Building upon its already impressive stable of multidimensional talent, Anonymous Content has signed French native Frederic Planchon for commercial and film representation. Formerly at Academy in the U.S., the highly sought after talent's portfolio is replete with award-winning work for Coca-Cola, Orange, Jeep, HP, Nintendo, Vodafone and many other high-profile brands. His most recent work, a much anticipated spot for Guinness out of the UK is slated to debut in the coming weeks.

Frederic's numerous advertising awards include a Silver Lion at Cannes, Director of the Year at the Masters of Advertising and a D&AD Pencil for Best Direction. Outside of the advertising space, Planchon has directed music videos and the short film


, which won the Prix de L'Image at the Festival de L'Image du Film.

"I've been a big fan of Frederic's for 15 years, and the timing was finally perfect for us to get together," noted Anonymous Content EP/Head of Commercials Dave Morrison. "Anonymous has a strong hold on the high-end, visual storytelling market and Frederic's skillset is obviously perfect for this. Now, we will continue to ramp up his commercial career in the U.S. and position him strongly in the features arena, like our other directors."
