Art Streiber on photographing Rashida Jones for Wired’s “All Work & All Play” issue

For its July issue, which looks at working from every imaginable angle, Wired asked Art Streiber to photograph actress and author Rashida Jones. “I honestly don’t know where to start with describing how wonderful this shoot was,” says Art. “It was in San Francisco, it was for Wired magazine, and it was with Rashida Jones…an editorial hat trick!”

“The folks at Wired are talented, thoughtful, creative, and amazing to work with,” Art continues. “Senior Photo Editor Anna Goldwater and Director of Photography Patrick Witty produced the shoot in Wired’s photo studio at their newly redesigned, super-sleek offices.

“Deputy Creative Director David Moretti and Executive Creative Director Billy Sorrentino collaborated with me throughout the creative process as we attempted to illustrate the new, overlapping world order of WORK and PLAY.

“And Editor in Chief Scott Dadich was succinctly visionary when it came to the final design of the cover. He was also a great sport on camera as well, while Rashida put him in a headlock and gave him a ‘noogie.’

“Rashida Jones? Smart, funny, talented, patient, and willing to try whatever crazy suggestions we threw her way.”

Lauren Greenfield’s #LikeAGirl sweeps Cannes, winning 14 awards, including a Titanium, the Grand Prix, and the Glass Lion

Stockland Martel is thrilled to congratulate Lauren Greenfield, Leo Burnett, and our friends at Chelsea Pictures for triumphing at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, where #LikeAGirl won 14 awards—including the most coveted prize in commercial advertising, the Titanium Award. The spot also won two of other most prestigious Cannes Lions awards, the Grand Prix and the Glass Lion.

“This has been the most moving and gratifying experience because of the reaction of the audience and the way it has resonated internationally to numbers beyond our wildest dreams,” Lauren explained in a Q&A posted on the Leo Burnett blog about the making of the groundbreaking spot for Always.

“While we had emotional and insightful moments on set, we never could have imagined the way this piece would connect and become a rallying cry for female empowerment. The video has become a call to action, and has effectively changed the meaning of deep-seated stereotypes. For myself, it has been inspiring and affirming in the ability to make a difference through film. I am proud to direct ‘like a girl.'”

Outside magazine delves into “Meru,” Jimmy Chin’s award-winning documentary, which is coming to a theater near you in August

Jimmy Chin‘s feature-length documentary Meru, which won the audience award at the Sundance Film Festival this past January (and has been met with praise from the press), will be hitting theaters across America in August, and we just can’t wait.

The movie—codirected by Jimmy’s wife, Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, whose directing credits include Youssou Ndour: I Bring What I Love—tells of Jimmy and fellow mountaineers Conrad Anker and Renan Ozturk‘s quest to reach the top of Meru Central in the Himalayas by way of a 1,500-foot slice of granite known as the Shark’s Fin.

“It’s a 90-minute explanation of why he and his friends risk so much, and it succeeds not because the climbing is crazy—though it is—but because it’s a well-told coming of age for three mountain-obsessed men who refuse to give up on their dream despite the demands of adulthood,” writes Outside magazine in a feature on Meru published in the July issue. “Rather than try to boil down the feeling into something pithy, the film is an incremental meditation.”

Notes Jimmy, “I finally said what I’ve been trying to say for so long.”

Learn more about Meru, see stills from the movie, and watch the official trailer at merufilm.com.
