Gail Mooney : Director/Cinematographer/Photographer
Gail Mooney is copartner of Kelly/Mooney Productions, a visual communications company based in the New York metro area. Mooney has over 30 years of experience shooting for international magazines, major corporations, and institutions. Her clients have included National Geographic, Smithsonian, Travel & Leisure, AT&T, American Express, and KPMG.

A lifelong storyteller, Mooney began her visual storytelling as a photographer. In 1999 she started producing and shooting video projects. Since then, her company has become fully integrated with motion. She has produced three short documentaries: Freedom's Ride, a story about two groups of high school students retracing the civil rights movement of the 1960s; The Delta Blues Musicians; and Through the Hearts and Hands of Children about the New Jersey Youth Symphony.

Mooney's true passion is to use her craft, be it via still imagery or motion, to create awareness and effect change. Her first feature-length documentary, Opening Our Eyes, was a joint project with her daughter, Erin Kelly. They circled the globe seeking ordinary people who are making our world a better placeĀ—one person at a time.
