What makes some of the creative leaders of our industry legends? What or who inspired them to pursue the career they did? What inspires them today? And how do they inspire those around them to think differently? These are the questions that “Inspiration” a documentary film series created by Rick Boyko in partnership with The ADVERTISING Club of New York / International ANDY Awards illustrate.
