Emmanuelle Cuny-Diop started from the bottom and worked her way to the top of the corporate ladder. As an intern at Roc-a-fella records, Cuny-Diop rose through the ranks assisting the entire office and learning everything she could along the way. Her hard work and dedication paid off and now, Cuny-Diop is Vice President of Video Production at Atlantic Records, commissioning music videos for some of today’s hottest artists. Her hands are involved in every part of making a music video from conception to execution.
Cuny-Diop works alongside management teams to source directors, scout locations, cast models and, if necessary, even sit in the edit room. The long and tedious production process is a passion for her and projects like Janelle Monae’s ‘Queen‘ are only adding more fuel to her fire. “You can’t lose that hunger. You can’t get comfortable. Don’t get comfortable because before you know it, there’s something else changing in the game and then you get pushed out.”
