GEORGIA DODSON
Georgia Dodson, Meaning of Robots

Although Georgia Dodson (W&M ’04) hails from Bland, Virginia, her life has been anything but. At 17, she escaped the Appalachian holler in which she was born; at 21, she found herself serving dinner to David Lee Roth on the Lower East Side. A storyteller at heart, she edited Matt Lenski’s “Meaning of Robots,” which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and screened at SXSW and MoMA’s New Directors/New Films. Her collaboration with The Mercadantes and Droga5 on Prudential’s Day One Stories won a Gold Lion at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, landing Georgia her first Super Bowl spot.  She is currently a film and commercial editor at wax.tv in NYC.
