Ellie Gravitte is an award winning filmmaker based in New York City. She was the winner of the first ever ABC Women’s Initiative, in which ten finalists were flown to Burbank, CA to pitch a commercial concept to executives at ABC Entertainment Marketing. Of the ten pitches, Ellie’s was selected for production, and she went on to direct the commercial herself, which was eventually awarded the Promax Gold Award for outstanding achievement in entertainment marketing.
