generally people in the creative industries are nicer and drama free, but when they melt down they really melt down. I’ve worked on a few big movies, famous artist music videos - they’ve all been lovely. Worked for a small scale entertainment company, was a complete nightmare.

in the corpo world I have found very few people that are just chill, but I work with a lot of startups with VC funding - so likely a lot of pressure and billionaire bootlickers. Worked for a large TV shopping channel, old money, it was like a competition to see who could be the most bigoted; worked for a newly minted $50MM startup, everyone trying their hardest to be a cool rude dude who could out-cuss Gordon Ramsay.

I remain incredibly nice, thoughtful, understanding, professional, my LinkedIn is filled with positive recommendations.

it appears the guy works for an Asian satellite of a major advertising agency. Not an entirely unreasonable ask at small scale, but generally people are going to be really good at one item on that list, and sub-par on the rest.

I can use premiere, photoshop, illustrator and create pretty decent stuff, but I am nowhere near a pro.

the right will turn on Trump, but not until he’s guaranteed useless, then you won’t be able to find anyone who voted for the guy.
