Director Tony Scott helped to drive BBDO New York's Dodge Ram challenge, directing a series of webisodes that captured construction workers and fireman tackling a custom built obstacle course. His nephew Jake Scott made art out of steering in BMW's multiplatform "Expression of Joy" campaign, while Chris Cunningham reappeared on the scene with the ethereal Flora film for Gucci. Out of RSA division, Little Minx, French directing collective H5 made brands come alive in the Hollywood blockbuster-style short animated film Logorama.

The company shored up its ranks on the new era production front as well. Agency production vet Tom Dunlap, who headed up production at W+K Amsterdam and Deutsch L.A. joined the company as executive producer, charged with addressing new business models, building the company's digital strategy and finding new production opportunities in the evolving industry landscape. Mary Lisio also joined the ranks as senior VP of non-fiction and branded entertainment, from Actual Reality Pictures. There she had steered development of reality series and RJ Cutler's recent Vogue documentary, The September Issue.
