Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with working directly with ad agencies. Any advice would be most welcome – thanks.May 10, 2018 at 7:20 am #30061
The ones I’ve done business with have a stable of writers who compete for the same job, often with a super quick turnaround time. Not for the faint of heart, or large of ego! As always, personal introductions/connections are highly valued.May 10, 2018 at 5:21 pm #30069
I never worked directly with an ad agency, but I did an internship with a big time production house (Crushing Music) back in 2002 (they are out of business now). I couldn’t get a job with them, so I tried freelancing for a few of NYC based houses. As UpFromTheSkie said it is high pressure, very competitive, need a great mix, with a quick turnaround. Freelancing can work if you find the right production house to work with. There are a bunch of them in NYC you could try.
