Shows are written in a collaboration between Mitch and a talented associate designer. This arrangement offers you one of Mitch’s talented associate designers guided by Mitch’s experience and skill at a significantly LOWER PRICE as compared to a drill solely designed by Mitch.

Both Mitch and the associate will work with you from conception through drill design. Mitch will supervise the drill designer discussing design options, reviewing every page of drill, suggesting drill and show ideas and when necessary writing some of the drill himself to GUARANTEE on-time delivery.
