Santa Claus Documentary Filmmaker Studying the Myth of Bill Murray

Fans with stories about encounters with Bill Murray have been asked to share their tales for a quirky new documentary.

Tommy Avallone, who previously explored the world of holiday Santas for the documentary I Am Santa Claus and produced a film about Ghostbusters fans, Ghostheads, is piecing together a new film about the Lost in Translation star, titled The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned From A Mythical Man

The film showcases people who have had Bill Murray encounters. 

"These tales are like folklore, and include Murray entering the lives of everyday people through the most unexpected ways," the director explains. 

"We have interviewed some of the bigger known stories that have been popular on the internet: Bill crashing a house party in Austin, Texas, Bill jumping in an engagement photo in South Carolina, and Bill doing the dishes at a college party in Scotland, just because, and now we are looking for more Bill Murray stories and encounters that people out there in the world may be hanging on to. We want to hear them all; no story is too big or too small!" 

The filmmaker is now accepting story submissions to be included in the documentary until October 7. If you have been hanging on to a random Bill Murray encounter, Avallone wants you to share it via [email protected]nsdorfilms.com.
