I just returned from a week in Los Angeles, where part of the reason I was there was for the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. I had three nominations this year, for “Best Original Score”, “Best Classical”, and “Best Contemporary Orchestral Instrumental”. I ended up taking home the win for the film score (for “Minuet“) – which I was super excited about. It’s a pretty big category in the sense that it covered all indie films, shorts, and documentaries. It was truly an honor.
Here as some photos from the event, as well as a short video from the evening.

P.S. The beautiful sparkly dress (which received numerous compliments that night) is by http://www.promdressesol.com. They were kind to send me some dresses to wear. I have been a customer of theirs for some time, and I absolutely love their designs. Please check out their website, and if you do order a dress be sure to mention you found them through me.
