Lights, Camera, Action! a film crew representing Silver Sail Entertainment is interested in shooting large section of the feature film JUST BE CLAUS in the Santa Claus area between December 13th, 2013 and January 14th, 2014.
JUST BE CLAUS is a comedy that tells the story of Nick, a young man in Austin who has never enjoyed Christmas. After he witnesses a crime in Austin, Nick is placed in the Witness Protection Program in Santa Claus during the holiday season where he learns to love the holiday all over again. The film was co-written and will be directed by Tanner Beard, President of Silver Sail Entertainment. The film will be produced by Suzanne Weinert, together she and Beard have worked on 5 feature films including the western THE LEGEND OF HELL'S GATE and, most recently, HELLION starring Aaron Paul from TV's BREAKING BAD.
During the weekend of December 13, 14, and 15 the crew will be filming some of the decorated homes in Christmas Lake Village. Their interest is simply in the exteriors, and will NEVER be entering any of the homes.
If you have plans to "highly decorate your home" and interested in possibly having it filmed for the movie let me know as soon as possible. Just shoot me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org once I receive your email I will send a release form for you to fill out and drop off a the gate house.
 Lake dredging efforts will once again kick off around the middle of December. This effort will push into next year finishing up around February 2014. Focus for this effort is the north finger that runs between Dancer, Ever Green Plaza and Prancer. Dredge crew will remove as much build up as possible without risking the structural integrity of any dock along the designated area.
 Main entrance enhancement; the CLV Board of Directors just recently approved the purchase and installation of a 7' Santa. Our Santa is located at the parking lot exit gate island. The island has just recently seen some much needed attention in the form of a concrete curb and a 3' by 3' slab for Santa to stand on. If you have ideas that will enhance the village please don't hesitate to drop me a line or an email.
