When I first watched the staged reading of Waffles for Virginia, I fell in love with the script.
Jay had crafted a tale that was universally relatable. Anyone who has ever gone through that stage in life of either questioning or trying to answer the questions surrounding Santa’s truth could be touched. The play had humor, insight, wit, passion, and most of all love between members of the family. I wanted to bring it to the screen. Jay agreed to let me make it, and worked with me on
casting and planning.
We brought Cameron Bourquein on as Art Director, and she created a wonderful atmosphere against which the action would be played, as well as working with Giant Turtle animators Chris and Ginger Ludden.
This film explores the common experience we share in keeping the spirit of giving and love alive.
Everyone involved, from Madison Pay as Ginny to composer Virgil Franklin has given something special to this piece. It has been an honor work with so many wonderful people who gave their time and talents to breathe life into Jay’s script.
