Production began in 2006.
In 2007 we were told, "We are approaching the final phase of production on Nicholas of Myra and the film is set to wrap by the end of the year."
In 2008, "2007 was a very busy year with a significant portion of the film being shot . . . priniciple photography is now 75% complete and editing is well underway."
In 2009, "Though not entirely complete, the production has made tremendous progress."
And now in 2013, "Without a finished film to market . . . ."
We will post further updates here and on our Facebook page.
Nicholas of Myra
This new movie will bring the story of Saint Nicholas, with his selfless generosity, to the general public—a public that has largely forgotten or never knew his inspiring saga. Nicholas of Myra is for every time, all ages, and those of every creed. It will leave no doubt that Santa Claus is for real, and that he can be as much a part of sacred holiday tradition as secular.
"With this motion picture, we are trying to emulate the look of the classic film epics that many of us grew up on," stated Gerald Hartke, director of Nicholas of Myra. "It is going to be family entertainment that we hope, once completed, will be enjoyed for years to come."
"The World needs to know the story of Nicholas," said Canon James Rosenthal of the St. Nicholas Society, after visiting Wonderworker Studios and meeting the cast and crew.
