This morning brought a tweet from the ANA, the first in a series of self promotion articles by Jillian Gibbs, the founder of Advertising Production Resources, aka APR.
Now I know, like and respect Jillian and what she has built, but this article bills her as "ANA faculty." That seems a rather extraordinary designation for an outside vendor; since outside vendors cannot be members or otherwise gain sanctioned access to ANA members. I note that no other production consultancy has anything remotely resembling the intimate relationship that Jillian has built with the ANA.
It seems as though there has been a strategic decision by the ANA to allow APR and no other production consultants to shoot fish in the ANA barrel.
