Elena Cohen from Authority Magazine recently interviewed Viviane for their series Inspirational Women In Hollywood: How Viviane Winthrop Is Helping To Shake Up The Entertainment Industry. 

Here are a few highlights from the article:

Can you share a story with us about what brought you to this specific career path?

Out of the blue, I received a text message from an unknown woman who at first said we’re closely related, but then emailed me through ancestry.com to tell me she thought I was her sister. And it turns out she really is my sister! Then she said I have more brothers and sisters! Needless to say, I didn’t know any of this and it turned my world inside out and upside down, but it has been and remains the best blessing ever.

I kept thinking this is the craziest story, something I would only see in a movie. So, I reached out to my new third cousin who works in Hollywood, and he said his cousin would be able to help me write a screenplay. I had no intention of making a film when I called Adam, but his response was, “Your life is happening right now. You really should film it now.” I jumped into the complete unknown and learned by the seat of my pants on how to create a movie and Adam K. Singer became my producer. He’s the one who brought everyone together so we could make my film. Sergio Miranda became our editor, and both were instrumental in bringing this film to fruition. And a huge shout-out to our composer extraordinaire — Shie Rozow. His music for my film is breathtaking.
