Winning at The AICP Awards Is Proven to Alter Personalities
Director Brian Billow (of O Positive) heard that winning an AICP Award – and having one’s work archived by the Department of Film at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) – may be having a strange effect on top creatives in the ad industry. In an investigative film, he uncovers examples of what for years had only been rumored to be the effects of this unique recognition of craft and artistry.
On a recent visit to Deutsch LA, Billow found North American Chief Creative Officer Pete Favat channeling Andy Warhol, even renaming the agency The Factory (in a nod to Warhol’s famous art studio in New York). He’s visited by others afflicted, such as Keith Cartwright, Executive Creative Director at 72andSunny - now transformed into Jean-Michel Basquiat - who arrives for a collaborative session. Susan Credle, Global Chief Creative Officer at FCB finds her inner Frida Kahlo - a seemingly normal occurrence - as she voices her concern over Favat’s extreme behavior.

What is leading them to possess characteristics of noted fine artists? All have work in the AICP Show and AICP Next awards, and thus in MoMA’s film archive. Not to worry though – while these creatives are afflicted, you can still maintain your individuality when you take your rightful place. Or can you?
