Recently, NYWIFT interviewed the three amazing women being honored at this year’s awards show. NYWIFT member Drake Stutesman and I were on hand to conduct the interviews, which will be used for the event’s video montages.
It was a great day. The honorees—who’ve worked on such films as Moonrise Kingdom and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and TV shows like The Good Wife and SNL — shared fascinating behind-the-scenes stories and their own personal journeys of reaching new heights in their respective fields.
