Executive Writer/ Producer Andrea Palombella led her team at AlterEgo in creating the trailer for the world premiere of a new film chronicling the attack on the U.S. Capitol. JANUARY
6TH, a feature-length documentary created by Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Gédéon and Jules Naudet (9/11, NOVEMBER 13TH: ATTACK ON PARIS and THE PRESIDENTS GATEKEEPERS) and distributed by discovery+.
AlterEgo, co-founded by Partner and Executive Creative Director Heather Roymans, created the trailer and corresponding promos for the world premiere of JANUARY 6TH, and the project team included women in the roles of Creative Director, Executive Writer/ Producer, Editor and Researcher/ Production Assistant. The promos are airing internationally, and the trailer has been included in national coverage about the film, including the New York Times, MSNBC and Deadline Hollywood. The film aired on CNN January 7th and is currently streaming on discovery+.
Distinct from other films about the insurrection at the Capitol, the documentary takes the audience through a moment-by-moment recounting of the day’s events as they unfolded. It runs two-and-a-half hours and includes more than 50 first-hand accounts from law enforcement officers, Congress members (both democrats and republicans), their staff and journalists who lived through the siege.
