Little Tree

Little Tree: ELM Holiday Commerical

The holidays mean different things to different people. But when you peel back the traditions, the music and the presents, we all yearn for the same thing. We all want to be home. Close to the ones we love most.

This short film we directed was a passion project filled with magic. Our entire team pulled together to make this happen. Our star, Lukas West, was a champ and it suddenly began snowing unexpectedly during the shoot which only added to the magic.

What is more special as a kid than going to the tree farm to find that perfect tree for you living room. This tree was about to be thrown in the garbarge, but as in life, we are all valuable. Inspired by Charlie Brown, we produced this spot to bring a little joy to your holiday season.

We hope you all find joy, wonder, and the comfort of home this holiday season.

Big thanks to the team that helped bring this story to life.
