MTG_Posterize_S2Melissa Tapper Goldman (Director, Producer), one of Huffington Post’s “10 Women to Celebrate” in 2013, lived in Boston, Albuquerque, New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area while shooting Subjectified, finding odd jobs and interview subjects along the way. She is the force behind Do Tell, the critically acclaimed story-sharing blog, and was a contributing producer for internationally celebrated web series The Outs (2012). Since 2010, she has traveled across the U.S. presenting Subjectified to community groups, campus groups, and classrooms, holding discussions and speaking about issues related to the project: women’s empowerment, media, and activism. Her words have appeared across the internet in outlets like Salon, Huffington Post, The Awl, Lilith, and academic journals related to design. This is her first feature documentary. Prior to Subjectified, she worked as a writer, researcher, percussionist, and designer. Goldman resides in New York City. She holds degrees from the University of Chicago and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
