AN ANECDOTE WITH STEFAN SUBOTICH

Client: Big Timing Comedy
Released on
Funny or Die

An Anecdote showcases the art and craft of comedic, verbal storytelling.  Think The Moth series but for the screen. Or a theatrical one man show with creative camera moves, clever editing, dramatic lighting, and rotating sets.

This episode features Stefan Subotich, co-founder of Big Timing Comedy, as he shares the story of the day his first and only daughter was born. It is a humorous retelling of one of the most special moments of any person’s life, but told from the perspective of a comedian who never shies away from earnestness. 

ROCK BOTTOM RETIREMENT

Client: The Oxford Club, an Agora Publishing company

Desperate measures are taken when a middle aged man feels the pressure of a non-existent retirement.

Rock Bottom Retirement is a scripted, branded short film that was conceived, written, and produced in coordination with Oxford Club Films, the internal production studio at The Oxford Club. Starring William L. Thomas of Veep and House of Cards and co-written by Rafael Alvarez, former writer for HBO's The Wire. 

BOWIE ON BRANDING

A tribute to David Bowie

A visionary brand agency staffed entirely by different versions of David Bowie onboards a green new hire.

Released a few months after the death of one of the most iconic brands of all time, the story centers on a recent green agency hire, David Jones (also Bowie's birth name), who lacks the inspiring charisma and whimsical identity of his new colleagues. A bizarre onboarding meeting takes place between David and two quirky Bowie personas driven to reject the ordinary, embrace courage and push David to make something (or someone) of himself. 

Bowie On Branding is a satire that impugns stodgy, stuffy, and traditional-minded ad agencies that do little to inspire clients and which focus more on smoke, mirrors and brandspeak than real creativity and innovation.
