Brian Billow of production house O Positive directed and came up with the creative premise for this AICP Awards call-for-entries film which underscores that winning an AICP honor--and getting your work into the archives of the Department of Film at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)--is pretty heady stuff. And it’s gone to the head of a few notable creatives who have taken on alternate personalities such as Pete Favat, chief creative officer of Deutsch North America, channeling his inner Andy Warhol, even renaming the ad agency The Factory (the moniker for Warhol’s famous art studio in NY).

Also swept away by their work being recognized in perpetuity by MoMA are Susan Credle, global CCO of FCB, who we see assuming the persona of Frida Kahlo, and Keith Cartwright, ECD, 72andSunny, who’s become Jean-Michele Basquiat.

The entry deadline for this year’s AICP Awards is March 9, with an extended deadline of March 16 (late fees will apply for the latter). The AICP Awards premiere during AICP Week, June 12-14 in New York. The AICP Next Awards debut on the evening of June 12 at The Tishman Auditorium. The AICP Show gala premieres on June 14 at MoMA.
