success by designing and delivering experiences that make people see brands

"I spend as much time as I can with creators," said Sasha Savic, CEO of

endeavor, but we're changing that, and the response has been overwhelmingly
positive. When you get close to clients, and create something just for them

'kind' of shop you are: you're going to be considered a true partner and
clients will get real value."

directed and edited the internationally acclaimed short films Enemy Closer and
Midday Room, in addition to the feature documentary film "Crocodile in the
Yangtze," winner at the United Film Festival in San Francisco.
