Art & Copy @ Egyptian Theatre March 18th

Drake Cooper is excited to announce that we’ll be bringing Art & Copy to Boise on Thursday March 18th and the screening will be downtown at the Egyptian Theatre!

Here is a quick synopsis for anyone who’s unfamiliar:

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.

In short this film is a must see for anyone who’s in advertising, design or any creative field for that matter. We’re currently working out the rest of the details so keep checking back to find out more as we get closer to the date of the screening. One thing’s for sure though…it will be a crazy kick-ass event to gather all of the talented creative types in Boise! For more on the film see the link below.
