Paul Newman RIP

My company, Motion Inc, shot this commercial with Paul Newman for the Ned Lamont campaign. I was unlucky enough to be on another shoot the day the call came in that Newman was available to speak on Lamont's behalf. My business partner Glenn Orkin shot the spot, and his impression of Newman was that he was very normal, unpresupposing, and concerned that the words he was going to read, words he had a part in writing, made sense to the audience. They made sense then, and more now. Too bad enough people didn't listen to Newman. A fine actor and a great humanitarian, gone.
