VDA Goes Mad!
A Resource For Event News & Insight (Jan 10 2011)
We get to create and work on some very cool projects here at VDA Productions, and what is cooler right now than Mad Men? Set in 1960s New York, the sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama Mad Men follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell.
The Premise: The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper (Hamm), the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960s traditional family values.
Here are some pictures of me creating a Mad Men themed holiday party:
Ever wonder what it would be like to be on the set? You can "Mad Men Yourself" here.
I think I could pass for Midge Daniels, what do you think?
Dream and create big!
