Production Stills - Introducing our Interviewees!

Comment

Dear Kickstarters, 

We are thrilled to have wrapped production a few weeks ago and are now editing, arranging and plotting away. We wanted to introduce you to some of our interviewees with stills and highlights (more pics/info on our blog and facebook). This is the first installment (1/3), so more to come - we couldn't introduce everyone at once!

- All the best from the crew

Eric Carleauthor/illustrator of The Hungry Caterpillar and other beloved children’s books, and his wife Bobbie shared stories from their 35 year long friendship with Norton Juster, about their old dog named Tock, and their founding of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. More pics here...


Jason Epstein, Editorial Director at Random House for forty years, told us his thoughts on the joy of a good story, how he never left college, and how the publishing industry is undergoing drastic changes. Oh yes, and why his dog Hamlet doesn’t quite live up to his name. More pics here...


Martha Minow, Dean of Harvard Law, talked to us about the essay she wrote for the 50th Anniversary Edition: “The rewards of laughter come with memorable cautions against the distractions of trivia: the recognition that a sense of humor can preserve purpose and proportion, and that even the smallest “but” can topple unjustified authority.” More pics here...


Norton Juster. Well I guess he doesn't need an introduction. But we did have the pleasure of another long interview with him in his study where we heard about his friendship with Jane Jacobs, his thoughts on education and teaching, and got to hear The Phantom Tollbooth read by the very man himself.
