Watch: Touching Holiday Short Film 'Christmas Spirit' by Andy Delaney
"Do you ever stop eating?" Sometimes we need a good pick-me-up, and it's a short film like this that might do the trick. Christmas Spirit is a lovely 10 minute short film made by director/editor Andy Delaney, with writer Rich With. "Working in conjunction with the charity Cruse Bereavement Care, Andy and Rich have crafted a beautifully melancholic and yet ultimately uplifting Christmas film guaranteed to leave a lump in your throat." The short is about a boy who helps his dad deal with grief at Christmas in his own unique way. Starring Curtis Flowers and introducing Bert Davis as The Boy, along with Charles Sharman-Cox, Olivia Sawbridge, Rachel Beauchamp, Dylan Tate and Jamie-Lee Pike. Not only is this an excellent short, the music they use throughout really adds to the emotion of it all. Highly recommend watch this one.
