Iñárritu and Brad Pitt came to Owens to create a series of quirky Japanese jeans commercials. For Quiksilver he designed the video signage for their Times Square, NYC store. And President-Elect Barack Obama’s team picked him to cut the candidate’s half-hour network broadcast in November 2008. With a deep production background, he’s cut on on the beach with Guy Ritchie, on stage with choreographer Vincent Paterson in Toronto, and supervised visual effects at 15,000 feet on Mont Blanc.
Philip has at various times been a director, visual effects supervisor, CGI and stop-motion animator, satellite imagery analyst, DJ, music journalist and hydrologist. Currently, he is editing a feature documentary on the influential life of filmmaker Roger Corman."
For better and for worse, advertising infiltrates our modern
society, becoming an important factor in the fiber of our culture and point of
reference. Sometimes perceived as white noise, advertising can manipulate
consumers into acting according to the wishes of corporations. In fact, it has
been stated that about 98% of today’s advertising is trash.
The film Art &
Copy explores the other 2%. It speaks of the great creative minds that have
convinced brands (and society) to become more. In the words of the film’s director
Doug Pray, “Art & Copy inspires artists and writers to strive to make more
meaningful, more entertaining, or more socially uplifting ads.” The film
reveals the work that resulted from the creative revolution of the 1960s; it
reveals the work that was created to rise above the association of mediocrity
or manipulation. In the documentary, creatives such as George Lois, Mary Wells,
Dan Wieden, Lee Clow, and Hal Riney explain their motivations and inspirations for
campaigns such as “Just Do It," "I
Love NY," "Where's the Beef?," "Got Milk," and
"Think Different.” Art & Copy
explores the connection between communication, art, commerce, and human emotion
in an effort to make a difference.
