Anonymous Content has signed Danish director Rune Milton for commercial representation in North America, as well as film and television literary management. Milton’s narrative-driven work includes campaigns for global brands Nike, Toyota, McDonald’s, Carlsberg, and Ikea.
This marks Milton's first time being repped in the U.S. market. He continues to be handled in the U.K. by Rogue Films.
Currently based in Copenhagen, Milton began incubating his unique style as an editor for the Danish online agency Framfab in 2006. He demonstrated a natural talent for conceptual work, helping create award-winning content for Nike, including Nike Football’s “The Chain” campaign and the Nike spot “The Perfect Kick,” both of which were honored with Cannes Lions, Epica and Clio Awards. This led to a creative position at Danish agency HjaltelinStahl in 2009, which would be the last stop in the agency world before fully devoting himself to directing.
His film, “To Give More,” for Nordic electronics retailer Elkjøp, created with Stockholm’s DDB Nord, received acclaim when it broke last year.
“Rune is a storyteller first and foremost, and his ability to identify and visually convey the core emotion of each project is what makes his work so compelling,” said Eric Stern, Anonymous Content managing director and partner.
“There's something about Anonymous Content that really resonates with me on a deep level,” said Milton. “I put my heart and soul into every film I make, trying to find something meaningful and personal to say. And looking at their output in all forms, it's clear Anonymous does the same.”
