American Express Premieres Mindy Kaling's Journey During the Oscars

Our collaboration with American Express debuted during the 2015 Oscars showing a day in the life of Mindy Kaling: an "unlikely leading lady."

Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project) presents her story of making it in Hollywood, overcoming the adversity of people telling her that "they don't put girls that look like me on TV." Her journey is a powerful one. Watch it here.

The track "Birth" by Keen Collective heightens the contemplative nature of the commercial, yet also presents a playful tone with string plucks and oohs & ahhs bouncing along in a joyful, curious manner.
