate in this project, but I had an idea. could I take a picture with a poster, where is written “Happy birthday dear Matt” instead of sending a postcard?

  • Amanda: We’re only accepting postcards and 15 second videos. You can show the tattoo in your video if you want.

    Thaiane: Sorry, we’re only accepting postcards for the birthday book.

    Thanks for the support J J and Vicki!

  • nicole

  • wonderful: I’ll start working on it! Has the video to have a particular format? ’cause I only have a digital camera that makes little videos, too.

  • Dulce Cardoso

    Hello, I think the postcard it’s a very good idea. Whith that Matt knows where from are your fans, because he have fans around the world. ????
    Dulce

  • Nicole: Yes, that is correct.

    Daniela: To make sure we can open it, we would prefer a standard format such as avi, mpeg, mp4, mov, wmv, etc.

  • Rika

    Kerry & Danny,
    I have a question. What are the dimensions of the American postcards?
    Japanese postcards are 100mm (3.93 inches) x 148.5mm (5.84 inches).
    Please tell me the largest dimensions I can make the postcard. Thank you.

  • Hi Rika: I believe the standard size for American postcards is 4×6 inches. If it’s close to that, it will be perfect.

  • Ok, thanks

  • Adriana
