WHO WE ARE:
Founded by commercial production veteran John Ehrenfeld, The Directors Syndicate is a talent management agency that represents a roster of freelance commercial and viral directors to our production company and rep clients throughout the United States. We never contact advertising agencies and we are not a production company.
WHAT WE DO:
After being contacted by a production house and based on the concept that is provided us, we’ll edit a custom demo reel and deliver it almost instantly through Wiredrive. After being notified that a director will participate in the bidding process, we will help facilitate the conference call and treatment and after the award work with the production company to coordinate the director’s schedule and prepare all applicable deal memos and invoices.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT:
We believe that production companies can maximize their opportunities when they have a broad selection of directorial options available to them. Some don’t have the right director on their roster to pursue a specific project, while others may not have directors on staff at all. We assist them in filling that void. With over twenty years of experience on both the production and agency side, we speak the same language that our client’s do and understand the complexities and nuances that go into successfully pursuing a project.
Our directors are non-exclusive, meaning they are available to any production company in the country on a first-come, first-serve basis. We believe that nothing is more harmful to directors and production companies than an agency producer receiving a director’s reel from multiple companies and we avoid this by keeping careful track of all inquiries and holds. We also understand the role that a rapid response plays in the business environment today and accordingly, we make ourselves vailable from 7AM PST to 6PM PST five days a week. We often can be reached after hours and during the weekend and we reply to e-mails, phone calls and text messages promptly.
