It seems like there’s nothing that hasn’t been affected in one way or another by the current health crisis. Work has changed, school has changed – even shopping and exercising have gone through transformations to cope with the health and safety requirements needed to keep everyone out of harm’s way.
Out With The Old…
After a far-from-usual Thanksgiving, it may seem like even Christmas isn’t immune from the changes. The time honored tradition of children flocking to local malls to have a turn letting Santa know what’s on their wish list depends on that increasingly rare commodity we used to take for granted – in-person interaction. But, thanks to the ingenuity of 37-year-old entrepreneur, William Evelsizer, children all over can still find a way to get their wishes to Santa.
…In With The New
Enter Santa’s Club, the contactless platform for children (and adults) of all ages to interact with Santa. Seemingly tailor-made for the COVID era, Santa’s club was actually spawned after Evelsizer heard stories of families having to wait in line for hours just to get a chance for their children to have some one-on-one time with Santa. Although it may have seemed like a hard sell in a pre-COVID marketplace, the virtual visit with Santa is quickly gaining traction as evidenced by coverage from multiple news sources, including a feature in Fortune magazine.
How Does It Work?
Santa’s club makes everything easy, and adds a touch of charm to the experience.
- Kids get a custom letter from Santa inviting them to their scheduled virtual visit.
- Each virtual session is customized so kids hear their name and get a real one-on-one experience.
- Recordings are made available for a timeless memento of the occasion.
Making Christmas Magic A Reality
DHD Films is proud to have helped bring Evelsizer’s vision to life. With so many things changing in and around children’s lives due to the pandemic, our work putting together the Santa’s Club promotional video was truly a labor of love. “Working with the DHD team was a blast!!”, said Evelsizer. “They over-delivered and hit the emotional tone we so desperately wanted to achieve!”
