Mo Scarpelli is a Brooklyn-based filmmaker and multimedia producer. From journalistic coverage to non-profit activism to conveying the ethos behind a brand, Mo uses stories to connect people, purposes and ideas. Mo spent more than two years directing, shooting, editing and producing media for the non-profit organization charity: water. From Ethiopian villages to Bangladeshi slums to cocktail parties in New York City, Mo covered the stories surrounding charity: water’s work in photography, video and text. She also launched and maintained the charity: water blog, managed the org’s social media campaigns, and oversaw the style and tone of charity: water’s online voice. Before that, she managed multimedia content and reported for The Wall Street Journal. And before that… she earned a Bachelor’s in Journalism at the University of Missouri, where she also spearheaded multimedia storytelling for traditional news outlets such as KOMU-TV 8 (Mid-Missouri’s NBC affiliate), KBIA radio and The Columbia Missourian. Mo’s available for freelance work and always excited to talk about new ways to tell stories. Just shoot her an email ( mo[at]moscarpelli[dot]com ) or Tweet at her (@moscarpelli).
