Close. Read the f’ing riot act after a first bad day. Had to reshoot after the second day. Director was pissed. Told her that what she shot was unusable after reviewing first day dailies.

Nope. If the creatives are as invested from treatment to tech scout then there has to be a huge random issue on this. Along with a fucked up line producer If you’re talking about a post creative director there is room if they aren’t collaborating. But that’s super rare given they’re running a biz too

Once not easy to do but that pretty much kills your project better to grind through it and then never work with that person or company again.

Recently laid off - is it better to be upfront about your current work situation in resume and job applications or should you appear as though presently employed? Feels like less of a stigma right now due to covid but wondering what’s best practice.

I’ve applied to over 40 jobs since I was laid off in March. Not one click to my portfolio, per analytics. With a family of four, we are being spread thin. Not only is the income desperately needed, but my creative soul needs a release. I would be happy to do typical Art Director work but I’m “over qualified” for that and am never taken seriously when applying for work below CD/ACD. If anyone needs or know of any company needing freelance work, large or small—I’d really appreciate the lead. 🙏

I have a ton of clients on my list. Some are not as active as others but it is a lot. Over 40 and I work in a complex industry with lots of moving parts. My role is more of a combination of product manager and client relations manager. I'm feeling exhausted because there is no system to really track client projects or requests beyond email. I feel like things are easy to miss and just had a situation where I missed a request and the follow up. I get over 200 emails a day minimum.
