It is with great pride that I present you with my Christmas Song. The video turned out sweet and funny, just as I had hoped.
Please enjoy it and share it with anyone who might be in need of a smile.
The set locations for the song were downtown Springfield, Missouri and Evansville, Illinois. The dancers are improv comics at the Skinny Improv in Springfield, Missouri. The “Before” Santa is a musician. The “Real” Santa was found at a Halloween party. He was not dressed as himself. He was a monk! 🙂 The video was shot with my iPad three using an iKlip and a microphone stand for a tripod. It was edited in Final Cut Pro with editing help. The music was written, arranged, produced, recorded, mixed, and performed by myself using my iPad and GarageBand. Seriously, the most amazing tools for songwriters ever developed. I am indebted to the innovation and legacy of Steve Jobs. If you ever wonder if one person can make a difference, he would be an amazing example. Not just of brilliance but also of excellence. It is in his example that I share the first of many songs with the world.
