'Art & Copy' now available on DVD

Picture 1050.pngThe One Club's critically acclaimed documentary 'Art & Copy' is now available on DVD from PBS. The film, which was screened in Australia earlier this month, gives an inside look at the world of advertising and profiles some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time--those people who have profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry.

These artists and writers brought a surprisingly rebellious spirit to their work beginning with the creative revolution of the 1960s. The documentary unveils the stories behind famous campaigns such as Nike's 'Just Do It', 'I Love NY' and 'Got Milk' plus Apple '1984' and the more recent iPod work.

Visually interwoven with the narrative, the film shows how the communications field changed across the globe - TV satellites launch, billboards are erected, and the social and cultural impacts of their ads are brought to light in this dynamic exploration of art, commerce, and human emotion.
 
An Official Selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, Official Selection of Hot Docs Toronto 2009, and winner of Best Director in the category of Documentary Films at the Atlanta Film Festival, 'Art & Copy' has been praised by critics as "A deeply fascinating movie... you'll probably never be able to look at commercials and ads the same way again" (ComingSoon.net).
