Respect The Process is a filmmaking podcast focused on directing commercials.

Aug 5, 2023

Steve Williams, Undnyable Partner/Exec Creative Director, joins me in an informative and entertaining chat about making commercials soup to nuts. (We've shot six fun spots for Kaiser Permanente, but we've never been on set together due to that pesky pandemic.) We discuss running the agency from concepting and strategy to shooting the spots. We cover the importance of being nimble with the ability to scale, and how to stay in one's lane. Great talk!

Steve is I’m an experienced and highly-awarded creative leader who believes that simple, disruptive ideas can drive brands and influence culture, no matter the medium or audience. I balance a strong point of view with a love of collaboration.
