We assist directors, production companies, agencies, and creatives globally with creative research, ghostwriting, treatment or pitch deck design, and creating fixing. 

Think of us as the people that make your problems (big or small) disappear. Some problems have included location research, documentary casting, true stories, library music, mood films, and even once listing all the beauty directors in Egypt. We’re up for (almost) anything.

We spend an “unhealthy” amount of time online and will scour every crevice, nook, and cranny to source exactly what you need to win the pitch. We search through photo books, films, commercials, magazines, websites, doodles, framegrabs, and much more to find you the stills or videos that you need. 

We can string words together for pitch decks, treatments, director briefs, agency briefs, copywriting, and we even dabble in the dark arts of script doctoring. With every project, we work hard to match your personal style and can range between profound and playful. 

Like the shiny red bow, the design we do is what brings everything together. We’ll match your personal style or craft something that matches the tone of the commercial. Our toolbox includes Keynote, PowerPoint, Google Slides, InDesign, and even a website (given enough time).

Working with us is an easy three step process. First, our team lead takes all the project details, unpacking exactly what you need. Then, we assemble the best team for your project and get to work in an 80s montage. Finally, once you’re satisfied with all you need to win the bid, our work is done.
