on the eve of his inauguration i thought i would post this spot. This is the long version of a tv spot we put forward for moveon.org's Obama in 30 seconds competition called playground politics. Together with my producer Lucy Kennedy, we decided while working together at CBS that we should contribute to Obama's campaign. I had heard about the contest and we put this spot together within a week. All the kids volunteered for free and we shot it on top of a school in brooklyn. With 1400 odd entries, we were just happy to be in the running. In the end, we won one of 5 awards, ours was best positive message. Check out the long version, which is my personal favorite.
