The Pitch

Eno Freedman

Little Bear Studios

An ad agency and a director duel out the vision for the trendiest chicken nugget of all time. An ode to the agony of the creative process and a construction / deconstruction of an idea. ‘The Pitch’ is a short film by Eno that spoofs the advertising industry by following a call with an agency creative and director trying to one up each other on the most important product of the year...vegan chicken nuggets. It offers commentary on the agony of the creative process until it all becomes a mess.

Eno Freedman is a commercial and music video director, designer, and classically trained musician. His voice gravitates towards mindful comedy and tasteful satire.

He began as the in-house Creative Associate at award-winning commercial production company PRETTYBIRD. Prior to PRETTYBIRD, Eno worked with A-list directors and development teams at Wanda, Anorak, Somesuch, and Iconoclast studying the intensity and comedy of the pitch process.
