Having been a producer for 7 years, I know how stressful bids can be, competing for a low-budget high-concept with a director who tells you he doesn't have the time to do a treatment ("just show them my reel") and blow their minds ("just show them my reel").
So you hire someone to help him and an hour before the meeting, get a 30-slide manifesto that's gonna cost like a feature and doesn't make sense. I'm a creative advisor who understands the urgency, costs and competitiveness that are at the core of each treatment. A rare breed indeed.
You've worked in this industry for almost a decade, you've won awards, you directed over a 100 commercials (some you're not very proud of, but that's okay), and they still want you to sit down and write a director treatment? What do they know?! It's frustrating, I get it, but let's focus on the solution.
I have a troubling photographic memory, I'm good at translating half sentences into coherent ones, I know how to sell a story on page and I don't have ADD (yet). I'm the creative advisor that gets you and knows how to explain you to the rest. Remember, a comprehensive and accurate director treatment doesn't only win over the client, it helps YOU visualize it better.
Yes, I know you're THE creative, but we often forget clients don't have a BFA or spend their days tracking trends on YouTube. Sometimes simply finding the right reference can save you a thousand words explaining how 'crash zoom monkey morphing into a chocolate bar' is going to be awesome. Let me do the work for you.
