Oh my…(as my father in law would say). On March 6th I was honored to receive the award of Best Actress at the San Diego Film Awards for the role of Valentine in Just Desserts . We were also honored as our director David G. Stone was nominated for Best Director, and Mary Bichner won for Best Musical Score for her beautiful music in the film!
I really want to thank the incredible cast and crew of Just Desserts, our friends and family, the Marine Room, Chef Bernard Guillas, Chef Ron Oliver and their team. So many people came together to work extremely hard to make this film possible and I am very grateful.
Making this film made me appreciate even more how much hard work a cast and crew is willing to put in to tell a story and share the same goal. Making a film is an extremely powerful experience, and it’s about working together to try and touch an audience. As Maya Angelou said “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
I’d also really like to thank Jodi Cilley and the San Diego Film Consortium, not just for making this awards show happen, but for working so tirelessly bring the San Diego film community together and united on a larger vision.
A heartfelt thank you to all of you for your continued support, Caroline
P.S: Oh and everyone who knows me knows how much I like to take photos to capture the moment, so I pulled an Ellen and managed to take a few “selfies” on stage. Always keep your camera with you 😉
