Art & Copy
Doug Pray, 2009
Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.
Films fresh from the international film festival circuit, area premieres, award winners, and recent audience favorites.... You'll find films you won't see anywhere else in central Ohio on the Contemporary Screen schedule.
The latest doc from the director of Scratch and Hype!, Art & Copy reveals the work and wisdom of this era’s most influential and creative advertising writers, designers, and idea people. Virtually unknown outside their industry, the people featured in the film—George Lois, Mary Wells, Dan Wieden, and others—were responsible for such memorable campaigns as “Just Do It,” “I Love NY,” and “Got Milk.” Collectively, they brought a rebellious spirit to a business more often associated with mediocrity and manipulation.
