Yes!!

Just be like “yeah I’m excited about the shoot” or something. You don’t have to be a dick about it. There are a lot of reasons people don’t get to go on shoots and it’s frustrating early in your career to feel you will never get there.

Some years back I actually used to get static from finance about my expenses and one of them mouthed off about going on shoots and what a boondoggle it was. I sat with this person and explained how I had to be away from my 2 year old daughter and newborn son for 7 weeks on the other side of the world. For the first few weeks I didn’t think I’d make it

She never bothered me again.

Its still work. Usually you shoot or edit all day and then have to go back to work on other briefs after dinner. It can be fun but it can also be extremely draining

Just read about Salesforce takeover of Slack for $27.7bn (54% premium and 26x sales NTM), and the subsequent reaction of Salesforce stock -10%

Salesforce is trying to compete with Microsoft, which offers teams bundled with O365 for free, however, the PF rev is only 40% of the MSFT commercial cloud business

The price seems exaggerated, but given the massive potential synergies + impressive unit economics of slack, why has the market reacted so poorly?

Was it a bold move from Salesforce?
