Washington Square Films has signed director Anson Fogel for U.S. commercial representation. Anson's carefully imagined style is defined by rich sound and picture as showcased in his cinematic work for such top brands as Apple, Volkswagen, Burger King, GE, Microsoft, The North Face, Red Bull, National Geographic, Jeep and Marriott. With a diverse skillset as a director, writer, producer and DP, he brings a holistic approach to his enigmatic work spanning commercials, experimental shorts, feature films and photography. He is currently nominated for a 2019 Emmy Award for Outstanding Commercial for his work on the iPhone 'Don’t Mess With Mother' spot.
Washington Square Films director of sales and marketing, Jonathan Schwartz, says: “Anson’s work is incredibly cinematic and incorporates wonderful storytelling and impeccable attention to detail. We are incredibly happy to have him join the family.”
“The team at Washington Square Films truly cares about the work and is very creative and forward-thinking in their business model and approach to the industry,” adds Fogel. “Their diverse involvement across cinema and advertising is vital for where the industry is going.”
Anson's lifelong passion for film was ignited by a childhood spent exploring rural mountains and engulfing himself in books, movies and music. He built his career on the crew side, beginning his work on set as an AC, then spending seven years as a DP before directing for brands, documentary and television work. He has won over 20 major film festival awards, including the Grand Prize and three other awards at Banff 2011, Grand Prize at New Zealand, The Fowler Award at Telluride, The Camera prizes at Trento and Gratz, and had two narrative short film premieres at major film festivals. He is currently based in Boulder, Utah.
