This film is rooted in a sense of childhood nostalgia about selecting a Christmas tree. It captures those holiday memories that many of us had while growing up. What better place to tell an honest and authentic story like this than through the eyes of the ones closest to you. In this film I used my little boy of 4 years, Phil, and my wife Esther as the two main characters.
Working with children can be a challenge — something I was reminded of during this project. Thankfully, we pushed through our retakes with Phil and got the shots needed.
Philip lives in San Diego,CA with his wife Esther and his son. His continual passion for film and photography projects inspire positive change in the world around him and drive him in everything he does.
