    Chicago director Steve James will speak at Energy's next Creative Salon Thursday February 9th at 4.

    James is the director of the award winning Hoop Dreams documentary. You remember Hoop Dreams. It is that awesome documentary that followed the lives of two young Chicago basketball players with dreams of the NBA for 6 years.

    James’s latest work, The Interrupters, which he produced, directed and shot himself, follows three former gang members working with the local CeaseFire program to intervene in violent conflicts in the community. The film premiered last year at the Sundance Film Festival and has gone on to receive widespread critical acclaim.

    RSVP immediately!

    Just another day at the office. We do this to printers and projectors all the time.

    Wilson, Prince or any other tennis brand should really take advantage of this.

    Well Ad Age released their Agency A-List yesterday. Do we care, not really but in case you do and you didn't catch it here is a a link to all the glory. Yes, McGarry Bowen is agency of the Year again. Yes some of the agencies on the lists have offices in Chicago but check out Burnett on the Agency A-List of Agencies to watch. Interesting...

    More importantly here is Creativity's A-List. No surprises here. Droga5 takes it followed by the usually listers.

    In case you were slammed at work making a mirror in Photoshop or writing the side effect copy of a pharma ad and didn't see this yesterday.

    Last year it was the kid in a Darth Vador costume, it looks like VW is really latching onto The Star Wars brand. Hmmm. We do love that greyhound at the end....
