I’m getting a little sick of all the docu style branded content that is out there lately. I’m sure it’s budget driven. Let’s get back to creative writing of scripts, casting, set design. Fun

Amen to the influencers. But as someone who has shot both scripted/storyboarded ads as well as docu-style branded content, I think the docu stuff is way more fun to shoot!

I’ve enjoyed docu style production because I like the challenge. Emphasis on the word “style”. Finding the right cast that’s real people but engaging on film. Finding the right locations. Making it look rich on a shoestring...that’s all very challenging and that’s where the fun is. Anyone can point and shoot, but it often looks just like that. And really, big budgets can make us complacent. Tiny budgets can be a fun puzzle, though they can also be maddening. Making something look spontaneous but actually controlling every element is kind of a thrill. I mean, look at reality television. That stuff is heavily produced and it needs to be! Also I like that those kinds of productions tend to be for longer pieces. I do still love a :30, but I like the challenge of holding attention for a 2:00. In the end, though, we have to keep moving forward. We may never go back to the good old days. They weren’t always that good anyway. Not for everyone. As Don Draper often said (yeah I’m watching Mad Men right now 😃) “Move Forward!” although he rarely skilled when he said it.

I agree with the above comments. I think it’s not just budget related but depending on the category and assuming it’s done well it’s incredible effective. Before I buy a car or take a drug I want to hear from those who’ve been where I might be headed. Yeah I know it’s often formulaic but there’s the challenge. How do you avoid all those doc style cliches like looking out of a window shot from outside, or swings made of tires in a front yard or sad close ups? Well, a good producer demands better. And actually to do it well demands a good producer. To make an unscripted production empathetic and interesting is a lot tougher than shooting a script.

I tend to agree with OP. It was nice when it wasn’t abundant. Need to see more scripts and less 4 minute montages.

Okay, I’m just going to say I’m deeply ashamed that I work for adam&eve DDB London. IMO it’s become a nasty, toxic environment run by robots. Some of the things I’ve heard this week in how they’ve treated people recently has shaken me. So many people are out sick with burnout. So many people are struggling and we pride ourselves on not giving help. I need out. It’s so elite, jumped up and unsustainable.

Hello, all. First time here. I would like to get some advise. I have over 13 years of Food Safety experience in the retail and manufacturing sectors. Recently, I relocated from Dallas to Puerto Rico with the goal in mind to have my daughters closer to family. As you may know, Puerto Rico is huge in pharma and medical device, and there is a lot of opportunities. However, there is not much for food safety professionals, unless you cook. Do you think is time for a career change?
