Anxious About the World This Holiday? A Holidusical Should Help

p3 has a cure for what ails you

Not quite feeling the holiday spirit this year, what with the world going to hell and all? You're not alone. But there is a cure—a temporary one, perhaps, but it works like a charm. All you need is song, dance ... and maybe a little Scotch. 

In its just-released holiday video, production company p3 dramatizes the problem of world affairs putting a damper on one's festive spirit. One of p3's partners is down in the dumps, and just not feeling it. But there's nothing a Holidusical can't fix. 

Check out the charmingly amusing video here: 

The film was directed by Sean Mewshaw, who shot in various locations around Portland, Maine. It stars the whole p3 team—in particular, partner, DP and editor Morgan Myer as the top-hatted bringer of good cheer, and partner and director Brian Chin as the object of Myer's efforts. 

"It felt right to address the national mood, and that it might be a hurdle for people to get to a place of happiness this holiday," says Myer. "If, in the end, all we do is make people smile and laugh for a couple of minutes, at our expense, that feels good to us."
