Molly Schiot

at Director

Raised in a small New Hampshire town, Molly Schiot’s artistic calling led her to the Glasgow School of Art, and then on to Brown University. From there, she leaped energetically into the world of commercials, music videos and film and hasn’t stopped since. Schiot’s creative endeavors have led to music videos for the likes of Mark Ronson and The Raveonettes, and commercials for Miu-Miu, Levi’s and Converse. Her recent ESPN 30 for 30 short, “Our Tough Guy” is a meditation on one of the NHL’s most fearsome players, John Wensink. Schiot’s whimsical and unique imagination stems from a background in illustration, photography and “the small things in life” — all of which have influenced the approach she takes toward filmmaking. Approaching her work with a deep respect for the ubiquitous and the mundane, Schiot’s marvelous worlds are a tour de force, telling stories that captivate and engage the viewer from start to finish. Most recently, Schiot has parlayed her dedication to telling women’s stories into the Instagram account, “theunsungheroines”, which became the best selling book “Game Changers: The Unsung Heroines of Sports History,” published by Simon and Schuster. The book is under development to become a TV series with Annapurna Pictures, with Serena Williams acting as Executive Producer.
