“In the wake of all the allegations against Harvey Weinstein and now many others, I sat gutted reading all the #metoo stories popping up on my social media feed,” comments director Lara Everly. “I was outraged and saddened realizing how many women I knew had experienced sexual harassment and assault, but I also felt inspired by the solidarity knowing I wasn’t alone. The women in the video are me. They are you.” Title: The Voices of #MeToo Directed by Lara Everly Produced by: Candice Bernstein, Jennifer McCann, Dennis Jacobs Associate Produced by: Saralane Boasberg & Melissa Vitello Director of Photography: Pablo Berron Writer: Eliza Arnold Editorial: Cut+Run Editor: Sean Stender Assistant Editor: Moss Eletreby Color: Bobby Maruvada Song: “The Surface Changes” by Kaki King Featuring: Karla Amezola, Paige Cary, Alona Dadiani, Beth Dover, Balire Elspeth, Wendy Rose, Jade Tailor, Olivia Tai, Melissa Sagemiller, Vinessa Shaw, Tiffany Snow
