Last year's high end U.S. projects, particularly Malcolm Venville's VW "Squares" put Anonymous in the spotlight during awards season. The shop headed into fall with new exec producer Lisa Margulis and into the new year with another former HKM talent, director Christian Loubek. After directing the domestic bliss of the Arquettes for Coke, David Fincher returned with Nike's CG sensation "Speed Chain" and is gearing up for the next Xelibri effort from London. Meanwhile, up and comers Carter and Blitz collected accolades with their Mill Valley Film Festival laffer out of Hill Holliday. The Gorgeous tie-up yielded gems including Frank Budgen's Nike "Streaker," Tom Carty's Nike "More Go" work and Peter Thwaites' nice NASCAR campaign. Now, Anonymous will exploit U.K. creative for its U.S. directors with a link with Independent's Jani Guest in London (see story, p. 43).
