After celebrating its 15th anniversary last year, Chelsea created more memorable moments on ESPN "Without Sports," for which Kieran Walsh deftly applied his skills to portray a soccer-impassioned family. Nicholas Barker directed spots for Pizza Hut, Stella Artois, and did some holiday rump-shaking with Vaughn for Kmart/Joe Boxer. Ago Panini, who transferred from Moxie, introduced surreal scenarios to Toyota; Gregg Hale, of Blair Witch fame, lensed spots for the Olympics NYC2012 campaign; and Clips-master Evan Bernard deflated celebrity egos for Blink 102.7 Last fall, the shop expanded its in-house effects studio to Chelsea Digital. It recently parted ways with Mehdi Norowzian, but welcomed KesselsKramer creative superstar Johan Kramer into its stable.
