How to Kill a Pitch - @MercuryLabs & @AdSaint
From their blog:
"AdSaint’s short film about life inside an agency – “How to Kill a Pitch” – premiered last night at the production studio of Mercury Labs (AdSaint is produced and directed by Mercury Labs). You could say we killed it. Agency people came from around town to to the premiere, and we got a lot of laughs at the satirical look at a pitch meeting. The next step is to turn this idea into a full fledged comedy series."
"Big changes have happened over the years in the St. Louis advertising industry, and we tend to get lost in the national conversation. This isn’t anything new, but we figured what better place to show the new face of agency life than here in our humble and brilliant city? And it just so happens that we at AdSaint are also the filmmakers behind Mercury Labs, and we have one of the only RED cameras in town along with the talent and passion to direct narrative short films."
"We also have a lot of creativity in town (yeah, that’s you). And are slowly building a community of talented people that could collaborate on a larger scale to do things like attract more national brands to work with St. Louis agencies. (That is one of the Big Hairy Audacious Goals of AdSaint, after all.) We’d like to get there one of the ways we know best, by telling good stories through filmmaking. And before you know it, we’ll be producing a comedic web series that gets national attention."
We give up.
