Corporate Avoidance was made by Jon Cohrs and Natalie Mooallem.
Jon Cohrs is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. His work often uses public engagement and site-specific explorations to address global issues. He created OMG TV; an analog TV station that filled the void left behind during the digital transition, which was used as a reference in a Supreme Court amicus brief on creativity and copyright. He has taught at Parsons The New School for Design, Pratt Institute, SUNY Purchase in the Film + Media and Finish Academy of Fine Art. He has also received grants from New York State Council of the Arts, Experimental Televisions Center, FEAST, FutureEverything and fellowships from Eyebeam and the Banff Centre for the Arts.
Currently he is finishing up a feature film about the New Jersey Meadowlands and the anthropocene to be released in the fall 2014.
Natalie Mooallem is a writer, artist, and multimedia producer. With degrees from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and Columbia University’s School of Arts MFA film program, she’s worked in film production and programming, the music industry, and various publications, along with video / art / tech. Her professional experience includes a number of NYC institutions including Miramax, Vice and Tribeca Film Institute, and she’s been hired to work on tons of scripts, advise and consult on both commercial and independent projects, has teaching experience at Tribeca Film Institute, Columbia University and NYFA, and has made stuff in Canada, France and Japan.
For a few years, she worked as a film & video editor and AE artist, where she fantasized about taking sweet, productive-looking breaks, hence Corporate Avoidance.
