Melina Matsoukas: Before Insecure, I Hadn’t Found Narrative Story I Wanted To Tell

Meet Melina Matsoukas, the video director of "Formation" and the executive producer and director of "Insecure."

Stats: Since creating groundbreaking images for Beyonce‘s “Formation” and Rihanna‘s “We Found Love,” Melina Matsoukas has joined forces with Issa Rae for Insecure.

First step: “In college I interned at a production company and spent a lot of time on sets. I love music videos and felt I could be experimental and hone my craft in that genre, so I started there.”

Expansion: “Before Insecure, I hadn’t found a narrative story I wanted to tell. When I read the pilot script, I thought, Wow! This is my life on the page! I knew I could visualize that voice.” Winning: “Knowing that people relate to the show gives me so much joy.”
