No Lifetime or Hallmark Christmas movie has yet featured a same-sex central couple. With Jane and Sue in “A Holiday I Do,” filmmaker Alicia Schneider could make screen history.
Now, you are working on a project that has already received some local press. What is this? And how did you become involved with it?
Your daughter, Kayden was the lead in this movie. It played the film festival circuit before it appeared on Amazon. She must be really excited to have had it be received so well. How did you feel about the movie?
Here’s a copy of the main cast list! We’ve got some amazing local talent involved, as well as fantastic actors from L.A., Chicago, and New York. Additional Michigan talent includes Tennille T., Calhoun Koenig, Alan Longstreet, Matt Santia, Colleen Gentry, and more!
One more little thing is that 10% of the proceeds of this film will benefit The Trevor Project, which works to help save young LGBTQ+ lives. It’s a project that digs deeper than entertainment for all of us involved. Although, anyone can watch the film and just have fun and be entertained like you would any Lifetime or Hallmark film (and trust me, with the crew we have – including Jackson Swan as DP plus a lot of names you’d recognize as some of the best in Michigan – it fits right in with some major budget Hollywood productions), there’s a human mission behind the business end of it.
Sure! We have about four more film days that should take place in April. The film’s targeted release is Christmas season 2022, so this year!
Well, here’s wishing you, cast, and crew every success.
For more details regarding this movie, although the Kickstarter campaign is now closed there is a wonderful outline of the movie here.
