Lance Acord propelled Park into the rankings this year, thanks to his photographic elegance on Volvo, Mitsubishi, Ace, Adidas, Lee and, of course, Nike, on the highly-decorated "Before," and in a surprisingly comedic turn on the cheerleader-chasin' "Cross-Country Spirit." All this while he managed to also apply his graceful lens to yet another feature, Sofia Coppola's upcoming Lost in Translation, which has already garnered critical acclaim. Meanwhile, the other directors played no small part in cementing the shop's rep: Alison Maclean delievered subtle, comedic performance for Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, Ramaa Mosley brought out characters' quirky charm on Callaway and the PGA, as did Lara Shapiro on Huggies. Neil Abramson also took root at Park, from the shuttered Palomar Pictures.
