Decline pitches from clients you know be shady or hopeless. If you don't you only have yourselves to blame. Same advice applies to film companies. If you don't like the smell of the brief don't pitch. Set some criteria for ...
To be fair, most 'major' Directors don't actually work on their own pitches much; they give it to a "Director's Assistant" aka treatment team who write the treatment based on quick notes, find lots of lovely visual reference and write ...
Great innings Scott. Well done. It was good fun working alongside you on The Warehouse client.
Maybe pitches are a concentrated example of how inefficient agencies have become? So many influences and opinions involved a whole lot of resource goes up in smoke on a project that could have been done more simply with fewer more ...

Who's it for: Ecostore by DDB
Why we like it: For its first brand campaign, Ecostore is making itself heard with a powerful message about the future that will have the audience questioning their outlook. As a brand that promotes itself as being safe for consumers and the world they live in, examining the dichotomy between the optimism of youth and the pessimism of the older generation shows our environment doesn't have to be set for a future of melted ice caps and deforestation. There is hope out there and clearly, Ecostore wants to be apart of it.
Who's it for: Flick Electric by Special Ad Service
Why we like it: While many people have their aha moments in the shower or while exercising, others, according to Flick Electric, have them while performing taxidermy on birds. It may be an odd image for a power company, but the tongue-in-cheek approach shows the company is willing to have a bit of fun as it goes about recruiting new customers.
Who's it for: Jockey New Zealand by Parlour
Why we like it: It's hard to ignore the obvious appeal of seeing the All Blacks strip down to their Jockeys for the entirety of the video and for those who aren't as fazed by what lies beneath the black jersey, it's an insight into what the boys get up to off the field. Apparently, Anton Lienert Brown enjoys peanut butter on toast and sailing. And while special guest and former Shortland Street star Will Hall doesn't strip down completely, a special mention has to be given to his bravery to sit alongside the undressed All Blacks in just Jockeys and a robe.
