STEP 1: Learn about us at http://www.quirky.com. If you fall in love, continue.
STEP 2: Let’s have a real convo. My name is Ben (Ben Machado, that is), not “Dear Sir.” You’ve got a beautiful standard cover letter you use to apply other job postings. Cool, but that will not land you this job. Instead, send me your demo reel or any videos you’ve made or worked on and a very brief personal note explaining why you think you’re the perfect fit for this position.
