doublewide media is happy to announce the launch of director Autumn Tarleton's newest assignment: a collaboration with NYU Langone Medical Center and Munn Rabôt agency on a series of documentary short films. The series highlights key personnel at NYU Langone Medical Center as part of their successful "Made for New York" campaign. Continuing a long history with doublewide media’s success in making effective documentary content for corporate and advertising clients, the series positions each participant as an integral part of both NYU Langone and New York City by emphasizing their unique attitude. By placing the participants in the bustling streets of New York, the stories connect NYU Langone Medical Center directly to the people it serves.
Tarleton is currently in post-production on a documentary film she co-directed (with Editor Stacey Foster) about Mac Premo, a Brooklyn artist who sees trash as his treasure. She is also in development with director Lauren Wolkstein on a scripted web series called "Wild Heart." Wolkstein and Tarleton previously co-produced the short film "Jonathan’s Chest," directed by Christopher Radcliff, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Tarleton produced "Animals Distract Me," which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and was written and directed by Isabella Rossellini. This docu-fantasy film starring Rossellini explores a “day in the life” of the animal-obsessed star. Her first feature length documentary, "Windfall," shows the struggle a small, rural town in upstate New York faces when an industrial wind turbine project is proposed in their area. "Windfall" premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 DOCNYC Festival. Other documentary credits include "Burt’s Buzz," a documentary about the iconic Burt’s Bees co-founder Burt Shavitz and "3 Points," a film that follows basketball star Tracy McGrady as he visits Darfur refugee camps in Chad. She has also produced multiple projects for Eli Lilly & Co., including "Jay Cutler’s Journey with Diabetes," a documentary web series about the Chicago Bears quarterback, and two films on juvenile diabetes produced in Nepal and the Democratic Republic of Congo, respectively.
In the commercial, television and digital realms, Tarleton has produced content for Hospital for Special Surgery, Girls Scouts, NYU Langone Medical Center, Planet Green, Sundance Channel, VH1 Classic, and GQ Magazine. She is a member of the Producers Guild of America and New York Women in Film and Television.
At doublewide media, Tarleton frequently works with directors Jody Shapiro, Ed Lachman, and Lauren Wolkstein, and editor Stacey Foster, each of whom is available for projects.
