And we’re back! We know, it feels like forever since we last talked. We missed you more than you can imagine! After a little rebranding, Free the Bid is now Free the Work! We have the same mission and drive, just with a few tweaks and a bit more polish. We still want your profiles to give you exposure. We love to see you getting work because of our platform. None of that has changed. It is just going to be easier than ever to make all these things into a reality!
The following commercials, branded content, short films, and music videos were directed by directors from our database, released this past summer.
See your work on the list? Let’s celebrate! Share across social media—tag us at @FreeTheWork and use the hashtags #FreeTheWork and #HeresTheWork!

What is “Here’s The Work”?
This newsletter represents a curated selection of the commercials, branded content, short films, and music videos that were directed by the talented directors in Free The Work’s global database and released over the months we’ve been away. Moving forward, we will be integrating film, television, webseries, documentaries and short-form projects from our directors as well.
Bear in mind, too, that while this list showcases the work of Free The Work directors, our site also is a one-stop-shop for discovering writers, editors, colorists, composers, and DOPs. A commitment to freeing the work doesn’t just stop at hiring a woman director—enrich your crews with underrepresented creators across production roles!
