Principals: Mike Mills and Roman Coppola, Co-Presidents; Cayce Cole, Executive Producer

Roster: Rodney Ascher, Roman Coppola, Sofia Coppola, Melodie McDaniel, Geoff McFetridge, Mike Mills, Shynola

Mike Mills brought the feel-good full throttle on crowd and awards show pleasers "Bubble Boy" and "Chain Reaction," while exposing his comedic chops on what-if scenarios for Time Warner Cable. Roman Coppola resurrected a Thunderbirds-style puppet look for the campy Orbitz campaign, and Melodie McDaniel charmed audiences by exposing the sweet vulnerability of Yahoo!'s internet daters. In May, U.K. directing collective Shynola, known for their innovative multi-media work in clips, joined the team.
