Sedelmaier Film Production, Chicago
As TV commercials crowded and cluttered the programing environment, agencies sought "breakthrough techniques," creative ways to stop viewers in their tracks and engage them during commercial breaks. Enter Joe Sedelmaier. A successful Y&R and JWT art director-producer who opened a film production studio in 1967, he developed clutter-cracking commercials that featured the most unlikely, off-beat, one-of-a-kind non-actors and broke new ground. Sedelmaier's zaniness was evident in his work for Wendy's, ("Where's the beef?") and Federal Express ("Fast talker"), creating public and industry cutting-edge "buzz."
