Creator/Director, Gemal Woods
I started this journey with The Angle in the summer of 2010 as a way to share voices from different places. My hopes are that this project reaches diverse corners of the world and creates a network of perspectives that blend with art and innovative thinking.

Host, Paige Hernandez
Every production is an opportunity to learn something new—meet someone new. Trying to give light to voices seldom heard is also an exciting part of being involved in a project like the Angle. I only hope the viewers are as excited as I am when we’re making the episodes.
