The Story Behind the Story
Caroline Boon proves that persistence pays off. Caroline won first runner-up in the 2004 “What’s the REAL DEAL?” Contest and was an intern on the set of that year’s Texas winner, Toothpaste. Caroline also joined the Scenarios USA Speakers Bureau and has spoken about the significance of youth creating media about real teen life. When the 2006 contest came around, Caroline submitted a script again and again won first runner-up, proving herself to be an extraordinary writer not once but twice in a row. And when the original winners of the contest were unable to meet the rigorous demands of working with a director to turn their submission into a professional script, Caroline gladly stepped up to the challenge with her submission.
Me, Myself and I was filmed in Brownsville, Texas in March 2007. A professional film crew traveled to the Southernmost tip of Texas for the two-day film shoot, many making the 6 hour drive from Austin to participate.
