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.

    Thanks for putting this together Dave. It was a good reminder of why I love this industry and the mad people in it. It certainly must have been heady days back then and I really do think we are at the cusp of another creative revolution. Bringing Art & Copy together made magic but we need to throw something else into the mix now: Code. Have a look at this Google led project to "Re-Imagine Advertising":

    There are some really interesting, creative experiences being made and shock-horror - all paid for by advertising dollars.

    I'm glad to stick around in this game. Despite what all those Mashable articles say.

    While there wasn't much of a flow to it (instead a mash of experiences, mad people and retellings) I thought it was a surprisingly good film! It really had me thinking through my design projects and processes, about how to reframe things, find the kernel or truth, how to connect rather than just communicate. Great stuff.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
