What do Michael Jordan, Jennifer Aniston, and a trip to the Grand Canyon have in common? They’re all right here as award-winning director on the Quriosity Productions roster Andrea Mandel stopped by to answer Five Questions with SCREEN. Let’s get to it!
SCREEN: What is your go-to dish that you bring to any Thanksgiving dinner festivities?
ANDREA: Salad! Any tine anyone asks me to bring something they always ask for my famous chopped salad. I love it because I don’t eat meat so I know there will always be something for me to eat.
SCREEN: Most famous person you’ve ever met?
ANDREA: Muhammad Ali and Mike Jordan. My husband and I were very lucky to photograph them the first time they met, for Chevrolet.
[Editor’s Note: Here is a trip back to that historic meeting in 1998]

ANDREA: When my best friend turned 50, we decided to do a rim of the Grand Canyon in a day! Major accomplishment.
SCREEN: What actor would you cast to play you in the studio movie of your life?
ANDREA: Jennifer Aniston.
SCREEN: What’s that TV show you’re a little embarrassed to admit you love to watch?
