About

The success of the Christmas comedy "Make The Yuletide Gay" brought calls for a sequel from its very first screening, and Guest House Films continues to get messages from fans wanting the story to continue.  With the original "Make The Yuletide Gay" having become an annual holiday tradition for many fans, Guest House Films wants to continue the story by producing a sequel, tentatively titled (of course) "Make The Yuletide Gay 2."  We're ready to make it happen - and we can't do it without your help.

To produce "Make The Yuletide Gay 2," we need the support of our fans.  It would be an expensive movie to make (at least, compared to our other films), and so we are launching an all-or-nothing Kickstarter campaign.  If we don't reach our goal, we will put this sequel aside and move on.  BUT, if we do reach our goal, we will finally get "Make The Yuletide Gay 2" made.

The story picks up several years after the action of "Make The Yuletide Gay," as everyone comes together for the Christmas wedding of Gunn and Nathan!  That's right, our two college students are all grown up now and ready to make a lifetime commitment to each other - during the Christmas holidays, of course.  With the Gunnunderson and Stanford families getting together, you never know what might happen - especially with more family members and friends showing up.

We are confident that we can get the entire original cast back, but nothing is definite and will depend on scheduling.

If we can secure the funding needed to produce this sequel, we plan to shoot the movie in 2015 and then the DVD/VOD release date will be determined by scheduling and post-production work.

The funds raised will be used for pre-production expenses (casting, permits, insurance, etc.), production costs (cast and crew salaries, lighting and camera equipment rental, props, wardrobe, location fees, catering, travel, etc.), and post-production (such as editing and music composition).  

Ever since "Make The Yuletide Gay" came out on DVD, the response we get from fans wanting a sequel has never diminished.  If anything, it has increased over time.  So now, we need those fans to step up and help us.  Make a contribution, tell your friends and help us turn "Make The Yuletide Gay 2" into a Christmas reality!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge to this production is, quite simply, raising the funds. We have the story, we have our dream cast, we have loyal fans and film festivals wanting to see the sequel - now all we need is the money to make it happen.

Guest House Films has made seven feature films to date, so we know how to put together a strong crew, find talented cast members, secure amazing locations and do everything that needs to be done to produce an entertaining film.

Most of all, we want to make this movie for our fans. And that is the best motivation ever.
