I feel like I'll have a harder time finding a compatible black man to be with because I'm agnostic/non-religious and I genuinely can't remember the last time I met a non-Christian BM. Religion isn't a dealbreaker for me, but I don't want to be pressured into converting and don't my kids to be raised Christian. I've dated WM before but I miss the culture connection.


Anyone have any experiences with the Tennis and Racquet club? Is a membership worth it?

Anyone interested in being a mentor of sorts? I currently don’t have one + feel could be very beneficial. I am new to the broadly syndicated loan IR team at my firm.

Main goal — learn about the business and push myself to make the right career choices early on.

I have been with my current company for the last 14 years. Straight commission position. Since 2013 hey have been trying to rebuild this store. Since working for them we’ve gone through 3 CFO’s and I am on my third BM who will being leaving the company only after a year. There is a new Area leader which is causing bad karma among the team. Strong arm tactics and now we are losing good people again. Ideas on how to deal with this very uncomfortable situation. Stuck between a rock and hard place.


Has anyone made the move from the Corporate bank (coverage) to the IB?


Seriously questioning if advertising and account management is for me anymore. What other career paths have you seen ex account people transition into apart from client side?

Hi friends! Looking for some production companies or reps that can work with a super small budget. Should have some beverage/food experience but definitely lifestyle. There are multiple social units I need to create with different scenarios and I have about $135k for production. Open to shooting internationally as well. Thanks!

If you’re going to AICP LA tomorrow night DM me. Let’s make this dream reality.


Reps, you have a client who you’ve had for less than a year. You’ve helped them secure a couple small jobs in that time span. They book a big job with an agency that isn’t a house account but certain producers and clients at that agency are noted as house accounts. The job came through a reco from one of those house account producers. Do you charge the full 25k commission, even though you didn’t really have a hand in the sale, and the client already had a strong relationship with the agency?


Hi everyone! I know we talked about a contract for freelance directors. Does anyone have one written up yet, or anything that I could easily modify?

Hey guys I just lost the Livley job out of Davis elen. Any of you get it

Hey AIR team,
How do you confirm a company that approaches you from Europe is legitimate? I have a media company from Turkey asking me to quote some animation for them. They have a website, have given their address (which is an actual address on google maps), and have given phone numbers which I haven't tried yet. I have let them know that if we work together, I'd require 50% up front, 35% midway and 15% before delivery of final elements and they say they're fine with that. Anything else?


If you’re in Dallas next Friday come to AIR’s Breakfast Burrito Brunch & Banter the day after AICP Show. Details in flyer!

Producers: how good are you with sharing the shortlist with reps if their submitted directors/talent didn’t make the cut?


Reps how do you handle when a producer requests reels from you then doesn’t watch a single one and completely ghosts you after submission?


Great group for us to have


West Coast and Midwest reps who actually get consistent food and tabletop boards, where you at? I’ve got a director with a great reel of mostly over delivered low budget work, but a strong client list. I’m looking for someone who is a go to resource for agencies with these tops of jobs. I’ve already submitted a form on the AIR website. Thanks :)


Hello! Looking for animators that can work with a production house (so not animation studio but independents) any of you have them on roster? 3D / board is stylized kind of a diorama look. If that makes sense. Basically shoot me reels if you have 3D folks on your roster. If I see something I can share more details. Thanks!

Looking for a docu style director for an elevated Branded / Talking head project. Interview/ b Roll style that can have a POV on adding unique shots/graphics. POC a plus. Subject Matter is highlighting/interviewing business owners and b rolll of their company. Let me know !!
