In 1961, after rejecting one too many ad campaign pitches for their product, a folding table, six incompetent businessmen receive an ultimatum from their superior to come up with a pitch themselves or they lose their job.
A Table Discussion is a comedy featurette by Burak Aydogan & Steven Lopez that's literally about bringing stuff to the table.
An in-depth satire about collaborations and the many hilarious hurdles we take to bring even the stupidest idea to life. From the smallest group projects to the biggest executive meetings, everyone is looking to take top credit in some way or another (and no one is gonna comply with you so easily).
Doesn't matter how confident or professional you feel you are, A Table Discussion will remind you that even with all the intention and meaning behind your oh-so-great idea, what will the average joe see it as in the end?...
