I’m planning to shoot a professional MMA fighter nov 10&11. The idea is to make an interview/documentary no longer than 2 minutes and shoot cinematic b-rolls of him training.

Here’s a question: do any agencies value in-house production capabilities? I.E. have staff directors/DPs that can do more than operate a DSLR? If so, who are they? Thanks

I’ll post a few things see if anyone has interest. Question for agency producers: What would spark your interest in a director aside from ‘hype’. Meaning a less established name?
