The feel good Santa movie of the year!
5 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pure solid gold, saw this film @ Chapman Film School a couple weeks ago, special screening with students and the makers. There were about 50-75 people in the new theater at Chapman. One of the most professional and well done films I have seen from these students. The acting and pace of this 15 minute film was terrific, great idea of a story, good and bad Santa Claus "coming to town". The makeup was so pro. Very strong language and graphics of Santa "getting into some trouble" Everybody looked great, the music was professional, seemed like a lot of work and time was put into this film. The director said it took a year for this to be completed. Waiting for the Easter bunny special from this director. Bravo!
