About the Project

To explore the shifting way we see our culture, our politics and ourselves, Todd VanDerWerff weaves together personal reflection, sharp analysis and clear insight to explain why we visually represent ourselves the way we do on television and film. He’s the leading voice online with an in depth knowledge of the subject that allows him to not just masterfully write about the final product, but also the behind-the-scenes process of how it gets made. He also constantly partners with our visuals team to create inventive new story formats, from the interactive breakdown of horror movie scenes to two-minute videos that mix wit and empathy to explain Mad Men.
