Sundance Films: Art & Copy

Title: Art & Copy
Director: Doug Pray
Potential Major Release Date: No known release date beyond Sundance

Summary: Explore the fascinating and sometimes mysterious world of advertising with this compelling documentary from filmmaker Doug Pray that features a host of interviews with some of the biggest names in the business. Meet the talented minds who created taglines forever embedded in the American psyche, including "Just Do It," "Where's the Beef?" and "Got Milk?" Hal Riney, Ed Rollins and many others share their insights (NetFlix).

Thoughts: This is the number one documentary I'm looking forward to this year. Doug Pray is easily one of the best, most creative directors out there. He not only captures his subjects, he creates films that embody them. Yes, Art & Copy is about advertising and it clearly won't win an award because the story won't 'impact the world' but seriously, this just looks like great film. I'm already claiming this as my favorite of 2009, so all you other documentaries better bring you're a-game.
