Tom Bassett, Founder & CEO, Bassett Partners

You are pitching your idea to the client. What should be in the creative brief? Brand strategist/filmmaker Tom Bassett has spent the last year probing some of the World’s greatest creative minds about the same topic. The culmination of that search is Briefly, a new free online documentary that explores the creative relationship that exists between the client and those tasked with executing the client’s vision. Tom joins us this week to explain what he’s learned and what he did.

Jonathan Handel, Entertainment/Technology Attorney & Labor Reporter, TroyGould and The Hollywood Reporter

On Friday, the National Labor Relations Board ordered CNN to rehire more than 100 union technicians, compensate more than 200 others, and recognize a unit of the Communications Workers of America as their bargaining representative. Why? Jonathan Handel, Entertainment Labor Reporter for The Hollywood Reporter, explains.
