From Christopher:
“I struggled on “how” to tell this story. . .

Amidst the normal chaos of other projects and daily living, this tragic and triumphant story has permeated my life for the better part of a year—weighing on me to try and get it right.

Not only was the subject matter difficult to tackle, but there were so many facets to the account that required deeper faith and humility—sincere emotional commitment. More than I possessed.”

Check out our latest short flick starring the incredible Aaron “Wheelz”. Buckle up. As Wheelz always says “Safety third!” #wheelz #aaronwheelz

“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.”
