It is nice to be able to write, produce, and direct with great fans like Santa and Mrs.Claus loving your work. Instead of giving the screenwriter, producer, and director in your life coal, give them gold. Santa and Mrs. Claus love The First Movie is the Toughest.
Great tip on production value is to shoot all your holiday scenes now. Free lights and decorations are being set up. Streets are lit with Christmas cheer very soon.
