Dyllan McGee is a documentary filmmaker and a founder of MAKERS.

From MAKERS:

After researching it a bit, we could see why. As filmmakers, the thing we found most surprising – and intriguing – about this story is that it’s so vast and also so private. It includes not only the story of feminism and the political change taking place for women over the past 50 years, but also the personal stories happening behind the scenes of women fighting for equality in the workplace and at home. Documenting this collective would present the unique challenge of multiple narratives.

But we were excited by the challenge and instead of starting with a film, we developed a digital first concept – a living library as we like to call it. We knew that if we could conduct over 100 interviews with groundbreaking women form all walks of life, edit each interview into a short compelling story, and put them online in a dynamic video archive, we could tell that vast and personal story without being confined to a single narrative of a film. And then we could build a documentary from the ground up out the best material and not worry as much about what stories we were leaving out.
