All-around player Nick Lewin united pods for Volkswagen and Apple, went old school for Converse, and accentuated gender differences for Budweiser. Bruce Hurwit gave the Grim Reaper the axe for NY Lottery, and Sebastien Grousset glorified moonwatching for Infiniti. Spots from the shop's European directors also showed artful and comedic storytelling for overseas clients. Crossroads recently signed feature director Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break and Near Dark) and gold lion-winner Brandon Dickerson (to X-Ray extension). It also joined forces with South African hotshop Velocity Afrika.
