I just received notice that But I Do won Best Music Video in Toronto! The film is the true story of someone who read my book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men, and used it on her trip to Europe. Big thanks to Steve Veale (pictured), festival director, and the 92 volunteers who helped me make it. I’ve been thinking back to all the fun we had, and how much people sacrificed, and thought you might like to know a little about it. A good example was the ballroom scene. The owner of the club let us use it after hours. Just before filming began, the fiancé of one of the principal dancers was killed in an accident. During filming, another dancer had a fever of 102 and I was pushing through the pain of a torn muscle. When we were done, the dancer suffering the loss said there was no place he’d rather be and many others said they were sad to see it end. I feel so fortunate to have such amazing friends.
You’re so frikkin cool, Katherine!
