Art and Copy: The Movie

Art and copy is a way of life for those of us in the advertising profession. Art and Copy, the movie from the One Club, opens in select cities (NY, Chicago, Denver, Seattle - sorry no Philly) August 21, 2009. For those of us not able to make it to one of the select theaters in that very short list of cities, we can probably catch it on The Sundance Channel one of these days - since the film has been dubbed an "Official 2009 Sundance Film Festival Selection," in addition to having won a couple of other awards.

And an overview/blurb about the flick, courtesy of artandcopyfilm.com:

"ART & COPY is a powerful new film about advertising and inspiration. Directed by Doug Pray (SURFWISE, SCRATCH, HYPE!), it reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time -- people who've profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry. Exploding forth from advertising's "creative revolution" of the 1960s, these artists and writers all brought a surprisingly rebellious spirit to their work in a business more often associated with mediocrity or manipulation: George Lois, Mary Wells, Dan Wieden, Lee Clow, Hal Riney and others featured in ART & COPY were responsible for 'Just Do It,' 'I Love NY,' 'Where's the Beef?,' 'Got Milk,' 'Think Different,' and brilliant campaigns for everything from cars to presidents. They managed to grab the attention of millions and truly move them. Visually interwoven with their stories, TV satellites are launched, billboards are erected, and the social and cultural impact of their ads are brought to light in this dynamic exploration of art, commerce, and human emotion."

If you dig the movie so much, you can become a fan and follow it on Facebook.

This is definitely on my list of "must sees."
