Alumnae/i Voices: Telling the Sarah Lawrence Story
Credits: Alumnae/iVoices: Telling the Sarah Lawrence Story is a collaborative production of the communications, admission, and president's offices, the College's filmmaking group in the visual arts program, and several other members of the SLC community, among them television and film producer Caryn Mandabach, a trustee and parent of Marissa '04 and Jonathan '09. Special thanks to Brian Emery '07, film tech director, who served as chief videographer and editor; Fred Strype of the visual arts/filmmaking faculty, for help with concept and for conducting two interviews in Los Angeles; actor Elisabeth Röhm '96, a trustee who developed this project idea with us; student videographers Dylan Morgan '09, Neil Murphy '10, Eli Elliott '09, and Kyle Curry '09; and to all the alum interviewees. Admission Dean Amy Abrams consulted on concept and editing. Interactive Director Winston Churchill-Joell translated the video pieces to the Web. Communications Director Todd Wilson conducted most of the interviews and coordinated the project overall.
Locations: The interviews were filmed in January, February, and March in several locales: in offices of Jon Avnet '71 in Southern California, at Syracuse University, in the New York City law offices of Debevoise & Plimpton (courtesy of Mark Goodman '83), in the Columbia University lab of W. Ian Lipkin '74, in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City (the paintings in the background, part of the permanent collection, are Picasso's Woman Ironing and Cezanne's Man with Crossed Arms), in the offices of Chicago Public Schools, and on campus in the Heimbold Visual Arts Center sound stage and in Westlands. Special thanks to all those who made locations available and who assisted in logistics.
