In the fifth week of people testing the Gothamist Interview waters, we have our first team - Aaron Dobbs and Lily Oei:


Aaron Dobbs and Lily Oei have known each other for eight years while toiling at the same entertainment conglomerate. Raised on opposite coasts, they realized there was common ground in their Jewish Asian backgrounds, primarily on Christmas Day.

Aaron whiles away the hours neglecting his day job by posting to Out of Focus. Lily has written for Variety and Indiewire.

Welcome, Aaron and Lily, whose respective blogs and articles we've been reading for a while. Today, they interview film producer Diana Williams (whose Our Song is an underseen gem about three girls in Brooklyn)...and there's a Mad Lib!
