Young Aspirations/Young Artists

In 1990 I wanted to become a documentary editor, but no one would hire me because I only had television and corporate credits. So I directed and edited a film so that I would have a work sample to show. And it worked! This film launched my documentary editing career, won my first Emmy and landed me in the amazing New Day Films collective. Changed my life. A sweet film featuring my dear friend for 30 years now Jana Napoli and the talented young artists of YA/YA, Inc.

Editor, producer, director: Shirley Thompson

Writer: Robin McCall (now Mayer!)
