Q&A with M+M
Who are you?
Mary: I'm a founding partner and the creative director of Forward Films. I am also slightly OCD, a huge comedy fan, and very excitable by good food.
Myles: I'm the other founding partner and producer of Forward Films. I make sure the OCD doesn't keep us from meeting our deadlines. Listening is my favorite thing to do, and I'm not a fan of GPS. I'd rather get lost and see something new than follow the same route every time.
Are you two married?
Mary: Yes, yes, we are.
Mary: Hashtag dream spouse.
Myles: They are going to get sick now.
What else should people know about you?
Mary: That empathy is what we're all about. I am convinced that empathy is the No. 1 thing that drives progress, whether that's in society in general, in business, or in personal relationships.
Myles: That we care about more than just making beautiful videos. We're really invested in getting results for the missions behind them. Ultimately, we want to help people — to improve lives — and video is just our way of making that happen.
