Has anybody hopped over from an MBB/T2/B4 type of firm to a boutique? Thoughts /perspectives? Would appreciate either a push off the ledge or a pull away from it.

Any advice for someone (a friend) looking to transition from film production to advertising?

I suspect all it’ll take is a break by one of the many people he’s met for coffee, but any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Maybe it’s my experience, but I’m rarely asked to go on a shoot. Which kinda bothers me. We somehow make it work so that the necessary ppl (budget wise) go and I give them what I’ll need from the set. But wouldn’t it make more sense for the CWs to go and get what they’ll eventually need (interviews, etc.)?
