Steele was interviewed by Slate’s Emily Yoffe on the podcast Cinephilia & Beyond, and you can listen to the podcast below.
In the podcast, Steele talks about how she started making movies for younger audiences, what it’s like to create a character and the importance of story in a movie.
In the first part of the interview, she talks about her experience with the rubber products company, Celine, and how she got involved with the company.
In part two, Stelees conversation with Slate’s Jonathan Zittrain begins with how she first got involved in the film industry, and then the rubber company, and what it was like working on a project that she was involved with for years.
She shares how her love of movies inspired her to pursue film, and why it’s such a wonderful medium for storytelling.
She ends with an interesting quote from a movie poster for Celine: “Celine’s the one with the ears.
She’s always there, always listening.”
