Been freelancing for two months. Was asked today if my recent freelance work is on my reel. Is this strange?

Not all freelance ends up on your reel/site Whoever asked this is a moron. You can list the places you’ve worked at instead.

It means they’re looking for something that’s not there. It’s fine, just say the reel is up to date and order a sandwich

Strange is when they ask if you have canned tuna experience or dog food experience. Also, I would have answered that my latest gig afforded me the opportunity to manage one of many productions that aren’t worthy of the strong reel I currently have.

I'd just ask if there's something specific they are looking for. Sometimes, busy folks don't update their reel, but have recent work they can link to. Or work they can't link to publicly.

Yes. Just tell them to look at your reel to see your work.

Maybe the person that asked doesn’t know the timeline of how long you’ve been freelance? I’d just show them some ‘recent work’ regardless of if you did it freelance. And if they do know the timeline, still do that, they obviously don’t understand how productions and big campaigns can work 🙄

Has anyone seen good traction on the new-ish Google Discovery ads? My teams have had mixed results here so far, and the lack of placement transparency has been a challenge. Writing ads that can appeal to users on the Google Feed, Gmail, and YouTube seems to be the most difficult part, and different accounts (or even campaigns) have wildly different CTRs, likely indicating Google is preferring certain placements for each.

Agency peeps - When it comes for the need to build processes from scratch for new solutions that serve a scope of work, do your teams expect the Strategist or the PM to do that? Feels like blurred lines given the Strategist has the deepest POV on the contents of the work to be done, but the PM is expected to keep everyone organized…

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute.

I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled.

Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
