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. 

 

ARE YOU TWO MARRIED?

Mary: Yes, yes, we are.

Myles: Happily. 

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. If our videos make you relate to someone, BOOM. We've done our job.

Myles: That we care about more than just making beautiful videos. We're really invested in getting results for the missions behind them.
