Gail Mooney is the producer of the documentary “Opening Our Eyes; Global Stories About the Power of One.” A filmmaker and still photographer, she has traveled the world capturing both film and still images for commercial and documentary work. She is co-owner of a production studio, Kelly/Mooney Productions, with her husband and partner, Tom Kelly.
In this fourth documentary, Gail worked with her daughter, Erin, on the filming and production. The pair took a 99-day journey around the world following 11 people, on six continents, who devoted their lives to making the world a better place for other people. Gail and Erin created the piece as a call for action, to help inspire people to make a change.
Gail has worked for over 30 years, with clients all around the world, shooting still photography. She credits her film experience as an inspiration to give her the “eye of a hybrid.” She works to get as many angles and perspectives as possible of all her work.
Some of her past work includes clients such as Coca-Cola, AT&T, National Geographic and American Express.
