Establishing divisions devoted to broadcast branding, commercials and music videos, and feature development as well as editing and design, Crossroads has positioned itself as a complete production entity, and the company's directors have availed themselves of the range of creative possibilities. Mark Pellington, coming off his latest feature experience with The Mothman Prophecies, directed the new, Paul Hogan-less Subaru campaign out of Temerlin-McClain. Nick Lewin, the director behind such spots as VW's "Escape" ("Hey Booboo") and "Ransom," and the Royal Caribbean "Get Out There" campaign, recently undertook a Cingular campaign based on classic New York icons and attitudes. X-ray's Jesse Peretz has also branched out with his first feature, The Chateau.

The company's entertainment division has a first-look deal with United Artists and has a number of projects in development. The company has already participated in features including Jawbreaker, First-Love, Last Rites, The Big Split and The Chateau.
