About Ramaa Mosley:
At age sixteen, Ramaa Mosley made her first film, the Laurel Springs environmental documentary, We Can Make a Difference. The film, which focused on the impact of global pollution on children, was screened around the world, and won a United Nations’ Global 500 Award in Geneva, Switzerland. That same year, Ramaa enrolled at Bennington College, where she studied theater, literature and photography. After college, Ramaa was hired by the Dutch government to direct a documentary on the Aymara Indians of Bolivia. Within months, Ramaa had seven offers to sign as a director with the top commercial companies, and soon was directing music videos for bands such as the B-52s, Brendan Benson, Creed, and Five for Fighting. Ramaa directs award-winning national and international commercials for clients such as Adidas, Powerade, PGA, Pedigree, Walmart, and ESPN.
Ramaa won the Best Director award at the First Glance Film Festival for her short film Grace. In 2011, she won the Audience Choice Award at Dance Camera West for her film In Dreams I Run Wild. Currently, Ramaa is in post-production for her feature film directing debut, The Brass Teapot, starring Juno Temple, Alexis Bledel, and Michael Angarano (based on the comic book of the same title).
