///About "Elevator Pitch"

This commercial was born over a plate of chicken fingers at Barney’s Beanery.  It started out on an epic scale (stop-motion animation, fireballs (?)), then progressively slimmed down into what you see now. 

In the end, we decided to satisfy three main goals:

  1. Shoot at one location…
  2. …with just a small group of people…
  3. while showcasing Anderson’s entrepreneurial spirit, good heart, strong intellect, and genuine diversity.

We’re extremely proud of the outcome.  We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it!  And remember to take the elevator from now on...
