January Luncheon - Creative Series

  • Scalo 3500 Central Avenue Southeast Albuquerque, NM, 87106 United States (map)

For years, Derekh Froude had an idea for a show about the inner lives of dogs. Today, that idea has turned into a pilot. Hear how Derekh, a New York copywriter by day and animator by night, turned a daydream into a pitch short, and how that pitch turned into a pilot. Derekh will share his thoughts on storytelling, working with the talents you have to progress your career, and give advice on pitching to the Death Stars of the entertainment business.

Derekh Froude is an award-winning ACD/Copywriter and animation director based in New York. By day, Derekh works in advertising, writing campaigns for Adobe, Hugo Boss, and other global brands. By night (or more commonly also by day, like early in the morning before work, or on the weekends, or whenever is convenient, really) Derekh writes, illustrates, and animates his own projects. One such project is currently in development at Nickelodeon. Derekh brings his passion for storytelling to both the brands he works on and the animated characters he creates.
