Private Project

The Pitch

The Pitch is a satirical short film that spoofs the advertising industry by imagining a potential collaboration between chicken nuggets and bluetooth speakers. Starring Lourdes Hernández, it follows a call between an agency creative and director trying to one up each other on the most important product of the year...vegan chicken nuggets. Ridiculous, absurd, yet only too real, The Pitch is a commentary on the agony of the creative process until it all becomes a mess.

Director Biography - Eno Freedman Brodmann

Eno Freedman is a commercial and music video director, designer, and classically trained musician. His voice gravitates towards mindful comedy and tasteful satire. Usually painted in rich colors, his filmic worlds try to make the audience laugh and then also feel heartwarmed. His muses are Pedro Almodovar, Charlie Kaufman, George Carlin and Matthew Frost. 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. His work as a director includes campaign films for Samsung, Soulection, Tidal, Ultra Records, L’Imperatrice, Cherokee, and Anne et Valentin. His training and passion for sound has landed him opportunities to curate music for LVMH, Soho House, Art Basel Miami, and Norwood Arts and many music-geared projects. Originally from New York City and an NYU Tisch graduate he currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

Director Statement

After working in treatments in-house for a while, my mind was a melting pot of references and buzz words. It was overwhelming to switch modes from different products and looks every day. Our office would do artsy pitches for an alcohol brand, then a fashion campaign, and then aluminum foil or paper towel comedy ads. The wild variety somehow fused in my head to make this idea. I also really wanted to write a love letter to the creative armies and producers that don’t get to see their project see the light of day. There’s an incredible amount of dead ideas and jobs that deserve to see the light of day. It breaks my heart to know how much art doesn’t get seen in the end.
