We offer creative and strategic leadership from the beginning of the production process."
"Cartilage provides creative, technical and production experts for the creation of integrated advertising campaigns. Each carefully picked teamworks together to deliver a seamless multi-platform initiative from the ground up," Brown executive producer/head of sales Chilo Fletcher says.

"We're the teenage rebel who gets straight As," continues Fletcher. "We're fun, but we understand the business." The company boasts directors like Jaime Travis, hailed by the Toronto Sun as "one of the most original voices in Canadian cinema." Travis won wide acclaim last year for his spot called 'Scooter' which played at the Worldwide Short Film Festival and won Silver at the One Show, Silver in Cannes, a Gold Bessie, Gold ADCC Award, Bronze Marketing Award and a Clio nomination.
