Learn about the Real Mad Men



ART & COPY is a powerful new documentary about advertising and inspiration. Directed by Doug Pray, 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,  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 many other brilliant campaigns.

The movie explores:

The path of great ad campaigns like “I (heart) NY,” and Nike’s “Just Do it” to name a few– and examines there path from concept to culture glory.

How some of the great advertisements, like “Got Milk” and “Wendy’s Where’s the Beef?” were almost shot down before they saw the light of day.

Interviews with the real “Mad Men” of the 1960s: William Bernbach, George Lois, and Mary Wells Lawrence.

Seeks out the cultural impact of the advertisements and how they shaped our culture.
