In partnership with Free the Work, GS&P is proud to launch RESIDENCE, a directors-in-residence program featuring 12 dynamic young filmmakers who will collaborate with us to expand the ways in which we tell brand stories.
The inaugural cohort includes filmmakers Shaandiin Tome, winner of the best short documentary for Long Line of Ladies at the 2022 SXSW; Kadri Koop, cinematographer for On the Line: The Richard Williams Story, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival; and Shadae Lamar Smith, will.i.am’s former creative director. Learn more about the artists, the program, and executive director JP Patterson at the RESIDENCE here.
It is a cliche to say that someone gave advertising a conscience, even a soul. That they put what we do in a wider context. That they demanded we make things that were welcome, thoughtful, even life-changing.
That would be a cliche. Unless you said it about David Kennedy. We will miss him.
This weekend Briana Patrick became ADCOLOR'S “Rising Star of 2021.” And Apshara Islam was a stand out in the ADCOLOR Futures program. We could not be more proud of these two women who are rising up and changing our agency and industry for the better!
