Dolphin Girl is in the can! Wow, what an amazing, exhausting experience. I was so fortunate to be surrounded by a stellar cast and crew of dedicated, hardworking professionals. I wrote and directed Dolphin Girl... it took a TRIBE to make it.

Thank you

A huge thank you goes out to our Producer and Stage 32 CEO, RB Botto, for taking time out of his insane schedule to make it to our shoot. Producer Amanda Toney held down the fort and was with us in spirit. Thanks for all the texts and emails, Amanda! A debt of gratitude goes out to Stage 32 for running amazing contests including the contest Dolphin Girl won and for connecting me with 90% of the talent for this film. One stop shopping; I love this platform!

Another great big thank you goes out to the St. Pete/Clearwater Film Commission for sponsoring our production and for providing such stunning locations.  

To the Crew

A very big thank you goes out to my Dolphin Girl crew. Scatter Brothers -- Doug and Ben, you were amazing, Stefanie my AD with the booming voice, you kept us all in line and on time. Ayla, my very professional sound mixer, I can still see you holding that outstretched boom over the pier. To all the PA's, consultants and supervisors... it couldn't have happened with out you! Thank you. 

To my mentor - JT Mollner.

JT you're the best. You brought your wealth of experience and knowledge on set, gave suggestions and advice when I needed it and stepped back when I didn't. Mentor for life -- it's in your contract. ;)
