Comments from Industry.


– Chicago Sun-Times

“A deeply fascinating movie…you’ll probably never be able to look at commercials and ads the same way again.” 


“Like a good ad, Art & Copy bounds along and never bores. That’s a big credit to Pray’s savvy compilation and of editor Philip Owens’ crisp cuts.” 

– Hollywood Reporter

“The joy that these creative types experience when their work is successful and the seriousness with which they approach their craft comes shining through. Along the way, viewers get caught up in their exuberance.”
