^ yes she filmed them all in one day - given a script - smile....

.....and action!

hopefully she donates her salary to woman charities??

Ross Taggart said...

She wrote these things herself and initiated the format she is not paid for any of this sort of work. Filming them on the same day is good planning and use of resources.

It's not because you're convinced of something that it makes it real. There's nothing saying those are or aren't Emma's words. I also haven't read anywhere whether she was paid for these things or not. Could depend of the organization.

Ross Taggart said...

Probability given her past record and stance on these issues make it more likly she did write own words and is not being paid for this work. She has an extensive record of charity work going back to her HP days. That is a matter of record,

Also on record is that she volunteers to asist in these programs see Sir Ken Robinsons (@SirKenRobinson) tweet on this subject of education I have tweeted to you Eden.

^ and she now has a record of a tax dodger.....

:/

Ross Taggart said...

No she does not and never did actually if we are to deal in fact.

Emma didn't voice the animation. Caraid Lloyd. It literally says in the end credit that she did the voice over. Sounds similar to Emma's voice, but no. I highly doubt she wrote the narration herself. She probably just shot the intro so more people will watch it.

Ross Taggart said...

Obviously she did not do the voice over for the video. But she can string a sentence together so safe to assume she did her bit she does phrase it has a personal request after all.

If you look at the credits Ross, Emma wrote none of this little world comic. She read the text.

OMG This Anon haha

Daff said...

It doesn't matter who wrote the thing Anon, it's a beautiful video (Rolls eyes)

Ross Taggart said...

Not disputing the video insert only That Emma did her intro Anon. It is a serious message effecting real people is Emma part in the production really all you are taking away from the message.

It's a cool video, and it's nice to see Philadelphia get some global recognition. They've been doing stuff like this for decades, before it was adopted by trendy yuppies for expensive restaurants, as is happening everywhere now.

Ross Taggart said...

She is held in high regard as the article in thus thread shows. Feminist like myself credit her with our involvement in equality and other causes. No one is saying she invented them.

I am only correcting since you said she wrote the script, which is not true. Give credit where credit is due, but don't overdue it.

Yeah - one doesn't need to blow her horn all the time with fantasies. Anyone could have presented that important information and many people would have become aware because it is so important- but E. had nothing to do with its creation.

Ross Taggart said...

I actually meant she wrote her own words in the introduction video not the one she introduced first Anon.

I can not know what she contributed to the initiative as she never "Blows her own trumpet" as you put it second Anon. I fact she has become more cautious since taking UN work. She takes her responsibilities very seriously.

Ross, you sound like a Mack Knight as Ross Taggert, that knows her every move because you spend so much time with one another and get all the tidbits over phone and Skype...
Don't you think you sound a bit contrived?

Ross Taggart said...

Nope just pay attention and take a positive view. It is open deliberate choice not a contrivance.
