“Jesus H. Macy!  This is fucking unbelievable!  The journey of filmmaking itself is a great achievement and I salute all the other filmmakers, nominees and fellow winners. Thanks to to my acting teachers; Zen master Ron Burrus at The Stella Adler Conservatory, Marjorie Ballentine and John Swanbeck, you have all changed my life.  It really does take a village to make a film,  and I give thanks to everyone who poured their blood, sweat and tears into making CURIO SHOP,all that it is, this award would not have been possible, without you all. To our fantastically talented Directors of Photography, David Stump and Patrick Meade Jones; thank you for being geniuses at capturing lightening in a bottle. To our Editor, Michael Schatz for having the patience and skills to masterfully cut this puzzle of a film together. And to Marshall Plante for giving it some teeth. I especially want to thank my fellow actors;  Christopher Sweeney, Brittany Slattery, James Murray, Jack and Max Crane and most of all, I want to thank my beautiful and talented wife, Zoe Taylor who co-starred, co-wrote, and co-produced this amazing film, none of this would have been possible without her.”
