Group brainstorming is not always the most effective method to generate ideas. They can suffer from rabbit trailing, distractions, groupthink and even idea bias.

Mitchell is providing an opportunity for college students to gain real-world agency experience during a one-week, all-expense paid immersion program. We call it Big Break: Discovering Diverse Talent, and we’re welcoming our sixth class this year.
This agency thrives at the hands of many creative individuals. That’s why when it comes to inspiring and encouraging young imaginative minds, Mitchell is 100% on board. We saw an opportunity to foster new talent in conjunction with the 2015 Bentonville Film Festival, and as a result hosted the first Young Filmmakers Short Pitch Competition. More than 70 filmmakers, ages 21 and under, competed in the event that was designed specifically with visual storytelling in mind.
Sheryl Cambronero and Berenice Osorio were selected as the winners of the competition with their pitch for “Los Flores de Spandra.” Both girls attend the University of the Ozarks, where they are pursing degrees in Film Studies.
