Houston we have a problem...

You're a director, producer, or creative agency with great ideas you can't wait to pitch. You can visualize in your head how spectacular you're video can be. But as you stare at the cliche writing in your pitch deck while scouring the internet for really bad stock photos, you feel like you're in space where no one can hear you scream.

Luckily there's The Moon Unit; an autonomous collective of ghostwriters and designers who help creatives bring their pitch decks and treatments to life. Besides putting together outstanding work, The Moon Unit's brand is one to behold.

While the rest of us want everybody to know who we are, The Moon Unit makes a concerted effort to maintain their anonymity and confidentiality of their clients. The members of their team even interact with us plebian beings under science fiction aliases.

You can try to ask them for their real name. We did. But no jedi mind trick will undo their dedication toward putting creative first while keeping their indentities in the outer limits.

Cool brand. Out of this world work. How can you go wrong?

We were fortunate to make first contact with Katniss (remember not her real name) who explained how The Moon Unit operates all over the globe to help creatives make their pitches stand out. While we honestly have no idea who she is, (she could be you, we don't know) Katniss gave us an education on the art of the pitch deck, how to make ours better and was gracious enough to present our co-host Justin with a special Moon Unit alias for his soon to be new born child.

We hope this episode helps you explore strange new worlds, seek out new life, new civilizations and boldly go where no pitch deck has gone before.
