Instead of sending out cards and baskets every December (well, we sent some anyway), we at OF decided to create short films that celebrate the spirt of the holiday season, and send them to our friends and clients.
For 2018, we made Never Too Old For Santa, the story of a 29-year-old that still believes in the jolly old elf. She experiences a Dickensian series of events that help her to an understanding of her place in the world.
I wrote and directed NTOFS, and we used local actors for all of the roles. Josh Depaz composed a beautiful soundtrack. In the spring of 2019 we submitted it to the Southern Shorts Film Festival, where it was screened and won several awards, and scored in the top three in the Made in Georgia category. It was a lot of fun to make.
