It is an honour to have been asked to judge the 2017 AOC Awards. I am amongst some pretty stellar company on the judging panel including Carol S. Eliel the Curator of Modern Art at LACMA & Philly Adams the Senior Director of Saatchi Gallery in London. The AOC Awards honour production and post production companies who have transformed the making of commercials and music videos into a modern day form of art and entertainment. All AOC 2017 first place award winning production companies will screen and discuss their creative work with Soho House members at their houses in West Hollywood, New York, London, Berlin and Toronto. The Art of Creativity Award Presentations will take place at each Soho House prior to the screening and panel discussion. All screenings and discussions will begin mid-September, starting in West Hollywood and wrapping up mid-October in Toronto, with New York, London and Berlin all scheduled in between. Submissions open April 1st.
