Michelle Kwan Is Working for Hillary Clinton

  • “Say your name and what you’re doing,” the videographer, whose name is James [Kicklighter], instructs.

    “I’m Michelle Kwan. What am I doing? I — sorry!” she bursts out laughing. “What am I doing?!”

    “You can do this as many times as you want,” James says.

    “I’m Michelle Kwan, former — not former — Olympic figure skater, and I’m the surrogate outreach coordinator,” she tries again.

    “Hi, I’m Michelle Kwan, Olympic figure skater, I am the — this is so hard!” she cracks up again.

Shorts: Digital Edition (2016)

  • Kicklighter’s direction has a kinetic pace to match its subject matter, but always keeps everything on a very human level…[Digital Edition] covers an important topic that I don’t feel has been given much thought in media.

  • It really is easy to see that Digital Edition ticks all the boxes when it comes to how a short documentary should look and make you feel. James Kicklighter and his crew know their craft and with Digital Edition, they have created a documentary that I really enjoyed watching.

Review: “Digital Edition” Follows the Changing World of Journalism

  • Filled with a surprising amount of content for a 28-minute film along with nicely done graphics that balance out the interviews, Digital Edition is an entertaining and informative short doc that will likely resonate most with those who consider themselves to be information geeks and journalistic connoisseurs.

Digital Edition (2016) Review

  • I’ve seen projects from Mr. Kicklighter before, and expected nothing less than a well rounded, polished experience. What I didn’t expect was a topic featuring a much broader scope than the title suggests…a fine short film covering a lot of different aspects from the industry. ‘Digital Edition’ would look right at home on your favorite television channel.
