Gotta Catch Santa Claus is an animated Christmas special starring William Shatner as Santa Claus. It’s based on a comic book by Trevor Taylor, who was 14 years old when he wrote it. Steven de Souza (Die Hard) wrote the screenplay, and I was hired to produce and co-direct with Peter Lepeniotis.

My credits:

  • Producer
  • Co-Director
  • Voice Director

One of the perks of the job was getting to voice direct William Shatner as Santa Claus. He was terrific, as always, but cutting together the final performance was a bit tricky. Here is a short film we made with actual outtakes from the session.

 

Here is the trailer.
