After reports surfaced that the Department of Justice would investigate advertising agencies regarding their production practices, particularly the transparency—or lack thereof—in the bidding process, The Association of National Advertisers released its “Production Transparency in the U.S. Advertising Industry” report last week. The 30-page paper involved twelve subject-matter experts, eleven of which agree transparency concerns exist between clients and their creative agency partners. One of the challenges is the gray area permitted by 50+ years of highly subjectable and non-standardized production practices. A critical issue is the lack of standardization that provides full visibility into the production process and fosters a sense of trust and partnership between brands and agencies.
We are pleased to announce that the StudioNow team at Coca-Cola Studios has been named the winner for multiple entries in the 2017 Telly Awards.

The StudioNow team had the pleasure of attending and sponsoring the annual ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference last week in San Diego, CA. It was a one-of-a-kind event bringing together over 700 top-tier brand marketing, procurement and finance professionals with key industry stakeholders. Well respected speakers led the charge discussing hot topics ranging from how to better connect to consumers digitally, to the value of transparency in production. Timely topics, engaging debates paired with thoughtful Q&A sessions and a lively dialogue made this year’s ANA AFM Conference an invaluable event to attend.
Though the four-day event has come and gone, we were so inspired by the speakers who illuminated the conference stage that we have compiled some of their most inspiring quotes to share with you.
