Jules Daly of RSA Films Named Chairperson of the 25th Annual AICP Show
Matt Miller, President and CEO of the Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP) announced today that Jules Daly, President of RSA Films, will serve as Chairperson of the 2016 AICP Show: The Art & Technique of the American Commercial. The AICP Show is one of the tent-pole events of AICP Week, which also includes the debut of the AICP Next Awards, as well as various educational sessions at the AICP Week Base Camp. AICP Week will take place in New York from June 7, 2016 – June 9, 2016.
“Chairing the Show during its 25th anniversary year is an incredibly special honor,” noted Daly. “Since it began in 1992, the AICP Show has been the industry standard for honoring craft and creativity, as well as being an archive of such amazing and groundbreaking advertising content.”
“Jules and RSA have done so much innovative work over the years, that it makes sense that she would oversee the Show during this landmark year,” said Miller. “RSA has produced numerous pieces that are now in the Show archive, and will continue to do so well into the future.”
Daly, who earlier in her career exclusively produced commercials for renowned directors Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, also worked with legendary commercial directors such as Joe Pytka. She was named President of RSA (which has offices in Los Angeles, New York and London) in 2001, and under her leadership, the company has won numerous industry accolades. RSA currently counts 30 directors on its roster, and produces music videos, short films and features. In addition to commercials, Daly has produced several movies, including “The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford,” “The A-Team” and “Grey.”
