Renaissance Woman

Foundation editor, Suzie Moore and her husband, Charles shot a piece while on vacation in New Orleans this past February which they titled “Crescent Like the Moon”. Suzie had read a brief that the Renaissance Marriott was looking for filmmakers to create a film which would properly convey the very best highlights of a city within close proximity of a Marriott Renaissance property.

This could include restaurants, shops, bands, galleries, museums, neighborhood characters , anything that adds to the unique flavor of the local area and wider city.

Suzie and Charles rented a camera for four days and documented their travels through the Big Easy, which they had never visited before. Suzie edited the final piece and submitted it to the MOFILM New York 2011 Make an Ad contest.

And it really was no surprise that they won the grand prize! A trip to New York and $8,000! The filmmaking couple stayed at the Renaissance in Time Square and met John Landau, Producer of Avatar and Titanic, who was hosting the awards event. Says Suzie of the experience, “It was really inspiring to meet the other brand winning filmmakers from all over the world.”
