AICP Week is set to kick off with a new venue for its series of Base Camp seminars and a new schedule for the premieres of its suite of AICP Awards competitions: The AICP Show: The Art & Technique of the Commercial, the AICP Next Awards and the AICP Post Awards.
Base Camp events will take place at Ease, the conference and event space located at 1345 Avenue of the Americas at 54th Street, around the corner from The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), while the awards show premieres will take place during the day at MoMA. At the gala presentation that caps AICP Week events at MoMA, AICP’s 32nd such celebration, the Best of Show winners for each AICP competition will be revealed and a special tribute to all winning work will be screened.
Highlights include the opening day session at Base Camp on June 6th, which will focus on business affairs. This full-day event will feature panels and discussions examining the most compelling legal issues facing our industry and emerging business affairs issues related to technology. It includes the always-popular “Lawyers on the Clock” session, as well as presentations on post production, green production, working with AI and issues surrounding equity and inclusion. This day of programming is both included with AICP Week All Access passes and available as an a la carte option. Click here for more details.
Two sessions on this day will address the growing impact of AI. In the session titled “Legal Perspective: What the Advertising Business Needs to Know About Artificial Intelligence (AI),” Attorney Hannah E. Taylor, Partner and Co-Chair of the Blockchain Technology and Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations Groups at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC, will discuss how brands and those working on their behalf are using generative AI tools, addressing the ownership and authorship issues, what AI means for common advertising agreement provisions and other key concerns.
Additionally, there will be a case study presentation from Anomaly, in which Jason DeLand, Founding Partner, and Shannon Green, Global General Counsel, will recap the making of its 2022 ‘LyricAlly’ music video for client Ally, which was one of very first uses of Stability AI’s DreamStudio API. DeLand and Green will discuss the unique business and legal context of ‘early days’ agency production using generative AI tools and share lessons learned and guiding principles to optimize generative AI into the future.
Wednesday, June 7th, will be devoted to creative inspiration, as the world premieres of the AICP Show and the AICP Next Awards take place at MoMA. The Next Awards screening will include a panel discussion featuring the creators of the Most Next Award (Best of Show). Meanwhile, the most creative minds in the industry will take the stage at Ease for the popular “Curators in Conversation” session, during which curators from each AICP competition sit down for short (seven minutes), highly focused conversations with people who inspire them.
Also on tap for Wednesday is a discussion on growing and nurturing directors’ careers. In the session titled “The Directors Perspective: Growing a Career,” moderated by David Kolbusz, Chief Creative Officer of Orchard, directors DAPS of Anonymous Content and Radha Ganti of Somesuch’s directorial duo King She will share insights into their careers, achievements and creative processes.
AICP Week concludes on Thursday with a lineup of stellar events designed to showcase excellence and recognize those whose work has risen above the rest. The AICP Post Awards will premiere at the The Museum of Modern Art, following the presentation of the AICP Post Impact Award. This year, that honor goes to Editor Hank Corwin, founder of the post boutique Lost Planet, in recognition of a career of creative achievement in both commercials and feature films, as well setting standards for quality and dedication that have been felt throughout the post production industry.
That evening, “A Tribute to 2023 Excellence” takes place at MoMA, as the AICP Awards Show Chairs – Sally Campbell of Somesuch, Chair of the AICP Show; Jen Dean of Cut+Run, Chair of the AICP Post Awards; and Greg Hahn of Mischief, Judging Chair of the AICP Next Awards – unveil the work honored as the “Best in Show” in their respective competitions in addition to paying tribute to the full collection of winners. The premiere is followed by a gala reception that will take place throughout the Museum and Sculpture Garden.
