This morning, Jon Kane received an email from an impressed client.
Jon & [Spills],Now that the Upfronts for [Important Company] are fully underway, I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for the incredible job you did. The response has been overwhelmingly positive amongst the staff and the management.You took our old sizzle tape – a tired, bland and ineffective branding piece and brought it to life. The only credit that I deserve was thinking of you in the first place, and then getting out of your way. The music, the graphics, the timing, the pacing, the choices, the tonality – everything gels into a comprehensive piece that takes your breath away.Yes, it’s only a sizzle piece for a cable network. A cable network whose shows are not slick or high art. But you were able to give it humanity and to unapologetically elevate it to pop culture relevancy. Kudos to you and your staff for making us look so good. I look forward to many, many more projects with you in the future.Regards,[Important Man]
Jon Kane responded:
Thanks [Important Man]. Likewise it was a pleasure working with you as well, and re-connecting personally.I hope you don’t mind that I made a huge printout of your letter, taped it to my bedroom ceiling, and lay under it, nude, writhing joyfully like a kitten on catnip, as I read it aloud, repeatedly.Is that weird?
