I'm Molly Mary O'Brien and this is my website.
I am a writer and video editor. I specialize in making really good videos for media companies, independent business operators, agencies, and artists. I have directed music videos, produced video-centric educational courses, directed livestreams, and edited videos that live on YouTube, TikTok, Reels, IGTV, Facebook, Facebook Live, Snapchat Global Stories, Twitter, Facebook ads, Instagram ads, probably some other social video platforms that have been lost in the sands of time, and even JetBlue TV — yes, the programming that pops up on your seatback screen when you can't decide what to watch!
If you'd like to collaborate on a video, want to hire me for something, or want to see specific work examples or my resume, please get in touch! My email is mollymaryobrien [at] gmail [dot] com.
Here's my most recent reel.
Some examples of my work (if you’d like to see more specific types of work, just ask):
I edited the digital series The Truth Is... for In The Know by Yahoo.
I edited videos for the Logo TV digital series Logo Live.
I directed a livestream for the band Palberta.
I shot and edited this music video for the band Shybaby.
I edited this explainer video for the startup project Exit To Community.
I create videos for the independently-funded music website The Alternative—primarily producing and editing a show called Get Involved, where I interview people in the music industry about what they're working on lately. (if you’re a music person and you’d like to be interviewed - email me ✨)
I am also the co-host and co-producer of the podcast And Introducing: a "podcast about words about music," which is to say a podcast that discusses music writing with a variety of guests.
I have a blog about music called I Enjoy Music, and a newsletter about music called The Molly Zone which you can subscribe to for free here.
Sometimes I blog. I also tweet. I once made a zine! And I post clips of my work on Instagram.
THANKS FOR VISITING
