Two, talented people, were on my show this morning, "Andy in the Morning," promoting their new movie. A Christmas movie that they intend to shoot here in Grand Rapids.Teresa Thome and Patrick Ziegler, creators of Fubble Entertainment, are embarking on their Christmas movie journey of The Santa Hat, and intend to have it ready for the holidays. They will be shooting the entire film here in Grand Rapids with stars Ed Asner and Marion Ross already signed on.

Thome and Ziegler are no strangers to the Grand Rapids area having served on the talent cabinet for Gilda’s Club for the past two years for the national festival of laughter, LaughFest where they wrote and produced the creative portion of “An Evening With Betty White.” and wrote and produced “aLive from Grand Rapids, It’s Saturday Night”, with Martin Short, Alan Zweibel and Kevin Nealon, served as Executive Producers for “A Fabulous Night in Grand Rapids With Wayne Brady and Friends” with Jonathan Mangum, and just finished producing Gilda's signature LaughFest event this past March, An Evening with Jay Leno. In addition, Fubble is an Emmy® award winning company with success in national entertainment television, web content development, new media based projects and live theater. In other words, they have the credentials.

How would like to get involved, maybe even be in the movie, The Santa Hat? Tomorrow, Thursday, July 31, from 3 to 6 p.m., they are hosting a FREE public party at the Old Public Museum on Jefferson, SE, downtown. It's a Christmas in July kinda thing to promote the upcoming holiday film titled The Santa Hat. Of course, we're all invited. You'll have a chance to sit on Santa's lap and get a picture with him, plus get in on the vision for the project.

Here is the website, The Santa Hat, for you to get all the information.  You'll also find a way to contribute to the project and help them raise the needed funds.

Have fun! And, oh,.....I'm ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille.
