“LATEST PROJECT COMPLETE!

This was an amazing project to write + direct with so many awesome and talented collaborators.

How many parallels to Christmas Eve Story can you find in this modern day tale off that special night?

We know of at least 10+ easter eggs that parallel the story of the Savior’s birth found in this video.

One that people may not catch is the LIGHT (Star) hanging down in the garage above the group.”
