In a recent Huffington Post piece, double-Emmy-nominated director and cinematographer Reed Morano talks about how she breaks down the walls between audience and actor. I love how she’s using all her skills to world-build (she came to her directing interview for The Handmaid’s Tale with a 70-page lookbook and playlist), create emotion, and capture it with an intimate camera.

Of her style, Bustle notes:

She’s perfected a style that has less to do with what you see, but how you feel when seeing it. “I think of myself as an emotional storyteller,” she says. With each tight shot, she puts you in the subject’s shoes, — whether that’s Elisabeth Moss’ Offred on The Handmaid’s Tale, or Olivia Wilde’s grieving mother in her 2015 directorial debut Meadowland, or Beyoncé in the heart-wrenching video for “Sandcastles.”

If she wins, she would be only the second woman to take home the prize.
