The TIME 100 Gala was this week, and I can't stop thinking about how amazing that night was - mainly because I got to be in the same vicinity as Secretary Hillary Clinton, have a silly conversation with Stephen Colbert, and later do karaoke with Tilda Swinton. After the video team filmed the red carpet, we posed for a photo of our own. (photo credit: Almudena Toral)
Today TIME released the annual TIME 100 list. On it is Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance. I'm a fan of hers, and was thrilled to be able to create a video portrait of her work.
Gillian Laub has a knack for seeing the real story in a trend. When Long Island ladies started going nuts for the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, she knew she had to capture it. When I came on to the project as video editor, Gillian had shot an exclusive interview with the author, a very exciting book party, and several interviews with women describing just how juicy this book has made their lives. Such a fun project.
