Boyko Helms Lee Clow-Focused Film and Here Are Some Trailers

 

In case you haven’t heard, the ADC Festival of Art + Craft will be invading Miami Beach from April 7-9 and among the notable events that will take place is the premiere of a new documentary film series from former Ogilvy CCO/VCU Brandcenter director, Rick Boyko, dubbed InspirADCion (don’t shoot the messenger in regards to the title). The first installment in the series, which will premiere April 8, features TBWA\Chiat\Day figurehead, Lee Clow. Sure, his agency’s taken a couple of hits in the last month or so (now reportedly Crate + Barrel loss, too, which spies were hinting at last week), but Clow remains arguably one of the most notable names in the industry and will likely draw a fair amount of ADC Fest attendees to the film (well, we can only assume since we’ll be stuck in NYC). As you’ll see above and below, Clow shares his thoughts and insights on everything from agency namesakes Jay Chiat and Guy Day to Steve Jobs as well as topics like education (after the jump). Guess we’ll just have to wait for the full film to pop up online eventually.

Kevin Nealon Has 99 Problems, Homeless Pets Being One of Those

Kevin Nealon, who the kids best remember as the stoned old politician on Weeds and the grown-ups know from his stint on SNL in the late 80s and early 90s, is here with a message for you. While there may be nothing you can do about glaciers, bulimic insomnia, or skateboarding in hospitals, you can remember to spay or neuter your pets or adopt some homeless, sad-eyed puppies from an animal shelter. You didn’t listen to Bob Barker‘s parting words on every episode of The Price is Right, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still time to make a difference.

The campaign, which includes billboards on the top the above spot, is the result of pro-bono work from Chiat-affiliated shop Let There Be Dragons for No-Kill LA. If you can’t make an accurate inference from its name, the organization seeks to prevent the euthanization of homeless animals in the Los Angeles area.

Find out more about Let There Be Dragons, which is being spearheaded by Mr. Lee Clow himself, by visiting their website here. Also, take a moment to admire the agency’s “office,” which looks like Sisqo’s tour bus circa 1999.

ADC Announces 2011 Hall of Fame Class

The Art Directors Club inducted four new members into its Hall of Fame, which already counts the likes of Andy Warhol, Leo Burnett, Jay Chiat, Walt Disney and Milton Glaser.

The 2011 HOF class includes W+K partner/ECD John C. Jay (pictured), who took his talents from Bloomingdale’s to Portland back in 1993 and subsequently helped establish the agency’s offices in Shanghai, Tokyo and Delhi. Other inductees include Joe Pytka, director of over 5,000 commercials who recently helmed what were essentially reboots of his old spots including one for PepsiMax and another for McDonald’s. The final two in the ADC 2011 HOF class are art director/designer Ruth Ansel and painter/illustrator/SVA chairman Marshall Arisman.

ADC board members and associates including AKQA’s Rei Inamoto and Taxi chairman Paul Lavoie selected the Hall of Famers, who will be inducted at a black-tie benefit gala in NYC on Nov. 10.
