An anonymous source tells us BBDO New York Chairman and Chief Creative Officer Bill Bruce is looking to expand his resume with directing work, and is currently shopping production houses like Ridley Scott Associates.
BBDO declined to comment and RSA did not return a call requesting comment by the time this story was published.
We were able to verify with another source that Bruce is pursuing his directing career. In fact the creative has already broken in with work for New Balance and, we hear, another yet-to-debut campaign. It’s hard to say if or when the change will occur, but after 20 years with BBDO he’s likely ready for the next step.
