OLD FASHIONED TABLE READ

An little old-fashioned seaside table read. Getting everyone on the same page… from client to agency to crew to talent… often comes down to a simple table read. This one is from earlier this week, on location at Dockweiler Beach in Southern California.  Big thanks to JACKERY for trusting us with their incredible outdoors brand.

AFM WEEK: POWER OF PRESENTATION

Whether they be investors, distributors, networks, or brand clients… If your concept can’t hold the attention of your own stakeholders— those stakeholders will never believe your concept is strong enough to hold the attention of your audience. Creative is everything. But presentation helps. Good luck to everyone at American Film Market this week.
