LA comes to Cabrillo National Monument (San Diego)

Cabrillo National Monument

Last week I got to relive my past and remember my roots in production as an Assistant Director. When I first graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara I took on many project as an AD, I enjoyed the long hours and the ability to build a schedule and help form a cohesive team. More recently I had been working as a Producer at Sidecar but given the opportunity to get back into the saddle I was excited to get to work with a new group of hungry filmmakers down from Los Angeles.

“Caroline” directed by Patricia Delgado is a story about overcoming adversity and finding strength in new friends in strange places. The story follows an artist fresh off the success of a collaborative show now being asked to recreate her piece at a solo show in San Diego. Unsure of herself, she confides in a local sketch artist, played by T.K. Richardson, working in the Cabrillo National Monument gift shop. The two actors have great chemistry and Caroline, played by Rachel Rath gives a solid performance as the lead in the film.

Filmed on location at Sunset Cliffs, Cabrillo National Monument and the new Stage Two Nine in Vista, Ca, this wonderful short about believing in yourself has great potential to make it to some of the more prominent film festivals across California and the U.S. Look for Caroline in late 2017.
