Example text

Movies are storytelling. As is a TV commercial. Movies have all the new cinematic techniques, also germane to my craft. And they are a good escape from the business. There’s a tendency to stay cooped up with yourself when creating. Don’t stay in your copywriting ivory tower. Get out there. Learn and learn some more. It’s a process that’ll never end. The ability to read massive amounts of material, the ability to integrate all that data, to be disciplined in your study process? That’s what college is anyway.

In your new role, how will you satisfy your passion for the work? Sullivan: There was a time in my life where the greatest joys were either seeing my work air on TV or winning a Gold Pencil for it at the One Show. But as I’ve aged, my joys are more often felt on behalf of the successes of other people. In part, I think this has something to do with becoming a father. I have mentored juniors off and on throughout my working career and it always thrilled me when their work was sold and produced, or resulted in a winning pitch.

Personally, I think such an ethic is destructive, even for young people. It’s not a sustainable model, not on a personal level anyway. It’s probably sustainable for the shops—they just need to keep the new meat coming in the side door as the burnouts are being poured out the back. But it’s not for me. Nothing is that important anymore. Only my family. Tuten: You have a magic, fairy wand. If you wave it, you can change one thing about advertising that you hate. What do you change? Sullivan: Clients would no longer ask agencies to do creative for new business pitches.
